• 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…

  • Chicken Enchilada Soup

It is all about the swirl… To make the swirl perfect you start with a brownie layer.  Next comes a layer of cheesecake and then you finish it with the rest of the brownie.  Then comes the swirl, you gotta love a good swirl.  I…

  • KETO Double Chocolate Cookies

    I have a few weaknesses in my world.  I find it hard to pass up a good glass of rose on a warm summer day, I find it very hard to say no to fishing and I find it near impossible to say no to chocolate.  Since starting my KETO lifestyle I have had to become very creative with my chocolate cravings, and these cookies are a staple for me. Chocolate, please These cookies are loaded with chocolate yumminess.  They have cocoa powder and dark chocolate, lots of dark chocolate.  For 20 cookies you use 3 oz of dark chocolate… in other words that is a WHOLE chocolate bar.  …

  • Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole (KETO Friendly)

    I don’t know about you but I love a good casserole on a cold night.  Now I know a lot of people love a good stew or soup but for me I am a casserole girl and this KETO friendly Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole was AMAZING! Loaded with flavor This casserole is loaded with tons and tons of flavor.  It all starts with seasoning the chicken with your favorite all purpose seasoning.  I love this seasoning because it is course not overly salty (and there are no carbs in it) but any seasoning blend will work.   I also make sure and season the veggies before I roast them.  This…

  • 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 Pumpkin Muffins

    Muffins are my weakness…especially pumpkin muffins.  One of my biggest fears when I went on KETO was I would have to give up my muffins, I mean they are normally not low carb.  Thankfully that fear was put to rest with these AMAZING KETO Pumpkin Muffins. The Swirl is EVERYTHING It is no secret that I am all about anything and everything pumpkin spice.  As much as I love a good plain pumpkin muffin to make these a little extra special I added a cream cheese swirl to the top.  Isn’t just about anything better with a little cream cheese swirl? I kept it super simple with just cream cheese,…
