Kristie's Perfectly Puffy Pancakes

My friend Kristie sent me this recipe that she created with much excitement. Her enthusiasm sold me immediately. "They're so fluffy," she said. "Even my kids ate them!" 
I've got my own pancake recipes, but this one looks downright delicious. The picture reminds me of a hoecake, which is a flapjack-like concoction made with corn meal instead of flour. 

I'll let Kristie take the reigns from here. Drumroll please.... and now...Kristie!!!!!

Asian Sweet Chili Chicken

My friend and fellow blogger Sooze (Fluffy Chix Cook) and I often speak about how much we miss a delicious wing sauce from Buffalo Wild Wings. It's the carbiest sauce on the menu: Asian Zing. It's chock full of high fructose corn syrup, but it's also jam packed with delicious flavor. Naturally, we don't eat it. That doesn't mean we can't make our own delicious low carb sweet Thai chili-inspired sauce for our chicken, though!

Peanut Butter & Jelly Cupcakes

I've been wanting to make peanut butter and jelly cupcakes for awhile now, and boy am I glad that I finally got around to it. These tasty mini cupcakes are just the right amount of sweet and have a delightful zing from the addition of the strawberry jam.

Cheesy Broccoli Soup

Yes, I know it's August. Yes, I know this is soup. Yes, I know you're sweating over there, cursing the hellish wrath of summertime, but I just couldn't help myself: I was craving soup. Badly.

Berries & Cream Crepe Cake

This beautiful creation is that of reader Barbara, who used a basic cream cheese pancake recipe to create a delicious, grain free dessert that is not too sweet but all kinds of delicious. This low carb crepe cake is nut free and features the great flavors of fresh strawberries and blueberries. I suspect this could also be made with frozen berries as well.
