Baked Eggplant Parmesan with Zoodles

I think I’m a little obsessed with this picture. Right now Oodles of Zoodles is in the hands of my very trusted and capable brand manager/graphic designer. She showed me a proof recently and when I got it I opened it eagerly, whizzing through the pages (it’s an ebook so I was looking from my phone) to get to THIS recipe …

Salty & Sweet Potato Casserole

In case you’re just joining us, I’ve been mini-sizing some of the recipes from The Bariatric Foodie Holiday Survival Guide.  Next up is a mini version of my Sweet (and Salty) Potato Casserole. So far I’ve mini-sized my Apple Crumble into Apple Crumble Ramekins and I have turned the Thanksgiving Casserole recipe from the book (which is exclusive to the …

Thanksgiving Meatballs w/ Mashed Cauliflower and Craisin Sauce

You see meatballs…I see a “Violet Beauregard” moment. (Thank you Lisa on Facebook for correcting my blatant error – I originally attributed this moment to Veruca Salt. Not sure how I got the name mixed up…) If you ever saw Willy Wonka you know Violet as a little girl who won a tour of the famed factory, only to meet her demise …

No-Sugar Added Ramekin Blueberry Cobblers

I think I’ve mentioned before my kids live with their dad in the summer. This year he lives in Texas. I live in Maryland. So off they went to Texas, the same weekend I flew off to Haiti (sniff…sniff…). What does that have to do with these cobblers? Well. Them being gone means a few things. First, that I have …

No-Sugar Added Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

Spoiler Alert: Nutella is never going to be health food. This is not health food. It will always be a treat. I felt like I should lead with that because there are always new folks coming to this blog and I want you to know that we do, in fact, know the difference between a healthy food and indulgences. We talk about that …

Apple-Cinnamon Protein Muffins

  You know what’s hard? Living in a house with non-ops who have no qualms about eating stuff that would kill me. Now granted, I love to bake so occasionally I’ll bake them a cake or make some biscuits for breakfast but it’s rare (a fact that is much complained about in my house…but when I say moderation, I mean …

#PWYF Moment: Tammy’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Roll Cake

(Before we get to the cake…have you entered this week’s “Bariatric Foodie Season of Giving” drawing? There’s Quest Bars up for grabs, people go enter!!!) Anyhoo…I love when you guys show me what you’re cooking. Doesn’t even have to be from this blog. I just love to see what you’re up to in the kitchen. Incidentally this submission was inspired …

Super Juicy Meatloaf

  So…if you had absolutely no life, an abundant amount of time on your hands and no responsibilities and happened to have the interest in perusing the history of this blog…you would see that ground meat and I have a precarious relationship. Which is funny because I have lots of recipes on this blog using ground meat (like my “Magic Meatballs“). …

Protein Pumpkin Bread

Indulge me a short manifesto. Every year (late-August, to be exact) the same thing happens. I innocently log onto my Facebook feed and see that my friends have started to “pumpkin all the things!” And frankly, it’s all a bit ridiculous to me. Like the other day I saw a pumpkin spice flavored chicken sausage. Like…really? I’m not going to …

Ramekin Peach Pies

Break out your ramekins, kids, it’s time for more fun! Next up: peach pie! When trying to think of something sweet I experienced a phenomenon I call “information overload.” Quite simply, there were too many choices and I couldn’t decide which one to move forward with. If you’ve been keeping up with this blog for a minute, you know I …
