Moisture: The Mortal Enemy Of Transcendant Mashed Cauliflower πŸ’§ The main place where people go wrong with their mashed cauliflower comes down to the water content of the vegetable. It's where a lot of the loose, mealy textures that are so off-putting to people originate from. There's really only one remedy for that, and that's ...

Keto Shamrock Smoothie

Every year I wish that St. Patrick's Day came in June, when our enormous whiskey barrel planter of mint is in full swing. Mint is more than a way of life here, it's job security. My wife *loves* anything mint, with bonus points given to dishes made with our real mint. Since I always strive to feature things here that my family and I actually would want to eat, the idea for my Keto Shamrock Smoothie was born, despite the obvious problem of mint sourcing in the middle of March. I generally ...

Keto Sous Vide Yogurt

I'll admit, I am food gadget junkie. You name it, I've probably experimented with it. Instant Pot, Blendtec, an Iwatani torch, several smokers (including an electric smoker I typically use), and an immersion circulator (sous vide cooker). I generally use a new gadget to make everything I can imagine and then relegate it to my shelf to only be used for the things I deem it truly the best at. My immersion circulators had been relegated to use in cooking sausage until I recently developed this ...

Raspberry Cocoa Nibs Yogurt Parfait

Valentine's Day comes at a really unwelcome time of the year for someone who spends a lot of time thinking about the pursuit of good health. No matter what I do during the holiday season, I always end up fighting a cold, letting my carbs float up, and generally celebrating a little too much with friends and family. I had it beaten this year, though. I encountered all the typical slowdowns from holiday obstacles and managed to still build up a head of steam by the time 2018 rolled around. I ...
