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,…

Juliette’s Corner – Why Jute Can’t Sit Up Yet: ANSWERED!

Now, I know what some of you are thinking.  I’ve been slacking on posts.  You’re right.  But I have an excuse!  (“Excuses are like as-tronauts!”  What? This is a food blog, why are we talking about space?)  Juliette hasn’t been sitting up properly or staying on her belly, and it reached a point where the…

Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt Mousse

My husband and I are confessed, lifelong chocoholics.  When he was deciding whether or not to do the ketogenic diet with me, the deciding factor was that I would make him this mousse, and he could eat it for breakfast if he PROMISED to watch his serving sizes.  I don’t know that he actually kept…

Orange Chili Chicken and Broccoli

They’re forecasting snow here in New Jersey, and in this house, that used to mean takeout, because momma and poppa don’t go NOWHERE in crap weather unless the house is caving in.  This will, in fact, be the first snow storm for us where we are breaking that tradition, because apparently, Chinese restaurants don’t know…

Juliette’s Corner: Kale, Blueberry, and Avocado Puree

Julie was somewhat difficult to persuade that solids could possibly be any better than a good, old-fashioned bottle.  And I get that.  It’s kinda a tall order to replace something that’s given her so much comfort and sustenance for so long — her whole life, in fact! I’ve been scratching my head (and abusing my…

Bacon, Egg, and Cheese on a Chipotle Cheddar Biscuit

Anyone who lives within a three hour radius of NYC can attest to the unequivocal necessity of a delicious bacon egg and cheese in the morning.  We thrive on these things, or variations thereof, whether we get them from drive-thru’s, Wawa convenience stores, or we make them at home, I would be willing to bet…

Fried Tomato Portabello Stacks

Last night was glorious.  I’ve been itching to start experimenting with keto-friendly breading because fried foods have always been off-limits for me on more conventional diets I’ve been on in the past.  Not that anyone out there in internet land over the age of 28 knows this feeling…. I noticed, last night, as I was…
