• 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).  Let’s be honest though as we all get older sometimes a lower carb version is the better option… I mean not ALWAYS but sometimes. Roasting is key…

  • Homemade Crispy Cheese Chips

    Crispy Cheese Chips are one of my favorite snacks… and they are low carb too! So Crispy There are so many options when it comes to your cheese options but when I went to the store to get the cheese slices I found a party pack of pre-sliced cheese and I grabbed it right up.  It had cheddar, havarti, colby and gouda.  I was so excited to see how each one would work. Much to my delight they all worked amazing!  All turned out super crispy just like my favorite chips. Changing it up a bit To add a little something extra to the chips I added some black pepper…

  • Air Fryer Chicken – Your Go-To Chicken

    Do you have an Air Fryer yet?  I mean everywhere I look I am seeing new recipes, new tips and tricks & people raving about their air fryer.  I resisted on getting one as I just didn’t want another small appliance taking up space, but then I started seeing everyone rave about the Air Fryer Instant Pot Lid.  And let me tell you, I am so glad I did. Better than store bought… The beauty of making a rotisserie style chicken at home is that you can season it just how you want.  You could use lemon pepper, or cajun, or just salt & pepper.  This time around I used…

  • Cheesy Garlic Chicken

    Cheesy Garlic Chicken is your new go to weeknight dinner. I love this recipe even more because it only uses a few ingredients, most of which you probably have on hand…cannot get much easier than that. Cheesy Garlic LOVE This chicken dish is SOOOO good.  The chicken is nice and tender cooked under a delicious layer of a creamy garlic mixture that gives this dish a TON of flavor. The base of the garlic goodness is cream cheese.  I used a whole brick (8 oz) of cream cheese mixed with a little sour cream and minced garlic…lots of garlic.  The fresh garlic is what makes this chicken stand out.  It…

  • Italian Sausage & Brussels Sprouts Skillet

    Italian Sausage & Brussels Sprouts skillet is a must make.  I am getting ready to jump back onto the KETO bandwagon and this will be on my food plan for sure. Skillet Meal in NO Time One of the best things about this one skillet recipe is how quick it comes together…in 30 minutes you can have dinner on the table.  The sausage cooks down and gives you just enough grease to sauté the shaved sprouts in, and it adds a TON of flavor to the dish s well.

    KETO Meatloaf is the epitome of comfort food in my book.  This dish takes me back to my childhood but with an update making it KETO and kid friendly. Mini in size…BIG in flavor I made this meatloaf in muffin pans not only because it makes it super easy but also because they are just so darn cute!!  Each little meatloaf is a little bigger than a meatball making them a fun size.  You can have a few for dinner and then a few for lunch the next day.
