Good Morning Loves! These FANTASTIC Strawberry Chocolate Chip Muffins are great way to start the day! All the tastes of a chocolate covered strawberry in muffin form! They pair wonderfully with a cup of tea or coffee. Perfect for breakfast or a mid afternoon snack.


The muffin base is made with Kawaii Treats and Eats Bakery Style Muffin Mix. I added in fresh strawberries that I picked up from the farmer's market (which are prime season right now for us in New York state), ChocZero sugar-free milk chocolate chips, and a bit of OOO Flavors Strawberry Flavoring to enhance the strawberry flavor.


Before baking, I top the muffins with a Strawberry Streusel Topping - and yes, streusel topping is always a must on all of my muffins (blueberry, etc.). The topping for these muffins is made with butter, almond flour, dried unsweetened strawberries, and sweetener. These are a must try!

Heart Shaped Cherry Hand Pies made with a flaky buttery crust and filled with cherry pie filling are sure to wow all pie lovers. When it comes to keto / lowcarb desserts, pie is my favorite. I like cherry, blueberry, lemon, raspberry, etc. What's nice about these hand pies is you can fill them with your favorite filling. Have fun and fill each pie with a different flavor! flavor! An assortment of hand pies would make the ultimate dessert tray for any gathering. These heart shaped hand pies are really simple to make. I make with my favorite gluten-free lowcarb pie crust, cut out heart shapes with a large cookie cutter, and then fill with sugar-free cherry pie filling (or any filling). This sweet pie crust is made with almond flour, coconut flour, butter, cream cheese, and sweetener. The dough can be sticky so I use my Gourmet Easy silicone baking mat and stainless rolling pin to make rolling out the dough easy. Make these delicious hand pies for Memorial Day, Mother's Day, Labor Day, etc. Change things up by using different shaped cookie cutters.

There’s nothing quite as comforting as a giant bowl of soup for dinner on a chilly evening. This soup is simple to make and can be made in under 30 minutes, making a perfect weeknight meal. The base of the soup is made with chicken bone broth. Bone broth is highly nutritious, protein packed, stock used in soups and stews. It also adds depth and flavor to this mushroom soup. Mushroom soups are normally thickened with a roux made with flour, however I've learned to thicken the soup with pureed mushrooms making it gluten-free and lowcarb/keto friendly. Before adding the cream to the soup, you reserve some of the mixture and puree it in a blender or food processor and then return it back to the soup. Then finish of the soup with heavy whipping cream or half and half. It is so luscious and delicious! Serve with a salad and a low carb bread or biscuit. Perfect comfort food!

Directions:

3. Pour in the wine and allow to cook for 2 minutes. Add in the dill, coconut aminos and bone broth. Simmer for 15 minutes.

4. Thicken the soup: remove the soup from the heat, and ladle about one third into either a blender or food processor. Puree the mixture until smooth. Return the pureed mixture back to the soup pot.
