Low Carb Cheesecake = 99% Success

99% success because I hate Stevia and should have known better than to add it to the almond meal and butter crust. But other than that, delicious!

Here’s the recipe, if you’d like to try making it yourself!


Apple Crumble

It’s COLD out there today. And not just COLD, but WINDY. Wind chill of 18 tonight. And it only got up to mid 30s today. I didn’t really want to venture out into the elements today, but alas, have to get stuff done. Delivered some hats, went on a yarn run, which also included getting hot cocoa mix, peppermint bark, white chocolate coffee, and whipped topping. Yep, it’s cold. Anyway, before I left, I threw some apples and sundry other ingredients in the crock pot. It smelled amazing when I got back, but I wanted a crunchy topping, so I transferred the concoction to a baking dish, made a crumble topping, baked for half an hour, and voila! Delicious apple crumble for a cold day.

I only have one more hat to make, to be delivered Thursday, and I’ve already started, so I’m going to take a break, be lazy, cuddle my baby dog, and read for a bit. Hopefully I won’t fall asleep.

Sunday Afternoon Baking: Milk Dud Brownies

So, Milk Duds. I LOVE chocolate and caramel, but these are terrible on my teeth. They’re like teeth GLUE. We got a giant bag of Halloween candy, and as usual, the bulk of it was Milk Duds. I figured there HAD to be recipes out there that could be these little guys to use, and I found one! Caramel and chewy brownies? YES, PLEASE. So my mom and I decided to give the recipe a try. We’re both unashamed choco-holics. It runs in the family.


And they turned out AMAZING. Ooey, Gooey, Chewy, and Delicious. Seriously, MAKE THESE. Just look at all that caramel and chocolate. Perfection.
