Have you ever wondered how I come up with low carb keto recipes, like these Keto Carb Nut-free Tangy Lemon Cookies? Well, you may be in for a surprising treat.3 You see for me it usually starts with rummaging through my baking cupboard and saying a prayer.

I don’t mean like a casual prayer. This girl truly invites Jesus into her baking process. If that sounds strange to you, you have lots to learn about me.

Can I be truly transparent with you? I think my baking pantry may shock some of you because of its simplicity and lack of ingredients.1
