... or take it from a beehive, it's not natural sweetening. While I am confident that Splenda is safe for adults in the tiny amounts I use, I am not qualified to make any claims on behalf of anyone else. The best thing is to get used to eating without any sweetening or to use fruits. I am not… MORE

I love pizza. Unfortunately it's not on the diet, well the crust isn't anyway. This is my low carb answer to pizza. It's super fast and because I use nitrate free pepperoni and turkey sausage more healthy and lean than regular pizza. My husband and I split this by itself for dinner, but it… MORE

Bland and  watery. Stilll I think there hope. The next iteration of this will be tried with an entire head of roasted garlic, both as a thickener and central flavor. Stay tuned for my next kitchen explosion! MORE

AllRecipes ingredient search gets me this recipe for Middle Eastern Stuffed Zucchini. I am way too impatient to stuff Zucchini and I don't eat rice, so I am seeing another one of my bowl recipes coming on. The essential flavors will be lamb, lemon, garlic and mint. Anyone have a different idea?… MORE

I received a comment about my use of Splenda in cooking, so I thought I would just state my position here. Obviously I think Splenda is okay, or I wouldn't put include it in my recipes or use it myself. I think it's a better health choice than refined sugar or other artificial sweeteners for… MORE

Did I mention I hate chicken? Well I do. Since chicken meat is needed to accomplish my goal of eating lean meat, I am forced to consume it. To make it palatable, even delicious, to me, I use ground chicken---specifically free range, antibiotic-free, vegetarian fed ground DARK meat chicken. Last… MORE

So here's the deal. I'm fat. So fat in fact that when I started my low carb endeavor that the bathroom scale refused to go high enough! That was a just a few month's ago. When I slipped under 330lbs, my scale began to work again. As of this writing I am 299. The sad thing is I lost most of this… MORE

About Me
I am a 51 year old game designer, grandmother and entrepreneur. I have been cooking for family all my life. These days I cook at least twice a day for my husband and I who are both on low carbohydrate diets for life.
My favorite things to cook
Sadly I love to bake... oh well. So instead I specialize in yummy stove top cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was a traditional English cook. 'nuf said. I use Mexican, Asian, Indian and American spice combinations in my own recipes.
My cooking triumphs
I have cooked dinner for 30 and have it come off with aplomb.
My cooking tragedies
I once made a birthday cake for someone when I could not smell things properly. I didn't realize my vegetable oil had gone rancid. Yuck.
