Sour Cream Sheet Pan Pound Cake With Lemon Glaze

It may look like cornbread made in a Pyrex dish, but it’s not. It is sour cream pound cake. I do not have a bundt or loaf pan. I had sour cream that I wanted to use before it expired so I looked up a sour cream pound cake recipe. Then I googled if you could make a pound cake in a different pan. I found a sheet pan pound cake recipe. So I combined the two recipes I found. It was delicious. Not too sweet, kind of reminded me of a sweet cornbread recipe I tried a long time ago. I was talking to my mom and sister-in-law about how I wished I had a glaze. My mom asked, “Do you have powdered sugar and lemon juice?” So I googled a recipe for lemon glaze and decided the amount of ingredients I needed based on taste testing. It made the cake even better! It wasn’t too dry before but the glaze made it more moist. This was really easy and delicious. It made for …

Keto Sausage Balls

I am late to the game. I am pretty sure my aunt, my mom, and my sister-in-law have made these. I decided to switch up my daily breakfast, and try this recipe. The recipe is easy and the sausage balls are pretty good. The original recipe said to use a cooking scoop to make the balls but I rolled them in my hands. I also used ground Italian sausage. INGREDIENTS 1 pound sausage, cooked and drained (I used Italian) 4 ounces of cream cheese 1/2 cup almond flour 1/3 cup milled flax seeds 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1 egg, beaten DIRECTIONS Allow cream cheese to soften. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cook the sausage and drain. Set aside to cool. In a mixing bowl, combine cooled sausage and cream cheese until Stir in the almond flour, flax meal, baking powder, shredded cheddar and egg. Grease a baking sheet. Make balls about an 1.5″ in diameter. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes. CLICK HERE FOR PRINTABLE …

Sausage and Shrimp Skillet

Since moving to Texas, my priorities have definitely shifted. Now, I am seeing the consequences (my clothes are tight). I am no longer teaching fitness classes, I sit in front of a computer most of the day, and I am surrounded by really good food. Some weight gain was inevitable but I am trying to get back on track. My aunt and uncle are doing Keto, my mom is always watching her carbohydrates, so I figured I better start making better choices before it gets out of hand. I am walking/running with my dog after work and a quick sun-salutation in the morning. My mom introduced me to a breakfast (Light n Fit Greek Vanilla Yogurt, grain-free granola, and frozen berries) and I quit eating Cheez-Its, chips, protein bars (with lots of carbs), crackers, Whataburger (which we were eating at least once a week), and Dominos (ordered every Sunday). I found this Shrimp and Sausage Paleo Skillet Meal and thought I would give it a try. I did find that I did not need the …
