Last night (once again) I found myself stumped. I had prepared dinner for everyone else (Mac n’ Cheese, and it looked so good that I wanted to dig in), but I had no idea what the heck was I going to make for myself. I only had about 14 carbs left for the day and… Continue reading Cauliflower Fried “Rice”
Where there's a will, there's a way! My Gluten-Free, Low-Carb, Low-Sugar Banana Muffins... made with REAL banana!!!!
Yesterday was National Bagel Day! For most people, I'm sure it was a delicious, carb-filled breakfast or midday office treat. For others, like myself, who have to watch how many carbs they take in each day, it was a sad, sad, lonely bagel-free day. BUT, it doesn't have to be anymore! I found a delicious… Continue reading Incredible Low-Carb, Gluten-Free Bagels!
Food hasn't exactly been my friend lately. Last summer, I found out (the hard way) that I have to avoid wheat at all costs. We had taken the kids to the Crayola Experience and after a lunch of pizza, I had a massively terrible reaction. Hives, swelling, and quickly losing the ability to speak, my… Continue reading This Food Journey Has Been Challenging…
Every year, our oldest daughter requests pierogis for her birthday dinner. They are her absolute favorite and, really, who came blame her?! I know I have shared this recipe once before, but seeing as how today is National Pierogi Day, I thought that I would share it again! If you can't whip up a batch… Continue reading It’s National Pierogi Day!
I know that I haven't posted much over these past several months. No, I didn't give up blogging. There's actually a pretty good reason why I have gone AWOL: I haven't been doing a whole lot of cooking over the past several months! *GASP!!* "No cooking?!" That's right, ladies and gents, I said it! I… Continue reading I Have Some Exciting News!
Last night, our normal dinner routine was a bit off. Typically I would have started making dinner between 4:30- 5:30 p.m., but we FINALLY had some sunshine yesterday and I wanted to make sure to let the kids take full advantage of it! We went outside a little bit before 3pm and enjoyed soaking up… Continue reading Skillet Beef and Vegetables over Parmesan Risotto
Having seven children typically does not allow for a lot of free time for mom & dad to spend together without someone needing something... That being said, it's SO wonderful to be able to have SOME alone time! Tonight, my husband took me out for an absolutely wonderful birthday dinner at The Capital Grille in… Continue reading An Amazing Birthday Dinner
Happy Saturday! Today started off wet and foggy in our neck of New England (you know, the kind of day where you just want to crawl back in bed and stay snuggled up under the covers until the sun comes out? ...yeah, that kind of day). I was hoping to do a bunch of yardwork… Continue reading *8 Freezer Meals in Under 2 Hours!*
WOW! I can't believe it's already Easter season! One of my favorite things about this time of year is finding paczki (pronounced "poonch-key") at our local Big Y Supermarket. They may look like your everyday donut but paczki have some differences that make them well-worth the excitement of seeking them out every year right before… Continue reading Happy Mardi Gras!
