I was asked recently if I’d put more low carb recipes on the blog. Unfortunately, given my histamine intolerance, some of the foods I relied on to keep me really low carb are off the menu: fish, nuts, pork, bacon, tomatoes, spinach, absolutely no strawberries, in fact most berries are out unless they’re frozen, nut […]

So last night I made hot cocoa for a friend and I while we watched the mini-series of the Shining (which we BOTH like FAR better than the movie–I hated the movie version.

Yesterday I made a wonderful new treat—squash pie. Now, it’s not low carb, but it’s not harsh on the blood sugar (unless you eat the whole pie all at once). I wanted something that I could eat on this low-impact allergy diet I’m still on from that last reaction, and this works.
