Easy Skillet Keto Pizza

Easy Skillet Keto Pizza

This is my go to Low-Carb Pizza recipe, but when I am lazy I throw this easy skillet pizza together!! I first saw this method on Cooking Keto with Kristie on Youtube and had tried it then, and loved it.  Seriously watch her channel, you will fall in love! I saw it again when I recently found High Falutin Low Carb’s Youtube Channel and was inspired to give it a try again.  Seriously watch his channel, you will fall in…

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…

Low Carb Cream Cheese Cookies

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

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…

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…
