My Hot Sausage Stuffed Banana Peppers are an Italian favorite that I look forward to every summer.

Keto Pimento Cheese with Green Chiles

Keto Pimento Cheese with Green Chiles

I was in Alabama when I tried a good pimento cheese for the first time. The experience was life-changing to say the least! On top a juicy burger (no bun, please) loaded with bacon, grilled onions and peppers, it formed a glorious pool of gooey goodness that tantalized my tastebuds. It was everything. I was…

Loaded Fauxtatoes Skins

Loaded Fauxtatoes Skins | Easy Keto Snack

Originally posted Jul 10, 2013 Loaded potato skins on a keto diet? Nah, not so much. However, these loaded fauxtatoes skins are sure to satisfy that same flavor profile!

Crispy Prosciutto Chips

Crispy Prosciutto Chips

Back when I first started eating low carb, I was on a mission to find a suitable substitute for potato chips. Now, I’m really fond of my Cheesy Cheddar Crisps, but sometimes you just need a little variety. After discovering the beauty of pepperoni chips, I always wondered if the same would work for other…

Low Carb Pasta Salad

Low Carb Pasta Salad

When I was younger, pasta salad was my absolutely favorite.  My mom would make me a special batch without green peppers because I found them disgusting (and still do, to be honest). Her recipe calls for gluten-filled enriched pasta and store-bought Italian dressing.  Since I medically have to avoid grains and choose to avoid crappy vegetable…

Sausage & Sauerkraut Croquettes

Sausage and Sauerkraut Croquettes

When most people switch to a low-carb diet, they sometimes lose track of their favorite hobbies that used to involve the carb and sugar-laden foods, such as entertaining.

Maytag Blue Cheese Pork Rinds

When I visited Columbus, Ohio for the first time in 2009, I started my culinary excavation at a locally-recommended diner called Cap City.  On the outside, it looked like a very traditional run-of-the-mill diner you’d see anywhere.  On the inside, it was like being transported to a chic European bistro. Already intrigued by the surprising interior,…

Zuppa Toscana

Zuppa Toscana Soup

Coming from a large Italian family, I’ve had my fair share of delicious foods.  Pre-keto, I was all about the traditional necessities: baked ziti, crusty bread with a sweet olive oil and herb blend, and most importantly – the delicious soups. Now surprisingly enough, my favorite soup didn’t come from an old family recipe box.…

Creamy and zesty pizza dip that is topped with melted cheese and pepperoni. You won't miss the crust!

Zesty Pizza Dip

Fall is my favorite time of the year.  I love everything about it – the leaves turning colors, pumpkin flavored everything, hoodie weather, and most importantly, football season!

Caprese Baked Tomatoes

When I first started eating a low carb diet, my first and hardest craving was pizza. I was having success with making a crust out of cheese and almond meal, but it just seemed like it took too much work for me (lazy, I know). At any rate, I saw an image for Baked Tomatoes…

Creamy Herb Butter with Radishes

Give me a delicious herb butter and I’ll eat it off of anything. Seriously. It’s no secret that I am fond of Ina Garten, aka the Barefoot Contessa.  During one episode, she made a batch of delicious looking sandwiches that are filled with crispy radishes and creamy butter — apparently very popular in France. While…
