Low Carb Cream Cheese Cookies

September 21, 2017
Low Carb Cream Cheese Cookies

I found this recipe at www.lowcarbyum.com and decided to give it a try.  I made the dough and then only cooked some of the cookies.  And I took no pictures! But I saved the dough, and made some more last night – and we were thrilled with my changes. I found the original batch a bit bland, we ate them, but felt they needed something! So last night, I took granulated sweetener and a little powdered swerve and mixed it with…

How to Make Raspberry Liqueur

September 19, 2017
Raspberry Liqueur

Sometimes I go off on a wayward path for no reason.  This is one of those times.  Over the summer we were making a recipe that called for  raspberry liqueur.  I didn’t have any on hand.  Probably because I hadn’t even heard of it before.  I did a quick online search and realized it’s a pricey liquor store item.  I didn’t want to spend the money. Also it was about 8:00 am on a Sunday and liquor stores don’t open…

Keto Shrimp

September 14, 2017
Keto Shrimp

So Russell and I have been following the Ketogenic Diet and I have been making these shrimp quite a bit. We love them! You could easily customize it to meet your likes. I basically take several table spoons of Kerrygold butter, garlic, crushed red pepper, Salt & Pepper, and parmesan cheese and mix it all together with thawed frozen shrimp (I get peeled no tail, but anything would work).  I lay it all on a sheet pan lined with aluminum foil…

The Egg & I in Colorado Springs

The Egg & I in Colorado Springs

We enjoyed such a good breakfast in Colorado Springs.  We ate at The Egg & I.  Kerry and Rose searched the internet that morning looking for a great spot and they nailed it. The restaurant is pretty and is located in a small shopping area.  We were early birds that morning and arrived before they opened at 7:00 AM but it was worth the wait. Our server was amazing.  She knew we were traveling and pointed out some great places…

Gella’s Diner & Lb. Brewing Co. in Hays, KS

Gella's Diner & Lb. Brewing Co.

Kerry was traveling with me on this portion of the road trip.  We left Colorado Springs around noon and headed East.  We drove through Kansas most of the day.  It was a great drive, the roads were flat with low traffic and we could see for miles and miles! The picture above was taken during the drive that day.  Pick a place along the 400 miles or so and it would pretty much look the same!  I thought it was…

Aldi Low Carb Elevation by Millville Carb Conscious Bars Part 2

August 1, 2017
Aldi Low Carb Elevation Bars

We tried 2 more flavors of these bars. See my first post here. Cranberry Almond This one has 2 grams of Net Carbs. It was pretty good, I liked it, and will finish the box, but not sure that I would buy them again. Chocolate Coconut I don’t do coconut, but Russell does, he liked these.  I can’t find them on the website, only ones with almonds in them.  He said he would like them again. Have tried these bars…

The Airplane Restaurant in Colorado Springs

The Airplane Restaurant in Colorado Springs, CO

On our road trip we had one day in Colorado Springs.  Before the trip I researched great places to eat and The Airplane Restaurant caught my eye.  I absolutely love airplanes so choosing to dine there was a no brainer! The restaurant has so much to look at inside.  All of the details are incredible. While you wait for a seat you are given a boarding pass.  The employees were  dressed in uniforms that you would see in the airline…

Tamaliza Cafe in Sedona, Arizona

On our recent road trip across the country we went to Sedona.  It’s one of my favorite places but it’s been many years since I was there.  We had a great morning driving from Tucson then we went to check out Prescott before heading into Sedona.  When we would get close to a city my daughter’s job was to find a restaurant that she would like.  She is a major foodie so if a restaurant get’s her approval then we…

Skinny Margarita Recipe

Margarita ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

Everyone has their favorite Mexican Restaurant – and ours happens to be Mexicali Cantina in Frederick, Maryland.  We used to go there every single Friday night, the owner always would come and chat with us and the wait staff all knew us!   We still go there a lot!  Eating low carb, makes going out for Mexican a little tricky!  They now know, don’t bring us chips, but instead, bring us celery and carrot sticks.  We have them pretty trained,…

Oh Yeah! One Bar ~ www.fabuousindeed.com

I am always looking for portable snacks to keep in my purse or when I just need a quick snack. I like to keep them at work too, and like to munch on one like this on days they serve cakes or donuts or something, just to not even been tempted!  Low carb bars aren’t easy to come by, and frankly a lot of them don’t taste that good. I picked up 4 of these Oh Yeah! One Bars recently.…
