Chicken Bacon Ranch

Hey Guys, So last week I posted a photo on Instagram of Chicken Bacon Ranch stuffed peppers.  It was one of the meals that I had on my no grain days (usually Tuesday and Thursday).  I try to post those meals those that I know or who follow me meal inspiration because when I started…

I scream, you scream, everybody likes ice cream. At least in our household that is totally true. Babydoll and I can spend a good 30 minutes in the freezer section trying to decide on an ice cream selection.

Don’t go disrespecting the yeast

Hey y’all, Today I want to talk to you about the importance of having the proper temperature of water when you are blooming yeast.  Can I tell you that if you have your mouth all set for some form of bomb bread that you take the time and effort to put together, and knead, then…

Don’t Trifle with me
