I couldn't do it... I just couldn't wait until Thanksgiving to have delicious, buttery turkey!
Fortunately I was able to find turkey breast tenderloin. This came out absolutely perfect! Nice and crisp on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside, and a wonderful buttery flavor. Just like a real Thanksgiving turkey, only better!
It's cold outside, and few things sound as good as warm, gooey mac & cheese.
So I decided to stop fighting temptation and have my mac & cheese, just slightly different. Cauliflower makes an awesome substitute for noodles (as if anyone didn't know already), and the gooey, homemade cheese sauce couldn't be more delicious.
This more than satisfied my mac and cheese craving, but it didn't do anything about the cold...
One of the few "bad" foods that still tempts me to this day is a spicy chicken sandwich from Chick-fil-a...
These chicken tenders are almost spot on in terms of flavor, without the bread of course! Just enough crunch, the perfect amount of heat, and soooo tender and juicy. Not only are these a great low-carb option, they are low calorie too! So go ahead and double up... or triple.. or eat all six servings. I'm not here to judge!
I love tacos, but I get sick of having the same old thing all the time.
You may have already seen my Taco Pizza recipe in my early days, but this is even better! It's a simple, delicious recipe that captures all the best flavors of a taco. Serve with all your favorite taco toppings and you may never go back to boring old tacos again!
I love cheese and bacon, and I'm constantly seeking different ways incorporate them into my diet.
This Parmesan Bacon Chicken is one of the best I've done so far! Fried chicken breast smothered with crispy bacon and parmesan cheese. This is a delicious, low carb recipe that will definitely find its way into my regular meal rotation!
If you think these are too big to be called bites, you've clearly never met me...
Whether it takes one, two, or ten bites, you will fall in love with this recipe. Yummy pepperoni folded up with the all the sauce, spice, and cheese flavors that make pizza so damn good. Give these a try and you may never eat another pizza crust (keto or otherwise) again!
Muffins were a daily thing for me 140 pounds ago. It was nothing to put down two or three muffins in a sitting, and I'm talking BIG muffins.
My quest to recreate one of my all-time favorites has led me to the best muffins I've made so far, these Primal Blueberry Muffins. The texture of the muffin itself is nearly identical to "normal" muffins, and the blueberries and honey give it a perfect amount of sweetness!
Try these and, dare I say it, I guarantee you won't be disappointed. One of my favorite original recipes, and one of the best tasting things that's ever come out of my kitchen!
Delicious brownies with wonderful banana and nutty flavors. These make the perfect dessert or snack, and they're wonderful for pre-workout energy, too! No gluten, no grain, no bullshit. Just yummy brownies that will satisfy your sweet tooth without any guilt!
Juicy pork tenderloin wrapped in crispy bacon... I don't feel like I need to say anything else.
But I will... This recipe couldn't be easier. Season a pork tenderloin, wrap it in bacon, pop it in the oven, and that's about it. Perfect for busy people and families, or for anyone who likes bacon! And who doesn't like bacon?
Those damn girl scouts came around the other day and got me craving cookies...
So I went to work in the kitchen and made one of my all-time favorites, the thumbprint cookie! All natural mixed berry jam sweetened with honey and plopped in the middle of a yummy almond flour cookie. Give these a try and you'll never answer the door for another cookie slinging girl scout again!
