Good-bye Fatty Baby

Today I put my Baby to sleep. Sweet dreams BabyDork. You will be missed. You were a weird cat. Not very friendly. Your drool made my skin itchy You were a moody son of a bitch, but I loved you. Bunny is going to miss you. Duncan will look after her. Tho, you only liked her the last few years. I saw you in the pet store and I had to have you. You were only 5 weeks old. You were my birthday gift to myself. You lived a long life. 15 years and 8 months.

LC Cinnamon Donut Holes

Finally got to making some Donut holes. I searched and found a few but not what I was looking for. So this is what I came up with.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sweetener
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat your Pops Maker or preheat the oven to 300c. Mix up all the ingredients. Make 14 balls, place in Pops maker or on a baking sheet. If you’re doing them in the oven, you might want to flatten them a bit. Bake for 15 mins or until golden brown. I rolled them in some cinnamon and splenda.

I think next time I will try it with pumpkin spice.

LC Tilapia Balls

I recently bought a used Babycakes Cupcake Maker and a Pops Maker. Both are like new. A well  spent 9.00.

The last few days I have been on the hunt for Low Carb recipes that I can make in them. Well, I found one that I tried last night and it was very good. Here is the link to the recipe I found –> Clicky here

Ingredients

  • 2 tilapia fillets OR other mild white fish
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • and whatever spices you want.

I baked the fish, let it cool. Then into a bowl pulled apart. Mix in the rest and then make some small balls and into the pops maker. It takes about 8-10 mins of cooking time to get them golden and crispy. Made some coleslaw and just used whatever I could find for dipping sauce, Dijon mustard, BBQ and salsa ranch dressing.

Hubby and I are not big on fish, but these fish balls were tasty.
