I believe I shared with you earlier this month how I’ve decided to do the Keto Diet. It’s still going extremely well, despite my earlier misgivings that I wouldn’t be able to satisfy my desire for those forbidden foods. Well, let me just say I’ve discovered Keto Desserts, and just this weekend my daughter and I made the spectacular one pictured above. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I’m able to enjoy one of my most favorite desserts of all time on this diet: Cheesecake!

Of course, this is a mini version, and it’s made without granulated sugar, but oh is this a delicious alternative to the original! To be honest, I could eat this version even when I’m not doing Keto and enjoy it. Rather than graham crackers, the crust is made of almond meal, butter, and Swerve (and if you want to be fancy, you can add cinnamon). The filling is of course, cream cheese, egg, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and Swerve sweetener. Yummy!

Check out the Mini Keto Cheesecakes recipe below.*

I was cooking and planning this weekend, Instead of writing. Sorry!

Two racy romance novellas from one bestselling author.


Karen Freeman is nine years post-op from a double mastectomy. Returning to a normal dating and sex life has been difficult. Her most meaningful relationship after surgery occurred with a man other than her husband. 

Paul Beaudelaire, former ladies’ man, had his career in the corps cut short by the loss of his left leg. He returned to New Orleans with a state-of-the-art prosthesis, but left his heart in Baltimore with an ex-model, whose crippled marriage was the only deterrent to his waning honor. A fantasy weekend at The Beaudelaire Hotel may give him a second chance with his contemporary Amazon.


Sabine Beaudelaire returns to her hometown of New Orleans to the bedside of her favorite uncle, Sebastian Beaudelaire. Estranged for six months from her fiancé of eight years, she still hopes for reconciliation. But her hopes are short-lived.

Enter a gorgeous “Hot IT Guy”, aka Xander “Fish” Fisbourne, whose sex appeal fills her head with thoughts of propositioning a man for the first time. Fishbourne and the Den of Sin may be exactly what Sabine needs to bring her out of her sexual drought.

Mini Keto Cheescakes*


1/2 cup almond meal
2 tbsp butter

8 oz. cream cheese
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 pinch salt
1/4 cup Swerve or  So Nourished erythritol


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. To make the crust, melt some butter until liquid and mix in your almond meal until you have some that feels like crumbly play dough.
  2. Take about a teaspoon at a time and press the dough into the bottom of a muffin tin. Tip: line your pan with cupcake liners for easy removal! Cheesecake is very soft and if hard to scoop out without causing damage! Bake these crusts for about 5 minutes. They’ll come out slightly brown and crispy.
  3. Then take your room temperature cream cheese and beat it with an electric hand mixer or standing mixer until creamy. Then add vanilla extract, lemon, an egg and your sugar substitute, erythritol in our case. Beat until all combined.
  4. Use an ice cream scooper to fill all the crust-bottomed muffin tin cups evenly almost to the top (the mini cheesecakes will rise while in the oven but will flatten while refrigerating). You can also line each cup with a cupcake liner to make removing the mini cheesecakes easier.
  5. Bake at 350°F for about 15 minutes. The mini cheesecakes should be slightly jiggly. Let them cool in the refrigerator for ideally 24 hours. But if you’re strapped for time, try putting them in the freezer for as long as you can.
  6. Once the mini cheesecakes are done cooling, slide a knife around the edges of each muffin cup to loosen them up. Then use a fork and your hands to help them out cleanly. As a delicious bonus, slice up some strawberries and arrange them however you like on top of the mini cheesecakes.
  7. We arranged ours in a flower pattern and added a dot of coconut butter in the middle to finish them off.
