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…

Parties and Holidays

One of the traditions I’ve enjoyed in my family for New Years Eve is the way we do food. We start in the late afternoon into the evening cooking finger foods with all sorts of snacks as a buffet. We have: BBQ pork, veggie platter with dips, mini corn dogs, jalapeno poppers, bagel bites, and…

Spices and To Taste

So many recipes I’ve seen, online and on TV, use the phrase “to taste”. To me, this is a terrible statement for aspiring chefs. You don’t lick raw chicken to see if it’s seasoned correctly. It’s also really hard to taste boiling soups without taking forever to let it cool while still getting a good…

Red Sauce, But Different

Creamy alternative to red sauce for topping noodles and more. I let this simmer for between 20 and 30 minutes, stirring lots to keep it from sticking to the pan and burning. Because I was planning on putting it over spaghetti squash instead of regular noodles, I wanted it to be thicker. If you have…

Micros and Macros

Micros and macros are important when it comes to your body, however each person is different so there is no blanket one size fits all. I have not done much research into this topic, so I don’t know how much of something is good for you and how much is bad. You don’t lose anything…
