Continuing on with the low-carb, high protein theme, last night I used this recipe for “Mediterranean Pizza Skillet” as a jumping off point.  However, I don’t like olives, I didn’t have Italian Seasoning, and I didn’t want to serve it with a side of carbs.  I ended up with a very tasty supper, and even my incredibly picky two year ...

Almost two weeks ago now, I had my first weigh-in for a local Biggest Loser competition for moms/women in my area.  I’m not trying to lose 50lbs and I highly doubt that I will actually be in the running by the end of the 6 week challenge (thankfully, it’s based on % of bodyweight lost, not the number of pounds!), ...

Tasty & Easy Dessert: Fried Bananas & Chocolate Sauce

The other day, I picked up a whole bunch of bananas for only $0.15/lb because they were starting to brown.  That night, we had some friends over for drinks in the evening, and I didn’t have any dessert to feed them, so I searched my go-to site, AllRecipes.com, for ‘banana dessert’ and came up with this recipe.  I melted the ...

In keeping with the grain-free diet that we’re trying to keep our little guy on, I’ve tried out a few grain-free recipes.  This past weekend, I put together a cauliflower crust for our pizza using this recipe.  I’ll be honest – it takes a lot longer to put this together than it does to throw regular pizza crust ingredients into ...
