Nutri-grain knock-offs Version 2.0 – STILL LOW CARB!

It’s been a rough couple of weeks, both the Hobbit and The Lady have been suffering with this damn cold that is going around. Cough. HACK. Cough. HACK. Sniffle. SNEEEEEEEZE! Hack. Not fun. With this way of life, I’ve discovered that certain things I used to take for granted need to change. When I would…

Quickie for Saturday – Pumpkin Muffins for breakfast? Yes please:)

Busy day today so this post won’t be as long-winded and rambling as most of mine. You’re welcome :).

So I posted up on the FB group the other day some things I was thinking of trying out. One of them was 5-layer bars, I had never made the ‘real’ ones before, only scarfed down hundreds of them at potlucks, birthday parties, etc. Damn, I like those things. Talk about rich and sweet and…
