I have a few posts that draw attention -- a lot of attention. Thanks to Pinterest I am thinking. One of these posts is one I did in Fall 2010 for Pumpkin Doughnut Muffins. It really is a great recipe. I was already well on my way to making low-carb my lifestyle by then but I had kids still at home and no worries about baking them -- they were quickly eaten and not a temptation to me.

Christmas dinner was wonderful -- and it was followed up by a fantastic low-carb dessert -- Low Carb (sugar and gluten free) BROWNIES and Low Carb Coffee Ice Cream.

and checking it twice. No, Santa isn't coming again. I am making a list of some of the low-carb goodies I've recently seen and am wanting to try. A 4-day weekend with lots of wintery weather will be perfect timing for trying some new recipes and putting some goodies in the freezer.

I try to not be too rigid about Christmas Dinner -- and yet our menu ends up being almost identical each year. This year's change up is that we're having Christmas Dinner on Christmas Eve -- works best that way with everyone's other commitments and work schedules.

Yes, that is the name of the recipe and now I know why. I have been familiar with this recipe for some time -- didn't ever make it until last week -- have made it 3 (yes, that says THREE) times in the last week. It is addictive!!

A couple years ago at Christmas time my friends at Gooseberry Patch asked me to review a new release -- 101 Cupcake, Cookie and Brownie Recipes. One of the recipes I made was Pistachio Thumbprints (click for link to original recipe and review) -- they were an instant family favorite.
Although I was already eating low-carb I indulged -- not proud of that but these little buggers were too much for my will power.

Pancakes and low-carb do not seem to go together. I had seen Maria's recipe a while back but didn't even consider making them. Mostly because I am not much of a pancake fan.

Thanks again to my friend Gwen who again has Faithfulness Farm the blog up and going. I appreciate your hanging in there with me!
Last year a Panera Bread opened in the town I work in. I have eaten at Panera many times in the past (pre-low-carb) and while many were excited to see them come to our area, not so much me. Not that I didn't like them or have nice experiences when I've eaten there in the past BUT with BREAD in their name, they are not so low-carb friendly.

Thank you for all the *heads up* emails and comments. We are having technical difficulties and are working frantically to get things back on track. Thanks for your patience and HUGE thanks to my friend Gwen who's help I couldn't do this without. More Faithfulness Farm and low-carb living posts very soon.

I was recently contacted by the nice folks at Chicken of the Sea and asked to review a new product they have on the marketplace -- NO DRAIN Tuna. Sounded right up my alley -- I LOVE canned tuna BUT hate draining and squeezing it out but even more than that, I hate runny, wet tuna. I decided this was a great time to try a couple recipes for low-carb appetizers for holiday parties featuring tuna.

Transparent here -- this was not the blog post I had planned for this weekend. That one will have to wait until later in the week. This weekend just took off on me and ended up much busier than I had planned. In my *old-ways-days*, that would have most likely meant that at least one meal would have been at a fast food sort of place.
