Keto Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins Plus Steps In Video


Hello friends and welcome to my Blog! 


I have always had a sweet tooth, but I love that it's under control since starting Keto. As you know, I eat high fat and low carb diet while on Keto and having snacks like this on hand is a huge help. Not to mention, this muffin is fantastic. 

I am now just over a 50-pound weight loss, and I feel amazing. It's important to know that Keto is the type of lifestyle where you need to prepare items in advance to have for snacks. Muffins are the perfect items that allow you to grab and go. 

From the start, muffins have been a great tool to help me stay on track with Keto. They are perfect for breakfast but also a great snack during the day. Let's say you have a lunch ready to go, but your meeting runs over. That's had a muffin on hand will always carry you through. 

They also work as a great dessert treat after dinner if you feel like you need something sweet. 


This recipe is easy to make, and I store them in the refrigerator until I am ready to eat them. I microwave them for 20 seconds to take the chill off, and they taste like they came right out of the oven. In the video, I share tips on how to get the cream cheese to mix perfectly. 




You can click the title link above for the full breakdown of the recipe. I don't just save this recipe for the Fall season, but they are perfect as we enter October, and the air is full of everything pumpkin. I do think you will love these! 


I have my step by step video below to help you make these. I really do love everything about them. They are so easy to make and full of pumpkin flavor. 


See you in my next post friends!

My Fall Bucket List for This Year | Mrs. Erica


Hello friends and welcome to my blog! 

It seems like every year I want to put together a Fall Bucket List, but time gets away from me. As soon as I think I have time I find out Fall is gone and its time for me to start shopping for Christmas. Well, not this year! I sat down on September 30th and made it a priority to make my list. I am not going to let time slip away from me without completing my bucket list! 


Visit a Pumpkin Patch- this year, I want to find a local farmer that has a pumpkin patch that will allow us to walk through and pick out our pumpkin. I have always thought this would be so much fun and it's on the top of my list. 

Bake Pumpkin Treats- I cant wait to have my kitchen fill up with the scent of fresh-baked pumpkin items. I am looking forward to muffins, bread, and cookies. 

Burn A Fall Candle- I can check this one off the list because I have it burning now as you can see from the photo. The minute October 1st hit I pulled out my first Fall candle. 


Enjoy An Evening Fire Around Our Firepit- This one is going to have to wait for a little while because it is still so hot here in the deep South, but the minute a cold front moves in I have my lighter in hand! 

Go For A Family Bike Ride- I can not wait to pack up our bikes on a Saturday and take them on a beautiful bike trail across the Bay. I can already imagine the cool breeze blowing through my hair. I am very excited about this one! 

Spend the Day Off-Line- I am going to pair this one with the day I go on our bike ride. I am going to leave my phone at home and take in every minute with my family. I am not going to worry about emails, text messages, or social media. Just a day away from it all! 

Try A New Restaurant- So many times we think we need to go on vacation to enjoy something new, but I am amazed how many restaurants are in the City that I have never tried before. My goal is to find one new restaurant and try it to help support local businesses. 


Go For A Long Walk On A Wooded Trail- This is something that I am looking forward to making a day off with Eddie. It's another excellent opportunity to turn everything off and enjoy time together. 

Take An Outdoor Yoga Class- The gym I belong to offers an outdoor yoga class during each season, and this Fall, I am going to make sure I take part in it. They only offer one class per season, so fingers crossed I can make it. 

Enjoy Evenings On My Porch- I can not wait for it to cool off enough for me to sit on my porch and enjoy the evening. I am looking forward to sitting out there and listening to a podcast or audible books. I might even use that time to work on editing and blog posts. Most importantly, I want to enjoy it while it's cool. 

Take Part In The Neighborhood Trick or Treat Event- Our neighborhood has a big event each year, and I want to make sure Eddie, Trey, and I take part in it this year. Of course, I know Trey is a senior, and we are not going knocking on doors but to get out and visit with everyone will be fun as we watch the little ones knock on all the doors with their adorable costumes. 

I can't wait to hear if you are making Fall Bucket List! Be sure to sign up for my weekly newsletter by scrolling to the top of this post and entering your information. I hope you all have an excellent start to your Fall! 


Happy October!

Keto Peanut Butter Fudge Snack Plus Cook With Me Video Steps



Hello friends and welcome to my blog! 

I have always had a sweet tooth, but I love that it's under control since starting Keto. As you know, I eat high fat and low carb diet while on Keto and having snacks like this on hand is a huge help. Not to mention, this fudge is fantastic. 


My biggest tip for someone starting on a Keto journey, it's essential to have snacks prepared. You can't just run-up to the store in most cases and pick a snack up that is premade. When I go in the kitchen looking for a sweet treat, it's going to be something I premade and not like my life was before Keto. Remember that it's a good thing you cant just run-up to the store and pick up a bag of candy. You just need to be prepared. 



It's full of that great peanut butter taste and also has the added fat I need during the day. It's creamy in texture and perfect to eat at home or pack up for work. 


I am a big fan of the website - All Day I Dream About Food. Carolyn does a fantastic job with all of the recipes she puts together. She focuses on low carb and gluten-free recipes which is perfect for someone like me that lives a Keto lifestyle. 

You can find all the details for her recipe HERE. Thanks so much for stopping by today and be sure to check out the video below where I share a Cook With Me session. 



See you in my next post, friends!
