Sweet Potato Souffle Saga, Part II

Souffle #2 After

Alrighty!  We started this journey with some homemade sweet potato puree.   Then we ventured onward to make this sweet potato souffle recipe.  Here are the photos of the first recipe… Yes, that topping tastes as decadent as it looks.  Recall that I swapped out the Splenda brown for some Joseph’s maple flavored maltitol syrup. […]

Devilishly Chocolate Reduced Sugar Bundt Cake

The bulk of the body.  No pun intended.

On Sunday my father came over for a lovely prime rib dinner with my wonderful husband and I. We ate heartily, and then we settled in to switch between the baseball playoffs and the late football game. It was a pleasant evening. I have several recipes from that meal to blog about, but I’m a […]

Sweet Carrot Sauce

Combining eggs, carrots, juice, and a veritable cocktail of sweeteners.

A few weeks ago, I saw a recipe for Carrot Curd on Anatomy of a Dinner Party .  Never heard of it… didn’t really know what the hell a curd was apart from a cheese by-product… but it looked darn good, and I have been dying to make a “lighter” version of it ever since. […]

Strawberry Mascarpone Dip

I challenge you to not lick the bowl.

Awhile back, I ran across a really tasty Mascarpone dip at Whole Foods. I’ve been wanting to take a stab at my own Mascarpone dip ever since, and tonight I finally did. Ingredients 4 oz Neufchatel cheese 4 oz Mascarpone cheese 2 tbsp skim milk 4 tbsp Splenda 6 oz low fat Greek yogurt (2%) […]

A Very Serious Topic

I won’t be blogging a recipe today. Mostly because I got started late on my Slow Cooker Navy Bean Soup, and it won’t be ready until late tonight. But also because there is a very serious topic I feel obligated to talk about. Chocolate… CHOCOLATE… CHOCOLATE !!! As I started cleaning out my kitchen and […]

Pumpkin Surprise

Tigger says dis shiz is da bomb.

I thought twice about blogging this one. I adore this recipe, but a version of it exists on just about every diet forum in existence. However, this is the beauty of it… it’s that easy. Incredibly easy. Give something resembling a bowl to a monkey, and the monkey could make it for you. (Although, it […]

Chocolate Almond Butter Protein Fudge

Today, I bring you another recipe that will hopefully allow you to enjoy things you might otherwise have to miss in life. This time, we’ll cover the topic of fudge. While decadent and delicious, fudge is typically made from lots of sugar and things like heavy cream. Alternatively, people use Marshmallow Fluff for an easier […]

Sweet Pumpkin Protein Muffins

Sweet Pumpkin Protein Muffins

This recipe was inspired by my friend Joni who is experimenting with donut recipes. She bought a cute little donut pan and everything. I don’t have one yet, so I just made sweet muffins out of them. Don’t go into these expecting a Krispy Kreme, but they’re really nice and sweet enough for me. Of […]

Banana Bites

Banana Bites

Whelp… this one was born from a silly mistake. My intention was to make Pumpkin Protein Muffins. It wasn’t until I had a few ingredients already in the mixing bowl that I realized I picked up a can of pumpkin pie filling vs. pure pumpkin puree. I’ve never in my life used canned pumpkin pie […]
