Coconut Key Lime Pie Martini

I got my start in developing recipes the same place that a lot of food bloggers do -- wanting to make something my friends and family would enjoy. Developed as a drink I wanted those close to me to be able to enjoy at our wedding, my Coconut Key Lime Pie Martini began life this way. My wife and I have a personal circle of loved ones that are very much an "eat, drink, and be merry" crowd. Many of our memories of those people and places are interwoven with the tastes and smells of those good ...

Espresso Keto BBQ Rub

One of the really nice things about Swerve (affiliate) is its heat stability, making it great for things like baking. I'm not really sure what it never struck me to try it in BBQ rub recipes that would ordinarily call for sugar, like this Espresso Keto BBQ Rub. This is a loose adaptation of a rib rub recipe I have used for about five years now. As you're all going to find out, I am a little bit mad about coffee, so it sort of stands to reason that my coffee mania would bleed through into my ...

Firecracker Cake Batter Fat Bombs

At my core, I am a BBQ pitmaster, which is why a recipe like "Firecracker Cake Batter Fat Bombs" coming out of my kitchen is a little odd in concept. I like burning things and cooking with fire. I've been known to blow things up and singe eyebrows. You would not typically expect to see me with a pastry bag in my hand. My idea of making dessert is caramelizing sugar on a creme brûlée with my Iwatani blowtorch (affiliate) mounted on top of what amounts to a hairspray can full of butane. I'm ...

Dorito Dust Microwave Pork Rinds

Like a lot of people who adopt a ketogenic/low carb lifestyle, I struggle a little bit with the total dearth of delicious snack food. This coupled with the typical increased salt intake needs when eating low carb make for some brutal snack food cravings. The typical solution to that is pork rinds. The problem is they are terrible. Stale and often rancid, they're usually worst than just enduring your cravings. The solution -- microwave pork rinds. I honestly can't say that I miss most of the ...

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 ...

Texas Keto BBQ Sauce

I'm a big believer in going for the gold if you are going to do something at all. Since this is a heavily meat and bbq-centric low carb recipe blog, I'm going to combine all of the big hot-button topics that make BBQ fans and low carb dieters lose their minds: keto BBQ sauce, portion-controlled sugar, artificial sweeteners, and Splenda. Some people just want to watch the world burn. I want to establish something right out of the gate. It's basically impossible to create a sauce that anyone ...
