Holiday Cookie Recipes: Low Carb Chocolate Crinkles

These low carb chocolate crinkles are a skinny version of the classic Christmas cookie. They might become one of your favorite cookie recipes!

This time of the year, I’m thankful for memories of family and food that I loved as a kid. For me, comfort food like my mom’s chunky applesauce and cookie recipes like these chocolate crinkles are a way for me to remember loved ones who are no longer in my life. This month, The Recipe Redux challenge is to take a favorite holiday recipe and give it a healthy makeover.
Perhaps unlike you, I grew up in a family that didn’t spend time in the kitchen baking treats. I’m not exactly sure why, but thankfully, my godmother loved to bake. Whenever I visited my godparents, there was usually a fresh batch of biscuits or a warm plate full of cookies or brownies around. Chocolate crinkle cookies were, and still are, one of my favorites, especially around the holidays. There’s something special about the chewy, chocolate loaded goodness that grabs my heart. The powdered sugar on my fingers and lips, falling down onto my clean shirt never bothers me one bit. It just makes the cookies taste that much better!

Holiday Recipes: Nutty Graham Truffles with a Holiday House

Holiday Recipes: Nutty Graham Truffles and a holiday house made from graham crackers and peanut butter. See them on #PBandG #ad

It seems a bit early for the snow to be falling, but reality set in this past weekend, and it looks like Winter has arrived early. To take full advantage of the situation, I decided to put together two holiday recipes for you. Well, technically, the holiday house isn’t a recipe, but you’ll be able to see the steps I took to create it. The important part is the creativity that you’ll use to make your peanut butter and graham cracker house your very own. First, I’m sharing my recipe for nutty graham truffles.

Get Chef Becca's tips for roasting a whole chicken or turkey, and how to make delicious gravy!

Thanksgiving is less than 2 weeks away, you guys, so it’s time to bring out the arsenal of main dish recipes. Because so many people fix poultry as a main dish, I thought I’d give you my tips for roasting a whole chicken or turkey.

Chef Becca's tips for roasting a whole chicken and making delicious gravy- from

Being the family of two that Brian and I are, we rarely roast a whole turkey. It’s just too much food, and besides the mess, we don’t have much room for leftovers in our tiny refrigerator. If we’re in the mood for turkey, I’ll usually just cook up a turkey breast, but let me tell you something… if you have the kitchen tools that OXO was nice enough to send to me, even in a tiny kitchen, you can roast a whole turkey with so much simplicity, it’s incredible!  OH, get this… OXO wants one of you lucky readers to own the same tools they sent to me!  There’s a giveaway form at the bottom of this post. We’ll be randomly picking a winner next week. You can’t win if you don’t play, so if you live in the United States, please enter!
