• Grilled Summer Veggies

    I am still all in on the summer veggies that are everywhere right now and so to celebrate them I heated up to grill to let them shine. It is still summer  Y’all I know I am so ready for cooler weather (& pumpkin spice everything) but one of the best summer things happening right now are the veggies.  There are some amazing veggies happening at the farmer’s markets and grocery stores. The zucchini is amazing, the squash is just so good, then onions are the perfect sweetness, broccolini, asparagus everywhere & the corn… y’all THE CORN!  PS… more corn recipes coming, I cannot get enough. Summer Lovin & Everything…

  • KETO Broccoli & Cauli Casserole

    This KETO Broccoli and Cauli Casserole is hands down my most favorite side I have made since on my KETO journey.  I am a HUGE fan of broccoli and I am becoming a big fan of cauliflower so bringing the 2 together is perfect! Load it Up One the first side dishes I made when I started my KETO path was my Loaded Cauliflower Casserole.  It is still one of my favorites and I make it often, but this Broccoli and Cauliflower Casserole is definately my new go to.   To amp it up a bit I used sour cream, ranch seasoning and mayo.  This combo adds a creaminess to…

  • Skillet Brussels Sprouts and Bacon

    Skillet Brussels Sprouts and Bacon are the perfect quick side for dinner tonight.  Literally can be ready in 20 minutes! KETO baby! I love this side not only because it is Brussels Sprouts (which I LOVE) but it is also KETO friendly, oh yeah and there is bacon.  I mean I am not sure it can get any better than sprouts, bacon, butter and super quick and easy. PS… The flavor is AMAZING! One pan and done I love when a dish is made all in one pan, and this time was all about the skillet.  First you fry up the cut up bacon and then quick sauté the sprouts…

  • Jalapeno & Cilantro Coleslaw

    Truth time…I have never been a fan of coleslaw.  I can actually count on one hand the number of times I have had coleslaw.  When my Godmother said she was going to make some I was not super excited to say the least.  Well… that all changed the minute I tasted it.  Jalapeño & Cilantro Coleslaw is now one of my most favorite summer sides!   It is all about the prep When SandyJones, my Godmother, said she was going to make coleslaw I just figured we would buy a bag of slaw and go from there…well I was WRONG.  She bought a head of cabbage and cut that bad boy…

  • KETO Loaded Fried “Rice”

    I have been craving Chinese food A LOT lately.  My typical go to is a loaded fried rice, I just love all the flavors and textures together in each bite.  On my KETO journey a traditional fried rice is not going to work but this KETO Loaded Fried Rice is perfection! Making it KETO friendly Obviously, as I said above, a traditional fried rice would not work on a KETO friendly menu, so to make it KETO friendly I am using cauliflower rice.  It has a very similar texture to traditional rice but with just a few carbs.  I also love it because it cooks up SUPER fast and will…

  • KETO Cauliflower Risotto

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE risotto.  I love how decadent, rich and full of flavor it is.  Traditional risotto (like this recipe) is not KETO friendly but when you use cauliflower rice it becomes VERY KETO friendly.   One skillet is all you need The beauty of risotto is that it is typically made all on one pan.  This makes it a perfect side dish for a busy weeknight or lazy weekend.   This time around I went with a simple parmesan risotto but if you wanted to add in some mushrooms or bacon you would cook them in the skillet before you add in the cauliflower rice.  This way the…

  • Pimento Cheese Spread

    A MUST MAKE (& it is KETO friendly) Pimento cheese is very special to me. My MeeMaw always made the most amazing pimento cheese.  She always had it for us every time we came to the farm.It was always so rich and creamy.  Maybe I love it it is because she made it or maybe it is the cheese but whatever it is I DO SO LOVE IT!   To make this favorite even better it is KETO/Low Carb friendly.  Not only is it a favorite but I can enjoy it anytime I want while sticking to my KETO lifestyle.  Now that is a WIN WIN! A Master’s Tradition Pimento cheese is also special because it is one…

  • Loaded Cauliflower Casserole

    Ok it is official I am a LOVER of Cauliflower.  I love this  Chicken and Cauliflower Casserole and the Mexican Cauliflower Rice  but this loaded casserole is my FAVORITE! Roasting is key There are a ton of loaded cauliflower casseroles on pinterest and they all sound amazing but for me cauliflower is at its best when it is roasted.  I love the little bits of charred cauliflower with the cheese and bacon in this casserole.  The extra step of roasting adds another layer of flavor this already delicious casserole.  Bacon, please A loaded casserole would not be loaded without the addition of bacon.  Right?  I mean the best loaded baked…

  • Keto Mexican Cauliflower Rice

    Mexican food is my go to.  I love chips and quest, enchiladas, fajitas, quesadillas, guacamole…all of it.  Since I have started my KETO journey it has been a priority of mine to find yummy alternatives to fill my Mexican cravings and this Cauliflower Rice is perfect. A new way to rice Everywhere you look cauliflower rice is being talked about.  People are using it in all sorts of recipes, some of which I cannot wait to try (so be on the look out).  My first time to use cauliflower rice was in this amazing casserole and now I am obsessed with the mexican style side.  It brings all the best…

  • Roasted Cauliflower Mash

    This Roasted Cauliflower Mash has quickly become one of my most favorite sides.  Growing up mashed potatoes were a staple on our table.  My mom loved them and my grandmother loved them so anytime we could have them we would.  Whether they were just the traditional recipe or something a little extra special like these Garlic Mashed Potatoes, it didn’t matter we loved them all and now I love this cauliflower version (trust me I cannot believe I just said that out loud). Roasting is key To really amp up the flavor in this Cauliflower Mash I roasted the cauliflower prior to mashing it.  Roasting it really helps to add…
