What We’ve Been Up To

Once again it was great to see everybody at our meeting earlier this week!  We welcomed two newcomers. For those of you new to keto, be sure to check out my favorite resources for getting started. Holiday Treat Sampling It always makes me happy when people like my cooking, so it was nice to hear […]

Swiss & Green Onion Appetizer

Is this not the cutest little snowman?!? We had a post-Thanksgiving luncheon and so we had a little Thanksgiving decor and a little Christmas too. This is a Swiss & Green Onion cheese spread that my grandson has loved since he was a baby.  I remember when he was about two years old, he tried […]

Keto Peanut Butter Cups

I had planned to make peanut butter cups for Halloween, but our October just went haywire so these became November peanut butter cups.  I’ve made two batches and have another one in process for our next local meeting peeps to sample and my guess is we’ll make these again for Thanksgiving and again for the […]

Keto Strong

Our October was pretty awful.  Two deaths; one shocking and unexpected, and one after a long debilitating illness. We are still reeling.  But our friends and family dropped everything and helped us get through the initial days.  Our friend Lee Ann brought keto bagels, both savory and sweet, which were so helpful to have around […]

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 […]

Cupcakes!

These were so good!  Both iced and un-iced.  Made with coconut flour, which seems to yield a much softer texture cake.  They taste like I remember hostess cupcakes tasting.  Only it’s been three years since I’ve had anything like a hostess cupcake, so they may not taste anything like them.  Actually, I would bet these […]

Chili Cheese Dog Bake

Last year, our friend Jen found this recipe and passed it along to us. We had a few days of  fall temps and this was one of the first recipes I wanted to have with the cooler weather  We love it! 2 lb ground beef 10 hot dogs, cut into bite-sized pieces (we use Nathan’s […]
