Dot to Trot

My world is expanding as my butt is shrinking!

Dilemma of a Baker

I love baking. Ten years ago I tried making my very first apple pie from scratch. The bottom crust was too soggy and the top crust too chewy. It was a horrible pie, but it didn’t matter. I was hooked.

Over those 10 years, I’ve made delicious breads, pies, cakes, muffins, cookies, pancakes, cupcakes! I love how my kitchen smells while baking bread. And there is nothing like punching out dough to relieve stress. I baked all the time…until I went low carb.

With the exception of baking cookies as Christmas gifts and two pies in December, I’ve been avoiding baking like the plague. I didn’t get to 325 by just looking at my creations.

I had been afraid that I’ll go on a carb bender if I kept up my hobby. I’ve lost nearly 60 pounds and I’m not looking to take a step back.

But the truth is I don’t miss the food. I miss creating it.

Paleo cookbookI think I’ve discovered a way to start baking again. As I was checking low carb cookbooks on Amazon, I came across Piece of Cake Paleo: The Effortless Paleo Baking Bible. Jackpot!

Yes its for folks on Paleo and I’m on Weight Watchers. However, I’m doing 20-25g of carbs a day and my understanding is that Paleo is low carb. Plus, I’ve been curious as it’s all the rage right now.

So starting in April on the 1st Saturday of each month I’m going to bake something low carb. Fingers crossed.

Oh, the baking happens after weigh in.
