Some where I have a fabo grain free chocochip cookie recipe using beans...one sec..

http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/recipe?id=10043764

and there it is.  I didn't use coco nibs, and I've made them and use the yellow of the egg in them too (still separate and whip the whites though.)  I've made them 7 or 8 times, and used different beans and different kinds of sugars each time.  They all ways taste good to me, though different beans make them look un appetizing perhaps Grin

You guys are strong ladies! I know it must be hard to stay completely away from grains. They seem to be in everthing these days. It's great that there are a lot of alternatives though, like coconut flour.

I still eat grains but try to be pretty low carb so I'm appreciating all of this recipe sharing Smiley.

sweets turned me on to this book a while back...

It's not entirely grain free but there are a lot of recipes that are. Everything I've made from it has been really yummy.

Ugg, staying away from grains would be so hard!  I'm trying to eat more healthy grains, like whole grains.  I made a chicken and rice dish that I normally make, but instead of the white rice I put in brown rice and I could hardly taste the difference.  So yay for that!  I also made some beer rolls with whole wheat flour instead of regular bread flour.  It was very hardy, almost too much so.  My hubby liked 'em though.

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/delicious-chicken-casserole/

I so don't do this recipe like its told though.  I add in way more rice (at least double), I also add in some steamed broccoli and cheddar cheese, added some cheddar cheese on top and within, and also halved the broth and put in 1/2 c of white wine.  Yay substitutions!  You could also use the reduce-fat soups and sour cream for this too, and I'd doubt it would loose its flavor.  I think I also sprinkled in some garlic and onion powder.

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/beer-rolls/

These rolls are so ridiculously easy if you have a bread machine.  Throw it all into the bread machine to make the dough.  Take it out, roll in a long loaf, cut, shape, rise, butter, and then bake!  This time I made with the whole wheat, which made some very crusty rolls.  I've made the regular ones before and we've loved them for mini sandwiches.  I bet these would be awesome mini-sandwiches, too!  Especially with Missing Willow's Blue Ribbon pickles!  My hubby is still working on the ones I made him.  ^_^

I made the butternut squash ravioli with spinach and basil pesto that is in last month's cooking light. I also roasted up some brussel sprouts and we had Skinny Cow ice cream sammies for dessert Smiley.

The ravioli's were sooo yummy but a little bit laborious for a weeknight meal.

I'm going back on my carb cycling diet. I lost about 50 lbs in 2012, but I got lazy around November/December. No excuse! I just need to jump back into it!

Basically the diet it simple and rewarding for people (like me) who have little-to-no self control. It's a 3 day cycle that goes something like this:

Day 1: Weigh yourself. Write it down. Then, GO WILD! No, really, eat cake all day if you want to. I'm serious! (but you'll probably have a tummy ache :c)
Day 2: Have what you want, but no sweets and limit the amount of carbs (bread/rice) to about 1/2 or less of your total daily categories.
Day 3: HARD MODE! No carbs unless they come from green leafy veggies. No carrots, no beans, no rice, no bread, no pasta... This is my grumpy day Tongue

Then it repeats from day 1 again. It seems strange but it works! I was a lazy crafter and didn't really exercise at all and still lost about 50 lbs. I have Hashimotos (thyroid condition) and PCOS which causes me to be insulin resistant and retain even more weight. I am on medication for them, but before I found this diet I still couldn't do anything more than loose a couple pounds here or there and then gain them back right away >.< But this diet is great! It was developed by a body builder for cutting fat before competitions. He does it a bit more strict than I do, but this way works for me, adn it doesn't make me want to binge! Well, except for on day 1... lol.

I'm sick and just want something sweet and cool to drink...I almost made a pitcher of lemonade from frozen concentrate, but I haven't had hardly any sugar in a good week and a half. I resisted and put in a packet of True Lemon and 2 splendas in my iced water, it's pretty good!

Sometimes when I want a flavored drink, I brew a big pot of some kind of herb tea and make iced tea.  Lemon Zinger and  rooibos are my favo, because  I think they don't need any sweetener.

I love tea! And coffee! I drink water all day long but need to try to remember sometimes to reach for a calorie free drink instead of munching on something! I'm not sure if I've ever had Lemon Zinger, may have to give it a whirl!

I have always been a foodie, apparently.  (As a kid I would try anything once, and I do like veggies more than fruit...)

I always found that kids will eat "cute" food or food that they have made (with your help, of course).  It helps to put a little bit of a new food in front of them.

Ah, what I've learned from babysitting.

I mostly drink a lot of tea, and I've been trying to cut out a lot more "fast food".  Last night, I was pretty much unsuccessful - I ate an entire frozen pepperoni pizza with homemade umami paste on it, and had some grapes as my "greens".

I handcarve stamps, knit and have organic catnip.
