Daddy’s Chocolate Birthday Cake

It’s my husband’s birthday tonight, so I’m going to try to make this fairly quick.  I got the base recipes for these from two other bloggers: Preheat at 350 and Low Carb Maven. But, like always, I made some tweaks to get what I needed from them.  This cake was fabulous, and tasted honestly better than…

Perfectly Crispy Chicken Wings with Parmesan Garlic Butter Sauce

The quintessential bar food, wings, is something that reminds me a lot of working at the cabinet factory when I lived in Upstate NY.  It was one of my favorite jobs I have EVER had, and one of the few I’ve held outside the culinary industry.  I think what made it so awesome for me was…

Baked Cauliflower “Mac” and Cheese

This has to be one of my all-time keto favorite foods now.  I am not even exaggerating.  Not only is it super cool looking because I made it with purple cauliflower, but it reminds me so much of my mom’s mac-and-cheese I grew up with.  Listen.  I know a lot of keto followers don’t like…

Juliette’s Corner: Orange, Sweet Potato, and Almond Pudding

Oh yes, folks, Juliette’s corner is here again, this time bringing you a lovely recipe for the paleo-preferring, health-conscious, tiny baby diva (or dude) in your life! My kids don’t follow a strict keto diet, but I do feed them whole, unprocessed foods. They eat a lot of color, and when I do Jute’s purees…

Bruschetta Chicken with Spinach Stuffed Portobello

The recipe list on this looks pretty overwhelming, but the actual process is actually super quick and easy. Well, when I was slapping this little diddy together last night,  it actually kinda felt like slacking.  I really didn’t see it turning into a blog post (believe it or not, not ALL our recipes do).  Once…

Chili Lime Shrimp: A Toddler’s Tale

I’m proud to announce that, finally, my little girl is old enough (and actually INTERESTED enough) to help mommy in the kitchen! … And by that, I mean you’ll begin to see a marked trend in our posts of more streamlined processes (read: more powdered spices and less knife chopping, since my 19 month old…

Stuffed Meatballs with Bacon and Parmesan Broccoli

Today, my husband, Steve, and I were pretty out of sorts.  I woke up at about 5 am with a panic attack (you know how it is, worrying about things you legitimately can do NOTHING about) and felt off for the rest of the day.  I was grumpy, which caused Steve to become grumpy.  Then…

Chicken Pot Pie

One of my favorite winter and fall dishes in the non-keto world is Chicken Pot Pie.  We have an amish market around here that makes STUNNING variations of this using these fantastic hand-rolled noodles, and that variety is one I have yet to keto-ize.  But I did decide to keto-ize the more traditional, Marie Calendar’s…

Chicken Kiev with Braised Baby Bok Choy

I’ll be honest, this was not dinner last night.  I’ve been slackin’ on posting on time.  I don’t mean to, but I’ve been busy with Jute trying to get her back on track.  So now, I’m trying to wake up early to pound out some of these recipes QUIETLY before the girls wake up!  Oh,…
