If, like me, you’ve fallen in love with making your own homemade vanilla extract, then you might also be interested in learning how to make a sugar-free Vanilla Paste. Vanilla paste can be used just like extract, but takes only a month or so to be ready to […]
In another lifetime, I was famous for my traditional peach cobbler. For over 9 years that cobbler has been but a memory. Are peaches low carb? Recently, by some twist of fate, it became apparent to me that 100 grams of peaches was about 9.5 total carbs. An […]
A friend and I were messaging when she said that her daughter wanted ice cream and she wanted an iced coffee. Her son suggested a sugar-free coffee float. And that, my friends, is where the Keto Mocha Latte Float began. Within minutes, I was texting her a picture […]
If making the perfect Chili Dog is on your mind, then I’ve got you. This chili is meant to be served over a burger or hot dog.
Spongy, soft white bread rolls that are also low carb? Yes please!
Love homemade ice cream? My Higher Protein Vanilla Ice Cream isn’t necessarily high in protein or low in fat, but when compared to most keto ice cream recipes, it is much lower in fat and higher in protein. This recipe relies on eggs and lower fat Greek yogurt […]
This Sugar-free Lavender Lemonade is perfect for spring! The natural pink flavor makes it ideal for showers and weddings.
This recipe for Sheet Pan Fajitas was first published in my book, Growing Up Keto, because it’s perfect for busy families. Not only do you simply toss all of the ingredients in a mild fajita seasoning, but you spread it in a single layer on a rimmed baking […]
David adores smoked Gouda cheese, so when I spied a Smoked Gouda Cheese dip at the deli, I brought it home to him as a treat. It was love at first bite! The ingredients list on the package was pretty simple, so I decided to DIY the recipe. […]
If you love eggnog, you’re in luck! It’s pretty easy to make keto if you keep these four things in mind. First, limit the booze as your body will burn alcohol before burning other calories. Second, treat this recipe as a dessert, which means pay attention to portions […]
Every recipe I share is one that at least one person in my family has enjoyed, and most are approved by a 3-1 majority. I would never share a recipe we don’t like, but I will admit that some are instant winners. This recipe is an instant winner! […]

Rainbow Layer Cake with Italian Meringue Buttercream This colorful, happy cake holds fond memories for our family. Grace requested a “cake with different colored layers” and “real buttercream”. Keto, of course. At the time, it felt like a tall order, but it was fun and fairly simple to […]
If you haven’t had a cobbler from a Southern kitchen in the heat of summer, then you ain’t had a cobbler. There. I said it. This is a low carb version of the Southern cobbler I’ve made for decades. One of my signature desserts. It’s the dessert that […]
Tomato pie, ahhh!!! It’s a Southern summer thang. It’s rich and decadent and it tastes like summer the way June bugs, lightning bugs and bare fee are summer. I fell in love with tomato pie when I was a carb eater. There’s likely a little of the high […]
At our house, Mr. Keto makes the wings. The entire family loves it when he smokes fresh wings on the Big Green Egg. Even though we’ve tried a lot of flavors over the years, we always come back to a classic, Parmesan Garlic Wings. We’ve made this for […]
Low fat dairy? On a keto page? You’re thinking I’ve officially lost my mind. Well…maybe. But these creamy higher protein cheesecakes are definitely not low fat, but I did manage to get the protein grams slightly higher than fat grams per serving, which is pretty exciting for anyone […]
Do you love chicken salad as much as I do? It’s incredibly versatile and often tastes better the day after it’s made. I call that food that waits for me! And food that waits is the very best kind. Whether you enjoy it as a wrap or on […]

Most people could benefit by beginning to track what they currently eat, if they don’t already. Personally, I was surprised that I was eating as much fat as I was. Liberally using butter, soft cheeses, cream cheese, olive oil, bacon fat, avocado oil, cream, and fatty meats had […]
Higher protein keto involves prioritizing protein at every meal and with snacks. Higher protein keto is not low fat. It’s still keto. The ratios tend to be something like 5% calories from carbs, 35% calories from protein, and 60% calories from fat. In practical terms, if you’re eating […]
If you’re rolling along on your keto journey, losing weight, wearing smaller clothes, and feeling good, then keep rolling right along. Don’t let anyone stop you. If you’ve been bumping along more than rolling, then you may want to consider making some tweaks to your meals. Let’s walk […]
A velvety chocolate mousse filling snuck between a crisp pecan crust and a fluffy whipped cream topping is the stuff of low carb pie dreams! If you love chocolate, this easy to make pie will easily put a smile on your face. Don’t be deterred by the multiple […]
Toddler Grace was obsessed with following daddy and helping him fix things (she still enjoys it). They were “fixing” her trike. I snapped this photo from an upstairs window, and am still moved by the sweet happiness in their faces. What you can’t see in this photo are […]
Hippocrates had it right. When I started eating meats, veggies, full fat dairy, and eggs, my health improved dramatically. I was around 270 lbs, wearing a size 24, and taking OTC and prescription pain meds.My life was limited by the pain. The physical pain of my back–limited amounts […]
I’m excited to include my Keto Dough ebook in the Keto Lifestyle 3.0 package. While you can still purchase the Keto Dough ebook for $6.99, the Keto Lifestyle 3.0 bundle is only available for the next week, and for that week the Keto Dough ebook will be part of […]

No boxes! This may be one of my LEAST popular posts. I’m okay with that. I chose these photos because I’m considering making one of these four recipes. And, it occurred to me these were all things I’d bought in the past. Cocoa roasted almonds Scones Chocolate peanut […]
Do you miss bread? Pretzels? Crackers? After losing 100 lbs on keto, I have frequently said, “Ask me if I miss bread?” And I certainly don’t miss the high carb breads that made me tired, sick, and obese. But a lot of people who eat low-carb or keto […]
Gingerbread is a cookie and peppermint mocha is a coffee, right? Well…maybe they started out that way, but life is ever-evolving, right? What if you could make gingerbread ice cream? Take a creamy, custardy ice cream base, amp up the gingerbread spices and sprinkle in some gingerbread cookie […]
I love to smell soup simmering on the stove.The flavors are melding into perfection as the meat becomes more tender. It makes a house smell like home when the soup pot is full. Soup is also practical and utilitarian. Not only is it warming in winter, but it’s […]
A Dutch baby reminds me that it’s often the little things that are most delightful. Just a few simple ingredients, takes minutes to whip up, and can be modified to accommodate different flavors—what’s not to love? The original Dutch baby I created for Keto Living Day by […]
Making and decorating gingerbread cookies is almost more fun than eating. Actually it IS more fun to make and decorate them. My low-carb Gingerbread cookies are an excellent way to keep family baking traditions without sacrificing your keto diet. My recipe suggests using hazelnut flour which is lower […]
Christmas and cheese straws were always synonymous for me. I loved the salty crunch and the slight heat from the cayenne. In fact, I loved them too much, and once ate an entire bag on the 10 minute drive home from the grocery store. That was in my […]
No matter how you slice it, a sweet potato isn’t gonna be a great keto option, especially when you want to enjoy other foods for Thanksgiving. That’s why I’m calling this recipe a substitute without any cutesy faux tato names. When it comes to taste and texture, pumpkin […]
We all love fresh turkey freshly roasted, but what can you do with the 6 lbs of meat left from the 12 lb turkey on Thanksgiving day? We have lots of tasty ideas for you that will make your family thankful for leftovers. These are favorites that sometimes use […]
While working on Growing Up Keto, we realized we had to trim down the recipes. We simply could not fit in everything we wanted to include. Among the recipes that didn’t make the cut were these adorable and tasty mini-layer cakes. They have simple ingredients and take mere […]
Hey guys! I put together a NEW shopping list for Growing Up Keto so that you can be well prepared for when you have the book in your hot little hands. If any of you who have the book already, have suggestions for things to add, I’m all […]
Kale salad?Yeah, that’s the look David gave me when he saw me creating this recipe. He doesn’t love kale. To be honest, I don’t love it raw. But I had this vision. And Diet Doctor asked me to create a Thanksgiving side. So there I was massaging the […]
Would you like the recipes for this cake and a few more? 😘 Well…recently I shared a post about all of the recipes in Growing Up Keto and I shared that we had to limit desserts. I had FOUR cake recipes and FOUR frosting recipes. And those cakes […]
Curious about the new book, Growing Up Keto, and whether you might enjoy it? We put together this “inside” view to help you get a sneak peek. One of the biggest challenges when writing is deciding content. It’s all important, right? But there is a page limit. Our […]
It’s the season y’all. Recently I realized I was running out of sweetener and cinnamon. Today, I’m low on almond flour and vanilla extract in photo (don’t worry, I’ve got another bottle waiting.) And all of that reminded me that it’s time for me to take inventory of […]
Where’s Kristie? FB won’t like this, but let’s be honest. I don’t love their platform. I haven’t loved it for some time, and I can understand why some people are limiting, or leaving, social media. One of the biggest frustrations for me is that y’all don’t see everything […]
So impressive and so easy! If you can separate an egg, and you can, then you can easily make this classic dessert. I’ll confess to being one of those who nearly always skipped the water bath. Please don’t! The texture is so much better if you let those […]
Our meal prep this weekend. Double batch of Chipotle Chicken salad (Crazy Busy Keto and website), Curried Chicken (Journey to Health) and David used the Big Green Egg to smoke a pork butt which I’ll shred and use for pulled pork tomorrow night and use the leftovers to […]

A salad! I rarely eat salads but when I do… Gotta make sure of three things 1. Keep carbs low. 2. Get adequate protein. 3. Have sufficient fat. Tasting good is a requirement too of course. So…I pulled everything out of the fridge and found Leftover pork tenderloin […]
This low carb coffee cake is simple to make in spite of the need for two mixing bowls. There’s a layer of cheesecake hidden between two layers of cake. The pecan, cinnamon, sweetener topping gives a great texture and crunch. Be sure to put the pecans on top […]
Smoked pumpkin? David thought I was nuts but when he tasted what I made, he was pleasantly surprised. See for yourself just a few of the things you can make with smoked pumpkin.
There are two recipes for pumpkin fudge here! The first uses coconut oil and the second is White Chocolate Pumpkin Fudge. Both are less than 1 carb per serving! Pumpkin Spice Fudge (version 1) 6 ounces coconut oil 4 ounces butter, salted (ghee for dairy free) ½ cup […]
My frittata helped David survive Keto—yes the man doesn’t eat eggs but he eats frittatas because I hide the eggs in stuff he does like. Baked in a large casserole, it’s easy to slice into different portions. He grabs out a portion and often eats it on the […]
When it’s not quite fall, but Pumpkin Spice is in the air, we get caught between two seasons here in North Carolina. It’s still too hot for dessert coffees, but wishful thinking has us longing for the sweaters and pumpkins and that ubiquitous Starbucks Frappuccino Pumpkin flavored sugar-laden […]

I posted this wonderful recipe on youtube way back in 2015…but I have to tell ya…it’s just as delicious today as it was back then. A Meatzza simply uses a meat crust. We use hamburger and sausage for this crust and then top with our favorite pizza toppings. […]

Nothing is better for a quick, simple, hot meal made as a stir fry. Unlike our low and slow soups, a stir fry thrives on high heat. Whether you’re starting with chicken, beef, or pork, you want to crank up the heat, add some fat and seasonings and […]
Keto Together–Meat from a can? Absolutely! Shelf stable keto meals can be hard to find, especially when you’re looking for sufficient protein.

Day 5 of #ketotogether introduces a Keto Casserole. Sweet G doesn’t love a casserole, so I started calling these ‘bakes’. Girl saw right through me! You’d think she’d be smart enough to love a one-pot-wonder like this, but she doesn’t wash the dishes and she doesn’t cook. One […]
Day 4 of #ketotogether and simple is still on the menu! If you don’t have a grill or the weather isn’t perfect for grilling, just use your oven instead. You could also choose one of the other 9 days to cook from. Days 1, 2 or 3 offer […]
If the idea of a hunk of meat for dinner doesn’t excite you, then we can’t be friends. “Hunk of meat” simply emphasizes the versatility of Day 3 of Keto Together. Pork, beef, or chicken–it really doesn’t matter what you use. If you have veggies that need using […]
Day 2 and we’re having breakfast for dinner y’all. And I don’t care if you don’t like omelets. Calling this recipe an omelet is like calling the Mona Lisa a painting. No friends, this is a masterpiece! Don’t believe me? SPECIAL NOTE: We are honored to have a […]
The fabulous Jackie Eberstein was generous to contribute this guest post to Keto Together, our 10 days of cooking through Covid-19 stay at home orders. Jackie’s words are indeed food for thought. She makes the idea of comfort food truly uncomfortable and offers options for what you can […]

French Onion Dip. Do you love it too? I’ve created two versions. One is short and simple, but may mean using a bouillon that has a few questionable ingredients. The second takes a bit longer to make but is super delicious and just as authentic tasting and has […]
Pâté??? Hear me out! This stuff is deelishus! The bacon tones down the taste of the liver depending on how much you add to the recipe. I like a little more bacon; Grace likes a little less. I also adore this made with smoked, crisp pieces of pork […]

Okay, you’ve seen 90-second bread, but hear me out. This is 90-second toast because it’s really pretty awesome toasted, but just kind of ‘meh’ straight out of the microwave. This is the absolute closest I’ve come to something like a toasted English muffin. It’s great with Creamy Skillet […]
I get asked a lot of questions about my books. Which book is best to get started? Which has the most dessert recipes or which should I recommend to my friend who wants to go keto? Well, the answers usually depend on which stage of the keto lifestyle […]

The headline grabbed my attention, and I couldn’t resist reading a news article about a 46-year-old woman who defended herself against a rabid bobcat. As she readied herself for the attack, one thought raced through her mind: I’m not going to die today. She met the wild, rabid […]

Let’s talk about cholesterol. We have so many questions that come in about the effects of keto in cholesterol levels…and we hear about so many doctors that actually warn patients away from the #ketolifestyle because they just don’t know the facts! So…let’s talk about it. Here’s the reference […]
I’ve been making this low carb stuffing for the last 5 Thanksgivings. We love the sausage, mushrooms, celery, etc., but I’ve changed out the “bread” a few times. I’ve used soul bread and cornbread. The cornbread is by far our favorite! This year, I MAY try a mix […]

It’s Halloween which can be a tough time to make good decisions when living a Keto lifestyle. Here are a few tips to not only make healthy choices for yourself but advice on how to encourage good habits for candy hungry kiddos. Get our Low Carb Chili Recipe
Makes 8 servings This very low carb chili makes 8 generous servings. Consider that there is three pounds of meat in the recipe which ensures that it is hearty and filling. One of the reasons that I’ve added so much meat is because chili can be high carb. […]
That word has popped up in at least 4 different places for me over the past week. And all in the context of food… First, there was a conversation about the upcoming holiday season and someone said, “What if someone just wants to enjoy the holiday and eat […]

Let’s look at the hype and some reliable resources to reassure our female (and perhaps our male) members that consistently eating whole, real foods like meat, full-fat dairy, and vegetables and NOT EATING processed packaged foods created in a factory, will result in personal crotch calamity.
My latest book, Keto Living Day by Day, includes a complete 4-week guide to following a ketogenic diet. We will use the book like a textbook and the guide I’m providing here like an active “class”, so that you have support every single day of the 28.
Here’s how to follow the 28 day guide and what you need to do NOW to prepare for September 10th.
When I compiled a collection of all of my Pumpkin Spice recipes, I came up with nine. Nine? That’s not an even number, so just to tidy up the list, I decided to share my Pumpkin Spice Dutch baby recipe.
When I took the first bite, I nearly cried. My eyes closed, I was transported to my Grandmother’s kitchen just as it was when it was overwhelmed by Christmas baking and cooking. It was G who pulled me back in time as she said, “Mom, is it wrong that I’m really glad that Dad doesn’t like coconut?! I really don’t want to share this!” We savored that cake, each being considerate of the other and only having a few bites over several days. As I offered her the last crumbs, she said, “This. Mom, THIS cake is what I want for my birthday.”
If you’re following along on the 28-day guide in Keto Living Day by Day, we’re starting week 2 on Monday! The first week has been GREAT fun, and I love the progress that folks have made so far. Now, I know that it’s a holiday week, so you may need to adjust this menu to fit your celebration plans.
Meal planning may or may not excite you. If it doesn’t it, I understand, and I won’t hold it against you; however, if you like having a guide to meals that are truly low carb (or ketogenic), then I think you’ll like this.
What can you accomplish in 28 days?
While I don’t love tracking my food intake, it can be a very powerful tool for troubleshooting. In fact, in my Facebook group, if you complain of a stall or of not losing weight quickly enough, you’re likely to be asked for a 5-day food journal. In my […]
