Pork Belly

We love pork belly at our house!  When roasted, it tastes like a fatty pork chop.  When roasted, then sliced and baked again, it tastes like thick crispy bacon. If you’re interested in trying it, you can usually find it at your local meat market.  Our local Sam’s also...

Keto Restaurant Meals

Some shots of meals that we’ve enjoyed at our local restaurants lately: The salad bar with steak & brocooli at Alexander’s: A hot dog at the ballgame!  We didn’t bother asking for it without the bun, we just ignored it 🙂   This plate of bacon was ordered as...

Reuben Casserole Bake

I have always loved Reuben’s.  I remember my mama making them for us when we were growing up and they were always a special favorite.  So let’s make a keto version 🙂 Commercially prepared thousand island dressing is definitely not a keto option.  So it’s time to make up...

Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies

I often make these quick easy cookies when the grandchildren are coming over.  They turn out thin and crispy and we all love them!  One recipe makes twelve smaller sized thin cookies, so double it if you’re having more people over. You can also melt the chocolate chips and...
