CITRUS HERB ROASTED CHICKEN

CITRUS HERB ROASTED CHICKEN

  My friend Jessica and I have a birthday tradition. Every year for our birthdays we make each other dinner. Given that Jessica and I are both foodies these aren’t your average dinners. Last year Jessica made me homemade ravioli and she always has the […]

SUGAR-FREE STRAWBERRY JAM

SUGAR-FREE STRAWBERRY JAM

  I love jams with berries. Whenever I’m in the grocery store I see all these wonderful jams made with fresh local berries. Then I turn the jar over and see how much sugar is in it and put it back. One of my favourite […]

ORANGE ALMOND CAKE

ORANGE ALMOND CAKE

  I’m always looking for low-carb snacks and this cake it great for that mid afternoon treat or tea time. Since there is no flour in this, the key to getting it to rise are the egg whites. I use apple cider vinegar to stabilize […]

ROSEMARY HARISSA SPICED CASHEWS

ROSEMARY HARISSA SPICED CASHEWS

  I was helping my friend do a cheese platter for her New Year’s Eve party and she had some pecans to accompany the cheeses. We jazzed them up with some brown sugar and chili powder and they were a nice addition to the cheese […]

CHEESY CAULIFLOWER MASH

CHEESY CAULIFLOWER MASH

  I challenge you to try this recipe. Serve it to your family but don’t tell them what it is. They will say it’s cheesy mash potatoes. This is so good, It’s just like mashed potatoes. This low carb comfort food is now a staple […]

VANILLA ALMOND COOKIES

VANILLA ALMOND COOKIES

  These cookies were a happy mistake. I had made them before with just egg whites and they were hard. This time when I went to separate the egg whites I dropped and whole egg in the bowl and just went with it. The result […]
