Low Carb Pumpkin Spice Nut Cereal / Granola

Low Carb Pumpkin Spice Nut Cereal / Granola

Fall is in the air and pumpkin spice is everywhere! Pumpkin pie, pumpkin spiced coffee, pumpkin spiced candles, pumpkin spice is a big part of fall, and I thought I would jump on the pumpkin spice band wagon this week and throw together a pumpkin spice nut “cereal!” By combing it with my candying technique I used on my Candied Pecans these are the perfect crunchy and sweet bite to have in the morning. Cereal is most definitely NOT low…

Crock Pot BBQ Rib Tips and Cauliflower Mash

Crock Pot BBQ Rib Tips and Cauliflower Mash

Hey all. Although Fall isn’t quite here yet in North Carolina, I thought I’d pull out the old crock pot and try out something new. Barbecue pork rib tips and cauliflower mash! Crock pots are awesome. The whole idea of just throwing ingredients in, setting it, and forgetting it is probably one of the best things out there. This is especially true for those that have busy days and not enough time to spend working on a meal in the…

How To Make Stuffed Spinach Margherita Chicken

How To Make Stuffed Spinach Margherita Chicken

So a few days ago we were on our wonderful trip to the Florida Keys and Key west, which I’ll probably create a post on the great food we ate, and one evening we ordered in a pizza from a local mom and pops shop located by Mallory Square (awesome place to see the southernmost sunset in the United States). Pizza is obviously not low carb, but we were on vacation and the place delivered to our bed and breakfast!…

How to Make Low Carb Cayenne Candied Pecans

Hey guys! I’ve loved working with my new dehydrator and making some delicious Zucchini Squash Chips and some hearty Beef Jerky Made 3 Ways, but I decided to switch gears for this next post and go for making some delicious little sweet and spicy pecans! I don’t know about you guys, but I love honey roasted peanuts, candied nuts, and all their different variants. Peanuts, pecans, almonds, and everything in between, I think nuts are great. I even enjoy the…

Presto Dehydro Review and Zucchini Squash Chips – Low Carb Snacking Made Easy

Hello all! It’s been a busy week for me since 4th of July weekend and making up those pretty awesome (if I do say so myself) Low Carb Cheesecakes, so sorry for not posting sooner.

Low Carb Cheesecake – NY Style Patriotic Red, White, and Blue Cheesecake

In honor of our wonderful Independence Day, I thought that I would try my hand at making a cheesecake and decorating it with some fresh fruit in order to make it red, white, and blue. I have actually made a low carb cheesecake before that turned out great, but I did a slightly different recipe this time around. Rae and I had some delicious New York Style Ricotta cheesecake a while ago, and I have dreamed and thought about that…
