Raising Awareness for Diabetes – and a KitchenAid Giveaway

Bluekitchenaid

Raise your hand if you knew that today is World Diabetes Day.  No?  How about the fact that November is Diabetes Awareness Month?  To be honest, if I didn’t have diabetes myself, I might not know it either.  And if I were REALLY honest, I might acknowledge that if I didn’t have it myself, I […]

Stocking Your Low Carb Pantry – and Sugar-Free Dried Cranberries

Homemade Dried Cranberries

If there is one thing I’ve learned over two and half years of being low carb, it’s that you need to be prepared.  You are far more likely to slip and get off track if you don’t have a good array of tasty low carb foods around to keep you satisfied.  Let’s face it, we […]

Zucchini Chips with Smoked Paprika

Zucchini chips 3 @dreamaboutfood

See the zucchini in that picture?  The whole one?  That is the single lone zucchini we got out of our garden this year.  At one point, I despaired of getting any zucchini at all, but it looks like our two surviving zucchini plants decided to go for broke in mid-September and they put out several […]

Marinated Stuffed Cherry Peppers

Marinated Stuffed Cherry Peppers @dreamaboutfood

I adore appetizers.  Left to my own devices, I would rather eat appetizers for dinner than have a proper entree.  I just love the fact that you can have a whole lot of different flavours in one meal if you eat little bite-sized bits.  I used to host “appetizer” parties, and could practically  make myself […]

Homemade Cream Cheese

Little Miss Muffett, sat on a tuffet, eating her curds and whey.  Who among us doesn’t know that nursery rhyme off by heart?  I must have said that one over and over as a kid, but like the words of the Canadian Anthem in French, I didn’t exactly know what it meant.  What the heck […]

Chipotle Cheese Crisps – Easy Eats Magazine

Chipotle Cheese Crisps @dreamaboutfood

Quick post to say please check out my latest article on Easy Eats Online Magazine.  This is the third variation on a delicious cheese cracker that I’ve made.  The first was made with a special low carb flour, but contained gluten.  The second was made with almond flour, and was so good, but crumbled really […]

Grilled Tomatoes with Cheese, Prosciutto and Basil

Grilled Tomatoes

There is simply no better way to enjoy summer’s bounty than to dine al fresco. I don’t quite know why, but food eaten out of doors just tastes better. Fresher. More wholesome. Assuming, that is, that you use fresh, wholesome, flavorful ingredients. And with all the amazing fresh foods available in summer, there is simply […]

Garlic Parmesan Wings (Low Carb)

Garlic Parmesan Wings 7

I have already talked about Camp Blogaway and how much I loved the experience. I will most certainly consider going again next year, even though it’s a long trip from here on the East Coast. Not having been to many food blogger conferences, I was amazed at all the sponsorship Patti had put together for […]

Garam Masala Cocktail Nuts (Low Carb and Gluten-Free)

Garam+BMasala

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best ideas.  This is a truism, a fact so self-evident that it hardly needs to be mentioned.  We all know this to be the case.  And yet…and yet…if you are at all like me, this is a truism that is often forgotten, despite being glaringly obvious.  I can all […]

Turkey Taco Endive Boats (Low Carb and Gluten-Free)

Turkey+Taco+Endive+Boats+3

Kids:  there is just no pleasing them.  Or rather, there is just no pleasing all of them at once.  When you have more than one child in your life, you are bound to live in a constant state of semi-frustration, with at least one child unhappy, complaining, whining or just generally making your life difficult […]
