Happy National Pie Day, y’all. If you didn’t know there was such a thing, well, you’ve been missing out. Pie is one of my favorite desserts, especially when it’s served up with ice cream. So, whether you’re a fan of fruit pies (blueberry cream pie, anyone?) or chocolate is your kryptonite (see #14), you’ll find lots of drool-worthy options here.
Since everyone is sharing their favorite appetizers this week in anticipation of the Super Bowl in a little less than two weeks, I thought I’d share one of our favorites. These turkey and sausage meatballs are wonderful–savory, plump, moist…and cheesy. Yep, there’s lots of cheddar packed into every bite. The best part is that they’re low carb.
I love homemade meatballs. But what I really love is a delicious sauce to go on top. To me, the sauce can take a meatball from good to out-of-this-world amazing. When I make meatballs, they’re savory and a little spicy. So, my marinara sauce needs to be sweet. This sweet marinara sauce fits the bill for any savory meatball or pasta dish you’d want to use it for.
Last week, I wanted to make riced cauliflower, but unfortunately, we didn’t have any of the fresh stuff. We often by frozen bags of cauliflower for steaming in the microwave, so I wondered if I could still make riced cauliflower despite the moisture from the frozen stuff. I did, and it was delicious.
Game Day is just a couple of weeks away. Do you have your menu planned out yet? If you’re anything like me, the thought of preparing a big dinner is sometimes a little overwhelming.

Here are 25 delicious finger foods for your Super Bowl Party that are super easy to prepare. Which ones are you going to try?
As I mentioned before, we’re low carbing to get healthier this year. And I think the secret to success for me will be trying new food combinations to keep things interesting. A couple of days ago, I made stuffed peppers, and we had leftovers. My smart husband said, “Why don’t you use the left over stuffed peppers to make an omelet?” So I did. And let me tell you, it was delicious. But, just in case you don’t have any leftover stuffed peppers (they make for simple low carb meals), here’s how you can make them from scratch.

I love pancakes. I’ve not yet met a version that I didn’t like, but banana pancakes are my absolute favorite. These pancakes are packed with banana flavor, topped with bananas and drizzled with peanut butter sauce. Yum! Here’s how to make them yourself. I recommend you do it immediately. Your tummy will thank you.
Winter makes me crave comfort food, and one of my favorite cold-weather dishes is chili. Normally I make ours with beef, but we tried it with turkey this time since that’s what we had on hand, and I like it even better. If it’s cold and blustery where you live, cook up a pot of this tasty Turkey Corn Chili for dinner tonight!
Mac and cheese is our family’s favorite comfort food. My husband requests it for every holiday dinner, and though I’ve always been able to get a good flavor, the clumpiness drove me crazy. After trying for years to get it right (oven recipes, stove-top recipes and several attempts at a crock pot version), I’ve finally nailed it. Here’s our version of Creamy Crock Pot Mac and Cheese.
