If you’ve been following along, you know I’ve been promising some big news for the past couple of weeks, but wasn’t ready to share what it was. I have to say, I’m totally blown away by the outpouring of kindness I’ve received in response to that announcement. It means a lot to know that so many of you are interested and paying attention! And I have to say, it makes me that much more excited to share today’s low carb cloud bread oopsie rolls recipe.
I’ll get to the announcement in a bit, but first I have to address one question. The big question that I’ve been getting from people when I announced that I have mysterious news.
Many of you have impatiently asked if the big news would be an upcoming Wholesome Yum cookbook. I definitely wish that it was! I’m not quite there yet, but I do hope that one day soon I’ll be sharing that exciting announcement with you. We get a little bit closer to that as more new people find out about Wholesome Yum, so go tell a friend (or three) if you’re looking forward to that day, too. (Come on, I know you know someone that would love these low carb cloud bread oopsie rolls!)
Seriously, how awesome would it be to have a collection of easy, low carb, and gluten-free recipes – all with just a few ingredients – in a cookbook? A girl can dream…
Back to reality, this past weekend has been a whirlwind. My husband was out of town racing his car at the track, so it was just my daughter and I at home for the weekend. Her recent bout of teething finally came to an end, to be replaced by even more joyful exuberance. (If you ever wondered how much energy and happiness one little human can possibly possess, spend an hour with an eighteen-month-old!) I had games to play with her, work to catch up on from my software engineering day job, new food photos to take, blog posts to write, finances to go over, Todoist tasks to review, the entire house to clean and organize… the long and mostly boring list goes on. How people get it all done with two (or more) kids, I will always wonder.
Well, not really… because apparently I’m going to find out in six months! Yes, the big news is more personal that you may have expected:
My husband and I are expecting another little girl at the end of April!
This is why the blog posts have been sparse. This is why I haven’t been feeling well for weeks now, while desperately trying to hide it from everyone. This is why it has been so difficult to write when I couldn’t mention the big thing that was truly on my mind, because we just weren’t ready to share this with the world until the end of the first trimester.
Being a food blogger suffering from severe all-day nausea, fatigue, and food aversions has been taxing, to say the least. Testing recipes is such a challenge when the food not only tastes different, but you don’t feel like eating in the first place. Even my favorite cloud bread oopsie rolls haven’t been tasting the same. Fortunately, having an existing backlog of photographed recipes saved me during these last couple months. (Hooray for advance planning!) Now, as these issues will be winding down at the end of the first trimester, I’m back to creating brand new recipes for you.
Just to get it out of the way, being pregnant does not mean my recipes will be any different. Low carb and gluten-free all the way for this girl! I may throw in some higher carb sweet potatoes or higher-sugar fruit into my own diet, but you won’t see any of that on the blog. Pinky promise.
If you happen to be missing carbs, though, I have the answer for you.
Mascarpone cloud bread oopsie rolls.
Oh my goodness, you guys, this stuff is incredible. As far as I can tell, the original oopsie rolls recipe came fom Your Lighter Side. I decided to try making them with mascarpone, and I think I like this version even better!
These little golden oopsie rolls are light and airy, but the best part is that the mascarpone in this cloud bread has an unmatched buttery flavor. They are just perfect for pretty much any sandwich, but without the carbs. If you’re missing bread or having doubts about whether a good no carb bread exists, wonder no more. Mascarpone cloud bread oopsie rolls are your answer.
(P.S. For another amazing low carb and gluten-free way to use mascarpone, try my four-ingredient mascarpone crepes!)
