The Dreaded "Low Carb" Diet

I have been taking a "blog break" for.... quite some time now, but I am excited to share some new recipes with all of you.  My hubby has decided to go "low carb".  That might as well say "low happiness" in my head.  I love every form of carb.  All of them.  I really want to support my hubby in his quest for health, so I decided to give it a try.  So far... for him: 26 lbs down. for me: 9 lbs down.  Crazy! I always knew I had a carb problem, but I had no idea how bad it was until I went without.  Guess what?  It's not that hard to give them up.  But, it would be infinitely harder if we weren't doing this together.  This is a lifestyle that I think we will both maintain for the rest of our lives. 

Hello, my name is Cindy and I am a Carbaholic. 
I am 14 days sober and 9 lbs down.
Like any respectable carbaholic, I hit the internet looking for awesome cheats!  First I found this one.

So the search continued.  Next I found this little number.

Wow, I don't know how people manage to lose weight so fast like that! It's a s-l-o-w proccess for me, but low-carb is the only thing that seems to make the scale budge, even a teensy bit, so it's worth it (for now, at least!).

And boy oh boy are you right about the recipes on the internet! They are hit, or big-time MISS. So, so many things that have luscious-looking pics turn out tasting like cardboard (actually, I'd prefer cardboard over some of the experiments we've tried...). Thanks for sharing, and keep it up, please!
