Spiced Mixed Nuts

In my search for good snacks on this ketogenic eating experiment (to replace the crunchy, starchy things I love but my body doesn't), I kept thinking that mixed nuts would be a good alternative. Or a trail-mix type thing, without the typical sugary dried fruit and chocolate chips and M&Ms. However, a store-bought trail mix… Continue reading Spiced Mixed Nuts

Baked Apples

And now it's time for one of the simplest, most delicious ketogenic desserts one can eat. Every baked apple recipe I have found online calls for sugar and/or brown sugar. I don't know why, because unless you're using Granny Smith apples, they are plenty sweet already. Especially if you're not used to eating tons of… Continue reading Baked Apples

The Chrysanthemum and the Sword

by Ruth Benedict My husband insisted I read this book. He read it years ago, and it either created or enhanced (I'm not sure which) his fascination with Japanese culture ~ and rightly so.

Doesn't it just beg to be wondered… Continue reading The Great Good Thing

We had fresh salmon, so whereas the original recipe… Continue reading Keto-Friendly Salmon Burgers

Almond Flour Heaven!

Confession: I'm a carbohydrate-lover. I got my metabolism (and blood sugar issues) from my dad, who has been known to say that he has a "love-love relationship" with French fries. I would rather bake than cook almost any day; I was an expert baker before I ever picked up a frying pan. At age nine,… Continue reading Almond Flour Heaven!

Mister God, This is Anna

by Fynn This book was published in the 1970s and has been rather shrouded in mystery. It is acclaimed on the cover of the sequel as a “worldwide bestseller.” It must have been either a short-lived or a cult-following type of bestseller, because other than the friend who gave it to me (a friend named… Continue reading Mister God, This is Anna

Love Thy Body

Christians who don’t know how to talk to friends who are embracing transgenderism, abortion, hook-up sex, or euthanasia should read this book. Anyone who wants to gain a vision for the truth, goodness, and beauty… Continue reading Love Thy Body
