  • Gluten Free Sweet Potato Muffins

    It’s no secret that sweet potato muffins are one of my favorite foods.  Growing up in the south (Texas),  I’ve had my fair share of it and in many different forms.  While it’s good year-round, during the fall it kinda takes on a new meaning for me.  With the colder weather (and the crockpot or

    All that’s missing is a piping bowl of chili or soup to go with these low carb cheddar bacon muffins.  The star of these muffins is cauliflower.

  • Reduced Calorie Hasselback Potatoes Recipe

    If you’re a fan of Hasselback potatoes like me, then you’ll love this hack!
