Cherry Pie Cookie Bars

May 28, 2018
Cherry Pie Cookie Bars

Pioneer Woman is one of the few cooking shows that I will sit through.  I watched an episode a few months ago where she made these cherry pie cookie bars.  My son was watching and kept commenting on how good they looked so I mentally took note and added it to my list of things to try.  Fast forward a couple of months and I finally tried it. The full recipe and directions can be found on the Food Network…

Blu Rose Art Bistro

January 20, 2018
Blu Rose Art Bistro

I love to try new locally owned restaurants and I just recently learned about Blu Rose Art Bistro in Douglasville, Georgia. It’s located in Downtown Douglasville in a beautiful historic building.  The food is great and the Owners are so nice!  Be sure to have the Blu Berry & Mint Lemonade! It was divine! The interior of the bistro is lovely.  The bar top is handcrafted and the art displayed is by local artists. There are different events held at…

Potato Soup Recipe

January 11, 2018
Potato Soup

At a time of year that most people have resolutions to be healthier I learned to make potato soup!  I didn’t realize until I was making it just how much cream and butter and everything that is not good for you went into this soup!  That probably explains why it is so darn good!  The weather in Atlanta was so very cold for a few weeks so hearty soup just hit the spot! Everyone knows by now that I’m certainly…

Macadamia Crusted Salmon

December 6, 2017
macadamia crusted salmon

I have no idea where I first found this recipe…but I believe a Chiropractor that I used to see is the one who shared it with me.  But it is so good! 8-10 Macadamia nuts per piece of fish 21 Seasoning Salute Bacon if desired.  Honestly, I always desire bacon, I just sometimes don’t desire the mess to make it! I throw the nuts and the seasoning into my ninja chopper and go to town. I get this salmon from…

More New Halo Top Fall 2017

November 8, 2017
Halo Top

I have talked about Halo Top Ice Cream before.  They released quite a few new flavors this year, and we (for the sake of research) tried three more!! Pancakes & Waffles I would never think an ice cream should be called “pancakes & waffles” and honestly didn’t think this was a great idea.  It was pretty good, not my fave but pretty good.  Check out the chunks! Pumpkin Pie As you can see this is a Seasonal Flavor, I had…

Low Carb Meatball Sub

I found this amazing blog called:  Simply So Healthy and have really fallen in love.  This is a mom and daughter and they come up with amazing recipes!!! I saw these Meatball Subs and was like, oh yes, perfect for Football Season! I’ll let you get the recipe from their site.  I will confess, I am not nearly as fancy as they are, they made their meatballs, I bought mine.  They also made their sauce, you guessed it, I bought…

Dining Options at the Mandalay Bay Hotel – Part One

October 26, 2017
The Burger Bar

Mandalay Bay is my favorite hotel in Las Vegas and I look forward to my visit there for many reasons.  I certainly look forward to the restaurants.  We always eat at the Burger Bar but this was my first dining experience at Citizens. Citizens is located near the Mandalay Bay casino and is open 24 hours a day.  We visited Las Vegas in early July, we drove to Vegas from Tucson early in the morning and then stopped to see…

October 20, 2017
Muffins

I found this video on You Tube and decided to give these muffins a try.  Do yourself a favor, watch these ladies.  They are really funny! Naturally, I didn’t completely follow the recipe. I have made them a couple of times, and have made a few slight changes – I will share them as I go! For the muffins: 3 1/2 cups almond flour 6 eggs 1 oz coconut oil 1 oz softened butter 1/2 cup erythritol (I used powdered…

My Attempt at Making a Pull Apart Cake

October 16, 2017
Pull apart cake

I recently saw this great video by So Yummy on Facebook with amazing pull apart cake ideas.  The flamingo cake first caught my eye but I was in the market to make my husband a birthday cake this weekend so I didn’t think a Flamingo cake would be appreciated as much.  I decided on this beer mug.  My husband doesn’t drink beer that much so I was selling it as a Root Beer cake.  It was random at best but…

Maryland Crab Dip

October 11, 2017
Maryland Crab Dip

I made this recently, and let me tell you what, it was soooooo good! I live in Maryland, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise, Marylanders know their crab!  I love being somewhere and having something on the menu that says Maryland crab…whatever.  I am always like, sure!  (it never is by the way!).  Russell and I follow a ketogenic diet, so ate it with veggies or even a spoon! But if you don’t follow a ketogenic diet then you…
