This blog is dedicated to the low-carb menu challenge presented by Jimmy Moore. I'm living the Louisiana low carb lifestyle, where low-carb is the new way to go ! I live southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana....have three awesome kids. We are deep down in the heart of sweet Cajun Country, where we kick back and relax, go hunting, fishing, or make groceries! My doctor told me that my blood pressure numbers were getting too high, so I had to loose weight. She challenged me with ten pounds in three months. That was October 7, 2008. I lost 26 pounds !!! In February of 2011, I found that I had gained a few pounds more than I would have liked, weighing in at 170 pounds. I had to get back into the swing of living the low carb life again !! I am loving the 'low-carb' style and wish to contiue it . I exercise three times a week at the gym, and off the 'off' days, I learn to RELAX !! November 2011, finds me in different circumstances -- a new lifestyle, great community of friends and a challenge to keep that 45 pounds that I lost OFF. Feel free to read my blog, browse around, or just sit a spell!!

"The King"




Seemed we just celebrated a Happy Birthday to the Eternal King, and today's birthday is Elvis, "The King of Rock and Roll.' In New Orleans, on Jan. 6th, it's known as King's Day or the 12th night, and we begin to start rolling out the 'king cakes
to introduce to the entire world, that Mardi Gras season is beginning !! Soon parades will be rolling, and bayoubabe will hit the streets and party with the best of them !
Whether the 'kings' of this world are celebrities, athletes, crowned heads, or tycoons, they come and go. Their influence may be immense, and their followers fanatically loyal, but it doesn't last forever. I think one of the many things we do unique down here in New Orleans, is that the kids are out of school for an ENTIRE WEEK during the Mardi Gras Holiday. What a blast !!
Now if someone could only invent a low-carb king cake ?? Perhaps one exists !
For breakfast this morn, I had Jimmie Dean Sausages on wheat bread.
For lunch, I had a grilled chicken salad. It was yummy.

Hey! I made one of those King cakes for my son's class at school once. Cool! When is Mardi Gras?

Yes, this is a sugarfree recipe. I was just wondering about the comment someone left on that page .

"It isn't all that clear..... what is the leavening agent in this recipe. Is it the egg whites?
If so, the recipe should say so. If not, then maybe they forgot to mention baking soda.."

Just what DOES make it rise ?

See, that is the problem I'm having with my low carb bread recipes, I have yet to FIND one, that acutally RISES to the occasion LOL.

Thanks for your effort. (( Still looking for low carb bread recipe for 1.5 lb to 2.0 lb bread machine))
