The peppermint cinnamon rolls were such a hit at our house, I thought I'd make another version that we enjoyed and you will as well. The creamy icing paired with the rich caramel sprinkles and buttery cinnamon roll will have you craving these on the regular.
I have been dreaming of this recipe for a long time. You are going to love the peppermint flavor combined with the cinnamon sweetness. These little beauties only lasted a few minutes after their photography session. I hope you enjoy them. They sure were fun to make (and eat).
I have been craving some chocolate chip cookies. Every year I bake batches and batches of cookies with the kids and put them in fancy little box. We take them to all our neighbors. It's a sweet tradition that we have loved doing for years. This year, I wanted to make sure I made some sugar free/low carb/keto friendly for myself and for loved ones. Here is the first of many treats I plan on making in the next few weeks. It's gooey and rich. Enjoy.
Being fairly knew to the keto | low carb way of eating I have found myself on a mission to recreate dishes that are like the ones I used to enjoy but within my carb limits. This was one of those dishes I enjoyed on special occasions, like Thanksgiving or Easter dinners. However, as part of the challenge of this way of eating, I have been looking for ways of cooking to replace the old favorites with new flavors. This dish did not disappoint.
Sometimes you just need something that is going to be yummy and satisfy your potato craving while getting in a hefty amount of fat in your diet with very few carbs. I was a huge skeptic in using turnips or radishes as a potato alternative. I'm so glad I didn't back down and you will be completely satisfied as well. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did putting it together for you.
I always feel the need to cook my husband a hardy breakfast on the mornings he gets to be home with us. For this meal I pulled out my largest, deepest cast iron skillet and made one of our favorite meals. I love to top this one with softened cream cheese just before I eat my own slice. It's delicious and filling.
This is an excellent way to use up extra chicken. We always have a rotisserie chicken during the week for a quick meal, or I buy the pulled rotisserie meat from Costco. Either way, we always have left over chicken and it ends up being perfect for soups during the week. I'm always experimenting with soups and I love the creamy ones best. My kids love soup too so they are always a hit. I hope you enjoy this one as much as we did.
I am on a mission to create some insanely good breakfast food for my family and this one right here made the list of INSANELY DELICIOUS. I was a tad excited yesterday when it came out of the oven and hit their plates. Even the babies enjoyed their portion. This can also be prepared the night before and baked in the morning if you want to save time before school or church. I hope you enjoy making it as much as I enjoyed. It is such a privilege and honor to be able to serve my family in such a simple way. Enjoy!
It had been a long while since I have cooked roast beef. I found a great deal on a piece of meat that was ample size for our large family. I really should cook this more often, as my kids absolutely loved it and we had left overs for next days sandwiches. It is full of favorite and super easy to make. It put it in the crock pot after the kids went off to school and by dinner we had a feast with a side of buttery green beans and the kids enjoyed some small seasoned potatoes. I truly hope you enjoy this simple and easy recipe with your family as well.
Sometimes it's simply nice to have a treat. Occasionally, I'll see a recipe pop up on my social media and wish so badly it was keto friendly or at least low carb. I do my best to take the ones that look the most delicious and try to make it exactly what I need it to be. Playing around with different ingredients can be fun but when it turns out fabulous, that's when I really get excited.
For me, my goal is to make delicious food that my family asks for over and over. My husband took one bite of these and insisted they go into his lunch box for lunch the next day. They were cheesy and full of flavor, easy to make and so yummy.
I recently purchased some organic coconut milk and have been contemplating how to to use it. I had an idea for a creamy sauce and decided it would be perfect for some chicken leg quarters I had roasted in the crock pot. So, for Sunday dinner I whipped up this amazingly creamy, smokey, sauce. The flavor was smooth and mild. I think the would even make an amazing base for a soup in the future. I hope you enjoy it.
I posted this years ago and wanted to share it again. As a busy family of 7 with a grocery shopping budget, it pays to have family dinners planned and ready for preparation. These dollar store bins and a few clips are just wanted I needed to organize. Each week I would write out a simple meal plan, I would go through the pantry and add items I already had to the bins, canned food, seasonings, veggies that are okay stored in a pantry, etc. I would check my list for items I would need to purchase.
I love to cook but only if the meals are healthy, easy, and yummy. .
