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…

Chicken Cacciatore Lasagna

Back in the day, when mom and I subscribed to that low-fat, high protein life, one of our go-to recipes was chicken cacciatore.  I still love it.  And now that I’m on the ketogenic diet, it’s not that I CAN’T have it, I can, but I would have to have a small helping of it…

Smokey Chicken Spaghetti Squash Pancit

I have never been to the Philippines, or anywhere else in Asia for that matter, but from what I understand, it is home to a people after my own heart, because they looove them some noodles.  In fact, the vermicelli traditionally used in pancit supposedly symbolizes long life and good health (See that?! These people have SYMBOLS…

Creamy Chicken Zoodle Soup

Lately, I’ve been DYING for a good, hot bowl of chicken noodle soup.  Here in south Jersey, the weather this time of year has the habit of being cold, but with legitimately NO redeeming winter qualities like a picturesque, white, sparkling blanket of snow.  It shouldn’t even be physically possible for unfrozen precipitation to fall here….
