Let’s Catch UP!

Time. Flies. I never intended on not posting recipes for this long! Life has a funny way of taking over, especially when epilepsy and keto are in the drivers seat.  Here’s what has been happening over the past few months… I got to go to Disneyland on my birthday! I even ran into another keto […]

Cheesecake Yogurt ***MAD***

This is like eating dessert for breakfast! If you like the flavor of a sour cream cheesecake, you will love this yogurt.  It still has a slight “tang” from the yogurt, but the cream cheese flavor still comes through.  I did not calculate the nuts and cinnamon on top, but you can include them if […]

Ben (Updated)

Ben is my keto hero!  He’s been on the diet since November 2011 after receiving a diagnosis of Doose Syndrome earlier that year. I remember one of the first times I took him to the grocery store after starting the diet we had to go down the “chip” aisle to find some macadamia nuts.  He […]

Mya

Mya is my hero. She is the strongest person I know, with the biggest heart and the most will power. She had her first seizure on 10/31/09. At her worst, she was up to 30 seizures per day. After several months with another hospital, we decided to switch to Children’s Memorial (now Lurie Children’s). This […]

Sprinkle Birthday Cake

I wanted to re-create “Funfetti” boxed cake mix… It was always one of my favorite mixes in the cake section;) I figured out the coconut flour sprinkles right away… however… baking a coconut flour based cake proved to be much more difficult.  I experienced every problem possible… too flat, too greasy, too dry, green bottoms […]
