Recipe: Courtney Luna’s Carnivore-Keto Dinner Roll

I decided to try this today, but instead made a mini-loaf in my 3×5 glass loaf pan. I doubled the recipe that is linked here and, of course, I didn’t make it exactly as she created it: I added about a tsp of sour cream with about ½ tsp of baking powder. It turned out …

Quick Chicken Wraps

I came home HUNGRY and wanted something NOW! This was my answer. And definitely will be the answer in the future! I like to keep chicken or turkey deli meat when I can find a clean brand, and use them for “noodles” or layers or wraps or other things. This time I wrapped a couple …

KETO: Sunday is PIZZA Day!

At least, when Pete and I are home on Sunday we have pizza; most Sundays we pick our grandkids up, take them to church, then out to lunch, and I don’t eat again once we come home. But today we’re home, and I’m really loving this pizza. I always try a little bit different type …

Some Things Just Hit The Spot!

Though I eat a predominantly animal-based diet, I do enjoy a couple of keto days each week (and even an occasional “day off”). The last few days I’ve been wanting cabbage so today I picked up a package of cole slaw mix as I was in no shape to do all the work of dealing …

Cooking: Animal-Based Snickerdoodlers

I recently bought a whole pork belly with the skin on, and cut it into approx. 1# squares. To prepare them, I roast one in the AFO, wrapped in parchment and then foil, skin-side-up, at 325°F, until done. (This depends on the side of the square, the thickness, etc.) I then separate the skin from …

Cooking: Cordon Bleu Lasagna

OK, this isn’t technically a lasagna, though it is layered…and it isn’t technically a chicken cordon bleu, though it has a similar profile…but what it IS, is delicious! In a small round baking dish that I’d sprayed to prevent sticking, I laid down a couple of thin slices of deli chicken…then some diced ham…then some …

Now THIS is Something Good: Chicken Melt Pizza

Sundays have typically been pizza day for Pete & I. But when we’re taking the grands to church, we also take them out for lunch afterward, and then don’t have our pizza. Today, however, the kids had other plans and I couldn’t have gotten to church anyway so we had our pizza day. Pete has …

Cooking: Dec. 18, 2023 – TOAST!

TOAST I have always loved me some toast…just like my Gram used to make it for me, fried in butter! Gram grew up in a creamery eating things like bowls of sour cream, fresh butter, the super-rich top from the cottage cheese…yeah! She knew how to eat! Anyway, toast isn’t something that I’ve eaten very …

Cooking: Dec. 16, 2023 – Cabbage and Onion Casserole

CABBAGE AND ONION CASSEROLE This is something that we like to eat, though I won’t be eating it today. Pete has a Christmas party with one of his amateur radio clubs and I made this for his dish to pass. (I had originally planned on going also but I feel like I’m getting a cold.) …

Cooking: Dec 8, 2023 – Beef Brisket with Cauliflower Mash

As I’d shared previously, I recently bought a 6.75# brisket. I’ve never bought or cooked brisket before. But I do remember how other people I’ve known have done it…the only pan I have that would fit it is aluminum, but since I don’t use aluminum where it would come into contact with, or leech into, …
