4th Anniversary and a Swerve Giveaway!


All Day I Dream About Food turns 4 years old today! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, little bloggity-blog! And Swerve Sweetener is kindly offering you a chance to win fun prizes to celebrate. Plus 10 of my best low carb, gluten-free cake recipes.

4 year giveaway

ย I feel that I should wax poetic, make a big speech about my blog and everything it means to me. How it all started out on a whim, how I never expected anyone to be paying any attention and how amazed I am that I’ve built this baby into a full-time profession. All of which is very true. But more to the point, I am amazed by my readers; their loyalty and love is astonishing and keeps me going, even when times get tough. Every day, I get emails from people telling me that my recipes helped them stick to a healthier, low carb lifestyle. They thought they were destined for boring food and no sweet treats and having to rely on sheer willpower, and anyone who’s ever tried a diet knows how that goes! So I suppose you might say I have made it my life’s mission to turn that idea on its head. It started out with a selfish purpose, since I didn’t want to be stuck with boring food, no sweet treats and relying on sheer willpower to keep diabetes at bay. But it’s turned into so much more than that, a veritable community of people with the same goal: creating healthy and delicious food.

And Swerve Sweetener has generously offered to help me celebrate by donating a prize pack of goodies for you to create lovely low carb goodies at home. 4 of everything, including some of the coveted confectioner’s Swerve that’s been out of stock for a while. YAY! Check it out…

The Big 4 Swerve Giveaway!

Besides a speech, I have the distinct feeling I should have made my blog a cake. Except my blog doesn’t have a mouth. I have a mouth, my husband has a mouth and my kids have mouths and we can do a cake some serious justice in this house. We ain’t afraid of no cake! But it seems kind of cruel to bake a cake for a blog that can’t eat it. However, in case YOU are in the mood to bake a cake for my blog, or you or someone you know has a birthday coming up, here are 10 of my best low carb cake recipes. All of which are perfect for celebrating a birthday, real or virtual! Any excuse to eat cake, right?

    Happy anniversary! All these recipes look great. Think I’ll start with the chocolate hazelnut mousse cake.

  2. Katharine says

    Congrats, Carolyn! All of us out here living with the restrictions of blood sugar are SOOO appreciative of not only your delicious recipes, but also the research you do and knowledge you have about health and which products are good, etc. You are a trustworthy and adorable source for amazing low carb goodies. Thank you! I need to make the pumpkin cake with brown butter icing. How has this escaped me until now!? And drooling over the chocolate cake with sour cream icing. I need to make some practice cakes for my upcoming 40th bday. :)

  3. says

    Happy blog anniversary! I don’t have a website but I love using your recipes as inspiration for cooking/baking. As a Registered Dietitian, I love that you use erythritol in so many recipes – it is my favorite natural sweetener! It is the best alternative in terms of baking characteristics, nutritional profile, and (maybe most importantly) lack of GI upset as with other sugar alcohols due to its absorption mechanism. So, thank you for developing great recipes using this awesome ingredient!

    If I were to win the package, I’d definitely try to make low carb cinnamon rolls, maybe even pumpkin cinnamon rolls!

  4. Jamie Rebecca says

    Happy Anniversary!!!! Seriously chocolate cake and sour cream icing is just screaming my name! You just had to tease with all these pictures!!

    • Chrisi says

      I would love to make the Classic Chocolate Birthday Cake with Chocolate Sour Cream Frosting. Have not used Swerve yet, but I love Penzy’s spices.

  5. Sharon Looper says

    Happy Birthday! You recipes have saved me numerous times!! Thank you for all you do. If I win, I want to make the mint chocolate truffles. They look do rich. Mmmmmmm!!

  6. Tiffany Warnell says

    Happy Anniversary!!!! Your website has been such a blessing to me and my loved ones! I truly appreciate the gift and passion that God has blessed you with! Each recipe of yours I’ve tried has been amazing, and I can’t wait to try the next! And now with this incredible giveaway! Thank you so much for your generosity!

  7. M Plaza says

    The chocolate peanut butter cake is a recipe that even though looks intimidating I really want to make it!

  8. EllenCF says

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! I love you blog and it has been very helpful as I am new to low carb lifestyle. Thank you!!!

  9. Laurie says

    I plan on trying the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Layer Cake that has been calling my name since the day Carolyn posted it. I have a few non low carb friends that are begging to try it as well. :) I love that.

  10. Carolyn says

    Happy birthday dreamy blog. I love the inspiration to cook (and bake!) low-carb, and I’m thankful that you, Carolyn, go to lots of work to test out quirky ingredients and come up with workable recipes. Thanks Swerve for the prizes. I’ve been waiting for confectioners Swerve for months!

  11. Kassi R. says

    Happy Blog Birthday, Carolyn! I’m looking forward to many more of your recipes. If I win, I’m sure I’ll make the gingerbread cheesecake recipe. Who says you can’t have gingerbread in early Spring?!

  12. Maureen B says

    Happy Birthday to your blog! I just found you a couple of months ago and I am so thrilled with your recipes! Every one I try is a winner! Thanks for all you do!

  13. Debbie Gull says

  16. says

    Happy Anniversary! Thank you for all the hard work and effort that goes into all of your wonderful creations, keep ’em coming!! AND, I would LOVE to win these prizes, so awesome!

  17. Linda says

    Congratulations Carolyn – and I sure wish I’d found you four years ago! I’ve been eating this way for a few years now and your recipes are definitely my favourites. There are so many I love, but the Brownie Cheesecake was to die for….. The only complaint I have is that since I live alone, I end up eating the same cake for a few weeks – even though I freeze portions – sigh…

  18. Michele says

    Happy Anniversary! I found your site about 2 months ago and it has changed my low carb journey. I have a sweet tooth and all your recipes are satisifying my cravings without sacrificing the flavor. :) I love Swerve!

  19. Emily says

    I love your blog! We went gluten free with our daughter to try and control her ADHD which is the result of Neurofibromatosis, and your recipes are ones she adores! I would love to try swerve especially that confectioner’s kind!

  20. Jessica says

    Happy anniversary!!!
    Your recipes are AMAZING! I have made your almond cake several times last week and was already planning on making it today. And my 14 yr old daughters birthday is next Mon and has already requested the chocolate peanut butter layer cake. Which is simply to die for!
    Thank you so much for all your hard work!

  21. Alice B. says

    A very Happy 4th Blogiversary to you, Carolyn, and All Day I Dream About You! Thank you for all you do and all you share with us. This place you’ve built is awesome and loved by soooo many! You are a blessing in my life.

    Alice B.

  22. Moira says

    I’m so glad you are here sharing your recipes with the world! Everything I’ve tried has been great. In fact,I will be having some skillet chocolate chip cookie with my coffee this am. So double thanks!

  23. says

    Just made your dark chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting for my birthday, today! Oh, man, and is it ever a happy birthday to me. That frosting, Carolyn. I was eating it with a spoon last night. I will surely be making that recipe again!

  24. Robin Morelock says

    The Internet is a wondrous thing when it comes to information. Your blog is my top spot to go to find new recipes!

  25. Susan says

    Congratulations on four years of using your gifts and talents to help so many, me and mine included! What a difference you have made! Thanks for the recipes, the introduction to a healthier way of baking and – not exaggerating here – the restoration of a beloved hobby and essential part of who I am. Thanks!

    I love Swerve and have a huge list of “goodies to try” but I think the chocolate eclair cake is at the top of the list as it looks decadent and perhaps a bit challenging. Can’t wait to try the custard.

  26. Rebecca E says

    Chocolate Chip Cookies!! I make a big batch, scoop the dough into little balls of yumminess and freeze them. When I’m cooking dinner at night (or reheating leftovers HA) it’s easy to set a couple out to thaw. By the time dinner’s over we have wonderful fresh hot chocolate chip cookies. Congratulations on the anniversary. Thanks for all you share!

  27. Lisa Thomas says

    These flavors are always my go-to so this would be first. Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Layer Cake

  28. Susan says

    My husband said he would make me the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Layer Cake for my birthday this month.

  29. Pam says

    Happy Anniversary of your wonderful blog! Your recipes are amazing…made your coconut chocolate chip cookies again yesterday (and kicking myself because I forgot to bring any to work)! So far I have been liking the Swerve, and plan to make your chocolate cheesecake muffins next!

  30. Pamela says

    Happy Anniversary, Carolyn. I love your blog and read everything you post. I always know if it’s a recipe by Carolyn, I can be sure it will be good. Keep up the good work – many more happy anniversaries to you!

  31. D Stevens says

    Happy Anniversary! I would make the coconut 3 layer cake, love coconut. I think my hubby would enjoy the root beer cupcakes!

  32. Michelle Matos says

    Congratulations on four years! Your website has made it so much easier for my family to adopt and stick to our new low carb lifestyle. Thank you!

  33. Jennifer F. says

    Great giveaway to celebrate! Because of your blog, I ordered Swerve and love it. This blog has been a godsend with needing to eat low carb during my pregnancy but still enjoying the occasional sweet treat. :-)

  34. Catherine says

    Congratulations on your 4th year anniversary. This is an amazing site! I have made quite a few of your recipes and recommended this site to everyone that shows any interest in low carb,gluten free or sugar free recipes. My favorite was the pumpkin spice cake. There I learned what whey powder can do for the structure in gluten free baking. Thank you Carolyn for all the wonderful recipes and knowledge that you share! Here’s to another 4 years and beyond!

  35. says

    Happy anniversary! So happy I discovered this blog a few weeks ago after my gestational diabetes decided to stick around too! My husband’s birthday is next week. Think I’m going to have to try making the dark chocolate peanut butter layer cake!

  36. Wendy says

    Happy anniversary Carolyn. I am a devoted follower. I think I like baking your way better than eating “regular” baked goods. I’ll use swerve to make some yummy chocolate treats … Maybe brownie donuts.

  37. staci mccarthy says

    Me again, forgot to say that I want to make the dark chocolate peanut butter cake, and serve it with your updated recipe of chocolate peanut butter ice cream. Might be overkill or chocolate peanut butter bliss.

  38. Maria Perez-Martinez says

    I’ve never gotten to use Swerve, since I can never seem to find it in my grocery store! Dying to try it out and taste all these awesome recipes :)

  39. Melanie says

    Coconut cream pie, or really any of the recipes where I’ve been wanting that elusive confectioners swerve!!!!!

  40. Robyn Crawford says

    Four already-you age so well! It’s all that clean eating I do believe! I gave up baking for myself and my diabetic mother ages ago and started baking just for the dogs! Sure, the poochies are thrilled with their homemade treats but I missed having a little something too! Thanks to you Carolyn and your amazing website everything’s changed! I can now indulge, guilt free, and have been introduced to so many great ingredients I never would have tried on my own! Here’s to many more birthdays!! Oh, making the Coconut Layer Cake and can’t wait!!

  41. Keri says

    Congrats! And thanks for making this blog. I am having to re-learn everything I know about cooking and eating, so this is very helpful!! I will LOVE to try miking the brownie-cheesecake or peanut butter chocolate cake!

  42. Lei says

    Happy 4th anniversary! I’ve never commented before, but I use your site extensively while on keto. :) I have a sweet tooth, so these recipes keep me sane! I want to make the brownie cheesecake again!

  43. Kelley says

    The pumpkin spice cake looks amazing! I have tried a few other sweetners but have not tried Swerve. I would love the chance to give it a try! Happy Anniversary..love your blog!

  44. Joan says

    Happy Anniversary!! One of my go to sites!! Thank you for all of your fantastic recipes and info! ๐Ÿ˜€

  45. Sara says

    Happy anniversary! Thanks for all the delicious recipes you share! That chocolate peanut butter cake…it’s calling my name!

  46. alana says

    congrats on your blog anniversary! you have so many amazing recipes it’s hard to choose which one to make first, but the chocolate eclair cake is catching my eye at the moment!

  47. Sheri G says

    Happy Blogaversary! Thank you for everything you do. It would be hard to choose what to make first but those root beet float cupcakes are so cute and sound delicious.

  48. Loretta says

    Happy Birthday! You have accomplished so much in a few short years. I have had my eye on the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake and the Vanilla Bean Cupcakes and the Chocolate cake. Yum. Looks so delicious. Wanting maybe to surprise my Dad who is a diabetic with the chocolate peanut butter cake at his birthday in August!! Thanks for all your hard work, creativity and sweetness!!


  49. Kindra says

    I would make some chocolate cupcakes for my twin’s upcoming birthday with the Swerve Giveaway winnings!

  50. Becky Jones says

    Congrats! I’ve loved your blog over the last couple of years. My husband is diabetic, and it’s been great to have inspirational recipes to cook fun food for him!

  51. Judy says

    What WON’T I make?!? I use it for so many things, but probably the first would be one of my avocado “milk” shakes.

    • P.J. Stietz says

      And thanks for introducing me to Swerve! We love it and use it in all our desserts now. I just made your coconut cake and already my hubby is asking for more…having four bags of sweetener will keep us in cake for a while.

  52. Kat says

    I would use the Swerve set to make most of the coconut recipes in a previous blog. Mmm, first the carrot cup cakes.
    Thanks for a great site and all your help.
    Carolyn, where in Arizona can you purchase Swerve?

  53. Taylor says

    Happy 4 years! Your recipes are some of my favorite to use, so thank you. I’d like to make something chocolatey. Something like a cake of yours.

  54. Kim says

    Happy 4 Years!!! I think I’ll make the vanilla cupcakes with my daughter in celebration. Thank you for your wonderful website!

  55. Kate says

    Happy Anniversary! Thanks for all that you do! I think I’d start with chocolate hazelnut mousse – but I want to make them all!!!!

  56. Melinda Bruner says

    Happy anniversary! Keep the great recipes coming! I saw a few cake recipes I’d like to try, and it would be even better with some Swerve to bake them with.

  57. Carol says

    I would make a Texas Sheet cake, a Chocolate Eclair Cake and a Carrot Cake to start. Then I would move on to a Red Velvet Cake, a Spice Cake and the list goes on and on!! I’m gluten-intolerant and diabetic so I was so excited when I started following your Facebook Posts and your Blog!!!!

  58. mindy says

    Chocolate cake with chocolate icing is talking to me! Happy Birthday ADIDAF! Keep bringing yummy low carb, no sugar recipes to my life. The are a true life saver!

  59. Taurean says

    Happy Anniversary!!
    If I win – I will definitely try to make the Chocolate Cake with Peanut butter frosting. I pretty much want to try every baked good recipe on your site!

  60. says

    I would make a delicious cheesecake for my family and one for my coworkers. They always love the food I make for them. I try my best to help everyone eat healthy.

  61. Rica says

    Happy 4th Anniversary! I bet if you would take those 4 years of recipes and put them in a spiral bound binder and call them something like Carolyn’s Dream Low Carb recipes, you would make a killing, and have to do multiple printings! I too have had nothing but success with your recipes, and the sweet recipes are to die for! Even though I am lactose intolerant and can’t make so many any more, I still come to look. I’m trying to get my mom to go low carb b/c I know it would be so much better for her health, but it’s a slow go. I bet you any $$ that if I were to bake up a few sweet things for her to eat every week, she’d stop going to the grocery store and stocking up on her old sweet junk. I’m always recommending your website as one of my favorite to turn the tide on low carb indulgences. Congratulations again! P.S. Can’t wait to try the root beef float cupcakes!

    • Rica says

      For Pete sake! Root beef float cupcakes – my mind is going, but my sense of humor is still intact, and I’m not backing down! I just found out that a prescription medicine that I was taking for my thyroid was giving me all these “dairy intolerant,” symptoms and more! So, I’m weaning myself off it for a while, and will try a few more unconventional methods for getting that critter (my thyroid) back under control, and maybe I won’t have that “dairy intolerance,” any more. One can only hope! On the plus side, both my husband and I adore your Coffee Walnut Dacquoise. Before I went low carb, I had taken some baking classes, and was introduced to a Dacquoise, at a local community college and we made this “standard” cake, but this is so much better! And I loved that it was low carb. I’ve even toyed with the idea of making “personal pan” Dacquoise so they could be transported better.

      But, I would totally welcome a dairy free option on any sweet good, b/c know there are a lot of folks out there who have this affliction. Thank you again Carolyn, for all you do and are.

  62. Joey says

    This is the first gf/sf site that I came across a couple years ago and where I initially learned about Swerve. I remember how excited I was to come across a sugar substitute that doesn’t give you cancer. The site has been a God send for my autistic daughter with gut issues that I have been trying to heal for so long and she is doing so much better after being gf/sf. Best of all, she can have cupcakes and deserts now instead of just watching the other kids eat theirs!!! Thanks for starting this blog Carolyn, we are so grateful!!!

  63. Elizabeth says

    Love your blog!! I am excited to try out a bunch of your recipes, as my husband was just diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I already eat low carb, but now we’re both eating low carb and he’s being extremely diligent about every item that he puts in his mouth. Swerve has been a godsend for us so of course we’d love to win!!!

    • carrie botts says

      OH! And, it’s both mine and my daughter’s birthdays this month so I will be making birthday cakes :)

  64. Elaine says

    I love the recipes you share. I have so much fun making the easiest ones! Thank you for all you do for me.

  65. Michelle says

    I would love to win this, all your recipes look so amazing and I’ve been dying to try something with a frosting for forever!

  66. Susan says

    I’ll be making Chocolate Eclair Cake!! I’m trying to be gluten free and hubby is diabetic – makes life boring!!! Thank you for the opportunity to try Swerve!

  67. Debbie Jennings says

    I’ve been making my way through your line-up…next on my list is the Three Layer Coconut Cake. : )

  68. Jane says

    Happy Anniversary Carolyn! Since being diagnosed with pre-diabetes, your blog has been a life saver in the sweets department — my cabinet is chock full of almond flour and Swerve and I made your red velvet cupcakes yesterday!

  69. Revonda Kay says

    Thank you for you hard work and dedication, I enjoy your blog and Pinterest ideas. We love using Swerve in much of our cooking, this’s week we will try new recipes for cheesecake and sorbet.

  70. Jen says

    Happy Anniversary. Thanks for all of your awesome recipes! I’m a huge vanilla fan so I will be making your Vanilla Bean Coconut Flour Cupcakes.

  71. Emily says

  72. Felicia says

    Happy Anniversary! and if I am fortunate to win, I would make that outrageous Chocolate Eclair cake for my birthday next week! woo hoo and thanks for the giveaway :)

  73. Ruth says

    I will be in chocolate overload after trying all these recipes!!! and I love using swerve!! I love it!!! Smiles, Ruth

  74. April says

    Happy Birthday and thank you for your amazing blog. If I win, I will make some chewy crispy chocolate chip cookies!

  75. Nicole says

    Happy Blog Birthday! You are my favorite go-to food blog and very much appreciate how much easier you have made my transition when forced to make drastic dietary changes! yay!

  76. Amy S says

    Happy Birthday not-so-little-Blog! You are my go-to resource for low-carb sweets that EVERYONE loves. I don’t know what I would do without your hard work and research! Thanks and happy anniversary!

  77. Amy S says

    ooops! Forgot to say that the first thing I will make with my Swerve prize is the Vanilla Bean Coconut Flour Cupcakes. Those are high on the “must try” list.

  78. says

    Happy, happy birthday to you and your wonderful blog! I started mine 2 weeks after you did…gosh, we’ve come a long way!!! xo

  79. ashlyn says

    There’s so many choices! Maybe the pecan pie bars? I’m in the middle of making the hazelnut mousse cake.

  80. dawn bundy says

    Happy Blog-iversary! I cannot wait to try some of your cake recipes. They all look sinfully good :)

  81. Keri B. says

    Congratulations on 4 years, so awesome! I would make so many wonderful things…creme brulee, brownies, & that scrumptious looking dark chocolate peanut butter cake!

  82. Lanita says

    I love your blog and have made several of your recipes. One of my favorites is the Brownie CheeseCake.

  83. Michele H says

    Happy Anniversary!! I love Swerve & I’ve been chomping at the bit to try out an oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe. Yum!!

  84. Aliesha says

    My husband has lost 54 pounds eating LCHF. Every time we want to make something we check your blog first for the best ideas. We love your stuff. Keep it coming.

  85. Kali says

    The real question is, what won’t I make with Swerve?! My favorite thing would probably be cheesecake though!

  86. Hope says

    Happy Blogiversary! So, so, so glad I found you! Not only are your recipes fabulous, but you yourself are an inspiration to me!

  87. Brook says

    All those pictures of cake have my mouth watering! It will be a year in April since I decided to try low-carb to lose weight, and then made the choice to try an adopt a more low-carb lifestyle for my family as well. Your Blog has been a real encouragement, and has really helped me find some great low carb foods that the whole family enjoys.

  88. says

    congrats! I can’t believe you’ve only been at this blog for four years!! If I win? chocolate cake—my due date is tomorrow and i’m sure I’ll be craving something sweet once she arrives!

  89. Tricia says

    Happy Blog Anniversary! I think you are so talented to be able to convert so many recipes to much healthier alternatives. I’m still trying to get hubby on the low carb train, slowly but surely. Thanks for all your hard work!

  90. Heather says

    Congrats! I’d make the eclair cake, or maybe something with chocolate and hazelnuts (my absolute favorite combo!)

  91. Kathy says

    Congratulations on a successful 4 years!! We have all benefitted from your recipes! Thank you so much.

  92. ginny says

    Happy Blogversary! I just found you through the WheatBelly Cookbook by William Davis M.D. . Am looking for recipes that will taste good and follow the wheat free lifestyle. If I won I would like to try making some of your recipes for muffins.

  93. Kathy says

    I forgot to say what I would make with the Swerve! I would make myself one of your guilt-free birthday cakes–what an exciting thought. Happy birthday to me!!

  94. Jen says

    Your blog and I share a birthday! I just found you a few month ago and have enjoyed every recipe I’ve tried, Thanks!

  95. Rebecca says

    Love your site, I check it out daily. Happy Anniversary! Your recipes help me stay on track, I never feel like straying when I have them in the house.

  96. Jackie Adlington says

    I love this product! It has a great taste and I have enjoyed cooking with it! I just made chocolate chip cookies with it and also a double chocolate cheesecake. It was great. Anyway I could do so much with this prize and I look forward to that opportunity!!

  97. Kim says

    Happy blog anniversary! May you have many more years to come… all right, that’s a selfish wish; I want four more years (and beyond) of delicious recipes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  98. Pat Marrison says

    Happy Anniversary! Your recipes ALWAYS turn out great. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe gifts with everyone.

  99. Becki says

    Happy anniversary! Hm, I just made your maple bacon shortbread recipe this weekend and I would definitely use the prize winnings to make it again! Soooo good!

  100. Lorraine says

    Congratulations! It’s fabulous that you’ve been able to make a full-time career out of providing wonderful recipes for those of us who have discovered a healthier way of eating!

    I only came across your blog a couple of months ago but have already made a number of your recipes with great success. The latest was the Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie:


    Even my eldest son, who usually turns up his nose at my low carb offerings, declared it really good. No he’s not a kid, but has been pretty skeptical of how good my food can be.

    We’re having it again tonight, although my husband will go out and get some ice cream to go with it.

    I have a long way to go before I run out of making your goodies, maybe I should have dessert 3 times a day! Just kidding :)

    I just ordered the 22 lb bag of Swerve and can’t wait until it gets here so that I can make more yummy treats.

  101. Mae25 says

    Happy anniversary!!! I just LOVE your blog. It is my go-to for lowcarb recipes and the recipes always come out great!!!! Thank you for your hard work!!!!

  102. Brenda Mc says

    I have so many of your recipes pinned I will have to decide which one will be first! Happy Birthday/Anniversary!!! May have to pin some more of these though!

  103. Stacy says

    Happy Anniversary. Your recipes keep my family loving grain and sugar free living. Your brownie cheesecake is our favorite dessert.

  104. Kathleen says

    Condensed milk, magic cookie bars and dulce de leche. I follow several low carb blogs but honestly, your recipes are the most reliable (and delicious). Before I found you I would make a low carb dessert and be so frustrated. Thanks!

  105. Sarah says

    Happy anniversary! All your recipe’s are amazing! And I’m so glad I discovered Swerve!!! Thank you for all your wonderful recipe’s!

  106. phyllis says

    Wishing you a Happy 4th Anniversary of your blog. Being diabetic and gluten intolerent is no easy thing. Thanks for all your hard work and giving us all the wonderful recipes.

  107. Susan Parker says

    Congrats and thanks for all you do Carolyn!
    I was flown out to Tuscan as a brand new Holistic Wellness Coach teaching the Keto diet to a couple. I made 3 of your great recipes and they were a big hit. Even their sugar addicted brother liked them and the 94 year old Mom loved them too! And they were: Dark Chocolate Walnuts, Pumpkin Scones and Blueberry Cheesecake Coffeecake, with Swerve of course!
    ( Good writing you do as well.)

  108. says

    CONGRATS!!!! So so happy for you. You’ve built a wonderful community and have so much to be proud of. And I do hope you go ahead and have a big slice of cake, on behalf of your blog since it can’t enjoy it. You deserve it!
    First up on my bake list: That chocolate cake with stout caramel sauce. I might share ๐Ÿ˜‰

  109. Giles says

    Congratulations on your blog-o-versary !! I’ve been reading for 2+ years now and your recipes have definitely helped me keep my body healthy during my time as a college student. I still have your recipe for carrot cake pancakes bookmarked, gonna try and work on making those

  110. Pat says

    Oh, my, what a tantalizing giveaway! I’ve been wanting to try Swerve, but haven’t found any locally so I guess it means ordering online — and soon ๐Ÿ˜‰ Cheesecake is calling my name — so that would be my choice — luscious. cheesecake. oh. yes.

  111. Marcia says

    Whoo Hoo! I am so thrilled at having found your site. Oh yeah I would love to get my hands on some of that confections Swerve! Love all your recipes. I would make something chocolatey for my dessert.

  112. says

    Well, since I would love to use Swerve on all of my sweet treat/dessert recipes, I’d have to narrow it down to a mock Snickers candy that I love!

  113. says

    Congrats, Carolyn! I’m one of the many who are SO grateful that you’re here doing what you do every day โ™ฅ
    The eclair cake is screaming for me to make it! Oh, and as of yesterday, the only place I could find Swerve confectioners sugar (that wasn’t in 50 pound bags), was on Amazon for $15. WHAT?! I’ve still never tried it, but I’d love to!

  114. susan says

    congrats!And thanks for all the wonderful recipes! My twins have a birthday in a few days,and this would be lovely.thanks

  115. says

    I would make all of your low carb recipes! Oh I would be living on cloud nine if I actually won this giveaway.

    Congratulations on your 4th anniversary! I cannot believe in just four Yeats how far you’be come;itanazing. Any tips for aspiring bloggers like me?

  116. Kathy says

    A yummy recipe you inspired me to try and adapt from sugar to Swerve for Spicy, Salty, Sweet Mixed Party Nuts. Yum! Happy anniversary!

  117. Mari says

    I want to try the chocolate cake, because it’s chocolate and looks delicious. Happy anniversary and thank you for so many wonderful recipes.

  118. Stacey M. says

    Congrats and Happy Anniversary!! My mom and I love reading your blog and trying the recipes together! You always come up with something delicious :)

  119. Tonnia Williams says

    I am going to have to make the brownie cheesecake. My daughter is a type 1 diabetic and loves cheesecake. She requested a cheesecake for her birthday cake next month and I just found my recipe. THANK YOU.

    • Carolyn says

      It’s a good one! Some people have found that they need to bake the bottom a bit longer than I did. Just make sure it’s not fully cooked but not too wet either. Hope that helps!

  120. Debra says

    Congratulations Carolyn! Wow, look at all the fans you have! Many thanks for all the great ideas and recipes you post!

  121. Lynn says

    Swerve has opened up a whole new world to me in the kitchen, and I want to us it to make one of your cake recipes. Thanks for sharing your journey and your recipes!

  122. Nicole says

    You have the BEST blog! I would love to try Swerve at some point, perhaps to make your Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Layer Cake.

  123. Carol says

    Happy 4th birthday! I would love to try the swerve in your amazing recipes, to see if it makes them even better!

  124. Sharron Timmins says

    Happy Blog day and soon-to-be-birthday! That pumpkin spice cake is calling my name! And, now that I’ve stocked my pantry with several bags of Swerve – bought directly from Swerve Canada as it was just about impossible to find it retail here – I shall be one happy little baker for a while! Lovin’ your blog, Carolyn!!

  125. Jill ladd says

    Carolyn, Happy Anniversary!!!! Congratulations on 4 wonderful years and thank you for everything that you do! xoxoxo

    • says

      Oh and what would I make? One of your yummy cake recipes! I have been waiting for the powdered swerve to be back in stock and have never used it

    • Mandy Fuillerat says

      Whoops – forgot to post what I would make first. Tough call… but your Coconut Raspberry Chocolate Chip Muffins have been on my mind. (Those lonely, neglected berries in the freezer could be put to good use!)

  126. Allie says

    Happy anniversary!! I have been following your blog for a couple of years now and it has helped me stay on track with my low carb lifestyle. Thank you for all you do! I don’t know if I have a favorite recipe, but I love your cinnamon roll biscotti, nanaimo bars, and your lemon creme cake. :-)

  127. Theresa says

    I would make the pumpkin spice cake with browned butter frosting forvdure. I also have a list of your recipes on my to make list :)

  128. Sasha says

    The first thing I’ll make is your chocolate bundt cake with Stout caramel glaze….been dying to try that recipe FOREVER :)

  129. jeanie says

    I would make the chocolate cake with sour cream frosting. Love your recipes, love your blog. Sincere thanks on all your heard work and recipes! You keep us going low carb well!

  130. Donna says

    Happy Blogiversary! Hope there are many more years of yummy inspiration to come! I’ve been thinking (dreaming) about that coconut cake.

  131. Sandy says

    Happy Birthday All Day I Dream About Food
    There are a few of us at work that use your recipe’s all the time to keep on track with our new low carb lifestyle. We all like the blondies so now I can not wait to try the newest recipe posted: Peanut butter chocolate chip blondies. thanks so much for helping me keep on track with some very tasteful recipe’s

  132. Maureen says

    Happy Anniversary Carolyn! I love your recipes and positive outlook on life. You are an inspiration!

  133. downthelanegirl says

    I just discovered your blog last week…and what can I say…WOW….WOW!!!! You have done all the hard work for us and I’m gonna bake….everything!!!!!

  134. Tami says

    Happy Blog Anniversary to YOU…
    Happy Blog Anniversary to YOU…
    Happy Blog Anniversary Dear All Day I Dream About Food…
    What would I make if I won the Swerve giveaway??? EVERYTHING decadent on your blog….I haven’t tried making any desserts yet, so this would be a perfect opportunity for me to experiment!!!!!!

  135. S. Harris says

    Hi! I would make myself a birthday cake (by which I mean cheesecake!) if I won this awesome prize pack. Congrats on the 4 yr. blogiversary!

  136. Ronnie M says

    I can’t even begin to think of what I’d make – everything! My husband doesn’t like stevia and we’re trying to change our eating habits. I know he’ll be happy that we can have some sweetened foods without the stevia taste. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  137. Donna Hardin says

    I am behind a few years…but so happy to finally find you! Thank you for contributing so much JOY in my life by learning to bake in a healthy fashion!! Thanks for your help! Looking forward to 4 more years with YOU!

  138. Nancy Settel says

    well a very Happy Birthday to this blog. It has been amazing for me you are such an inspiration. I would love to win this contest as I am having a horrible time trying to find Swerve Sweetner it would come in so handy about now. Keep the wonderful recipes coming. Nancy

  139. Christiana says

    Happy Anniversary! And wishing you many more – your blog is the best thing ever! An answer to a prayer – sugar-free, low carb and delicious! Yay!

  140. Laurie L says

    Happy 4th Anniversary! You and your recipes saved me during my last pregnancy. I can’t thank you enough. :) I would start with the Chocolate Eclair Cake. Mmmmm!

  141. says

    Wow, BIG congrats on the blogiversary!! I’m so glad I found this blog a few years ago, your recipes are pure genius and inspiration. I’ve loved this blog for years now, and I know without a doubt I will STILL love it in the years to come :)

  142. Dawn Salsbury says

    I am undecided between the Chocolate Eclair cake or the Coconut Layer Cake! I haven’t had the chance to try one of your recipes yet but you get so many rave reviews I can’t wait! Happy Anniversary and Thank you for giving me a blog to drool over and not break my Low Carb WOE!

  143. Gwyn says

    So in the mood to make cake (is it wrong to want it with my coffee??) I’ve never tried Swerve, since I can’t easily find it. I always sub with stevia, but would love to actually make one of these recipes the right way! :)

  144. Susanne V says

    Congratulations Carolyn, you have helped, my hubby and I, keep on the Wheat Belly diet which has dropped my blood pressure from 220/113 to 110/68 and my hubby’s blood sugars to 80’s and 90’s . We tried many of your sweet treats and Swerve has been THE sweetener. No aftertaste and wonderful Carolyn baked goodies. I would make the pumpkin spice cake for myself ( since I don’t like chocolate) and chocolate eclair cake for my hubby( who does).

  145. says

    A thousand, four hundred and sixty birthday wishes for each day of fabulous recipes, information and successes. Keep them coming and here’s to many more days and years ahead. A great big congratulations …..p

  146. Sherie LaPrade says

    What a great prize pack!!! If I win, I’ll definitely be making some low-carb, gluten-free pancakes, and I have a great spice cake recipe that the family loves!

  147. Kara says

    Happy Birthday!! I make your stuff all the time, my husband even follows your blog so he can make updated requests on what he wants for dessert. My next recipe I will be making will be Coconut Layer Cake! I mean it is your birthday…so that means I get cake right?? Never tried swerve, so I hope I win!!

  148. Cheryl LaPrade says

    Happy anniversary!! Those cakes all looks so delicious I’m having a hard time deciding which I want to make – I’ll just have to make them all (though not at the same time, LOL). =)

  149. April M says

    I have just recently found your blog, so I am looking forward to trying many of your recipes. Happy Birthday!

  150. Linda says

    Happy anniversary, Carolyn! I would love to try those root beer float cupcakes! I do miss root beer floats!

    I have a story to share about Swerve. I was recently in a health foods store (one of two stores in our entire state that the Swerve website lists as selling their products) about an hour from my home, and I attempted to redeem a buy-one-get-one-free coupon for Swerve. The store manager was reluctant to accept the coupon because it expired the next day, and he wouldn’t be able to get it to his coupon redemption facility before the expiration date. I was very disappointed, and he proceeded to call the Swerve company and explain his dilemma. They told him to go ahead and take care of his customer (me!) and they would send him some free product to compensate for his inconvenience. Now, that’s a company I can fully support!

  151. Vicki Kron says

    I will be trying out all the desserts that have Lemon in them, Cinnamon in them, Chocolate in them, Peanut Butter in them, Coconut in them…have I left anything out?

    I’ve been trying to stay away from desserts, but not I’m ready to try them all (one at a time).

  152. Renee says

    Happy Anniversary! I just recently found your blog and LOVE it! I haven’t tried Swerve yet and would enjoy the chance to try it out with any of your recipes.

  153. Margi Lowry says

    Happy Birthday to one of my most favoritest blogs on the InnerwebnetAOL! I’m entering, but I make your pecan caramel delicious bars (I can’t remember their given name) alllll the time. I <3 IDIDAF!

  154. Rgaini says

    Happy Birthday Carolyn, Your blog has become my most meaningful visit to the web.
    I was finally able to get Swerve Sweetner in one of the stores around.
    Wishing you many more years in the blogospere

  155. Rgaini says

    I guess I am missing something, somehow my comments do not get posted for some reason. Could you please help. Thanks

  156. Cynthia F. says

    Happy birthday!!! I’ll be sure to eat some cake on your behalf. I think I’ll start with that eclair cake. :)

  157. Vickie says

    Happy Birthday. I am so happy with your recipes and make it easy to make sweets for my diabetic daughter. We have been craving a chocolate cake, so it may be the next item to bake.

  158. Vivian says

    Congratulations on your anniversary! Love your blog and will be making the brownie cheesecake or pumpkin spice cake. Thanks for the giveaway!

  159. says

    Congratulations! your recipes have helped make my eating life more fulfilling…I now have choices, as a diabetic, if I want to include healthy treats that won’t raise my blood sugar. Pricelsss!

  160. Anita says

    Oh how exciting. Your blog is my absolute favorite… I don’t have to experiment with these recipes..if they are here, I know they work and are awesome! Thank you! My birthday is on the 17th..and I keep eying these cakes…

    I’d love to enter…unfortunately the entry seems to not be working.

    • Carolyn says

      That’s lovely to hear. But what happened to the entry? did it give you an error message? Try again and tell me what it says and I will see if I can fix it.

  161. Dita MacDonald says

    I have been following you since almost the beginning. I look forward to your blog everyday and have enjoyed your humor and your wonderful recipes. Please keep up the GREAT work!!!!!

  162. Athena L says

    Happy Birthday! I’m so glad I found your blog. I thought perhaps my days of eating cake were over. I’m a chocoholic as most all of us are. That being said, I would make chocolatey chocolate treats with the Swerve.

  163. Shari says

    Well, happy bloggiversary! I just discovered you about a month ago as I’ve started a ketogenic diet. Your recipes are great and inspiring. And Swerve has been so helpful with being able to do this without feeling like I have to sacrifice all sweets!

  164. Stephanie says

    Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake! I love you, I love Swerve, and I love Penzey’s!! It’s a hat trick of love!

  165. Kori Ireland says

    I think I would start with that yummy Pepperidge Farm make over coconut cake. We used to love that cake. I’ve been craving it lately – but not enough to buy one!

  166. Mary P says

    Happy Anniversary! I just wanted to let you know that you have given me some great recipes for my granddaughter, age 7, who is diabetic. Most recipes are too old for her tastes or that she wouldn’t like. I can always find something here. Thank you so much and I will continue to watch your site.

  167. Jana Anderson says

    I will make the Dark chocolate peanut butter layer cake. I am new to all this and trying to find dishes to satisfy my very skinny diabetic husband who is always hungry! Thanks for your recipes!

  168. Jan says

    Happy birthday to your blog :) I’ve been wanting to try Swerve to make several things from your blog. I’ve tried straight erythritol, and just can’t get used to that cooling effect.

  169. patricia says

    Congratulations ! I love your low carb, low sugar recipes. With a celiac, diabetic in the family they have been a blessing to me.

  170. Gail says

    congratulations, Carolyn! I discovered you a few months ago and WOW! I’ve made several things from the blog, but I especially loved the chocolate tart with caramel and ganache. I think it was the Nantucket tart? Anyway, I took it to work and it only lasted a few minutes. There are a few diabetics here and they actually wanted seconds. One commented that it was great to be able to have a sweet that wouldn’t do him in! Certainly a testament to your inventive ways with sweets. Keep them coming!

  171. amanda says

    Happy birthday and congrats! Love love love your recipes! I make something from here at least once a week or more!

  172. says

    Happy happy birthday to All Day I Dream About Food – you’ve come a long way, baby! My bday is in a few days too and I think I may just have to make myself that scrumptious looking dark chocolate peanut butter layer cake.

  173. Leslie says

    Happy birthday to your blog! Love your recipes. Even I have been successful in making some of your wonderful treats and that’s saying something since I’m totally inept in the kitchen! My fav is the brownie cheesecake but that chocolate eclair cake is calling my name so I’m trying that one next. I haven’t been able to get Swerve confectioners though so it’s had to wait.
    Thank you again for all that you do. Not only do I enjoy your recipes but I love the way you present them. Kudos!

  174. Melanie says

    Happy Birthday to your fantastic blog! I stumbled on it while looking up some low-carb recipes last fall. How glad I am that I did! I had to go back and read all the archived blog posts, and I do mean all! It felt like I had found a friend. You have a wonderful knack of being so real and down-to-earth with your words and the way you write. The pictures of your food are simply mouth-watering. Pardon me while I wipe up the slobbers. Your blog is the best low-carb blog, hands down! Love it!

  175. Melanie says

    Oh, and I would definitely make something chocolate/peanut butter. There are so many options, I’d have to make several!

  176. Becki says

    I would make all your goodies that include Swerve in the ingredients. It’s a little costly for my single mother budget! I would love to win this so I can finally try it.

  177. says

    I plan on making anything that’s posted on the All day I dream about food website because it is all good! And thanks to Carolyn and swerve, my husband and I are finally able to stick with our low carb diet, my husband has lost enough weight that he is off his metformin with blood sugars and a1c within normal ranges, we are able to have birthday cake and holiday desserts with our children and family again. We are forever in your debt! :)

  178. Dyan K says

    The first thing I would make is the chocolate bundt cake. Wow that looks fabulous! Actually, all of the pictures do. Now I’m hungry :)

  179. Larissa W says

    I would make one of everything! I’ve already tried a few recipes on the All day I dream about food website and love them!

  180. Sandra says

    All your dessert recipes look amazing! If there is one thing I cannot do, and that is not having dessert!

  181. Ann C says

    I don’t know what I would do without you! Honestly, your sweet treat recipes grace our dinner table at LEAST once a week. THANK YOU , THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

    ps: I would make the flourless type cake you came up with after your and your husbands getaway weekend!

  182. says

    Wow! What a great giveaway! Happy Blogiversary! ๐Ÿ˜€ I JUST found your blog today – but I have to say, the peanut butter dark chocolate ganache cake you posted today is probably the first thing I’m going to try. Never HEARD of Swerve – but I’m a very-insulin-resistant diabetic, and I’m going to go read all about it. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Carolyn says

      Well, as a fellow diabetes (really more of a pre-diabetic) I can say that Swerve never affects my glucose levels. But each person is different so make sure you test yourself to see how it affects you!

  183. Melanie says

    Happy Blog Anniversary, Carolyn! This blog has been such a huge help to me and to my family. It’s been so great to be able to celebrate special occasions with my family with food we can all enjoy- and it’s been even better to be able to feel like I’m not missing out on the simple pleasures of life because of my dietary needs. I’ve said it before, but thank you for all you do! You’re definitely a star in my book! Oh. . .and my son requested the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Layer Cake for his birthday. It. Was. Amazing!!!

  184. Sandra says

    Happy, happy, happy blogiversary! Love your recipes!! I have a diabetic son who loves your eats…thank you for all your experimentations. I will make brownie cheesecake again!!

  185. tracy a. says

    I will make so many things! Ugh…you convinced me to try swerve awhile ago & I’m waiting for my first order right now. I’m super excited, but CAN’T WAIT.

  186. Sara says

    I’m dying to try your Skillet Chocolate Chip cookie. I may try it tonight, if I have everything on hand. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  187. Irene says

    Congratulations!!! Thank you so much for all you do to help us keep on track with your great recipes!!

  188. Rebecca R. says

    I haven’t used Erythritol, been somewhat a die-hard fan of Xylitol. I’d try making a couple favorite recipes, such as a low-carb chocolate cake and low-carb vanilla ice cream. As far as the kitchen tools… my measuring cups and spoons certainly could use updating.

  189. Julie Snow says

    Happy anniversary! The three layer coconut cake looks delish, but honestly I haven’t tried much low carb baking because I hadn’t bought the Swerve. I would begin by perusing your site for all the yummy desserts we’ve been missing.

  190. Deborah says

    Congratulations and thank you for your great blog. I have wanted to try Swerve….this would be a great win for me!

  191. Jenny says

    Happy blogiversary. I would make my son a birthday cake! He is a sugar lover so I would love to see if he could tell.

  192. Eric says

    Love most of your recipes, but the Hazelnut Mousse Cake was a total hit on Valentine’s Day, even for non-low carbers.

  193. Christin says

    Some cupcakes. Just basic ones. I don’t bake as much as I used to because baking GF isn’t always easy but I miss baking cupcakes.

  194. Brandi says

    Happy Anniversary! I’d use the Swerve for anything baked and sweet! Any of the recipes you shared on this page would be fantastic! YUM!!!!

  195. Emilie says

    oh my gosh! The brownie cheesecake looks PHENOMENAL, so if I was lucky enough to win I’d definitely make that! I am fairly new to the low carb world, and I am so grateful for your blog- your recipes really help me fight my cravings for “regular” food! Happy Blog Birthday!

  196. Gigi says

    Congrats! If I were to win – I would have to make your 3 layer coconut cake – it is calling my name!

  197. Linda Franks says

    I love Swerve! What a great prize that would be, especially with 5 adults who eat this mama’s cooking!

  198. Stacy T. says

    Happy anniversary!!! Love your blog and what a great giveaway!! I would make the chocolate peanut butter cake. It looks amazing!! Can’t wait to try it!!!

  199. Jordan D says

    I love baking. I’ve never used a powdered sugar-free sweetener…this would be awesome to make snowball cookies! I also really want to make your brownie bark! Thanks for the giveaway!

  200. jody says

    I have tried and love lots of your recipes! Thanks for introducing me to Swerve. It’s my go to sweetener.

  201. Kris in Alaska says

    Happy blogaversary! I’d make strawberry cheesecake… from the strawberries I grew last summer (they’re in my freezer)!

  202. Sharon Schoettle says

    If I win I’ll use my prize to make some of your awesome deserts…. Your Dark Chocolate and Peanut butter cake and your 3 layer coconut cake are just a couple of our favorites.

  203. Dana says

    I try to live a low carb lifestyle, but my true motivation for baking your incredible chocolate goodies is for my T1D 6-year-old granddaughter (diagnosed at three-and-a-half). We all win with your tasty treats!

  204. says

    Happy anniversary and thank you for all your fabulous recipes. I’m making that dark chocolate peanut butter cake for my BFF’s birthday. We had your cinnamon roll coffee cake and he was blown away by how amazing it was. Congratulations!

  205. Laura says

    I would make peanut butter fudge brownies! I have been waiting for powdered Swerve to go on sale for weeks! There are so many recipes I want to make, but I need it!

  206. Erin says

    That dark chocolate peanut butter layer cake would be one of the first recipes I would make with this swerve sweetener pack! It looks SO yummy!

  207. jeanette says

    Happy Blog Anniversary! I can’t wait to try the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Layer Cake. Looks so yummy!

  208. Amy says

    I’m so glad you have this blog! I love making all your recipes. I make almost one a day it seems. That chocolate with peanut butter frosting cake was awesome!

  209. Emily says

    Love your recipes and thanks for all the hard work going into them – you have some of the best low carb sweets I can find – would totally love to make Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse Cake

  210. Cathy Lee says

    Happy Anniversary! I am an avid baker and trying very hard to change over to healthy desserts, so I am very excited to try all your recipes, especially the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Layer Cake. I have been looking for a non-grainy powdered sugar so I can’t wait to try Swerve!

  211. Tina says

    I would totally make some coconut oil chocolate with this!! Add in some peanut butter, yum, it tastes JUST like a Reese’s peanut butter cup!

  212. Deb Brandt says

    Thank you thank you thank you! for all you do for those of us behind you on this raod and journey to a healthier self and family!

  213. Jenn M says

    Happy anniversary, and thank you for sharing all of your creativity, hard work and yummy, yummy recipes with us!

    I’ve got my eye on that chocolate hazelnut mousse cake…

  214. Jennifer says

    I don’t know what I will make, am new to the low carb baking, but am inspired daily by your blog!

  215. Penny says

    I’ll try out a new ice cream recipe…and maybe some chocolate chip cookies…and maybe a pound cake!

  216. Jammie says

    I will make all of your wonderful mouth watering desserts!! I have been stalking the swerve website for over a month now for the confectioners. so this would be AWESOME :-)

  217. Maryjane says

    First I want to wish you a Happy Birthday! And what I would do if I won, is bake, bake, bake. I love to bake and have just become gluten free and trying to use natural ingredients for a better health. I have been trying to find Swerve for my baking, but I live in New Jersey and there are not stores close to me that carry it.

  218. Evelyn says

    Thank you Carolyn for all your wonderful recipes! I would love to win this and bake even more of your yummy cookies and desserts!

  219. Lee B says

    In the past, I had given up on the low-carb way of eating because I craved sweets, especially scones and cinnamon rolls. I’m so excited to have learned about your blog, I’m feeling more positive about long term success on keto. So if I won the Swerve pack, I would definitely make the Cinnamon Roll Scones. Or the Almond Flour Cinnamon Rolls. Or maybe the Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake:) Thanks for doing all you do!

  220. Jeanne says

    I love your recipes – being new to gluten free and low carb you make it all so easy! Right now I am into making scones and cinnamon cereal with Swerve. Would love to win!

  221. Norma says

    I love, love, love your blog – my pinterest page is full of your recipes – thank you for sharing!!!! and I can’t wait to try the vanilla bean coconut cupcakes :)

  222. Jaime Anderson says

    Happy Anniversary to the best low carb baker ever (and I really mean that)! You have changed the way I eat and since I can now make sweet treats that are just as tasty if not moreso that sugary ones my husband is now eating low carb as well!

  223. Kathy says

    I hope it’s legal to make my own birthday cake, because that’s what I’m going to do…and the Chocolate Birthday Cake with Sour Cream Frosting fits the bill! Thanks Carolyn and happy anniversary!

  224. Sherrie Lee Nelson says

    Congratulations and Happy 4th Blog Birthday! Thank you for all your great recipes and educational blogs. Not realizing it was your blogiversary, I spent Fri, Sat, & Sun making low carb breakfast recipes for my Father-in-law who recently commented that there wasn’t much he could eat for breakfast and was tired of eating eggs every day (he had actually skipped breakfast that morning when my husband stopped by – not good for a diabetic!). He loved all of them and Monday morning was happy to have so many choices for breakfast. I had worked with your other, usually dessert recipes that I felt comfortable to just dig in and start cooking without caustiously making only one or two things for him to tryfirst. He has loved all of them!

  225. Jessica D says

    This is such a great giveaway! My husband can’t have sugar due to blood sugar issues and winning this would be amazing. I would have to make his favorite, banana bread. I’ve never seen sugar free powered sugar though, so I’ll have to find a good recipe to use that in. I’ve missed cooking recipes using that.

    • Krystal Harte says

      Hey Jessica – I found a way to ‘fake’ powdered sugar, and it works. We don’t have Swerve, so I’m using Truvia Baking Blend. To make powdered sugar, you put some corn starch with the sugar, and put it in a food processor. Chop it until it’s fine and resembles powdered sugar. The ratio is 1 tsp corn starch per 1 cup Baking Blend. You can find this on the Truvia website. Hope this helps – but having powdered Swerve would solve both our problems!

  226. Andrea B. says

    Happy Anniversary! This is perfect because I came to your site craving cupcakes. Thank you for all that you do.

  227. Krystal Harte says

    Happy Anniversary!! Wow, this is crazy how many followers and readers you have! I just stumbled across your blog when my husband searched for low-carb desserts. He sent me three of your recipes and told me to get started! We don’t have Swerve sweetener around here, so I’ve had to use another erythritol sugar substitute. I feel like I’m missing out! By the way, our favorite so far is the Sea Salt Almond Bark – it is amazing, and I’m not a fan of dark chocolate. Sure hope I’m the big winner! Thanks for the opportunity :)

    • Carolyn says

      Thanks, Krystal! Plain erythritol is good, it just isn’t quite as sweet and some people find it has a distinct cooling effect in the mouth. I don’t find that at all with Swerve. Enjoy the recipes!

  228. Jess says

    Happy anniversary! I am so thankful for the creativity and inspiration you bring to the low carb world. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes almost a year ago and found your blog shortly after my diagnosis. It has seriously been life changing for me! Thank you again!

  232. Jenny says

    Happy blog anniversary! I have not had a chance to try any of these recipes because I don’t have any swerve sweetener but if I win I will definitely be making a cake for my husband’s birthday in June. Something chocolate. Thank you for the opportunity :-)

    Happy Anniversary! This blog has become my go to place for low-carb inspiration. I always come here for help when I want to sweeten up this way of eating. Thank you for pointing me towards Swerve Sweetener, too! I love it. I have used it in several of your ice cream recipes, and I can’t wait to try the brownie cheesecake. Thanks for all you do, and here’s hoping many more happy years of blogging and inspiring others! โ™ฅ

    Happy Blog Anniversary! I love your blog and it keeps me honest with my diabetic diet. Thanks for the giveaway too. I have tried your Brownie cheesecake – I literally ate it everyday when I was pregnant, and would love to make it again!

    I would make a chocolate peanut butter cake and I would also make homemade peanut butter chocolate balls!

    I just discovered your website. It’s fantastic! If I get the swerve my first project would that chocolate bundt cake with caramel sauce…. Yum :)

  238. Lauren says

    I absolutely LOVE your blog!!! If I were to win, I would definitely try the coconut layer cake, it looks too good to be true!

    Hi Carolyn, thank you so much for everything that you do. You are truly an amazing and talented person. If I were to win the giveaway I would love to make your classic chocolate birthday cake with coconut sour cream frosting for my type 1 diabetic niece she absolutely loves chocolate! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to your blog!!

    Congratulations on four years! It has been a true blessing to find your blog. You’ve made this low carb journey so much easier, and for that I’m grateful. If I win, I think will start with the brownie cheesecake (again) and follow it with your lemon squares (the ones that have the shortbread crust with cheesecake on top–already made these several times). My goodness, where to begin! :)

    Hello my name is Lashaundra and I’m an addict. I LOVE carbs especially sweets however I changed my entire mindset about food 2 years ago when I lost my triplet daughters. I’m hoping to suppress my PCOS by eating whole foods and low carb and someday have a healthy pregnancy. I was soooo excited when I found your recipes for all the foods I have a love/hate relationship with. They are so simple and practical. Other sites were exhausting just looking at the list of impossible to find ingredients. I have already enjoyed several of your recipes but with swerve sweetener I would definitely make the Classic Chocolate Birthday Cake with Chocolate Sour Cream Frosting!

    I am making your cupcake recipe RIGHT NOW for my little boys’s 10th birthday…. only making it as a layer cake and using Swerve confectioners for the frosting. We had to go off sugar when he was 3 years old… this is his FIRST cake with “real” birthday frosting. ps: a friend loaned me her layer cake molds. They are a special kind of glass spun silicone, so no greasing and just POPS out like magic. If you get a chance Caroline, check out those molds by a company called Demarle. LOVE your site. You are a godsend to helping keep my kids happy and compliant on this diet plan and healthy blood sugar levels.

    My husband would love those Eclairs. We are new to the Low Carb life style and your blog just became a favorite. So glad to find you on the blog’s 4th birthday. Congratulations.
