Mock of creamy little bananas.

With all the summer parties, I want to make sure that I bring something along everyone can enjoy as well as myself.  I prepared a mock banana cream pie.  The reason I say mock because there is no banana’s in this pie.  But you wouldn’t know that by the taste. I started off with a…

My journey with Ketogenic Diet.

So previously I shared my black walnut coffee chip ice cream with you.  It’s so yummy, I came across a unique chocolate waffle.  That I turned into a pancake and had to give it a spin. I got the recipe from Maria Emmerich cookbook “Keto comfort foods”.  I am unfortunately am unable to share the recipe…

Summertime

Summers are always a time of year that some of us look forward too.  Between graduations, birthday’s, new baby’s arriving, holidays, barbecues are just to name a few.  This time of the year seems to pass by so fast.  Just today I went to the store and they are putting away the summer furniture and…

Move over Mousse…

How many of you growing up remember having the choice of dessert: Mousse or was it called chocolate pudding.  The fancy words that create a new and luxurious meaning to just the simple things in life. Well, you take your ordinary pudding and add some whipping cream and blend and you have mousse. I am a…

I can eat ice cream.

I love me some ice cream and I want to believe that I gained so much weight from my addiction to sugar and the love of ice cream.  I was one of those people whom could not buy ice cream at the store because I would eat the whole 1/2 gallon by myself.   Going…

Creamy little chicken pie

When growing up; used to go to Marie Calendar’s and I would always get the chicken pot pie.  It was piping hot when it came out and was always served in a bowl.  Such sweet memories.  The topping was a flaky buttery pie crust with a creamy middle of chicken chunks and vegetables. Then when…

Who doesn’t love Gnocchi, Keto Style.

Well, I was out dining with hubs this past weekend.  At a restaurant, they had on the menu Pork Porterhouse with cauliflower gnocchi.  I was very intrigued and when I tasted it then my mind was like racing of all the ideas I could do.  So I came home and picked up a head of…

Sweet and Salty and yet addicting

Another requested goodie that appeared on a table at a recent graduation party.  I made some insanely good treats for the teenagers that were attending.  Salted Crunchy Carmel Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I understand these were a hit and am now posting the delicious recipe.  This is NOT KETO friendly, nor is it Low Carb. So…

On those cool summer mornings…chili is perfect.

More or less the time we generally eat chili is in the winter.  On a cool night, something to warm up the belly.   So living here in Michigan the weather is always unexplainable.  We live near the lake and many times it’s cooler here than inland.  Which makes that nice in all scenario’s.  …

Creamy buttery cookie

So this past weekend I had a graduation party to go to and  wanted to bring a delightful cookie along so that way I could indulge too, without being tempted by other desserts.   So I made this delightful cookie that somewhat reminded be of a shortbread cookie. Here are the ingredients: 1/2 cup coconut flour…

Where to Eat?

This past week I went on a road trip through the Midwest.  Eating out was a bit of a challenge; especially when it came to those small towns.  Choices are limited to mostly small family-owned eateries that I once only ate at.  I used Yelp a lot to help guide me, but I personally feel…

Who doesn’t want a bite of cheesecake?

Going to New York City and walking through the grand central station is a wonderful experience.  It’s like a mall, but with so much uniqueness.  The Grand Central Station has a market place where they sell food like a farmers market, restaurants and clothing stores.   Walking through the restaurants with Pizza aroma in the…
