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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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

Having pre-prepped ingredients stored in the freezer is a major time and sanity saver! 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 […]

Dairy Free Chocolate Pudding

I saw a recipe for a chocolate pudding using tofu and I was very skeptical. As I was looking at other similar recipes, one particular brand of tofu kept popping up… Mori-Nu Silken Firm Tofu.  The reason for this is the very smooth texture. I tried the same recipe a while back with a generic […]

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 […]
