However, chicken thighs are a more fatty part of the chicken and when you leave the skin on and sear them in tallow, ghee or oil, you get enough fat in your dish toContinue reading “Crispy Boneless Chicken Thighs”

Now this title sounds appetizing… NOT! LOL. Nope, it didn’t to me either when I first saw it, but just as with mug cakes and all “shortcut” cooking recipes, it had to be tried and tested in my lab 😉 It turned out to be a winner! Nice and quick, only a few ingredients andContinue reading “Microwave Quick Bread”
I love soup, although I have not been a fan of the creamy kind though. I lived in New England for a while (Middletown, RI) and of course there were many occasions that the infamous Clam Chowder was served. Also, not a fan (sorry!!!). Anyway, today I am posting a recipe that has everything inContinue reading “Chicken Chowder”
This is a recipe, albeit tweaked, that I got got from one of my favorite non keto cookbooks; “Weelicious” by Catherine McCord. (The recipe has been tweaked to adhere by our low carb standards though!) I bought it as soon as it came out in 2012 (when my youngest, Charlie, was born) and have beenContinue reading “Turkey Pesto Meatballs”
The original recipe stated that you wouldn’t miss the beans at all in this recipe….. With classic and all around loved recipes like Chili I believe you always have to be very “respectful” in recreating them (#foodsnob LOL)… and they absolutely NAILED IT! This is Chili 🙂 I LOVE Chili and would hate it toContinue reading “Chili”

Bread! These taste like wheat bread! I’m not kidding… this is the closest to bread any keto recipe I have ever tried has come. In the Netherlands, where I grew up, a normal breakfast and/or lunch would often consist of a “broodje kaas” (a roll with a slice of cheese), and that’s what I hadContinue reading “Keto Rolls”
This is the ultimate “I’m having a long busy day and I won’t have time for dinner” recipe. I made this roast the other day when I planned a day out to a harvest festival with the kids.

I already have a brownie recipe posted on this site, but I didn’t want to leave this recipe out for several reasons; It’s completely flourless, it has a whole avocado in it PLUS the whole batch of batter is made in your food processor! That can’t be good you say? Wrong! These are awesome! SoContinue reading “Avocado Food processor Brownies”

This amazing veggie is prepared in only a few minutes, tastes great even without seasoning, is loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and has a low calorie content next to a high fiber one. Score! Today I usedContinue reading “Spaghetti Squash Bolognese”
I am so bummed that Starbucks doesn’t make a sugar free version of their Pumpkin Spice flavoring! Coffee is my thing, and whenever I want or need a little break I love to treat myself to a large coffee from a coffeeshop. Pumpkin is also my thing, and the two combined are coffee heaven! Anyway,Continue reading “Quick Pumpkin Spice Latte”
We’re getting ready for darker and colder nights and my favorite thing to do when that happens is to make soups and stews. This Curry is not technically one of those, but it tastes like a hybrid and it warms that belly right up. It’s also a great make ahead dish that is easily reheatedContinue reading “Coconut Chicken Curry”
Gingerbread and Speculoos got married and had a baby! That’s what these taste like, no kidding! It’s fall and I have to be careful not to overdo it with the pumpkin since I like it way more than my family does, but who can say no to pumpkin muffins, amiright? I had to tweak theContinue reading “Pumpkin Munchkins”
To be honest, I have never had a real Hushpuppy in my life… I grew up in The Netherlands and we don’t have them there. The author of this recipe says these are pretty darn close to the real thing and since she has given me TONS of delicious spot on recipes, I tend toContinue reading “Hushpuppies”
I like to make meals from scratch, but let’s face it, for most of us juggling all the things (yes, ALL lol) life does not (always) leave us with enough time to stand in the kitchen every day and create such master pieces 😉 Add virtual school and, on Thursday evenings, Hockey nights for meContinue reading “Mozzarella Pesto Pizza”
The air fryer, one of my most used appliances in a normal week (meaning, when I am not working on a themed recipe week like this one!). I use it for almost everything… better yet; I have two of them!
