Low Carb Chili with a Kick

Low Carb Chili with a Kick

I've been trying to find a good chili recipe over the last few months, and I've finally found one worth posting. It's got a bit of carbs in it, but the taste makes it well worth it.It's very filling, very tasty, and gives you satiety for hours to come. It's a bit spicy, so if you are not into that sort of thing, feel free to sub out the tomatoes with jalapeno for just tomatoes.Once you have finished the "cooking" process in the slow cooker, the chili is still a bit watery from the tomato ...

White Chocolate Bark With A Twist

White Chocolate Bark With A Twist

I've never been a big fan of the flavor of coconut (I know, I know), so fat bombs have never held much appeal to me. Then I discovered that coconut butter (also called coconut cream) has less of that coconut taste. To make things even better, I discovered cacao butter. Cacao butter is the fat extracted from the cacao been. It smells like chocolate, but is an off white color.As soon as I started working with it, I realized this would be my ticket to making white chocolate. Because of the ...

Tangy Low Carb Tartar Sauce

Tangy Low Carb Tartar Sauce

Who doesn't love a good tartar sauce to go on their favorite fish? I used to be intimidated by making sauces from scratch, until I realized how easy they are to make. One of the things I like about this recipe is that it's a fairly small batch. With my homemade mayo always on hand, it only takes a few minutes to put this together. If you can do it a few hours ahead of time, all the better as it gives the flavors time to meld.makes 1/2 cup The Preparation½ cup mayonnaise 1 ...

Low Carb Crispy Fried Chicken

Low Carb Crispy Fried Chicken

Remember those Cheddar and Bacon BBQ Meatballs that I made the other day? Well, I had leftover pork rinds from crushing them up - so I decided that I would make some fried chicken with it.Surprisingly (well, I had my suspicions anyway) it turned out really awesome! It's a great breading for fried chicken, it holds together and sticks, and tastes fantastic.My one quip about this, is to make sure that you don't use a food processor to crush up the pork rinds. I used a rolling pin to ...

Cheesy Cheese Pizza Crust Pizza

Cheesy Cheese Pizza Crust Pizza

I found this recipe on a low carb site and decided to try it out for myself. It looked like it might work, but I definitely had my doubts. I mean a cheese pizza crust made out of cream cheese? Seemed farfetched.In reality? This cheesy cheese pizza crust actually turned out pretty awesome. Granted, when it's hot, it doesn't hold it's form so great. But when you let it cool down and solidify a bit, it makes a great pizza crust!It might be a little bit garlic-y for your taste, so if ...

I've been making a lot of sweets lately, and I am starting to get tired of them. Weird huh? I guess I have no sweet tooth anymore, I much prefer the savory side of things.I wanted to make something different, and stumbled on a recipe for some spicy cookies. Sounded good to me, as I know chocolate and spice can pair up really well together - let's just say these turned out great. I was really pleased with them, despite my recent grudges with coconut flour. The Preparation¾ cup coconut ...

Zesty Keto Italian Dressing

Zesty Keto Italian Dressing

This recipe is very similar to my honey vinaigrette recipe. In fact, I just add the herb mix that I keep on hand to the honey vinaigrette if I already have that dressing made. Also, like the honey vinaigrette, this recipe develops its flavor over time. For this reason, I recommend you make it a day or two in advance. But like all of the recipes in our condiment section, it's still delicious even without waiting!I figure if I'm going to get all of those herbs out, I might as well make up a ...
