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 […]

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 […]
