    Howdy, y'all!

    When I get home from the summer hideout, I have to get back into the keto swing of things. I haven't really faltered too much, I think I've had two baked potatoes all summer, and nothing else remotely close to being considered a delicious, carb-dense treat. (Holy $%&% were those potatoes delicious.)

    Anyway, I started this whole VERY low carb thing mid 2021, and I pride myself on finding "cheat code*" foods to keep the cravings at bay. I'm a cookie and doughy treat HOUND. Chips and salty type treats I can live without, but the flour and butter and sugar - it's tough. Kinda like cigarettes, I've ditched the whole "must have" mindset, but once in a while, I still like to have some form of ersatz baked good, or other type of sinful treat. I'll always be a fat kid at heart, just hopefully not body. Workin on it.

    When in Destin / Pensacola this year, I found a few FANTASTIC treat mongers at the local farmers' mkts. Donuts, cookies, muffins, nut brittle, mini bundt cakes, etc. I didn't know things could be that good on a very low carb lifestyle. One lady's stuff (NaturBaker Nutrition) was made with pumpkin and sunflower flour, I think, and another noteworthy purveyor (Got Baked) used the standard nut flower / coconut flour for her goods.

    I'm on the hunt for similar, prepared, keto treats in the Chicagoland area if anyone has any suggestions. I can search the web for this stuff, but checking here as well, since I know firsthand that most of you have tastebuds that work.

    *Short list of my favorite cheat code treats right now:
    Enlightened brand Caramel Double Dough ice cream.
    Russell Stover sugar free peanut/nougat clusters.
    Russell Stover sugar free candy coated chocolate peanuts. (they are M&Ms)
    Werther's sugar free hard caramels (the caramel /chocolate one tops the list)
    Aldi brand Keto burger buns
    Pork Rinds with guac
    Sugar Free Sweet Baby Rays Bq sauce is not bad AT ALL!!!
    Tandoori smoked nuts (homemade)
    Those Keto Cluster things in the orange/white bag that Costco sells.

    My day to day dessert is generally a big spoonful of sugar free pudding topped with a handful of fresh berries and a handful of unsalted nuts. It's the lap of luxury these days, but once in a while, ol Fatty Magoo here needs a freekin fake donut.
    We cannot be friends if you do not know the difference between Mayo and Miracle Whip.

    Bit of a ride but they just opened a Parlor Donuts near me here in Valpo—the Keto donuts are supposed to be pretty fab, though can’t say I’ve tried them.
