i know it’s october and everywhere you look it’s pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin. i love pumpkin as much as the next guy, but this recipe from The Everyday Ketogenic Kitchen from carolyn ketchum is one not to be missed. truthfully, as soon as the book arrived last week i had planned on making the apple cider doughnut bites. then, i thought about trying the maple bacon pancake muffins, you know how i love my pancakes and waffles especially with bacon in them. but then i saw this bread. lemon popyseed is a favorite in this house, plus this is such an easy recipe; i had my bread ready for the oven in about 10 minutes. that is my kind of recipe.
