The Snowy Day — Christmas Cookies

The Snowy Day Christmas Cookies -by amber's hands-

Christmas is almost here! Which means it’s time to reveal our 2017 Christmas cookie design! I was so excited when I found out the US Postal Service released The Snowy Day stamps this year, so when it was time to design our cookies, I couldn’t think of a better theme than the classic children’s book. So, without further ado, here is our take on The Snowy Day Christmas cookies. (more…)

My Keto Thanksgiving

A Ketogenic Thanksgiving -by amber's hands-

I firmly believe that holidays are for indulgence. I also know that my body reacts badly to carbs. So what’s a girl to do? Create a low-carb Thanksgiving spread that has all of the indulgence without the excessive carbs, of course!

Let’s talk about alternatives to our favorite Thanksgiving dishes that will keep us moving toward our goals without sacrificing taste, shall we?

Cardinal Christmas Cookies

Cardinal Christmas Cookies

Merry Christmas! How cute are these cardinal Christmas cookies?

I don’t know about you, but I’m way behind on everything and COMPLETELY NOT READY for Christmas just yet. 🙂 So I thought I’d just give you a quick shout out, and share our Christmas cookies this year. We went with a cardinal theme and kept it simple with 3 shapes. And I only have the one picture because I can’t seem to find my head these days! Haha. I hope it gives you some inspiration anyway!

In spite of it all, I want to wish all my readers the happiest of holiday seasons!

Thank you for all your support! 🙂

Technical details: We used two consistencies of icing, 20-second icing and piping icing. We didn’t bother outlining the cookies, just used the 20-second icing to create the single color backgrounds.

Rhubarb Meringue Bars

 I made these bars last year. I photographed them. I edited the photos. I even started a post. But then it took me too long and rhubarb season was over, so I thought I’d sit on this recipe for a long year so I could share it when the time was right.

Now is the time.

I don’t grow rhubarb in our garden (yet.) But my grandma does, and so sometimes we get some from her garden, and sometimes we pick some up at the farmer’s market. But I don’t actually have that many recipes for rhubarb, so I searched through my grandma’s recipes and found this lovely.
