Kohlrabi French Fries

Yes, you read that right. Keto french fries, and no, they're not potatoes. Everyone who has ever switched to a keto lifestyle has kryptonite foods that you miss periodically despite conquering general carb cravings. Like a lot of people, mine was McDonald's french fries. In the past, I've been known to make multiple stops to assemble the perfect fast food meal. Fries from McDonald's, burgers from In-N-Out, milkshakes and deep fried cheddar cheese curds from Culver's. You can't say I ...

Dorito Dust Microwave Pork Rinds

Bacon Burnt Ends

My little boy is a pretty lucky kid. He ate at more world-ranked BBQ joints before the age of one than most people do in their whole lives, and at some of those more than once. He spends most of his time while I am on the grill or smoker with his nose pressed up against the patio door glass. He's a kid who loves his 'cue. Unsurprisingly, he also loves bacon (and now my Bacon Burnt Ends) and eats them with glee and an expression on his mug that we've come to jokingly call "bacon face". Given ...
