Pizza Skillet

This has become our favorite way to have pizza.  No, there’s no crust.  But really, we do not miss crust anymore.  How is that possible?  I dunno.  As much as we loved bread all our lives; after three years eating keto, we’re all about the main ingredients–cheese, sauce, meats, and toppings. This skillet is easy, […]

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

These were so easy to make.  The strawberries need to be rinsed and then allowed to dry thoroughly.  While they are drying, melt  a 9 oz package of lily’s sugar-free chocolate chips with  an ounce of cocoa butter.  If you don’t have cocoa butter, you could also use coconut oil.  Dip the dry strawberries in […]

Tomato Basil Soup

Saute some onion and garlic in butter in  the bottom of a soup pot. Add about a tablespoon of dried basil (I wish I could have found fresh, but basil isn’t in season in January!) and about a teaspoon of dried oregano. Add an 8 oz package of cream cheese and stir til it’s melted. […]

Keto Mint Thins

Don’t let the girl scouts talk you into cookies this year! There are keto versions that we can make that won’t give us grief. Give the girls a donation and let them pass the cookies along to someone else. I’ll be sending my donation to my little friend Aubrey:) So if you’re a fan of […]

Sous Vide Pork Chops

Santa brought me a sous vide for Christmas.  I’ve been wanting one for a while now but dreaded learning how to use it and figuring out where to store it.  But, from these first pork chops, I’d say it’s worth the effort!  This cooking method requires searing the meat after it’s cooked, so there are […]

Keto for the New Year 2019

Our third keto holiday.  Three years of eating good food, losing weight, and reversing diabetes.  I still remember the first time I saw a low carb progress picture on Facebook. I was sitting at Judson and Rachel’s dining room table on Dec 29th, 2015 and I immediately knew I was going to give it a […]

Christmas Keto Fudge

Melt together: One 9 oz bag of Lily’s sugar free chocolate chips (or you can use unsweetened chocolate and add your choice of sweetener), 1/4 cup butter, 3/4 cup heavy cream (you can use thick canned coconut milk instead), and 1 tsp vanilla.  Pour into silicone molds or into a baking dish. Chill thoroughly.  Turn […]

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 […]
