Pumpkin Spice Crème Brulee

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 […]


Keto Frittata

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 […]

Pumpkin Spice Frappe!

It’s National Cheesecake Day!

National Cheesecake day is a day worth celebrating indeed! We love cheesecake. For Jonathan, his favorite is a plain, classic vanilla. No fuss.  David adores the Carrot Cake Cheesecake with the frosting on top. Me, I’m the pumpkin cheesecake girl, and Grace says she won’t discriminate by picking a favorite. Grab […]

Spicy Poppin’ Shrimp

The Restaurant version of this recipe uses small shrimp that are breaded and fried, but after trying it with suateed shrimp, I realize that the magic is really in the sauce and not in the breading. The sauce is simple and uses common ingredients. It is supper easy […]

low carb pate

Bacon & Liver Pâté

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 […]

90 Second Toast

90 Second Toast

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 […]

smoked turkey

David’s Famous Smoked Turkey

Here’s how to follow the 28 day guide and what you need to do NOW to prepare for September 10th. 

Celebrating Sweet G with Grandmother’s Coconut Cream Cake!

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.” 

Week Two Meal Plan, 28-day Guide

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.  

Keeping Food Logs

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 […]
