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…

Creamy Italian Dressing

Creamy Italian Dressing

One of the most stress parts of starting a diet is completely figuring out what foods are on/off limits.  When it comes to a low-carb, ketogenic approach, high-quality fats are stressed and sugar should be non-existent. Fast forward to the grocery store.  You decide to accompany your (bun-less) bacon cheeseburger with a simple salad and…

Keto Peanut Butter Cookies

Keto Peanut Butter Cookies

As mentioned in a previous post, I’m really not a big sweets lover. Given the choice over a delicious plate of meat and potatoes over a decadent birthday cake, I’m always going to choose the meat and potatoes. However, during the Christmas holiday season, my mother makes what I would call “the absolute best” peanut…

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. Being a foodie and my love of cooking for other people, this was simply a part of my life I wasn’t willing to part with! You can…

Gluten Free Chocolate Almond Butter Cups

Chocolate Almond Butter Cups

As a child, I remember waking up on Easter morning to the savory smell of ham baking in the oven, my siblings laughing and the rustling of candy wrappers that could be heard from rooms away. Digging through my Easter basket, I couldn’t possibly be bothered by the chocolate bunny or brightly colored marshmallow chicks.…

Paleo Barbecue Sauce

Tangy Paleo BBQ Sauce

When I think of summer, I immediately think of four things: swimming pools, boys in short shorts, fireworks and of course– backyard barbecues! Barbecue season is quickly approaching and it just wouldn’t be summer without slow-roasted meats topped with your favorite BBQ sauce. When I first started my low-carb, Paleo journey, I thought that BBQ…

Daikon Radish Fries

Crispy Daikon Fries

One of my ultimate comfort foods is a big plate of french fries topped with bacon and cheddar cheese! While I do still sometimes indulge in these (no worries, I still make everything myself without gluten/strange ingredients), I am always looking for side dishes that I can make on a more regular basis that are…

Low Carb Ketogenic Coconut Macaroons

Keto Coconut Macaroons

Every once in a while, I get a craving for something sweet. And when I say that, I really mean once in a while. One day, I was browsing my grocery store and noticed that there were some pre-packaged coconut macaroons for sale, highlighting the words, “Gluten-Free!” I took a look at the ingredient list…

Mayo made from bacon grease

Bacon Mayonnaise

Bacon grease can be used in so many different ways! While it’s awesome for sautéing veggies and frying eggs, some even even use it as a skin moisturizer. But my favorite way to use leftover fat is to make bacon mayonnaise!

Paleo style Banana Bread!

Paleo Banana Bread

Nope, I’m not dead. A lot of people have been asking where I’ve been and that they miss my posts! It is truly a great feeling that there are people that really depend on my little blog here for recipes and for being successful on their ways of eating! Over the course of my nearly…

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.…

Low Carb Pizza - Simple with no specialty ingredients!

Low Carb Pizza

When structuring a new lifestyle change, it is important to be able to still enjoy your favorite foods.  When I deny my body/brain of a food I really want, I naturally strike back, but at a three-fold.  Instead of having a grilled cheese sandwich, I would eat three. Instead of one beer, I would have…

Sweet yellow bell peppers stuffed with spicy Morrocan spiced beef is the perfect accompaniment to a cold fall night.

Spiced Moroccan Stuffed Peppers

With the changing of the seasons usually comes a change in food cravings for me.  In the past, I’ve been known to create/eat/destroy anything with pumpkin. This year is a bit different, though. Since I’ve embarked on this gluten-free and low-carb journey, that means there’s a lot of experimenting to do with some new recipes.…

lightning-bolt-fat-bombs

Keto Chocolate Fatbombs

Fat bombs are something that I have been hearing around different low carb communities for years.  It wasn’t until recently that I accidentally fell in love with them!  Now you know that I’m not a huge fan of sweets and desserts (as mentioned in my Keto Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake recipe), but these delightful bites of…

keto-reuben-dip-featured

Reuben Casserole

This recipe holds a special place in my heart. The moment I realized that I needed to make a blog was when I was consuming a delicious and bunless corned beef sandwich. When I first took a bite, I was immediately transported back to that St. Paddy’s Day. This Keto Reuben Casserole is comforting and…

Spaghetti Squash & Meatballs

Spaghetti Squash & Italian Meatballs

Growing up in an Italian-American family, Spaghetti & Meatballs was a staple in our household. Long before the days that I had discovered my gluten allergy, it was probably one of my favorite meals. But let’s be honest, what’s not to love? It’s filling and comforting – the perfect example of comfort food. When I…

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! Like any Pittsburgh Steeler’s fan, I look forward to the days when I can just hang out with my buddies, drink and eat delicious food!  The only…

Candied Bacon Sausages

Candied Bacon Sausages

My sister taught me how to make these Keto Candied Bacon Wrapped Sausages after she had made them for a family gathering. Let me tell you – they are simple and so incredibly delicious. Do you know how some people have recipes that they always make for events? Yeah. This is one of those dishes.…
