Sandwiches are easy and cheap to make, highly customizable so even your pickiest kid is happy and there are perfect options for just about every season! Of course, once we ditched the bread sandwiches became a little harder.

There is a guaranteed satisfaction that com with constructing something out of a piece of wood, metal, or other material.

That is what do-it-yourself or DIY is all about, and some people wouldn’t have things any other way.Read More →

keto raspberry balsamic beef

I’m always trying to find new keto dinner options for the family and with Valentine’s day coming up I was racking my brain for something extra special!

We served our beef over cauliflower rice with a side of asparagus but I expect that any vegetable sides would be delicious. I also made a Keto Creme Brulee for dessert! Yum!
