The recent influx of flavored fizzy water on the market has inspired something of a competition in my house to find the best one. I wanted to get technical and create a scoring grid to scientifically compare them (may still do), but I just have to share about this. Now, I wasn’t a huge soda drinker before, but I did appreciate (and very rarely still … Continue reading It’s the Fizz
Afternoon tea. Quite possibly, the most perfect collection of savory and sweet finger foods, lovingly paired with hot tea (and now, bubbly!). I took a trip across the pond and all I have to show for it are all these tea towels! I would believe that England is now sadly bereft of tea towels, as I have purchased all of them. In all seriousness, though, … Continue reading All the Tea

Over the years I have become an expert on gluten free … Continue reading Sugar Free Me!

However, the only way this is possible, is from years of memorizing recipes, by reading books, experience and learning from some truly masterful chefs. There are some items, usually baked goods, that require the precision only a recipe can provide. I use conventional cookbooks and recipes as inspiration for my free-from recipes, … Continue reading My Favorite Cookbooks
Chocolate and peanut butter… peanut butter and chocolate… There’s something magical about combining peanut butter and chocolate that nurtures my very soul. Even though my sweet tooth is nothing like it was before I gave up sugar, I still crave sweets from time to time. This cookie isn’t overly sweet, but you could make it that way if you wanted to by adding extra sweetener. … Continue reading Keto Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
