Growing up, most of the recipes my mother used that weren't passed down from her mother or grandmother, came straight from The Joy of Cooking. When I moved out and got my first apartment, my mother gave me my own copy and I have used it faithfully ever since. Every time I cook out of that old book, I feel like I am making something straight from her!
This recipe was inspired by The Joy of Cooking's recipe for Basic Cobbler Biscuit Dough. I love finding a recipe that I enjoy and being able to remake it so that it fits my low-carb lifestyle! I cannot tell you the level of excitement I felt when I realized that this worked! I was skeptical, because more often than not, when a recipe is remade, it tastes, well ... low-carb. I didn't want that. I wanted the real thing!
King Cakes! They're Everywhere!!!!! Well, if you're in Louisiana they are. And this post is a bit late in coming along, because (unless you're reading this any time in the future) today is Fat Tuesday. Honestly though, it's taken me the entire Mardi Gras season to come up with something that might actually feed my craving for King Cakes.
Yes, I know, this isn't in the shape of a King Cake, but if you really wanted to, you could bake this in a bundt pan and achieve the desired affect.
As always, I must give credit where it is due. The lovely Carolyn from alldayidreamaboutfood.com is to thank for this one. Her Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake was the inspiration for this recipe and I will be forever grateful! Let's be honest, it might not be Mardi Gras when you're reading this, but it simply doesn't have to be to make these. They're just that delicious!
It’s one of the first treats I discovered when I embarked on my low carb journey. Not long after, I discovered “Fat Bombs.” They are also sometimes called “Refrigerator Candy.” If you haven’t searched the internet for these little morsels of goodness, I highly recommend that you do so now. I will be adding a few of my own over the next few months, but in the meantime, get out there and see what you can find!
Cookies and Milk
Is there anything more comforting? When I was a kid, my mom would always sit us down after school with 3 warm cookies and a glass of milk. This was our snack before starting homework, and I relished every bite of those warm soft cookies.
