Welcome to KetoCook

In 2007 my life changed forever when my daughter, Charlotte received a definitive diagnosis of Dravet’s Syndrome, and my infant son JT, was diagnosed with Hirschsprung’s Disease within the same week. In 2010, Charlotte began treatment with a medically prescribed ketogenic diet and experienced her first seizure free day in over 5 years. My passion for cooking and experimenting in the kitchen was quickly put to use figuring out how to make the high ratio recipes her diet required. I am the author of “The Keto Cookbook” and “The Modified Keto Cookbook”, both of which are designed specifically for medically supervised ketogenic therapies. KetoCook is my personal blog documenting our ketogenic recipes, helpful tips and tools, and Charlotte’s now decade long journey using keto to manage Dravet’s Syndrome. I hope that you find this site useful for your keto journey!

My Work

The Charlie Foundation

Since 2012 I have been volunteering at the Charlie Foundation for Ketogenic Therapies. I develop and photograph the recipes for their website, travel to conferences for speaking and recipe demonstrations, and manage their social media outlets.

other projects

Functional Formularies

My keto recipes and photos are featured in a free eBook that uses Functional Formularies Keto Peptides as the base for each recipe. Keto Peptides is a 100% organic, whole foods based ketogenic feeding tube formula with a 2.43:1 ketogenic ratio. I can’t recommend this product enough if you have tube feeding or puree oral feeding needs!

Poliquin Group

If you are interested in a keto lifestyle and not here for medically supervised ketogenic therapies, you will find my recipes in “The Keto Diet Handbook” helpful! There are about 2 weeks worth of low ratio recipes to help you on your fitness journey. A portion of the proceeds go to the Charlie Foundation!

KetoVie Café

KetoVie Café is a family of low-carbohydrate convenient ketogenic friendly foods which may be incorporated into the daily meals and snacks of individuals following the spectrum of ketogenic diets. I created the recipes for several of their products including, Cinnamon Donut Delights, Cheddar Dough, Pizza Petites, and more!

Keto M+

More information coming in 2021! KetoM+ is an exciting start up company founded by one of my best keto mom friends, Sybille Kraft Bellamy. The website is in French, English will be available soon. Sybille developed KetoM+ for her 19 year old son, Max who lives with Angelman Syndrome. KetoM+ will provide significant nutritional benefit to medically fragile and highly sensitive individuals.

Private Consulting

I am available for private consulting on a wide range of projects. I have experience in keto recipe development for both personal needs and commercial development. I photograph all my recipes and do not use deceptive food styling techniques. What you see is what you get! I regularly attend epilepsy related conferences and I love doing cooking demonstrations. During the Covid-19 pandemic, I also participated in a variety of virtual webinars and conferences. KetoCook is not just a blog, but also my business name. Please contact me if you have a project in mind.




  1. Dawn’s The Modified Keto Cookbook is terrific! It helped us get my daughter on the Modified Diet. We use the cookbook everyday. My daughter loves to look at the beautiful pictures and pick out her meals and treats. Must have for the Modified Keto Diet! Thanks Dawn!

  2. I received The Keto Cookbook from my husband for Christmas (after I bought it for myself :)). This book is my “go to”. It’s been so hard finding 4:1 recipes. Thank you all!

  3. My 9-year-old daughter, Autumn ,loves spending time browsing this website and trying the recipes that are listed. You guys are all awesome!

  4. I am not sure what a MAD recipe is, but we have been using a software program that we enter the food in, to get the right ration (ketocalculator). It’s a pain in the butt, but that way it shows how many grams of fat. 400 Calories is a good number for us, but we are using a lower ratio cuz it seems that as long as his blood ketones are around 1.4 he doesn’t have seizures. Smiles. I think I will get the book just because it looks awesome and I can modify things to his ratio – and the pictures are pretty 🙂

    • MAD stands for Modified Atkins Diet, which would be around your ratio of 1.5:1. The recipes in the book are all the way up at 4:1 and will include nearly 3.5 times MORE fat than what you are already calculating! I really am not trying to dissuade you from buying the book, I just wanted you to understand what you are getting. You are very lucky to be able to have seizure control with the low ratio, I hope that you never have to go to the higher ratios!

  5. I never knew about this cookbook or this site. I am really excited. We (meaning my 11 year old son) have been on the diet for 6 years. 1.5:1 ratio at this point – I am excited to order the cookbook. Question – I see the recipes posted show the carbs and protein – does the book recipes show the fats also?

    • If you are doing MAD recipes, I would not buy the book just to be honest! All the recipes are 4:1 ratio and about 400 calories. It does however include the carb and protein. I am making an effort to post low ratio recipes, so hopefully those will be helpful for you!

  6. All I want to say is you ladies have made this keto life soooo doable and I thank you so much. I love your recipes — they are so good and I always know I can look in the book or at the site, put it thru the calculator and I have a great meal for my 14 y/o boy. God bless you all!–Sassy Betts
