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.
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…

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?
