Perfect for busy families for mornings, breakfast, brunch, lunch, or even dinner. Could add bacon, baked ham, or sausage for a little extra oomph, but the vegetarian version is awesome on its own.

I have always eaten a lot of eggs. Starting when I was a little girl, my sister and I would walk to Old Grandma’s house (just down the dirt road a stretch or over the hill and across the field) and eat 2 fried eggs – yolks broken and hard – for breakfast with Grandpa. Later, I ate fried eggs in a restaurant when my dad took my little sister and I for breakfast. Then, when I became a vegetarian in college, I ate a whole lot of eggs as they were a reliable source of protein. When I moved … Read more

We are always on the lookout for good, low carb vegetable dishes because, on my bariatric diet, I eat about 5 ounces of meat with 3 ounces of vegetables for every lunch and dinner. That’s what I eat, day in and day out, and will for the rest of my life. No sugar, and no carbs outside of vegetables and limited fruit. So we need a little variety because plain old steamed veggies get pretty old pretty fast. That’s where this recipe came from. The Parmesan cheese adds some calories to the carrots, but it’s pretty minimal and makes the … Read more

I love cheesecake. Joe would say cheesecake is his favorite dessert. Our favorite cheesecake is served at a diner not far from our home.  It’s amazing. I think we might have a new favorite now. I’ve never before tried to make a cheesecake, and I found the April Daring Bakers Challenge a bit daunting. Jenny from JennyBakes.com proposed that we all make the same cheesecake, but she challenged participants to make their cheesecakes show stoppers. I tried. How’s that fellow to the right? He’s a show stopper, all right. I jest. The cheesecake was a little ugly, but I doctored … Read more

The Best Gluten-Free Pecan Pie Recipe

Before my bariatric surgery, I loved pecan pie. It was my favorite pie ever, and I made a lot of them. And ate them. No holiday went by without a decadent pecan pie. When I went gluten-free, I thought I wouldn’t be able to eat another pecan pie, but then I had a thought. I never loved the crust of the pie anyway, so why not adjust the recipe a bit and make the pie without the crust? I did it, and the pie was a crazy success. As you can see in the photo above, the pie was sturdy enough to … Read more
