Book Review: The Everyday Ketogenic Kitchen

Are any of you big "South Park" fans? There's a classic and now-famous episode called "Simpsons Already Did It" (S6E7) whose theme is basically that no matter what plotline for the show you could think of, the long-running prime time cartoon "The Simpsons" already did it. It's tough stepping into a domain where the greats have been working for a long time. When it comes to the work of Carolyn Ketchum, that motif also runs through the minds of low carb food bloggers. Through her peerless low ...

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.

Well, that is technically true, but also sort of misleading. They don't ...

Smoke Roasted Ribeye

People and places change.  Smell, taste, and sound are always the same. It's like playing an old record. Some things stay the same no matter what, and that's comforting. My Smoke Roasted Ribeye is one of those recipes that arose from the attempted recreation of a memory. ...

Reverse-Smoked Oven Beef Brisket

There is a saying that you can't really understand the fundamental assumptions of your own culture until you spend a little time outside of it. I don't think I ever really understood that until I spent a week getting blank stares from supermarket clerks in Edmonton, Alberta when I asked if they carried whole beef brisket. Alberta is famous for its beef, but these friendly Canadians don't know what brisket is? What gives, Canucks? ...and that was only the beginning of my problems. It was my ...
