I have not posted in forever! Like all year. However, as many hopefully know, we are expecting a baby any day now (tomorrow is our 41 week mark). Therefore, in the beginning of the year my appetite was way down and cooking/baking was not at the forefront of my mind. Nothing sounding good in my first trimester, even though, praise the Lord I hardly got sick. The nausea was enough to deter my taste buds from many foods. Then as May hit, my focus weekly is on the market, plus working full-time. While also getting progressively pregnant and more tired.
Lately, I have felt more of my creativeness come back in as I don’t have to make huge quantities of food all the time. Plus once baby comes, I will be a stay-at-mom, running my own business. So my focus is turning back around to P3 and the vision I have for it. Creating new recipes and playing in the kitchen is at the top of the list. So hopefully later this Fall (after some healing time) and into 2020 you will be seeing a lot more recipes.
I do get asked often my pregnancy cravings, but that answer is hard to pin down. What I want is ever changing. I may really want something for 2 weeks and then I am over it and I never want to have it again. For a while my cravings were salty, lately they’ve been sweet. Recently I watched the British Baking Show (again for like the 4th time which is probably sparked some of my inspiration). Normally I can watch shows and cook all day and never be tempted, but not so much while 9 months pregnant. I used to bake and cook for other people while I’d be on a several day fast. No temptation, no problem. Now I watch a baking show and I want whatever I see on t.v. (or whatever I see scrolling through my Pinterest feed, I made some super amazing cassava flour pancakes a few weeks ago after an afternoon browse). What I’ve wanted most lately: cheesecakes.
Cheesecakes are my favorite. I am the girl who made 9 cheesecakes for our wedding recipe (I am the weird baker who hates cake). I have had A LOT of requests for Keto products this summer at the market. The 24th was my last market before baby comes, but I still had 2 packages of cream cheese left. And some Lily’s chocolate. And some Swerve. Why not make cheesecakes? I pretty much had to with the ingredients in my fridge and pantry. I also had to make them in mini spring pans, because I like miniature food. It’s adorable. And it’s perfect for one or two people. A lot of the time the people I bake for our on their own eating program separate from others, so it’s nice to have an individual item just for them. Plus, in this case, they take less time to bake.
I did use pistachios in this recipe (because that’s what I had in my pantry), but I think hazelnuts or almonds would be my top choice. Continue reading “Triple Chocolate Keto Cheesecake”
When you are a baker, when you show up to events you should bring a baked good. It has taken me a while to realize this, even though it seems so obvious. My brain had a million (or like ten) ideas of things to make for Christmas at my grandparents.
I was really inspired by this Moose Mousse Marzipan cake I saw, with little moose cut-outs on the side. I only allotted myself one morning to bake though and this would take a long time. Plus I’d have to cut it. Plus transportation. It sounded messier and harder to serve as well.
Cookies……it’s Christmas, I should definitely make cookies.
I’ve been seeing so many mushroom cookies are my Pinterest. They’re so foresty and cute. But they’re meringue and that too takes a long time, plus assembly.
My hidden board of blog inspirations has a whole section on cookies. So many options. But I spy this one for a Spiced Roasted Cherry Cookie. Cherries are my favorite food. They’re beautiful, they’re the winner.
I was so happy with how nice looking they turned out. The reviews were that they tasted good as well. I tried a bite, I thought they were pleasant. Not overly sweet, which I like. Plus the cardamom leaves you wondering what that spice is. I ran out of cinnamon, I do think it needs a little cinnamon to balance it out. Overall, tasty, and I liked my Aunt Marti’s suggestion to eat one with a cup of coffee. It is that kind of cookie.

These have by-far been my favorite cookies I have made this December! Or maybe some of my favorite cookies in general, they are that good.
And I have to admit, I was terrified when I was making them. The batter smelled so strongly of peppermint, I was worried it would be over-the-top. In reality they were perfect, refreshing, and the perfect amount of peppermint.
Give them a try!

At the beginning of December I made some lovely cranberry linzer cookies for the Farmer’s Market. I had too much dough, though, and decided I should use it to make something else.
Instantly my mind went to cheesecake. I should use the cookie dough to make a cheesecake dough. And I could stick with the cranberry flavor for the filling.
These were easy to make and delicious. I personally like cranberry, my husband is not a fan, but he said he enjoyed these. He thought he was eating a cherry cheesecake. Light, airy and absolutely refreshing, with a holiday flavor classic.
