Let’s Catch UP!

Time. Flies. I never intended on not posting recipes for this long! Life has a funny way of taking over, especially when epilepsy and keto are in the drivers seat.  Here’s what has been happening over the past few months… I got to go to Disneyland on my birthday! I even ran into another keto […]

Baked Pork Buns

I had leftover pork loin and another keto cookie experiment I did recently turned out extra “bread like” which did not work well for cookies! I was thinking about how I could use the bread quality to my advantage and steamed pork buns popped into my head.  I thought it would work perfectly and it […]

Peanut Noodle Salad

I LOVE peanut sauce, and I could eat this everyday! I’m sure there are kids out there that would appreciate a salad like this, but I created this recipe with older teenagers and adults in mind.  I hope you all enjoy!  Here is a link to the veggie spiral slicer I used to cut the […]

Cuban Picadillo

Cuban Picadillo is one of my husbands favorite meals.  It’s also a great way to include olives in a main dish.  My kids prefer canned green olives over jarred, but I am the opposite.  I think the jar olives bring a lot more flavor to the recipe since they have a more intense, briny flavor. […]

Cooking Chicken

This is a great way to cook chicken so the flavor and texture after thawing do not taste like leftovers.  By cooking chicken using this method, it will remain soft, you can avoid using added fat during the cooking process, it […]

Spinach & Flax Microwave Muffin

You can find the complete recipe at The Charlie Foundation’s ketogenic diet recipe section. I have a great quick and easy breakfast for you… Charlotte has been enjoying this muffin for the past few weeks and it turns out great every time. It is also great for school lunch since it does not contain nuts. I […]

Cod Bites

This recipes follows the same process for my Chicken Nuggets in The Keto Cookbook. The overall process seems to work well for evenly incorporating the ingredients, holding the fat, and making a nugget that can be picked up by little hands. The final product is also a good option for kids first learning how to […]

Chopped Cabbage Salad

We have a restaurant here called “The Veggie Grill”. They serve giant salads made with kale, cabbage and other healthy ingredients… I made this one day when we ate there, the salad in the brightly colored bowl made Charlotte feel like she was eating right off the menu.  She finished the whole thing before we […]
