It’s been awhile since we’ve really posted anything new, the reason is that we’ve been busy at work on our new mobile app for The Diabetic Skillet, and learning the new world of app making! It’s been a lot of fun, and a great learning experience …that curve was pretty steep, and happy to say we made it and look forward to launching several more mobile apps! I love using my iPad in the kitchen, and hope to see many bloggers and cooks with fun apps out there!
If you’re interested in making an app, I’ve gotten pretty good at it, just email me at Chris@TheSimpleSkillet.com
Now, onward to this delicious low calorie, low fat, and delicious Creamy Cauliflower Soup (my husband was my tester on this, and had no idea it was low calorie and low fat:
