Mini Brie and Bacon Tartlets – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Low Carb Brie and Bacon Tarts

My eldest daughter is a master of hyperbole.  She freely peppers her speech with “never” and “always” in an effort to evoke some sort of response in her parents.  “You NEVER let me have my way”.  “You ALWAYS make me do all the clean-up”.  You may have let her have her way only moments ago, […]

Ham and Cheese Rolls – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Ham and Cheese Rolls 2

I will not lie to you; this Ham and Cheese Roll recipe was a disaster from start to finish.  Seriously, just issue after issue that culminated in a squished, crumbly final product, a burnt hand, and a serious amount of frustration on my part.  But after a few hours, I gained a little perspective and […]

Low Carbing Among Friends, Vol. 3

Almond Joy Tart

I am pleased to tell you that the third in our series of low carb cookbooks is available for pre-order now, and will be shipping in early January.  I have 60 low carb, gluten-free recipes in this one. Well, 59 actually, as one decided to go missing on my computer and we actually had so […]

Raisin Rosemary Crisps – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Gluten-Free Raisin Rosemary Crackers

I have an intense love for all things Trader Joe’s.  I distinctly remember my first Trader Joe’s experience, out in Tempe, Arizona when I was a grad student.  After hearing much about this mecca of interesting, gourmet and relatively inexpensive foods, I finally coaxed a friend to take me along on her next Trader Joe’s […]

Sesame-Crusted Chicken Tenders with Spicy Asian Dipping Sauce

Sesame Crusted Chicken Tenders

Sesame Crusted Chicken Recipe can be found on Cara’s Cravings. I trust that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, full of friends, family, laughter and food.  And food.  And more food!  We certainly did.  We had a ball actually.  The first half of the day was a little rough, the kids all excited and worked up […]

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

Homemade Cream Cheese @dreamaboutfood

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 […]
