Fried Brussels Sprouts

These shaved fried Brussels Sprouts are soooo crispy and delicious! Getting these just right was a labor of love… I mean that. We LOVE eating Brussels Sprouts!! The Secrets of Crunchy Fried Brussels Sprouts After much trial & error, we discovered that when using a home fryer, having the brussel sprouts warmed and NOT chilled made a big difference in the finished result. In commercial fryers, this likely isn’t a problem. But, in home fryers we found the oil temp dropped considerably when using still chilled sprouts. Another tip is to make sure your sprouts are thoroughly dry. We washed …

Keto Tex-Mex Liver Casserole

We created this keto casserole recipe as a way to get more nutrient-packed liver into our diet. We wanted a recipe that tasted amazing but that also hid liver’s strange texture. Why should you eat liver? Uhhm because it is amazing for you. Gram for gram, liver is one of the most nutrient packed foods on the planet.

Let me save you some time …

Keto Salami Roll Ups

These keto salami roll ups are easy to make and soooo tasty! I should have called these “disappearing keto salami roll ups” because they don’t last long around our home. To make things easier, soften your cream cheese either by leaving it out on the counter for a few hours or warming it in the microwave. When purchasing salami, ask about the ingredients and avoid salami with sugar near the beginning of the ingredients list. If you ask, your deli should help you find a lower sugar option. You will find sugar in most processed meats as it’s used as …

Homemade Sugar Free Amaretto Recipe

This recipe for sugar free amaretto tastes just like the real thing. You can easily make this a non-alcoholic version by replacing the vodka with 1 cup of water. I’ve been avoiding alcohol recently and have been making all my favorite holiday drinks non-alcoholic instead. This way, I get the flavor and ‘treat’ of a special holiday drink without the detrimental effects alcohol tends to have on my body. I learned recently that alcohol increases estrogen by 300% (I think for 24 hours) AND reduces testosterone… That really got me thinking about how crappy I feel when I have a …
