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 ...
Keto Mexican Coffee Eggnog
I'm not saying that there haven't been keto eggnog recipes around for a while now, because there have been and they're pretty damn good. It just seems like this holiday season, keto dieters everywhere have collectively sat up and realized just how good it is, to say nothing of being a snap to make. In sharing my Keto Mexican Coffee Eggnog, I hope to introduce you to some points of technique that will help you whether you make this recipe or formulate your own.
The type of eggnog that most ...
Instant Pot Smoked Pork Bone Broth
This Smoked Pork Bone Broth post involved the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my relatively young career as a low carb food blogger -- convincing my family to cut the meat off their ribs and not devour it like a pack of hyenas. In this case, those bones had a higher calling.
Thankfully my family, who is used to humoring my weird food projects, was happy to oblige. It wasn't that hard with my nearly fall-off-the-bone ribs. Eventually we worked our way through three racks of ribs and ...
Keto Apple Pie Margarita
When I posted my Keto Hard Apple Cider recipe a few weeks ago, while it is totally delicious on its own, I always intended for it to also be a building block for other recipes. Apples are typically such a no-no on a keto diet that once I had a way of introducing apple flavor to recipes without also adding sugar, it needed to be put to uses beyond just an apple-flavored substitute for wine. So, I did what we always do here in Southern Arizona -- made margaritas. The Keto Apple Pie Margarita was ...
Keto Hard Apple Cider
One of the questions I see the most regarding keto diets is what you can drink as far as booze. The short answer is that beer is out, hard liquor is in, and wine are sort of provisionally in. I say "provisionally" because it really comes down to the style in which they wine is made. It runs a continuum from keto-busting sweet to totally bone dry. Hard cider is much the same situation, but there are few if any options as far as "keto hard apple cider" in stores.
So, why is that? I think there ...
Keto Cranberry Kansas City BBQ Sauce
It pretty much says it all about my philosophy on food that I don't make my cranberry sauce with any cranberries at all and that I put cranberries in places most normal people would think they have no business being, like a BBQ sauce. My Keto Cranberry Kansas City BBQ Sauce spells things out loud and clear that absolutely nothing is sacred in my kitchen, but it often is unexpected and delicious.
So, what is a Kansas City BBQ sauce? Well, listen -- blood has been shed over less contentious ...
Keto Red Wine Hot Chocolate
Keto Red Wine Hot Chocolate is epitome of a great spiked winter beverage. Dark, rich, and sweet -- with a little kick in the back of your throat from the alcohol in the wine. It's also a recipe that almost didn't happen. Originally, I judged it as too gimmicky and therefore unlikely to be good despite its considerable social media curb appeal. It's sort of hard to argue with the intrinsic draw of chocolate and wine.
I try to keep a clear theme in my recipes. In other words, something has to ...
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...
