Blue foods. They just don't get enough recognition. That's why it's the perfect time of year to create a fruit pizza with some blueberries, just in time for a red, white and blue themed holiday. I am so excited that I was able to find a keto version of fruit pizza for the 4th of July. I love fruit pizza so much, but it's usually super high in sugar and made with a carby crust.

Yesterday I was reading about this delicious-looking recipe for cauliflower toast and wondering how I might make it work. I often mess up cauli recipes--I just don't ever seem to get all of the water out--so maybe getting cauliflower that's already cut and riced is the answer. It's more expensive, but if the results are that much better it might be worth it.
After working every day since... forever, save for days when I'm sick, I always look forward to planning a day off on Mother's Day where I do whatever I want (I also do this in the fall on my birthday). I often read comic books and eat whatever I want that day, and this year is no exception! I've got macarons on my mind this year so I'm looking for some great suggestions.
As someone who continues to try and eat healthy, I must admit that I get very bored with my salads. It's not even like they're boring in the first place: I chop up and add veggies and cheese, I often toss in some avocado if I have any, I experiment with herbs, spices and dressings, but it still gets awfully boring. So one of the things I try to do is try out new dressings that inspire me.
Do you like making little roll-up sandwiches for lunch or a snack? I've always loved mixing up some dill and cream cheese, spreading it onto a tortilla, adding some chopped cucumber and enjoying it as a cool, quick bite. It's one of my favorite things to cut up and bring to parties, too. But if you want to avoid the tortilla, there are lots of other ways to do it, too.
My cat's name is Noke, which is pronounced no-key, which prompts people, upon hearing it, to think that he is named after potato pasta. No such case: he's actually fully named Princess Mononoke, and called Noke for short. The truth is that I've never eaten gnocchi! I bought a package at the store to make a couple of weeks ago but never got around to it, so I'm here to beg for your best gnocchi recipes.
Some people may love watermelon, but for me, it's all about the cucumbers this season. Cool, crisp and delicious, they keep me hydrated and satiated throughout the day. While I sadly don't have my own garden this year, I have so many friends bringing gifts of cukes lately that I haven't even had to buy any!
Are you a cheese lover? I adore cheese! Cheese snacks are among my favorites, but I don't like the flavor of cheese-like powder. I really prefer the flavor of real cheese, so I tend to make my own cheese chips in very small batches. You can make them easily by grateing a favorite cheese (I love asiago or parmesan!), making small "puddles" of the cheese on parchment paper on a baking sheet, and baking it for about 10 to 15 minutes for a crispy snack. This is expensive, though, and it's not very portable.
Blueberries and lemons are plentiful and gorgeous this time of year. What better way to celebrate that sweet and tart, tangy combo than to enjoy lemon glazed blueberry cake with the people you care about after dinner? It's the perfect backyard dessert to follow a barbecue or to serve alongside a cool glass of lemonade over brunch with friends. It's so fresh and inviting that no one is going to turn it down!
This Hungry Blogger is finally well and ready to cook "real" food again! Excited at this prospect, I checked out a few cookbooks at the library yesterday and one of them is #1 New york Times bestselling author Lisa Leake's new book, 100 Days of Real Food: Fast and Fabulous.
