I’ve been having wicked chocolate cake cravings lately. I rarely make cake recipes because I just don’t want a big cake siting around my house (much to my children’s dismay…). Cake sitting around my house is definitely a Miranda from Sex and the City situation for me where it’s too tempting to not touch!
Mug cakes are a great alternative for satisfying your cake cravings in small servings. And this chocolate mug cake is low-carb, gluten-free, and keto-friendly! A total win, right? I’m not following a keto diet, but I do like to experiment with making lower-carb desserts as I try not to eat too much sugar.

February is Heart Health Month and so I have partnered with my friends at Mazola® Corn Oil to create heart healthy recipe to share! And what better recipe to share than this quiche that is packed with heart healthy swaps?! I never used to cook much with corn oil, but I’ve been trying to reduce the amount of saturated fats that we eat. Simple swaps, such as substituting butter with Mazola Corn Oil, is an easy way to make a change. In fact, a clinical study showed Mazola Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil. To learn more about this claim, visit Mazola.com. Needless to say, I’ve been using corn oil a lot more frequently lately!
Say hello to one of my new favorite comfort meals! I made these Thai Curry Chicken Meatballs a few weeks ago and they are so delicious and comforting!
And best of all is that this recipe is supppper simple to make! The meatballs are made with ground chicken, an egg, almond flour (which also makes them gluten-free and low-carb), some garlic, and red curry paste. You can add more or less of the paste depending on how much flavor and spiciness you prefer!
I bake the meatballs in the oven. I use an oven-safe rack to place over the baking sheet (see above). This helps cook the meatballs more evenly from all sides and also helps them get a bit more golden on the outside. You can still bake them without the rack, but I highly recommend having one handy if you can!
Creamy Chicken and Broccoli Stuffed Spaghetti Squash! Now that’s a mouthful…and a seriously delicious and comforting one at that! Ever since I made my Spaghetti Squash Parmesan, I’ve been dreaming of other combos I could make!
Spaghetti squash is honestly my favorite lower-carb substitute for pasta. The texture is similar enough to me and you can do so many different flavors!
As soon as the new year hit, our grocery store broke out the Valentine’s aisle, which of course, also has items we regularly buy so I cannot avoid it. My girls were drawn to the baking section and wanted me to buy two things: Valentine M&Ms and heart sprinkles. Maddie said to me, “Mom, it’s almost Valentine’s Day and that means we have to do nice things for other people like bake!”. I couldn’t say no her sweet face!
I’ve already declared my unending love for all things red velvet, but I’ll happily do it again right now! Red velvet is LIFE! And these cookies are also crazy delicious and the perfect Valentine’s Day treat!
It’s almost Puppy Bowl time! Or, you know, that one game with the brown sphere-like shape? Or that one day where you make and eat ALL of the snacks?! Yeah, that day!
And what is a game day without the nachos? Not a good one, that’s for sure! Nachos are a must for us. I usually end making some sort of chicken nacho, but my husband requested some sort of beef nachos. He loves all things chipotle, so Chipotle Beef Nachos were made!
