Cauliflower Hummus with Harissa Crackers

Cauliflower Hummus with Harissa Crackers

Especially when coupled with the tahini, garlic, and lemon. It won’t matter that this isn’t the real deal.Served with the hummus are these deliciously spicy ...

Mozzarella Cheese Pockets

Cheese sticks wrapped in cheese dough then rolled in pork rinds before baking in the oven. If you like melted gooey cheese then you will love this recipe.I was originally aiming for mozzarella sticks like the ones you can get at diners, but I didn't freeze the cheese before baking so they spread out. If you want to, you can freeze these for 30 minutes and then deep fry or bake for classic mozzarella sticks.I kind of like them as pockets so I decided to leave it as is. They could be ...

No reheating necessary but, if you must, a microwave will do. Tender artichoke petals is a good ...

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, ...
