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 ...

Roasting Your Own Coffee

For as much overlap as there is between keto diet culture and coffee culture, I've always been a little surprised that roasting your own coffee has never caught on in a bigger way. It's something I've been doing for about eight years, so it is very much a sustainable project, especially if your morning coffee is a key part of your day.   Here is my thesis. If you care deeply about your morning cuppa whether it be a bulletproof or "black as night" like mine, roasting your own coffee is ...

Creamed Curried Baby Greens

One of the things that I try very hard to convince everyone of on this blog is the notion of a foundational model of home cooking driven by the quality of the end results. As much as we shouldn't let what we see on Pinterest and the food media affect our self-esteem about what we put on the table at mealtime, we still do. It's easy to forget that almost everyone has staff in the form of assistants, food stylists, professional photographers, and the like. That's not to say that you can't compete ...

Freeze Dried Strawberry Greek Yogurt

Do you ever like a product so much that you are almost offended that the manufacturer itself doesn't seem to appreciate what they have? That is the sort of relationship I have with the whole milk version of Fage greek yogurt. Oh, the skim and 2% people get all sorts of flavor and size options. I'm stuck with 16 ounce containers of ...plain. Luckily, I'm never someone to shy away from taking things into his own hands. That spirit, along with a little indignation over my yogurt choices, led me to ...
