This gluten-free, sugar-free, and keto Golden Almond Cake with Fresh Blueberry Orange Compote recipe won a full two thumbs up from my husband. He said it tasted like “real cake.” Now there’s a compliment for you! LOL!
Fruits & Berries
This Chicken, Berry & Avocado Salad is my very favorite. While I don’t always add chicken, I do always make my own vinaigrette. Today I’m sharing how I made my strawberry balsamic vinaigrette. It’s a wonderfully fruity compliment to this tasty, healthy and filling salad.
Here at my house, we’re trying hard to lose weight by sticking to our new keto lifestyle eating plan. If you’re unfamiliar with the keto diet plan, it’s basically avoiding unhealthy carbohydrates and incorporating healthy fats into your daily eating, which is why I developed this recipe for Creamy Dreamy Frozen Strawberry Whipped Keto Pops.
I also double dog dare you to take the Gluten Free Tropical Banana Bread challenge. After your first bite, if you’re not convinced that this is the best banana bread you’ve ever eaten, you can bring it to my house and I’ll take it off your hands and eat it for you! LOL
Mother’s Day should be a day where mom gets treated like a queen. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always happen that way, but in a perfect world, it would.
That said, by making mom something sweet and special from our Mother’s Day Recipe Roundup it will show mom just how much you care without even saying a word, and THAT speaks volumes!
Of all the convenience foods in the market the pop-tube biscuits, crescent dough, in particular, is my favorite. For this recipe of Sweet Streusel Strawberry Crescent Muffins, I used two tubes of crescent dough sheets and then sprinkled them with a mixture of Dixie Crystals granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, and lots of chopped, fresh, strawberries.
The result is a deliciously tempting muffin that’s perfect for any #BrunchWeek celebration, and/or to serve mom for Mother’s Day!
When I know I’m going to indulge in a decadent weekend brunch with all of my favorite foods; I like to start the meal off with a bit of pineapple. I’ve heard that pineapple helps melt away belly fat, but don’t quote me on that, because it’s not really true!
However, since I like to *THINK* it may be true I’ve convinced myself that it’s a great way to kick off #BrunchWeek and that maybe all those other calories to follow won’t actually count. Ha! Ha!
There is something comforting and charmingly and old-fashioned about a crumble or crisp. It’s like a dessert-hug grandma would have made for Sunday dinner when the family was coming over.
I think any grandma would be proud and pleased to place this Berry Fresh Blueberry Peach Crisp on the dinner table in front of the family. And hopefully, someday I’ll be that grandma. *wink*
No Bake Peanut Butter & Chocolate Granola Jumbles also are perfect for gift giving. Think Mother’s Day and Father’s Day in particular.
And don’t forget to get the kids busy in the kitchen with you when you’re making these. Since these Peanut Butter & Chocolate Granola Jumbles are basically a “dump” recipe, the kiddos will have a whole lot of fun dumping and mixing all the ingredients!
I’ve been trying to get more salmon into mine and my husband’s diet. Since salmon is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, and it’s a great source of protein, I’m more than happy to incorporate this fast and easy 4 Ingredient Jammin Salmon recipe into my menu plan on a semi-regular basis.
