Turmeric Ginger Lemonade πŸ‹ {keto | low carb}

Anti-inflammatory turmeric makes a surprisingly mellow partner to its botanical cousin ginger in this off-beat but delicious keto Turmeric Ginger Lemonade that we're going to drink all the way into this summer. πŸ‹β˜€οΈβ›± If Life Gives You Lemons, Make (Keto) Turmeric Ginger Lemonade πŸ‹ The transition for me to keto was a surprisingly easy one when it came to various food categories that I needed to give up. I liked beer but didn't love it. Nor was I a big bread or pasta eater. I ...

Keto Cinnamon Roll Smoothie 🍩πŸ₯› {low carb | sugar free}

Kid approved! My Keto Cinnamon Roll Smoothie has all the flavors you love from a delicious bakery cinnamon roll warm from the oven, complete with pecans. We had to force our toddler to come up for air when we let him have a taste that turned into a little more than that. Keto Cinnamon Roll Smoothie: The Killer App For Swerve Brown? Until the recent release of Swerve Brown, I typically would just add regular old molasses to white erythritol at a ratio of 1 tablespoon of molasses to 1 cup ...

Dark Chocolate Keto Macadamia Brittle 🍫πŸͺ

We knew that this keto macadamia brittle was destined to be a holiday season classic around here at first bite. It's a taste combination that is pure magic -- keto toffee, roasted macadamias, and ultra dark chocolate. A Keto Classic Christmas CookieΒ πŸŽ„πŸͺ The new status of "classic" in our house ultimately comes down to one thing -- replay value. Like all of you, we are quite busy and try to work from our pantry rather than make unplanned one-off trips to the grocery store. This Keto ...

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 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 ...

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 isΒ 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 ...

Espresso BBQ Pork Ribs

Do we all get to the point in our lives where we look ourselves in the mirror and see that we've done all the things we've sworn we wouldn't? I'm pretty sure that I am there. I'll never buy a truck. (Did it.) I'll never listen to country music. (Did it and liked some ofΒ it.) I'll never, ever, ever get an electric smoker. I mean, those things are basically cheating. Right? BBQ is ultimately about heat control. It was one thing to spend time fiddling with a charcoal or gas fired ...
