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 SUBS

October 27, 2017
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…

Muffins – Keto Approved

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…

Halo Top

I found a few of the new Halo Top Flavors.  The flavors launched:  Cinnamon Roll, Pancakes & Waffles, Chocolate Covered Bananas, Mochi Green Tea, Candy Bar, Rainbow Swirl, Caramel Macchiato, Pumpkin Pie. I picked up 3 of them!  Though they had most of them!  I saw Pumpkin Pie recently and didn’t grab it, and haven’t seen it since, and don’t remember where I saw it!  I don’t like Pumpkin Pie, but I love pumpkin!  Stay tuned, I will grab some…

Blue City Cafe in Memphis

September 28, 2017
Blues City Cafe

On our summer road trip we arrived into Memphis right at dinner time!  We traveled from Oklahoma that morning. We had a big breakfast at Pioneer Woman’s Mercantile and had not eaten since then!  My son and husband have eaten at Blues City Cafe a couple of times while they were on the Hot Rod Power Tour and loved it. My son really wanted to go there again and honestly I’ve never said no to BBQ!  Is that even an…

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Creamer Recipe

September 26, 2017
Pumpkin Spice Creamer

So as I revealed last week that I love all things Pumpkin Spice, well did I say I love all things pumpkin spice? Well if not, I did now 🙂 I love Pumpkin Spice.  Since doing the Ketogenic diet, Russell and I have missed the Pumpkin Spice Creamer that I used to buy.  They do sell a sugar-free version (full of chemicals, I probably don’t want), so I decided to try to make my own. I took Heavy Cream, a couple…
