I’ve said many times in my posts what we look for when vacationing and looking for a rental. One of the main things we look for is a kitchen. Having a kitchen saves greatly on our expenses which is from cooking our own meals.
However, on vacation, we don’t really want to cook so I stick to super simple meals, mainly crock pot. I’ve got my list of go-to crock pot meals that are keto friendly for my family.

Making your own homemade flavored seasonings is easy. However, finding the perfect balance of flavors is more of an art than a science, because individual tastes vary so widely.
The proportions shared here offer a safe starting point. The whole black peppercorns impart a BOLD flavor to this seasoning, so it’s best to start with a small amount and adjust upwards until you find the level of heat you prefer. Once you do, you can create larger batches of this seasoning and store the remaining amounts in an airtight container for several months.
I have to admit, I am a bath bomb addict. I love how my skin feels and that they do the fizzy thing when you drop them in the tub. Quite simply, one of my favorite things. Several a week. But I hate the expense. $10 or more? That doesn’t fit in my budget. That’s highway robbery! I started looking into making them at home and discovered it is inexpensive. If you’ve never tried a bath bomb, you are seriously missing out on a spa-like experience! But with a wonderful fizz that gives your bath just the right kick.

Desserts for One came about because of my new way of being healthy and my healthy eating. While trying to live a healthier lifestyle and eating better, that does not mean that you cannot indulge here and there. So many think indulging is making a whole cake and eating it. Indulging needs to be done in moderation so that you don’t go through life being deprived of favorites but you aren’t binging either. No matter how you try to justify it in your head, eating a whole cake is binging. I’ve compiled the best of the best in all things dessert, but for one.
The ketogenic diet has been my way of life for a while now. It has allowed me to eat a variety of foods that I enjoy and take the weight off with no exercise on my part. I know I should be exercising but I have a busy life.
