THAI SPICED PUMPKIN SOUP

ROSEMARY PARMESAN HERB MUFFINS

ROSEMARY PARMESAN HERB MUFFINS

  I’ve been testing low-carb recipes lately. If you’re someone who wants to do a low-carb diet but really misses having something like bread with your meals, then these muffins are for you. What I love most about them is how many things you can […]

MEATBALLS STUFFED WITH MOZZARELLA

MEATBALLS STUFFED WITH MOZZARELLA

  This is a great appetizer for the holidays. It takes a little work to make, but the end result is totally worth it. These can be made in advance so the day you’re entertaining you can warm them up and concentrate on other things. […]

PIZZA PIE

PIZZA PIE

  I think if you ask anyone living a low carb lifestyle what food they miss the most, I bet they will say pizza. This pizza pie is a low carb version of a deep dish pizza. The crust is crunchy and you can fill […]

CHEESY CAULIFLOWER MASH

CHEESY CAULIFLOWER MASH

  I challenge you to try this recipe. Serve it to your family but don’t tell them what it is. They will say it’s cheesy mash potatoes. This is so good, It’s just like mashed potatoes. This low carb comfort food is now a staple […]

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 […]

BREADED CHICKEN

BREADED CHICKEN

  I love breaded chicken. Whether it’s a burger, strips, nuggets, I love them all. So when I decided to try making a low carb breadcrumb I was skeptical. Could I could achieve that desirable crunch or get that tasty coating that keeps the chicken […]

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 […]

ROASTED RED PEPPERS & GOAT CHEESE SALAD WITH BASIL DRESSING

ROASTED RED PEPPERS & GOAT CHEESE SALAD WITH BASIL DRESSING

  The basil dressing makes this salad. It’s so flavourful and works well with all the other ingredients. You have the creaminess from the goat cheese, the crunch from the pine nuts, the sweetness from the roasted red peppers, and the sharpness from the onions. […]
