Ice Cream!

I’ve been on an ice cream kick lately.  I found Rebel ice cream at our local HyVee, which is pretty good.  The texture isn’t quite right to me, but it’s not bad if you don’t want to make your own.  But remember how good homemade ice cream is?  Well,...

Keto Barbecue Sauce

Summer’s in full-swing and I had this sudden craving for BBQ sauce.  It can be hard to find prepared condiments that are truly keto-friendly so if you’re willing to take just a few minutes; this one is easy, quick, delicious, with no need to worry about sugars or fillers....

Cheesecake Fluff

When I first started this way of eating, this cheesecake fluff was very helpful.  It’s tasty,  easy to make, and  filling.  Later on, I found my cravings for sweets subsided, so we don’t have it very often these days.  But we’ve been on vacation and I thought it would...

Keto Meatballs

I recently discovered that my grandson is a meatball fan.  Okay, so these aren’t Olive Garden meatballs, but he and the rest of the family loved these! Mark enjoyed this appetizer on the patio before the rest of the fam arrived. I mixed two pounds of ground beef, one...

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,...

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...

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:)...

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...

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...
