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

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 ...

Keto Sansrival

Keto Sansrival

Sansrival is a Filipino classic - crispy, chewy, meringue layered with French buttercream and cashew nuts. Translates to, “without rival.” Aptly so, as this is hands down a crowd favorite.The original recipe calls for a dacquoise, a meringue made with nuts that when cooked long and slow yields a crispy wafer. The keto version, however, will not have the same texture. Instead it’s more sponge-y. Sugar’s hygroscopic, or moisture absorbing, nature lends to the crunch that sweeteners ...
