2010 in review

Posted by Solitary Dancer on January 2, 2011

Thought this would be fun to post.  It’s the last look at 2010 and now let’s get on with 2011


The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Fresher than ever.

A helper monkey made this abstract painting, inspired by your stats.

The average container ship can carry about 4,500 containers. This blog was viewed about 21,000 times in 2010. If each view were a shipping container, your blog would have filled about 5 fully loaded ships.


In 2010, there was 1 new post, growing the total archive of this blog to 1099 posts.

The busiest day of the year was May 6th with 181 views. The most popular post that day was Flax Meal Pizza Crust.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were kalynskitchen.blogspot.com, search.aol.com, lowcarbconfidential.com, grace2882.wordpress.com, and google.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for microwave bread, tandoori chicken, cream of zucchini soup recipe, pork medallions with mushroom sauce, and cream of zucchini soup.

Hold That Thought

Posted by Solitary Dancer on April 19, 2009

Just a quick note to let you know I’ll be backed up on posting.  I just found out that the service that hosted a lot of my pictures for this blog, is shutting down the end of this month. 

So, I’m scrambling to try and get things in order. Bear with me and things will get back to normal as soon as possible.

Not Far, Just On Break

Posted by Solitary Dancer on December 4, 2008

I’m not far away.  I’m just in need of a break. 

Work is very busy and I’m trying to get things wrapped up before I go on vacation.  I have not forgotten about everyone and I hope you understand.

I have a bunch of great recipes for the holidays and I hope you will take a look through some of them.

Click here to see the recipes I have included in the Holidays category.  This is no where near all of them.  Check around and I know you’ll find something that will be perfect for your holiday season.

Enjoy the season everyone.  I’ll be back in a few weeks.  I promise!

Blog Update

Posted by Solitary Dancer on July 17, 2008

As I move through some changes in my life I will not be posting each and every day.  I will post fairly regularly so there will always be something new.  I just won’t be doing this every single day.

There is also a chance that I may give this blog to another person.  This may or may not happen.  If it does, this person will continue on in the same spirit that this blog was created.

For now, I am here and will continue to add, what I consider to be, good recipes for you to enjoy.

No Go Chocolate Cake

Posted by Solitary Dancer on May 19, 2008

BLECH, I tried to modify the Vegan Chocolate Cake recipe and it was not a good thing. In my head, I thought it would work.


Oh well, so far the only thing that can find it’s way to this blog is the Fried Tofu. It is delicious but I have to figure out how to share my Vegan recipes to those of you who are very carb conscious. Give me some time and I’ll get something together. I won’t post just anything. I have to believe the recipe to be good, or see good reviews.

Hang in there and I’ll get the hang of this.

If you have any ideas, recipes or tips please let me know. I would love to hear from you.

Future Plans

Posted by Solitary Dancer on May 18, 2008

In my previous post I mentioned a change in the direction of this blog.  Well, here it is.

I will no longer be posting recipes that include meat and/or animal products.  I have not eaten meat in awhile and to continue posting recipes that contain these items goes against my heart.

I used to be a Vegan, many years ago.  I’ve found my way back and it does my heart and soul good.

Do high protein, low carb recipes work in helping control diabetes?  Basically, yes.  It’s individual and each of us must find what works for us.  It’s up to us to find the right balance for optimum health.

I will keep all the recipes I have posted right here.  I will not remove them.  But, going forward the posts will not be daily and will be Vegan based and relatively low carb.

Since the switch, I have experienced lower fasting blood sugars and very slowly a better overall healthy feeling.  It’s slow but I have stopped taking various prescriptions since changing my way of eating.  For me it’s a healthy way and besides, my heart knows it’s the right thing to do.

Do I think everyone should be a Vegan?  I think it’s a personal choice. 

So, I hope you continue to visit and discover some new recipes that you just might find delicious.  If you’re not that brave, you will always find a good recipe that is tried and true.  There will be something for everyone to enjoy.

I think I have rambled enough.  Now I am working on a chocolate cake recipe that will work for low carbers and be Vegan safe.  Here’s a picture of the cake that I’m going to work on.  I just need to make sure Splenda works like sugar when baked.  Other than that, just swap out for Carbalose flour and you should be good to go.  Stay tuned. . .

With An Attitude Of Gratitude

Posted by Solitary Dancer on January 12, 2007

It has been way too long since I’ve said Thank You!

I get so wrapped up in work and other projects I forget to stop and say thank you to each and every one of you that have been kind enough to donate to The Taming Of The Diabeastie.

Believe me this means so much to me.  All the pennies I can gather are making it possible for me to begin creating something very special for the diabetic chef or chef wannabe!  I have faith in my project but faith can’t buy supplies.

A simple thank you doesn’t seem to effectively express the gratitude I feel for you and your kind gesture.  But, that’s all the words I have.

Thank You from the bottom of my heart.
