Raspberry Swirl Pound Cake and a KitchenAid Juicer Review

This low carb Raspberry Swirl Pound Cake is a much, much healthier grain-free copycat of the Starbucks treat. Enjoy with your morning coffee or afternoon tea.

Low Carb Raspberry Swirl Pound CakeIf you pay any attention to food trends, you have probably noticed that juicing is quite a hot thing these days. Particularly during the January “diet season”, when everyone is all about detoxing from the excesses of the holidays. Heretofore, I haven’t paid much attention to this trend, in part because I didn’t have a juicer and in part because juice isn’t often consumed on a low carb diet.

Chocolate-Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

Deliciously soft, low carb peanut butter cookies stuffed with creamy milk chocolate. Your tastebuds will thank you.

Low Carb Chocolate Stuffed Peanut Butter CookiesRemember a while back when I said that I felt no need to stuff one dessert inside another, as is the hot food blogger trend? Yeah, well, I lied. Or rather, I simply changed my mind. And I am not sorry in the least. It’s a woman’s prerogative, after all. Not the lying part, but the changing her mind part. We are creatures of whimsy, saying one day that we would never dream of succumbing to the silly fashions of the day, that we have far more sense and individuality than that. Then the very next day, there we are, donning the ostrich feathers or floppy hats or skinny jeans. Or stuffing one dessert inside another. If you dare to call us on it and remind us that we said we would never, we will just stare at you, sniff haughtily and turn away, incredulous that you would question our tastes and desires.
