Baby Greens and Strawberry Salad…Get Up and Grow with Dole

I have become a salad addict. Addict, I tell you.  Sometimes twice a day, but at least once a day.  Salad, salad, salad.  And though I am still living on minimal carbs with my new diet, I am a huge fan of tossing in fresh fruit…especially strawberries.  A few candied nuts, some creamy, tangy goat […]

Get Ready to Run…Mudderella Style!

I am not a runner. Seriously? Zombie Apocalypse happens, I am the one using my brain, not running.  I’m the one who will have a stash of Jolly Ranchers and vodka and strong men to trade (I think my trading power will be pretty up there), and NOT the one on the run. But here […]

Low Carb Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Don’t run off, y’all.  Low Carb does not mean Low Delicious.  This pizza…it’s fantastic.  I wish I could call it No Carb, as it practically is, but I wanted to be honest.  The very few grams of carbs come from the ranch dressing – which are null once spread out across the entire recipe, and […]

Linguine with Prosciutto, Mushrooms, and Peas

I grew up thinking that pasta required one of two things: Tomato sauce or cheese. It’s taken me some time to realize that there are so many more pasta possibilities…be it a creamy white sauce, rose, vodka sauce, mushroom sauce, or something much lighter, such as a vinaigrette. Once I started traveling abroad, I really […]

Buffalo Chicken Soup — Low Carb

I could have called this Low Carb Buffalo Chicken Soup, but, I went with Buffalo Chicken Soup, and added the little disclaimer of it being a Low Carb recipe. Why? Well, I know ME.  And had I been on the search for a great chicken soup recipe once upon a time and was confronted with […]

Strawberry Yogurt Parfaits with Yulu

You may not know this (or maybe you do) – but I have been on a health conscious kick for months now.  That’s a pretty drastic change from the dessert loving, cake baking, bread bread bready bready bread eating food blogger I used to be.  Sure, I still love those things – all of those […]

Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes…Low Carb and a Giveaway!

I love being able to say that these cupcakes are Low Carb, though I know the sugar and chocolate lovers out there will be turned against this recipe already. I hope that’s not the case. Truth is, these cupcakes are so simple, so delicious, and so – YUM – that the fact that they are […]

Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Apples

Oh no, you are thinking…another healthy recipe.  Where has Susan gone? Trust me, I am here.  I still want all.the.things. But someone recently asked me to give one of their recipes a go, and while they all looked promising, I decided to choose – of my own volition – to try the healthiest looking of […]

Low Carb Coconut Chocolate Chip Raisin Cookies

What’s a gal to do if she’s watching her carb intake, her overall diet, her overall lifestyle…and she wants to eat a cookie…and there are no cookies at the store for her to eat? She creates a cookie.  In this case, Coconut Chocolate Chip Raisin Cookies Since beginning my low-carb diet in August, I feel […]
