I posted last night on Facebook that I was making this Warm Winter Lemon Cake (click the words because they are a link; I just don’t know why it doesn’t light up.).  I’ve made this cake before, I’ve just never done a sugar-free cake version.  I know what the finished product is supposed to look like. I used a Pillsbury boxed yellow sugar-free cake and sugar-free Jello lemon pudding.  I followed the directions just like they said and this is what I ended up with.  It’s not bad, it’s just not what is supposed to happen.  The pudding is supposed… View Post

I’ve read the e-mails and I know people want more food stuff on the blog because it’s seriously lacking.  I have to be real, we do a modified food prep thing in our house right now.  Eating in our house has been a little lackluster and some weeks I just noticed I was wasting money on food.  The short answer to the questions is: yes.  Now he’s the long explanation: We still make our weekly trips to grocery store and I do start out with good intentions. It’s day to day with me so there are just some days I… View Post

I’m not really a big fan of Halloween.  I don’t like dressing up and I’m not a huge fan of candy.  I never really enjoyed it as a young child either.  I don’t like to be scared or spooked and I know that’s only one side of the holiday.  It’s just not for me.  I love others enjoy it but it’s really not the thing for me.  I must be hard wired wrong or something, right?  Maybe this will change in the future, but I may be growing a child that might not like it either. Maybe I’m just bitter… View Post

Want to know what I eat in a day? Today is your lucky day because I’m going to share. I should have shared this a while ago because a TON of people would e-mail me asking to me to make videos about what I eat in a day. I will tell you my eating habits haven’t changed much since I’ve been preggers or been on my weight loss journey. This is pretty straight on as before. I may just eat a little bit more on some days than others, AND I might want to eat some pizza little more often.… View Post

I may not have talked about it a lot lately, but I still love oatmeal.  There was a mild obsession with it a while back that has become a full-blown obsession now. I ate oatmeal every day until I got preggers and then for some reason it has to leave my life.  I’m happy to report it’s back in my life…a lot quicker than eggs. I’ve been an oatmeal snob.  I can’t eat other people’s oatmeal unless I have the same ingredients as my special concoction, but this morning I tried something new. Introducing for the first time: peanut butter and… View Post
