The Changeover

I love to cook.  I always have, to be honest.  When I was a teenager, I started cooking for my mom because she worked long hours.  I wasn't exactly a great cook back then, but I was learning.  When I moved in with Chad, I continued cooking, and as I got better, I started to develop my own recipes.  It was very exciting!

Now that I'm low carb, I've pretty much given up hope for my old recipes.  Which is a shame, because I have a whole book full of them.  But a couple of weeks ago, I decided I'd buy myself a pretty new recipe holder and start the long (but fun) process of converting my old carby recipes into delicious new low-carb recipes.

In with the new, out with the old.
I'm going to make it a point to try to convert one recipe a week, at least.  So hopefully soon, you'll see some new recipes from me!


  1. Great idea! I've changed over most things I used to make. I was never much of a cook but now, if I don't cook - we don't eat!! We don't buy any take away food so I may as well cook food we enjoy.

    I'm not an OK cook and enjoy my meals at home. I put all my recipes on an online cookbook so that no matter where I am, I can access my recipes.

  2. Oh and I love the new look of your blog!! Very pretty.

    1. I've been meaning to comment on that too--love what you've done with the place ^.^

    2. Thanks, guys! Actually, Lynda, you inspired me to change up my look :) Your new blog look is so pretty and feminine!

  3. That's a GREAT idea, Julie! Be sure to share as you progress with the recipe transformations! :)
