Ladies and gents: A piece of low carb cake.

This is Martini's piece. Sorry it's naked, I totally screwed up the frosting. (Don't ask, it was that bad.) But, even naked, this cake tasted just like that stupid Hershey snack cake I used to make. Even better, because one little piece STUFFED me and ruined my appetite for dinner... and it won't make me fat! Even with the beans, it's only about 7 carbs or so for a decent sized piece.

I made it in my little 8x8 pan, so it's nothing fancy. I forsee a bright future for this recipe in my repetoire!

Can't live without it!!! I have all three varieties and they taste good and bake beautifully. My other favorite is Steviva Blend-- also an excellent perfect sweetener.

Aw, Martini, you can't have your naked cake without a cup of coffee!

*Pours Martini a cuppa in my Hawaiian Lei mug*

Cream or "sugar?"

Weight today: did not weigh

Exercise, day 21 of 67:
Nuthin. Again.

Supplements taken

Food today:
B: bacon
L: albacore tuna w/ mayo, garlic, dillweed, pepper, avocado
S: cake
D: sirloin patty w/ mustard, asparagus w/ mayo
D: cake

Oh, the cake. WARNING: this cake is really filling. I had eyes bigger than my stomach and I ate too much cake. Wait, what? Too much cake? I didn’t think such a thing existed. Well, it does. I had too much cake and I don’t feel so hot because of it. If it had been a “real cake” I would have hogged down the whole thing and still wanted more. Oooohhh this cake is making me want to lie down in the fetal position. Sooooo fuuuullll. Bleah. Note to self: SMALL PIECE OF CAKE IS GOOD.

Tomorrow I am back at the gym. Looking forward to it! I’m not going to be all gung ho like Gymbalina over there, but I will be there doing my little featherweight routine.

My positive for the day: caaaaaaaaake.

Success today. On to day 238!

Oh man, now I'm starting to feel like the deprived god of cake felt! I'm tired of all this pudding and mousse. Need more substance. MUST. HAVE. CAKE. I think I've seen pics of that recipe on the food porn thread. Good to know that it's cheap and easy to prepare... my two favorite things! I'll have to try that this month.

Did you use Steviva or did you use a mix of sweeteners like the recipe calls for?

Ang- that story with the cake is hilarious, LOL I think that was me, LOL

I am baking this darn cake this week, I gotta go get beans, LOL What could I use for stevia extract? I have the ezsweetz drops?

It looks ideal, man I tried the ideal brown sugar to caramelize on the creme brulee last night that stuff catches like major fire, almost burnt my hair off, but makes a nice toasted marshmallow taste, the artificial sweeteners defiantly burn differently than regular sugar.

Oh that apron is too funny--love it!! I don't drink coffee but I will have a piece of that bean cake. Did Janet post the recipe and not tell moi??

Amber, you can't have Sting because he is mine. Please don't make me fight you to the death for him. LOL! I'm glad you didn't burn your hair off, otherwise you would have to borrow Martini's wig for your wedding. My brother had a girlfriend once who was a creme brulee fiend. She had this little torch thingie and little bowls and even a special tiny spoon to crack the top.

Speaking of pizza crust, I was watching Hungry Girl on tv about a week ago and she made an egg crust that looked similar to a mock danish. I wasn't really feeling it but I might try it out of curiosity. I normally just use a Mama Lupe tortilla but sometimes it gets too darn crispy.

Sorry to leave the coffee klatch but I have to get back to work. I hate Mondays!

BREAKING BAD NEWS!

Carlson's Super Daily Amino Blend has been discontinued!

I called Carlson's to see what was up and they said it has been discontinued due to poor sales. Can you believe it! This excellent product I just now discovered is now no more. Isn't that always the way? I hate Murphy's Law!!

I loved this stuff! Not only did it work, but it was one single little capsule (as opposed to 4 or 5 of other brands for the same kick) and it had no soy or starch or gluten or fillers or anything else objectionable in it.

DAMMIT!!!

Anyway, I found some online and bought two big 300 cap bottles. (vitanherbs with a coupon code EM5OFF, plus free shipping.)

Shoot. Now I'm in a bad mood.

Sorry Ang, isn't that the way it always is. It's like when you start liking a series on TV and get really involved in it they take it off of the air.

Angela, that stinks. I get mine at The Vitamin Shoppe, but don't know how the formula compares to Carlson's.
