Spiced Candied Bacon

After talking with a friend of mine about a new offering at Honey Baked Ham (honey baked bacon, anyone?), we were talking about the deliciousness that is candied bacon. I've always liked Honey Baked ham; with its spicy sweetness--but the thought of doing it with bacon is extra delicious sounding. Of course, the results were amazing!

Girl Scout Cookie Round Up

It's that time of year again: Girl Scout Cookie season! As a Girl Scout mom myself, I know how hard the temptation can be for wheat free low carbers such as yourself. With most cookies containing an average of 200 calories and 17g of sugar per serving, it's no wonder why we'd want to steer clear. I'm here to make that task a little bit easier on you by giving you this wonderful Girl Scout Cookie round up for the six most popular varieties so that you can make your own healthy Girl Scout Cookies right in your own home. Remember to donate to the Scouts in your neighborhood, though-- even a dollar helps!

Insanely Decadent Healthy Chocolate Cake

It's been a long time. I admit it. I haven't been on plan lately, and the holidays really got to me. After a month of whirlwind (non low carb, non gluten free) baking, I wrapped up my baddies with a super indulgent chocolate cake for my in-laws. I knew it would be the last carbage food I'd be making in awhile, and it got rave reviews. Naturally, I wanted to recreate it healthily. I then realized that I didn't have a straight up chocolate cake recipe anywhere on the blog, so I went to work. The results? Amazing.

The Gift of Giving

I wanted to take a few moments to tell all my readers a story, given the holiday season that is upon us. It doesn't have anything to do with food, diets, nutrition or health. Then again, if mental health counts, maybe it does. This post is deeply personal and contains some very private information that I am choosing to make public in the event that it should help another. After all, isn't that what the holidays are about?

I knew nothing then of what this little baby would do to my life,
but I was in for quite the ride.
