More veggies! We’re on a roll with new veggie side dishes and this Roasted Veggie Medley is a great way to switch it up! I don’t know about you, but every now and then I need a break from my standard crispy bacon brussels sprouts. […]

Summer Squash Fries

Summer Squash Fries

Who says squash is boring? I know, I would totally rather have a big fat basket of real french fries…but these will work to kill that craving. Squash makes for a (surprisingly) pretty tasty snack when you’re thinking about reaching for the fries or chips! […]

Crispy Bacon Brussels Sprouts

Crispy Bacon Brussels Sprouts

I’ve never been a huge fan of brussels sprouts. I was only exposed to them boiled when I was younger and they were always bitter and mushy. In my efforts to expand my veggie repertoire I’ve started eating them again and I think I have […]

Let’s Talk Tea

Let’s Talk Tea

I love tea!

No more diet soda for me, but I’ve been hearing all kinds of great things about all kinds of great teas. In my attempt to kick all artificial sweeteners out of my life, or at the very least, aspartame and sugar alcohols. I’ve had to explore other options in the beverage department. So I’m embracing the world of tea!

Now, I live in Arizona where it’s usually a bit too hot to be drinking tea. At least hot tea, so I thought I would experiment with iced tea. If you can drink herbal tea while it’s hot, why not drink it over ice?

It’s my new favorite beverage and it helps me get my water intake up each day. There are also other amazing health benefits to tea. The stuff is loaded with anti-oxidants and other nutrients. Some varieties even have caffeine for you caffeine addicts! It also pairs exceptionally well with my Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Brownies recipe!

Gluten Free Dairy Free Low-Carb Brownies

Long-time members of the low-carb community know and love the Miracle Brownie recipe from About.com from Laura Dolson. I’ve long loved this recipe as well, even modified this recipe to lay off the flax a bit and go easy on my tummy.

Well, with my recent food allergy issues, I also had to find a way to modify the recipe to be dairy-free.
