I’ve been eating low carb all day everyday since July and the hardest part has been when I start craving some delicious crunchy and yummy and oh so tasty fried chicken. I’m not completely giving up carbs for the rest of my life (or fried chicken), but eating low carb is a life style change that has been working great for me and I do allow myself some cheat days on special occasions. For now my low carb crispy chicken recipe is the perfect meal to satisfy my fried chicken cravings while avoiding wheat flour.
It’s an easy meal to make if you plan a bit ahead. The actual prep of the chicken takes me about 10 minutes for me (now that I make it so often). It’s just letting the “breading” sit on the chicken for about an hour that you’ll need to plan ahead for. Trust me. It’s worth letting it sit on there.
Are you ready to make this for yourself?

I hate it when I go to grab some veggies from our vegetable drawer and they are already a squish mess even though I purchased them the day before. It drives me nuts! To keep our mass of vegetables fresh longer I tried out some Rubbermaid FreshWorks Produce Saver containers and they truly worked. They are easy to use. I just toss all my vegetables that I got from the store (or the garden) right into the containers and they lasted longer than keeping them in the bags I brought them home in. The containers have a FreshVent technology to keep produce fresher up to 80% longer* than traditional produce packaging. I’ll probably be saving some money now that I won’t be wasting as many vegetables. The containers come in six different sizes so you can fit all types of fruits and vegetables in these containers.
I’m loving my Venus Fly Trap Pumpkin Candy Holder DIY. Since we have two kiddos to take our trick or treating we won’t be around the house to hand out candy to the kiddos out there! So this year I’ve made a Venus Fly Trap Candy Holder. I can just toss a bag of candy into the mouth of this carnivorous plant, tie it to my plant and we can head out on our own Halloween adventure. The neighborhood kids can help themselves to the candy (or just one teenager can help themselves to the candy, ha).
It make look complicated, but I promise it was quite easy and you really don’t need to be an amazing artist to create this plant friend.
I don’t even know if I need to say anything about Feast. Just look at these photos and you can tell how delicious and fun the Smoked! event was. Feast is a one-of-a-kind large-scale event featuring trendsetting chefs from all over the country and the world, to intimate hands-on classes, collaborative dinners and panels. Basically it’s about 4 days of eating amazing food.
I think my favorite food from the event was the smoked beef tartare with grilled bone marrow from St. Jack Restaurant and Bar. It really was delicious, but that bone marrow might be tied with the wagyu brisket with smoked tomatoes and spicy curry from Matts BBQ and Langbaan (it’s the plate in the middle with rice in the photo above). OMG.
If you weren’t able to make it out to any of the Feast events this year: I’m truly sorry. It’s an amazing event and I plan on attending each and every year from now and through forever. If you want to go next year be sure to sign up for the Feast newsletter so you will know when tickets come up for sale because they typically sell out before the event starts. The next Feast is in September 2018! Maybe I’ll see you there?

There are 3 new pins up in the shop! My Ringpop pin now comes in pink in addition to red. Yay! And for all of my socially awkward and weirdo people: A pink socially awkward badge and a “no touching!” pin. I personally think the no touching pin is perfect for all the pregnant ladies.
Head on over to the shop to check them out!
I am beyond excited for Feast! I loooove food. I eat a very limited amount of carbs these days, but I’ll work my way around that. If you want to keep up with my Feast adventures, you can follow along on my IG: @thepapermama.
If you want to go there are still a few events left that are not sold out. You can check out the Feast schedule here.

It’s that time of year again. It’s time to enjoy all the amazing foodie goodness that Portland has to offer. This will be my second year attending and I cannot wait to check out the Smoked event. I get to explore the food made by 22 world-class chefs and an array of cocktails, fine wines and craft beers to cool it all down, too. I have already planned out my day to make sure I can fit all that food into my belly.
This Smoked event is sold out, but there’s still a way to get in if you buy “The Package”. The Package will get you into 5 amazing events: Friday and Saturday Grand Tasting, the Sandwich Invitational, the Night Market, Smoked!, and Brunch Village. If that’s out of your budget there are still a ton of other events available. Check out their schedule to see if there’s one that sparks your interest.
Hope to see you there!
