Low Carb Basics: Baking with Almond Flour

Almond Flour Baking Tips

I recently had the rather brilliant idea of doing a big low carb baking primer to answer the myriad questions I get on my blog, social media and by email.  I thought it would be so smart to do one big post that answered all of your questions in one go.  Alas, when I posted […]

Holiday Sugar Cookie Bars – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Low Carb Sugar Cookie Bars

One of the advantages of aging is that the older I get, the less I worry about making an ass of myself.  That self-consciousness, that concern over what other people are going to think, seems to diminish with each passing year.  I see it as an advantage because it means I am far more comfortable […]

Pecan Crescents – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Low Carb Pecan Crescent Cookies

This Low Carb Pecan Crescent Recipe is my attempt to recreate my father’s favourite Christmas cookie into something we can all enjoy.  And I have to say, I am pretty darn pleased with these.  They have the same soft and yet crumbly texture of the original, the same pecan flavour coming through, and yet they […]

Cranberry Ginger Butter Cookies – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Low Carb Butter Cookies

And the Christmas Cookie baking continues, this time with Low Carb Butter Cookies, chock full of sugar-free dried cranberries and sugar-free crystallized ginger. Last year around this time, I started seeing all of these references to The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, on Twitter, Facebook and all over the blogs I love to read.  I […]

Low Carb Biscotti Recipe

I am in full-on cookie-baking mode.  I’m all about the low carb Christmas cookie recipes right now and I don’t seem to want to make anything else.  Sorry, kids, I forgot about making dinner again, I was too busy dreaming up Christmas cookie ideas.  I didn’t actually develop this cardamom orange biscotti recipe for the […]

Chocolate Peppermint Sandwich Cookies – Low Carb and Gluten-Free

Low Carb Chocolate Peppermint Sandwich Cookies

I got an early start on my Christmas baking this year, with these low carb Chocolate Peppermint Sandwich Cookies.  My rule in the past has been to wait until at least December 1st, but around these parts, that makes me The Grinch.  In my town, and the surrounding vicinity, the Thanksgiving turkey hasn’t even been […]

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 […]

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 […]

Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies – Gluten-Free Snacks for Kids

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies

Notice anything different about this post?  No?  Look closer.  Look at the photos.  Don’t they look more interesting, more dramatic, less “well-lit, bright and cheery Carolyn type photos”?  Well, maybe it’s not that obvious, but it’s definitely a bit of a departure for me.  See, I had my one-on-one lesson with fellow blogger and photographer […]
