Reducing your intake of carbohydrates can sound a little sad. Afterall we love "the white stuff." You know, potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, our blessed "comfort" foods. But since Terry and I have been living a low-carb lifestyle for the last eight years, I've figured out how to cook many delicious meals without the carbs. This is a delicious, company breakfast dish you can make the night before so you won't have to get up extra early in the morning to fix a meal for your overnight guests. So please enjoy this short cooking video. 

If you've been thinking about losing weight by reducing your carbohydrates, I hope you'll read my book "The Mouth Trap: the butt stops here!" I share how Terry and I slashed our carbohydrates eight years ago and are still enjoying the healthy results. We'll never go back!

Buy The Mouth Trap: the butt stops here!

Here's the recipe and video for the low-carb breakfast casserole.

It's Time to Cozy Up!

If you’re a cozy person, you probably have a cozy home.

 

Now that winter will be coming soon, do you get the urge to cozy up the place? Webster defines cozy as: enjoying warmth and ease, marked by the intimacy of family or a close group. It takes a cozy person to make a cozy home. For every cozy home, you'll find a happy family.

 

When I was growing up, our house was always cozy, but as the holidays came closer, the coziness factor seemed to rise. Do you think it could be genetic? If it is I got my cozy gene from Mom who got hers from Granny.

Do You Have a Cozy Home?

If you’re a cozy person, it probably is.

 

Now that winter will be coming soon, do you get the urge to cozy up the place? Webster defines cozy as: enjoying warmth and ease, marked by the intimacy of family or a close group. It takes a cozy person to make a cozy home. For every cozy home, you'll find a happy family.

 

When I was growing up, our house was always cozy, but as the holidays came closer, the coziness factor seemed to rise. Do you think it could be genetic? If it is I got my cozy gene from Mom who got hers from Granny.

 

Every home that Granny made was cozy.

Three of her homes that I can recall, were only two rooms; two cozy rooms. I remember one winter, Mom, Dad and my baby sister, Peggy, had to live with Granny for more than a week. The Northwest experienced what they call a Silver Thaw. I think I understand what happens when one hits. First of all, the air nearer to the ground is below freezing and the air a little higher up is above freezing. When the precipitation hits the freezing air, it turns to ice. The super fine ice collects on everything, turning the landscape into a sugary, slippery wonderland. 

 

Before the Silver Thaw, it had snowed about six inches. When the ice storm hit, it covered the snow with such a thick layer of ice that we could walk across the snow and not crunch through. The ice collected enough to pull huge trees over. Power lines were powerless to escape the accumulation of the frozen water and electricity was cut off for more than a  week. That’s why we went to Granny’s. Our home was all electric. Granny had a wood stove.
