Low Carb Salted Caramel Cheesecake Bar Recipe

I take a lot of photos of food. I mean, a LOT of photos of food. It comes with the job, of course, but really, it’s a disproportionate amount of food and not so much of the rest of my life. My kids, my husband, my family and friends. If a volcano were to erupt and Portland was buried Pompeii-style, archaeologists a few hundred years from now would get the wrong impression from my computer. They’d think that all I really cared about was food and that my kids were really just tangential to my life. They also might get the idea that all I ever ate was dessert, but that’s a whole other matter. The reality is that I do actually like to photograph my kids. But kids move too much, whereas food stays still and does what I tell it to do. So food tends to get a little more time in front of the camera.

Low carb grain-free granola bars with cocoa powder, chocolate chips and cherry extract

The end of summer is approaching and if you are like me, you have some seriously mixed feelings about the matter. On the one hand, it’s been a long hot summer and the impending cooler temperatures can only offer some relief. On the other hand, impending cooler temperatures mean no more long, hot summer days. On the one hand, you are sick of all your shorts and summer clothes and eager to throw on jeans and a pair of boots. On the other hand, you will miss wearing the cute summer clothes that you only get to wear a few short months of the year. One the one hand, you are looking forward to getting back to a more regular routine in the fall. On the other hand, you’ll miss the spontaneity of summer, the backyard bbq’s, the getaways and camping trips. And on the one hand, the kids go back to school and you get a little more time to yourself. On the other hand, the kids go back to school and you’ll miss having them around a little more.

A fun low carb treat for the whole family. Creamy sugar-free chocolate pudding in deliciously crisp grain-free chocolate chip cookie cups. So apparently I am a total hypocrite.

The best low carb cake of the summer! Zucchini, blueberries and lemon come together in a heavenly gluten-free, grain-free dessert. The internet's a funny thing and the friendships you make online can be a little deceiving. Some people are not at all like you think they will be when you meet them. They hone an internet persona that is entirely different from who they are in real life, and if and when you do meet in person, it can throw you for a loop. It's not that they mean to deceive … Continue Reading
