Keto KFC Twister

Keto remake of the KFC twister: crispy breaded chicken inside a soft wrap with spiced mayo, lettuce, and tomato. Instead of trying to copy the sauce they use, I use some mayo with sriracha and cream cheese. If you add the chicken fresh from the oven, the cream cheese will start to melt and slide…

Potatoes

Baked potatoes and consequently loaded potatoes (twice baked), I find are best done with russets. This is how I have always had them, but your experience may tell you otherwise. Mashed and sliced potatoes go to red and yukon gold. These are best boiled from what I have had, they mash so easily and cleanly…

How to Slice an Avocado

Avocados are dangerous to cut, due to their tough skin and slippery insides and pit. Slicing an avocado will depend on what you are using it for and how much of it you will be using. They also do not last very long at all once cut open. Even before they are cut, they go…

Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry sauce is amazing. It has a tangy and sweet taste that doesn’t cover flavors strongly. That doesn’t mean go overboard. Texture is very important for cranberry and so there is much more you can do with it. This will mainly contain ideas from premade cranberry sauce. Anything you can do with the jellied, you…

Keto Chicken Pocket

This is a remake of a food I found in the frozen section of the store (chicken melt), just waiting to be reheated. These were remarkably simple. A pita or flatbread for the outside with some slightly spicy chicken and cheese on the inside. Good for on the go, or sliced up to be used…

Tri Tip Dip

Simple homemade au jus for pairing with roast beef sandwiches. This is just a recreation of a sauce packet you can get from the store. The store bought sauce is thin and very salty, which tastes good, but is not as healthy as home made can do. To enjoy au jus, simply dip roast beef…

Personal Celebrations

This will be a post on ways you can still enjoy festivities even in small groups or alone, (using Thanksgiving as an example for the most part). For larger groups, see Here. While huge gatherings for the holidays are chaotic, they are fairly simple. The host house cooks a few of the bigger dishes (meats…

Keto Hummus

This is something that came to mind after looking at several different breading substitutes. While I have not tried it yet, nor do I plan to for a while, I think it has potential. Lupin beans look similar to chickpeas and are of the same family, but have higher protein and fiber content, meaning lower…

Why I Use Ingredients I Hate

While hate may be a little strong, it helps illustrate a point. Some ingredients change so much just from recipe to recipe, as well as from ingredient to recipe. One example I have is tomatoes. Tomatoes don’t taste good and their texture with the juice and seeds is awful to me. That being said, I…
