This healthy pumpkin bread is made without any grains, sugar or flour! It’s low carb, gluten free and a perfectly healthy yeast free bread full of fall flavors!
Have you ever been excited about meeting a celebrity or someone you’ve seen on TV, only to realize your nerves got the best of you and you acted far from professional and put together, to more… well…. childlike and silly?
That’s what happened when I went to Miami last May and met Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Women. My photo on Instagram is so goofy and I told her I felt like a stalker, YIKES! Insert foot in mouth disease!
This weekend I’m headed to New York City for the Food Network Food & Wine Festival! I was thrilled to be provided tickets from my new potential clients, Anolon cookware. The Grand Tasting on Saturday will include demonstrations from Rachel Ray, Emeril Laggesse, Martha Stewart and many more.
To be completely honest I’m as nervous as anything! I know when I’m nervous I stumble on words, talk too much, appear quite goofy looking in pics and act like a giddy little teenager.
Oh how I wish I could be more composed and sophisticated!
But such is life and I’m going and I will meet Rachel Ray and many more chef’s I’m in awe of.
And if that goofy girl strikes again, heck I’m just going to go with it. Hopefully I will be a little more poised and less giddy, but this is who I am and well…….guess I’m trying to accept this part of me, silly and all.
I’ve got great plans when I return after this weekend provided of course I have the courage to actually talk to Rachel Ray and she invites me on her show!!!
No actually I just hope to let her know I’m a little blogger who’s trying to find a place among others in this crazy blogging world. I hope I have the confidence to share with her what I do and why I do it.
My goal here has always been, foremost to my family and then to all of you, providing a way for everyone to see sugar-free recipes aren’t a jail sentence but rather a way to embrace a healthier way of life without refined sugars.
I hope I show you it’s not only manageable but also enjoyable. 🙂
