Red Velvet Cake ~ a Trim Healthy Mama S dessert

Red Velvet cake has been calling my name. 

I am not kidding when I tell you, I have been dreaming of

Red Velvet cake!


Christmas is not Christmas without it!


I told some of my blogging buddies that I was creating a Red Velvet Cake..

They have been patently waiting for it..

Here it is with just a few pictures I was able to snap before

it was devoured by my Church family.

Honey Bun for one



I used to love honey buns…

Well, lets be honest.. I still love them.

But I will not eat them any longer.

(They are not healthy for me… LOL)

Last week temptation.. (I resisted… yay!)  hit when I saw a lady in the store

chomping down on one… It got me thinking..

I could make me one.. right?


Of course   I could…







for the cake:

1 tablespoon flax seed meal

1 tablespoon coconut flour

1 tablespoon oat fiber

3 teaspoon sweet blend

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 egg

2 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk

 1 tablespoon melted butter


Cinnamon Mix:

2 teaspoon sweet blend

1/2 teaspoon  cinnamon




2 tablespoon powdered sweet blend

1 tablespoon of softened butter

1 tablespoon  almond milk



Mix the cake ingredients together.

   In a sprayed ramekin, add half the batter, pour the cinnamon mix on the batter, topping with the rest of the batter.

Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 mins.  or Microwave for a min or so.. ( I don’t have a microwave so I don’t know the time it would take to get it done.)

Add Glaze to cooked cake…

Destressing the Holidays

Holidays can always become very stressful for us moms.
We find ourselves with a list of party invites, family gatherings, our shopping lists and  don't forget the Christmas play practices, and the Church Christmas party.
All this is added to what we already have on our busy plates.
Sometimes we find ourselves just overwhelmed with it all..
While I may not be able to help you with your lists, I do have a
few tips that can help you in the school department.
How to have a stress free Holiday School Season:
Lighten the load...
I have found that a lighter load of official school work.. is the key to a stress free month.  Who said that you have to do every subject
every day of every week of every month!
Lighten your load this month, you can always catch up later!
Enjoyable projects...
Find things that your child and you enjoy and do them...
My girls love to help me bake, so doing December, we spend a whole lot of time baking... getting ready for all those parties!
Or you can...
Take this  month off
I know may homeschooling families that just take the month of December off!  A winter vacation if you will..
Happy December!

Scripture of the Month

1 Thessalonians 5:24
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

He is faithful to do all He has promised in his Word. I'm so glad that he is faithful to meet our needs and to give us our wants. There is no one Greater than OUR LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!
