Blake for something sweet for the weekend that didn’t involve pumpkin. I guess I wore him out already this pumpkin season. He’s a banana lover so I tried out a classic banana cream pie recipe tweaked to cut out the sugar and grains. The recipe is gluten-free, sugar-free, grain-free, but does contain dairy and eggs. […]
There’s nothing quite as satisfying as a really good bowl of pho. That broth! So I decided to make a low-carb version with shirataki noodles. They hold up great and make for an awesome bowl of shirataki noodle pho.
Wow, blueberry swirl cheesecake! I got some fantastic looking blueberries at the farmer’s market this weekend and I wasn’t sure what to do with them. They kept staring at me every time I opened the refrigerator. Since I have a fabulous cheesecake recipe, I thought why not try something different and work on a blueberry […]
This lemon-lime electrolyte Popsicle recipe saved my damned life last week! We live in Arizona, and this summer is brutal. We’re going on 50 days of over 100-degree temps and last week our central air conditioning went out! Yup. During an excessive heat warning, temps of 116-122 degrees, the fan that cools the condenser blew […]
Cool off with this refreshing strawberry creamsicle recipe! These are so easy and so delicious. They’re also sugar-free with no weird additives and easy on the body! Just like my coconut avocado creamsicle recipe, all you really need to make these delicious treats is a blender and a popsicle mold or some cups and sticks!
Roasted Chicken thighs! The most delicious meat candy on earth if you can get the skin succulently crispy and lightly salted! These fatty babies are a major staple in our house. So easy and delicious, here’s how I make them!
Avocados aren’t just for savory dishes. They’re great in desserts as well. I’ve seen them used in chocolate pudding and flourless brownie recipes. So I figured, why not use them in a fudgesicle? Only I decided to change up the flavors and created a coconut avocado creamsicle that turned out really great!
Here’s a really cool looking treat that I found not too long ago, Sea Glass Jello. It’s a fun and funky treat that was really easy to make low-carb once I found a sugar-free sweetened condensed milk substitute.
I love guacamole! There’s nothing quite like fresh guacamole made table-side at an authentic Mexican restaurant. So good and it’s actually really simple to make at home! I make homemade guacamole at least once a week.
There’s no real replacement for the all-mighty potato, but these celery root french fries are a pretty good snack. I am a serious potato addict! Mashed, baked, scalloped, roasted, hashed, chipped, and especially french fried. I love the potato in so many ways, but while eating low carb or keto, these guys are a wee […]
Dark meat chicken, is the best chicken! I just love dark meat and crispy skin on my chicken. I mean, if I’m really honest, most of the time I just want the skin and could care less about the meat. This crispy chicken leg quarters recipe is a staple in our house. I think you’ll love […]
Have you ever tried green olive tuna salad? It sounds crazy right? Who in the world would put green olives in their tuna salad!? I did and I’m not mad about it! I am on a serious tuna kick at the moment. It seems to be my go-to lunchtime craving lately and I’ve been experimenting […]
Who says squash is boring? I know, I would totally rather have a big fat basket of real french fries…but these summer squash fries actually work to kill that craving. Squash makes for a (surprisingly) tasty snack when you’re thinking about reaching for the fries or chips! Give these summer squash fries a try the […]
I’m constantly on the hunt for new side dishes! I particularly love veggie side dishes. There just never seem to be enough options and every now and then we kinda get tired of the same old roasted veggies. This tangy coleslaw recipe is the perfect solution to side dish monotony! I’ve actually never been a […]
