Monday Mmm…Birthday Edition


My birthday “cake”!

#1 I wasn’t thinking ahead–dessert on the brain, not blogging!
#2 I didn’t take this photo, hence it was not staged at all–I just used what I found on the old photo stream.
#3 Pretend it has been cropped after-the-fact, because I don’t know how to do that yet!

Banana: Guatemala
Ice Cream: Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free cookbook. (Same as last week’s recipe).
Chocolate Sauce: Sweet and Natural cookbook.
Whipped Cream: Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free blog.

Psalm 28:7(NIV)
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.
My heart leaps for joy,
and with my song I praise him.

Monday Mmm…First Edition


My breakfast 🙂 It tastes better than it looks, but a little goes a long way!

Recipe from The Thyroid Solution Diet.
(I found the recipe on-line last week and put the book on hold, but may take a trip to Barne’s and Noble to pick it up.)


And the ingredients for tomorrow’s breakfast. Yum!


Dry ice ice cream ala Adam. (BTW, That is steam, not blur.)

The recipe for the ice cream base is from Simply Sugar and Gluten Free, by Amy Green. (I was a recipe tester for the cookbook!) We make the dairy-free version, with coconut milk. It is only 8 carbs for 1/2 cup. Great for John and tasty too!!

The dry ice part of the recipe came from Mad Science. (My husband found it at the library, hoping the children would read it and they did not disappoint. It is written by Theodore Gray, a contributor to Popular Science Magazine.)

James 1:17 (NIV)
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
