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 […]

Cheesecake Yogurt ***MAD***

This is like eating dessert for breakfast! If you like the flavor of a sour cream cheesecake, you will love this yogurt.  It still has a slight “tang” from the yogurt, but the cream cheese flavor still comes through.  I did not calculate the nuts and cinnamon on top, but you can include them if […]

Ben (Updated)

Ben is my keto hero!  He’s been on the diet since November 2011 after receiving a diagnosis of Doose Syndrome earlier that year. I remember one of the first times I took him to the grocery store after starting the diet we had to go down the “chip” aisle to find some macadamia nuts.  He […]

Basil Pesto **Method of Serving Fat**

Pesto is certainly not a new recipe or idea… however, this recipe is now in the Ketocalculator under the “fat” category! You can make a big batch of this and weigh out just a small amount to add to a keto meal.  It’s a great way to add a LOT of flavor and some fat […]

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 […]

Mya

Mya is my hero. She is the strongest person I know, with the biggest heart and the most will power. She had her first seizure on 10/31/09. At her worst, she was up to 30 seizures per day. After several months with another hospital, we decided to switch to Children’s Memorial (now Lurie Children’s). This […]

Sprinkle Birthday Cake

I wanted to re-create “Funfetti” boxed cake mix… It was always one of my favorite mixes in the cake section;) I figured out the coconut flour sprinkles right away… however… baking a coconut flour based cake proved to be much more difficult.  I experienced every problem possible… too flat, too greasy, too dry, green bottoms […]

Vanden

I am so proud of my Keto hero Vanden because he never gives up.  This diet has been challenging for the both of us to learn to cook as well as eat, but the results are worth it!  Vanden has only experienced 4 seizures since June 1st 2012 and his development has caught up greatly.  […]
