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 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 ...

Dark Chocolate Fudgsicles

Aren't summer colds the worst? I'm not entirely sure if it is that they're objectively more severe than the winter variety or it is just the injustice of being stuck inside during warm weather. They do seem to be more contagious than they are in the winter. I often can escape during the winter when someone else around me gets sick, but we are guaranteed a house full a sick people during the summer once one person contracts it. This year's version comes packed with a scratchy sore throat that ...

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 ...

Thai Coconut Curry Cauliflower Rice

In my Madras-Style Mild Curry Powder post, you first heard me discuss the idea that we don't have to re-invent the wheel when it comes to creative ways to flavor our food in the absence of carbs and commercial processing. There are ready-made flavor combinations and dishes just waiting to be adapted to the parameters of a low carbohydrate diet. For this post on Thai Coconut Curry Cauliflower Rice, we will follow the same theme but will move east across the Bay of Bengal from India to Thailand...

Dill Pickle Greek Yogurt Dip

Don't get me wrong, I like mayo. It's glorious on hot dogs, hamburgers, and in my egg salad. With cut-up vegetables, or *gasp* pork rinds, not so much. I think it is the dark eggy-ness of it. When I eat it on things with a lot of freshness or flavor pop, it just seems to take over everything and drag it down. For someone on a low carb diet who goes to great lengths to eliminate all added sugar in his diet, it is also problematic as there are some brands with a fair amount of added sugar. ...
