Tips for Baking with Coconut Flour

If you’ve tried baking with coconut flour and your baked goods turned out too dry, here’s the scoop. Coconut flour is highly absorbent. It’s going to absorb a LOT of liquid. Once you get the hang of it, it produces a lighter baked good than almond flour; so I like it for that reason. Here’s […]

What We’ve Been Up To: Recap

Once again it was so great to see you at our Tuesday night meeting!  Food Samples We sampled these, both of which got a thumbs up review.  I’m so glad you liked them 🙂 1) Easy pizza cups that turn into individually portioned mini pizzas and 2) Almond butter fat bombs. Getting Back on Track […]

Almond Butter Fat Bombs

Fat bombs are (often sweetened) high-fat bites that can be used strategically in our keto life.  They can be helpful for people who are just starting out, especially when hunger is still an issue.  After we’ve been on this way of eating for a while, our hunger level goes down and we don’t need between-meal […]

Pizza Cups

These are an easy way to make individual portions of a crustless version of pizza.  Grease a muffin tin and set the oven to 350 degrees.  You’ll need 12 slices of pepperoni from the deli.  Those are a little bigger in diameter and they’ll fill the cup better.  Cut four small slits into the sides […]

Spicy Cheese Sauce

I heard about using Sodium Citrate for making a good cheese sauce on one of 2 Keto Dudes podcasts and I’ve had it on my list of things to try for a while now.  It was so good! And so easy! You can find Sodium Citrate (also known as trisodium citrate) on Amazon. I put […]
