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!

Hot chocolate, cookies, marshmallows and candies are a magical combination. Step up your hot chocolate game and serve a festive Hot Chocolate Charcuterie Board at your holiday party or family gathering this year. I made this hot chocolate dessert grazing board for our Christmas Girl Friends Weekend in the Poconos. It was loved by all.


It's filled with hot cocoa, tea, cookies, and candies. I offered both lowcarb-friendly items and regular. For the lowcarb/sugarfree options, I made homemade Sugar-Free Hot Cocoa Mix, my Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies, and Gingerbread People. I also added sugar-free candy options: peppermint hard candies, mini Reese cups, York peppermint patties, mini Hershey bars, and sugar-free marshmallows. For the for the "regular" options, I made it easy on myself and purchased hot cocoa packets, premade cookies and candies. Aldi has a great selection of cookies for this. From there, I purchased chocolate covered shortbread, cookie sticks, and flavored teas (candy cane and cinnamon). I also added in mini marshmallows, Hershey kisses, nuggets and candy canes. The candy canes make perfect stirring sticks!
