dealing with stress during the holiday season

A snow blower or otherwise known as a snow thrower is an equipment used to extract snow from a specific area that impedes the area’s purpose. Some examples are sidewalks, driveways, railroad tracks or roadways. The term snow blower can be deceptive to buyers; you might actually think that this machine will blow off air but in reality, it functions by use of an auger, collecting the debris and directing it to the discharge chute which will then discard it to the side. You can watch a video about it here. Or, to make it extra simple, snow will be released to the side.  SnowblowersRead More →

Grilled cheese is the ultimate comfort food. It likely stems back to lunches as a child. I loved them back then because they were one of the items I could help make and who doesn’t love a gooey cheese sandwich? I love them now for some entirely different reasons, though rest assured that taste is still one of the top ones! These keto grilled cheese sandwiches are just as delicious as the ones I had as a child but just as cheap and simple to make! Since I use low carb tortillas these are probably more suited to those following a more dirty style ofRead More →

Keto Raspberry Caramel bars

Caramel has always been one of those flavors I love and going Keto certainly didn’t change that! It did take me quite a while to attempt making a homemade caramel sauce..but now that I’ve tried it a couple of times I really wish I had done so sooner! The homemade caramel I use in these Keto raspberry caramel bars takes a bit of time but it’s even better than the store-bought sugar-laden versions I used to love! Pairing the caramel with raspberries makes it even better. If raspberries aren’t your favorite then I expect strawberries, blueberries or blackberries would be just as delicious!

Cookies are an age-old treat that pretty much everyone loves! That doesn’t change just because you start eating healthier and following a Keto way of eating! In fact, missing cookies and other sweet treats are probably one of the top reasons that people have a hard time sticking with new ways of eating. There is no doubt that Keto can be hard at first, especially if you are following a stricter version of the diet. Having keto-friendly treats on hand, like these keto maple cookies, can make a wonderful difference! These cookies are very simple to make with a delicious fall flavor that everyone isRead More →

keto pumpkin cheesecake

Cheesecake is one of those desserts that are very easy to convert to keto, which is great because my family loves some cheesecake! It seemed only natural that we attempt to make a Keto pumpkin cheesecake for the fall season.

Just use a springform pan and cook it for at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes instead! Slow Cooker Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake this post may containRead More →
