Key Lime Poundcake

Key lime pie is such an American classic dessert. But those key limes, they are tiny little things. Cute, to be sure, but tiny and with more seeds than conventional limes. So it takes a lot more elbow grease to get enough key lime juice to make anything with. Whatever you make has to be worth the effort.I used almost a whole bag of them to make this delicious low carb pound cake and thankfully, it was worth all that ……[Continue Reading]

Strawberry Shortcake Whoopie Pies

Did you know it’s National Strawberry Month? It makes perfect sense, given that strawberries are coming into season all over the country right about now. Of course, in the southern climes, they’ve been in season for a while. And in the more northern regions, it may be a while yet before they’re ripe for the picking. But on average, May is when those lovely little berries start to really get going. And they seem to call to our collective psyche, ……[Continue Reading]

Mini Carrot Cake

Riddle me this. Why is carrot cake so closely associated with Easter? Is it because of the bunnies? It’s because of the bunnies, isn’t it? But while bunnies eat carrots, I am not sure they eat actually carrot cake. Too much butter and cream and flour (in this case almond flour) for those herbivorous bunnies, I would imagine. And carrots, good fresh carrots, aren’t even in season until mid to late summer. So let’s face it, there is a very ……[Continue Reading]

No Churn Mint Chip Ice Cream

So who really owns their own ice cream maker? Well, I do. In fact, I own two of them. I recently upgraded to a compressor model, the sort that doesn’t require the bowl to be frozen ahead of time. But I found myself reluctant to give up on my heretofore very reliable standard model. So I kept them both. You know, just in the off chance that I am suddenly required to make four or five quarts of ice cream ……[Continue Reading]

No Bake Peanut Butter “Granola” Bars

When you embark upon a low carb and grain-free diet, you think there will be foods that are off limits to you for the rest of your life. You scroll past yummy looking treats on Pinterest or Facebook, assuming that they just aren’t for you. You’re okay with it…most of the time. You’ve committed to your health above all and for that, you can feel virtuous. Yay you! But oh, those days when the cravings hit. Maybe you had a ……[Continue Reading]

Cranberry Cheesecake

Let’s consider the lowly cranberry for a moment, shall we. I say lowly for several reasons. For one, they grow on bushes low to the ground. They also grow really well in low-lying bogs or shallow standing water. They are extremely low in carbohydrate, with about only 12 grams per cup of berries. But unlike most berries, they are extremely tart and without any natural sweetness, so they aren’t many people’s first choice for healthy, low carb snacking. But despite ……[Continue Reading]

Pecan Pie Biscotti

I am a pecan pie fiend. An absolute aficionado, if you will. I’ve loved it since my first bite as a child. All that gooey, caramel-y, rich pecan flavor. Even not very good pecan pie was better than most desserts. I absolutely couldn’t pass it up, especially if it was topped with whipped cream or ice cream. Warm pecan pie straight from the oven? My idea of heaven. Of course, I pass up the stuff all the time now. Having ……[Continue Reading]

Pumpkin Tiramisu

The summer has come and gone, and as always I am a little sad to see it go. But while I love the sunshine and spontaneous fun of summertime, I have a special place in my heart for fall. It may mean getting back to a regular schedule and the daily grind, but it also brings so much beauty. I love the chillier mornings and the bright changing leaves. I love that I can wake up and put on a ……[Continue Reading]

Chocolate Cake with Orange Mascarpone Frosting

Want to hear something crazy? I used to not like cake very much. That might be overstating it a bit. I mean, I would eat cake when it was offered and some of it was very good. But a lot of it wasn’t and I got turned off sponge cake in general. It was often too dry, with frosting that tasted like nothing but sugar. It could look so beautiful and be decorated in all sorts of fancy ways, and ……[Continue Reading]
