LOW CARB BREAD

LOW CARB BREAD

  If you are doing low carb and want bread, this is as good as it gets. I’ve tried many recipes and most of them were a big fail, and others not great. This one is actually good. It’s tasty, satisfying,  and can be cut […]

TEX MEX CASSEROLE

TEX MEX CASSEROLE

  This dish makes me so happy. It has all my favourite flavours and lots of spice. It’s a low carb take of chili with corn bread. The “chili” part doesn’t have beans, but is packed with peppers and ground beef. The “corn bread” is […]

EASTER PIE

EASTER PIE

  For Easter, I was responsible for bringing dessert. I wanted to make something that felt like an Easter dessert without it being overly sweet. The result was phyllo pastry layered with orange scented ricotta, honey, rum soaked raisins, almonds, and soaked in a honey […]

ORANGE VANILLA CHEESECAKE

ORANGE VANILLA CHEESECAKE

  Other than sugar, cheesecake has lots of keto friendly ingredients. The eggs, butter, and cheese are all staples of a low carb diet. Mix in a little sweetener, and you have an everyday dessert. This cheesecake is sweet with hints of vanilla, orange, and […]

BREAKFAST BREAD

BREAKFAST BREAD

SEED & SPINACH BISCUITS

SEED & SPINACH BISCUITS

  Saturday mornings I meet up with a friend to go swimming. I usually roll out of bed and make my way there picking up a coffee and a bagel on the way. In my attempts to be healthier and lower my carb intake, I […]

CHEESY CHIVE BISCUITS

CHEESY CHIVE BISCUITS

  These are similar to my other biscuit recipes but I wanted mini ones that were cheesy. They’re not red lobster biscuits, but are pretty close. They’re also low carb and are the perfect compliment to a soup or stew. They’re also perfect on there […]

ORANGE CARDAMOM ALMOND CAKE

ORANGE CARDAMOM ALMOND CAKE

  I am so happy with this cake. It is sugar-free and low carb. Instead of sugar and flour, I used xylitol and almond flour. The cardamom, rosewater, and saffron give it a beautiful aroma with floral notes. It also tastes wonderful. It’s so light […]

CHERRY AMARETTO BROWNIES

CHERRY AMARETTO BROWNIES

  Not everything has to be made from scratch. Especially if you are not someone who enjoys baking. There are a lot of great products on the market that you can doctor-up and create something unique and delicious. My favourite is the Ghirardelli brownie mix. […]
