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: 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!

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, …
