Each month,each member of the SRC is paired up with another member and is assigned to make any recipe from that blogger’s website.  This month, I was assigned to make something from Famished Fish.

Famished Fish is owned and operated by Saundra. She’s a wife and mom who, like many of us, struggles to find recipes that her entire family will love. She has a picky middle child who also suffers with autism, so it can be a challenge for her.
When she makes a dish that her family loves, she shares it on her site.  Kid approved recipes like this one, for the win!

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! ItsYummi.com

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!

I have no idea where the year has gone, but I guess there’s no denying the fact that the holidays are upon us. With Thanksgiving just 3 weeks away, I’m well into my Thanksgiving dinner meal planning, and of course, appetizer and snack recipes are just as important as the main course.

With only Brian and I to serve this year, Thanksgiving dinner will be a pretty quiet event at our house, but it sure wasn’t that way when I was growing up. The polar opposite, actually. With eight mouths to feed, my mom had her kitchen filled with food, laughter, noise, and hungry stomachs!
