Keto Cranberry Sauce

The story of how I ended up developing my Keto Cranberry Sauce is not one where I set out to create a keto-fied cranberry sauce. I have an instinctual skepticism of "substitute" foods on low carb diets. It's not really a matter of dogma, I think they can occasionally be good. It's just difficult to do. Copies of iconic originals are generally doomed to failure. You only have to look at the amount of "fathead pizza dough" recipes to see that there is a bit of an obsession in the keto commun...

Restaurant-Style Margaritas

When I started to piece together my recipe for Keto Restaurant-Style Margaritas, I started by asking myself, "What is the lime all about?" I have a basic philosophical difference on this question with virtually every margarita recipe I see online. If you spent a lot of time reading margarita recipes, you'd think it was face puckering acidity and not its flavor and scent essence. We have lime flavored candy and baked goodies of all kinds, both keto and not. Are they inedibly acidic or do they ...

Thai Iced Tea

Thai Iced Tea is a great example of a drink that so perfectly reflects its origins that it is hard to imagine it coming from anywhere else. In a lot of ways, it is a bit of a kissing cousin to the Vietnamese Iced Coffee I posted a couple of weeks ago. The formula of strongly flavored caffeinated beverage + sweetener + tropical climate friendly shelf-stable dairy is hard to go wrong with. It's also similar to Vietnamese Iced Coffee in that it is a little surprising to me that it hasn't caught ...

Vietnamese Iced Coffee

For as coffee obsessed as we all are, it's astonishing that Vietnamese iced coffee has not caught on in a more substantial way. All of the key components are there for it to be a smash hit in the western hemisphere, and yet it hasn't. I love it enough that I created my Keto Sweetened Condensed Coconut Milk with it in mind in order to be able to enjoy it on my keto diet. To their credit, keto and low carb dieters do seem to be more open to trying food that is outside the mainstream. I think ...

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 ...
