When I posted my Pumpkin Bread recipe last week, I had no idea how popular it would be. I knew my family loved it, but everyone has different tastes, so you just don’t ever know what will happen when you publish a new recipe. I’ve gotten tons of incredible feedback. Mostly, I’ve heard that it’s not eggy at all or dry like many keto breads. I thought I’d change it up a little and turn it into Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins. The batter is the same, but I swirled a cream cheese filling into the batter and doubled the original recipe. I love how it turned out! As I shared in the Pumpkin Bread post, any kind of recipe that I have adapted to keto/low carb is a very good replacement. However, it will never taste just like its counterpart full of white fluffy sugar and flour. Having the appropriate expectation will keep disappointment at bay. These are a really good alternative and a welcome breakfast or a sweet treat.continue reading…

My family loves football! Each week during football season when our favorite team, the Ohio State Buckeyes, plays my hubby and kids love for me to create a smorgasbord of fun game day foods. This past Saturday was a crazy busy day for a tailgate party. After being at the ballfields for my son and oldest daughter’s softball and baseball games from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm I knew I wouldn’t have a lot of time to prepare food that night so I needed an easy menu that they still considered “game day” worthy. After several suggestions, we settled on Steak Fajitas, Chicken Wings, fresh veggies, and brownies. Although I had never made Steak Fajitas before, I knew they would be super easy and budget friendly to prepare with just a few ingredients. Also, chicken wings are a very easy frugal addition to a menu that can often be a huge expense at restaurants. It also happens to be one of my kiddos most favorite game day foods.continue reading…
Looking for some Halloween Candy Alternatives to hand out this year?
With all the food allergies around – it’s nice to offer a different sort of treat. Here are some, creative and inexpensive favors that will make great Halloween Candy alternatives! Also – you might have heard of the Teal Pumpkin Project – that’s where you set out a teal pumpkin to let families know your house offers non-candy treats!
My oldest daughter asked me to make pumpkin bread yesterday. She loves my whole wheat pumpkin bread recipe but thought I might be able to create a keto/low carb friendly one. Although my kids are not 100% keto, I think she wanted me to bake something that I could enjoy as well. After a little trial and error, I think I have come up with a yummy keto/low carb pumpkin bread recipe. Now, let me set the expectation for you as I did get a little disheartened in the beginning of my keto journey when I saw recipes that said they “tasted like the real thing.” This does not taste like the kind of sugary pumpkin bread that we were all used to before we started following a keto/low carb way of life. There is not one low carb ingredient that I can substitute that tastes the same as a fluffy flour full of gluten. With that being said, this is a very very good alternative. It’s both moist and full of pumpkin flavor while being low carb, which is most important. This recipe makes 2 mini loaves. If you double it, you can make one regular sized loaf. continue reading…

I try to cook a variety of different meals and meats each week but it’s so easy to get in a rut and cook the same things over and over. While I like Pork Chops, they aren’t usually my favorite. However, this Creamy Parmesan Garlic Pork Chop recipe just might have changed my mind. It’s a one skillet meal that is ready in about twenty minutes or so. After a long day at homeschool group, it was such an easy meal and clean up was minimal. The creamy parmesan garlic sauce is absolutely amazingly rich and flavorful. I steamed fresh broccoli and made a small garden salad to eat with it for a complete meal.continue reading…
I’ve seen lots of recipes for meatballs online, but they all contain almond flour. Since my daughter is allergic to almond flour, I don’t use it in recipes that the entire family will be eating. Instead, I use coconut flour so that it is safe for her to eat as well. As a mom of four, I don’t have time to cook more than one meal at dinner. Personally, I think meatballs are so much better after simmering in a slow cooker all day. They seem to get much more tender and flavorful.Plus, anytime I have dinner taken care of early in the day I count it a win! It seems that the entire rest of my day goes so much smoother. You can serve these BBQ Mozzarella Meatballs over zoodles or with your favorite vegetable and a garden salad. It’s such a simple keto friendly/low carb meal that the entire family can enjoy.
