Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower Wings

Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower Wings

Cauliflower wings seem to be all the rage right now - and for a good reason! They are great for vegetarians, crispy, crunchy, and naturally low-carb! One of my favorite kinds is garlic Parmesan.There are many ways to cook this. You could roast the cauliflower for some added crunch before coating it in the sauce, or bake them in the sauce. I chose to bake them so the cauliflower could absorb the flavors of this cheesy sauce. If you want extra crispiness, you can broil the "wings" after ...

Braised Pork Belly Noodles

Braised Pork Belly Noodles

There is nothing more comforting than a bowl of hot noodles and this dish is umami-packed without the guilt of wheat!We are using kelp noodles. They are clear, thin, almost glass-like noodles. Kelp is a seaweed that is rich in iodine. They are technically not noodles - think of it as a sea vegetable that is fat-free, gluten-free, and very low in carbohydrates. Because it looks like noodles, you may use it anywhere you would use actual noodles, think hot broths and stir-fries! Kelp ...

Toffee Nut Cake Donuts

Toffee Nut Cake Donuts

I have been seeing beautiful donut creations all over Instagram lately and it’s been inspiring me to make some ornate donuts that are keto friendly! I am a firm believer that food should look as good as it tastes.  I’ve been on a toffee nut kick so I decided to make a simple vanilla cake donut.  Then I decorated it with sweet and salty toffee nuts, and a healthy dose of low-carb dark chocolate coating. I added a touch of coconut because it’s pretty and it tastes good. It’s a win-win! But the ...

Cajun Salmon Cakes

Cajun Salmon Cakes

Some days dinner seems like a daunting task, with busy schedules and not much time to cook or plan meals in advance. This recipe for Cajun Salmon Cakes is a regular in our rotation for those busy nights when we haven’t really thought ahead about what to make. They come together quickly using ingredients that are staples in most keto pantries.I like to use spicy pork rinds to enhance the Cajun flavor of these cakes, but if you don’t like things too spicy then regular pork rinds work just ...

Baked Brie with a Keto Crust

Baked Brie with a Keto Crust

One of my favorite cheeses is baked brie. A while ago a friend had a party, and one of the appetizers was a baked brie wrapped in phyllo dough. It looked delicious, so I knew I had to make a keto version with cheesy dough.For this recipe, I also added in some bacon bits and a few tablespoons of chopped, sauteed mushrooms, which took this baked brie to the next level. You don’t have to use both of those though; it would still be incredibly delicious with caramelized onions and pancetta, ...

Caesar Salad Bacon Baskets

Caesar Salad Bacon Baskets

Crisp bacon baskets stuffed with a quick Caesar salad. This fun lunch option is a great way to switch things up. When you fold these to take a bite, you've essentially created Caesar salad tacos - and there's no judgment here on that.These baskets are savory overload. The bacon, Parmesan, and Caesar dressing combine salt and umami. The touch of tomato is not traditional for a Caesar but brings a welcome element of freshness to each bite.I mention this in this again in the steps, but ...

Keto Dill Pickle Soup

Keto Dill Pickle Soup

I have never made such a quick and straightforward soup, until this dill pickle soup. It’s incredibly easy and tastes fantastic. The best part of this is if you let it cool, it tastes exactly like McDonald’s ‘Big Mac’ sauce and would be great on a burgerless burger.This recipe takes about 15 minutes to make, yet it’s great for the long winter nights in front of the fire! I used xanthan gum to thicken the soup...and I found that mixing it with olive oil before the soup has a better ...

Keto Flan

Keto Flan

Custard is a new favorite of mine, and I can’t believe how EASY it is to make! There are different ways to make it too. Adding whole eggs to a custard base will make it hold its form… If you just use egg yolks, it will have the consistency of pudding, which is excellent for a creme brulee.Today, I will be making a flan, which will have a firm and robust custard that will hold its shape outside a ramekin. We will also be creating a caramel sauce with it that will become the top and most ...

Five Minute Marinated Feta & Sun-dried Tomato Salad

Five Minute Marinated Feta & Sun-dried Tomato Salad

In just five minutes and five steps, you can have a simple keto lunch salad that is bursting with flavor!This salad came together because one of my favorite snacks or small dinners is the marinated feta and olives from the salad bar at my local grocery store. That idea paired with some nutrient-packed spring ...
