Ok, let’s be honest, I live in small town Alberta, Canada and spring break is not all beaches and bikinis here. But it seems after Christmas, New Years and Valentine’s Day, I may have strayed a little off my low carb path! So glad I have Emulin for when that happens, at least I have managed to keep . . .
One of the best parts of winter is the wonderful comfort food. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer and BBQs and roasting foods over and open fire. But winter just seems like a great time for rich, filling comfort foods and what better way to get those amazing meals then in the slow cooker. Toss . . .
With holidays behind us and the longest month of the year finally coming to an end, I find myself craving some soul warming comfort foods. I grew up in a home where my mom was home with us and we were raised on home grown, home cooked food. Although I try to be that same mom for my kids my thumb is . . .

For me holidays seem to be the most difficult time to stick to a low carb, low sugar diet. All the candies and sweets floating around. Especially during Valentine’s Day, everyone is out there declaring their undying love one sweet piece of candy at a time. Romantic dinners just don’t seem complete . . .

Around here we require lots of good, filling food at supper so before we went low carb as a family spaghetti was a frequent flyer in my kitchen.
