Do you love a good tart? A yummy berry base with a flaky crust is the BEST, especially with a nice tea or even coffee. This lemon-blueberry version with almond cream, or Blueberry Frangipane, is fabulous, especially if you're a low-carb eater like me. One slice has under 7 net carbs (a little over 12 total carbs) and I wish I had more to enjoy today! If you've never enjoyed frangipane, definitely give this one a go because you'll want it again and again.
I have vines everywhere, but unfortunately it's not from veggies I can eat right now, but from the pumpkins that are creeping all over the place! At our annual teen pumpkin chuckin', my kids' friends all throw pumpkins off our deck, resulting in some pretty awesome pumpkins they can chuck again the following year.
Foie gras in a milkshake? That sounds absolutely horrifying to me for multiple reasons, but it's definitely something that some people drink. Strange shakes are all the rage right now, and people seem to think that anything can be made into one. In most cases, I'd agree and say why not, but some of them (like the foie gras) I'm just not okay with!
Whether you have a sweet tooth or you're just looking for a really fun way to cool off, boozy desserts are the way to go. So many of them even include ice cream, and what could be better than that? A summr granita featuring Bailey's sounds completey irrisistable, and I definitely needs these s'mores pudding shots in my life. Liquor.com has seven of these scrumptious recipes you can try out before the summer's through.
Caramel is one of my favorite indulgences, and since keto caramel really isn't great for you like some dark chocolate desserts can be, I don't indulge as often as I'd like. When I saw this recipe for caramel crunch bars I was seriously tempted to make it, especially since some of the ingredients could be swapped for keto ones. When it comes to yummy treats, I often just go for the sweet over the keto and just cut the portion size anyway.
My teen and I are huge fans of madeleines. The kid loves them half-dipped in chocolate but I enjoy them plain, just as they are. Since I avoid sugar most of the time I was super excited to see this low-carb recipe for madeleins at KetoDietBlog. As soon as I get a good pan to make them in, I'm definitely going to try it. This recipe is for a buttery, vanilla-y flavor that I can't wait to try with my London fog!
Orange creamsicle is one of my absolute favorite flavors, and I doubt I'd ever turn one down if offered one. What I love about this particular recipe is that it's naturally-sweetened, sugar-free and also free of many allergens like dairy and eggs. It's also vegan, which is great because we have lots of friends who are vegetarian or who are allergic to different foods, so it's such a great recipe!
It's one thing for big businesses to claim ignorance when it comes to issues that effect us all, but when they simply refuse to act on them we have to come together to demand that they stop.
In the modern world, corn syrup and sugar are added to just about everything, so it's no wonder that so many foods that we don't consider to be desserts are still pretty much desserts. Take candied yams; between the brown sugar and marshmallow, how did this even end up as a side dish instead of a dessert reserved for the end of the meal?
It's Pride Month, the perfect time to celebrate with desserts of every color! My LGBTQ loved ones and I have been loading up on all things rainbow, from socks to crafts we've made, to celebrate and honor our loved ones at an upcoming event, but we haven't really planned a lot of the eats yet. Aside from unicorn poop cookies, we're still deciding on the desserts to serve and that's where you come in!
