Dirty Blondie Pancake Stack

Dirty Blondie Pancake Stack

For those of you who don’t know, today is National Pancake Day! Normally I’d be ignoring that fact, making a ketoproof coffee or some scrambled eggs, and calling it a morning. This time around, that is NOT happening – I’m making my pancakes and eating them too. When Mellissa told me I could do a guest post on her site over at I Breathe I’m Hungry, I was super excited. Such a widely known blog letting…me, of all people, post on her blog? Well, that showed I must be doing something right! I ...

Shrimp and Cauliflower Curry

Shrimp and Cauliflower Curry

I used to make a ton of curry before venturing onto a ketogenic diet, but I had to find a way to get rid of some of the ingredients. No flour to make a roux, no mango chutney for the fruitiness and spice, no milk...hmm, it was a tough one - but I think I got it worked out! Though it does take some time to thicken up (thanks Xanthan Gum for speeding that up!) it's well worth the wait. This delicious keto curry will fill your house with the smell of the aromatic spices. Cooking longer without ...

Perfect Sunday Roast

Perfect Sunday Roast

A Sunday roast is the perfect meal for any special occasion. Whether it's a birthday, holiday, or just a family get together, a roast is a classic and traditional way to get everyone around the table enjoying a fantastic meal. I came across this recipe a while back, and I've done some variations on it - in the end, I always come back to using the same recipe I found years ago. It's one of the best ways I've ever cooked a roast, and one of the most delicious ways to get the money out of a ...

Roasted Pecan Green Beans

Roasted Pecan Green Beans

Being on a ketogenic diet usually means that you're missing some kind of crunch in your meals. Whether it's meat and vegetables, a dessert, or just a snack - it's notorious for being something textually soft. These roasted pecan green beans will give you a great pick-me-up from the old and dated recipes that you're used to. The crisp and fresh green beans, the deliciously crunchy and salty pecans, and the melted cheese and garlic give a fantastic textural contrast. Not only is the texture ...

London Broil is Falling Down

London Broil is Falling Down

Every once in a while we just need something that consists of throwing a piece of meat and a couple spices into a slow cooker. Go off to work, or out of the house, and then come back to a fully cooked and delicious meal. If that's your case, this is the one for you! The meat ends up being extremely tender and pulls apart with a spoon. In memory of an old nursery rhyme I sang as a kid: "London broil is falling down, falling down, falling down. London broil is falling down, my fair lady. London ...

Sausage and Cheese Breakfast Pie

Sausage and Cheese Breakfast Pie

I know you all want something that's crusty on the outside, and delightfully soft on the inside. This savory breakfast pie has all of that, and then some. Sausage and cheese flows throughout the pie to bring a great sense of taste and texture between each bite. The top is crusted so you get just enough crunch to keep you coming back for more. Rosemary and lemon are two of my favorite combinations in savory cooking, and I certainly don't eat it enough. Though the sausage was a Bacon and ...

Coffee and Wine Beef Stew

Coffee and Wine Beef Stew

A delicious, rich, and slightly unique take on beef stew. Not so many people have heard of using coffee with beef in a stew, but trust me when I say this - you need to try it! The deep flavors that it produces is fantastic, almost similar to fish sauce that I add in other stews or chili's of mine. When you're cooking the beef, it's imperative that you don't overcrowd the pan. You want nice caramelized browns on the cubes of beef - adding more flavor as they cook down with the rest of the ...

Crispy Curry Rub Chicken Thighs

Crispy Curry Rub Chicken Thighs

A very hands off, but extremely tasty recipe - this combines the crispiness of the chicken skin with the tender, almost falling apart, meat. Though it does take nearly an hour in the oven, it will only take you about 5 minutes of prep work to have everything ready. So, once you get home from work, rub some chicken down, let it cook, and enjoy a fantastic meal - hands off, of course :) I also want to say thanks to everyone that visits the website! I know many of you come and see just 1 recipe ...

Pumpkin Cardamom Donut Holes

Pumpkin Cardamom Donut Holes

These may be a slightly strange flavor combination for some, but it's truly worth a taste! The flavors all meld extremely well together, the aromatic cardamom with the sweet pumpkin puree. And, has a fantastic soft cakey texture! If you've ever been missing that moist, almost crumbly taste of an old-fashioned donut on a ketogenic diet; you've come to the right place! These little donut holes are extremely rich, so 2 or 3 is enough to really hit the spot. Though, they serve as great small ...

Not Your Cavemans Chili

Not Your Cavemans Chili

When I think of chili, I think of a deep, rich, and thick sauce clinging to firm pieces of beef. Beans scattered throughout each bite, and a nice small crunch of onions and peppers as you get through the bowl. Something that warms you up on a cold winter night, and keeps you full for the rest of the evening. Something that's hearty and delicious! The ground meat portion of this recipe will add a similar texture to that of what beans would. The larger chunks of meat give a great firm texture, ...
