Delicious dark chocolate truffles

I admit it. I have a sweet tooth. It’s hard for me to resist sweet delicious treats. But most of the time, I don’t need a lot. Just a quick bite or two to satisfy my cravings, then I’m good. You’ve ERND it! So when ERND (like, “you’ve earned it!”) asked if I’d like to try some low-carb fine Belgium chocolates, I was all over it. I hadn’t tried anything from ERND before, so I was excited to find out what all the fuss was about. If you haven’t seen their stuff before, then you’ll definitely want to check them

One missing cracker makes a lot of difference

I got excited when I saw these! Delicious Club Crackers! I love them. But I struggle to limit how many I eat in one sitting. They are so good – it’s easy to eat a lot of them. I’m only slightly embarrassed to admit that I can easily enjoy a whole sleeve of club crackers in a bowl of soup unless I put countermeasures in place. And I’m talking about the regular full-size sleeve of crackers, not the little Snack Stacks pictured here. When I talk about putting countermeasures in place, Snack Stacks are (almost) a great example. Instead of

The Candy in My Pocket with John Robert Wiltgen

I had a chance to catch up with John Robert Wiltgen, the fascinating international award-winning JRW Design founder. I’m enjoying his recent blog posts and stories and want to spread the word in case you might enjoy them too. John was diagnosed with diabetes at 8 years old. He’s lived with diabetes for more than 53 years now and has faced many challenges. I enjoy his positive attitude and how he continues to charge forth and do what he loves. Over the course of his life, he built an incredible design business. He’s won more than 40 major design awards,

Why is my hand so sticky?

Skin Tac is an adhesive barrier that helps keep things stuck to your skin. I’ve been a fan for a long time. It does a great job adding some extra stick to the adhesive on my CGM sensor. It comes in in a bottle of liquid with a spongy applicator or in individual wipes. I usually use the bottled liquid, but the wipes are nice for traveling or emergency backup. The opposite is also available. TacAway. For when you need to unstick what you’ve stuck. I don’t need TacAway often, but when I do, I appreciate how neatly it cleans
