Low Carb Cake – Chocolate Frosted Marble Cake

Low Carb Cake – Chocolate Frosted Marble Cake

Low carb and cake aren’t two words that you would usually see together. However, I was in the mood for something sweet a few days ago, and I thought to myself I should make a cake, so I did! Now this was my first go at making a full on cake. I know I’ve made waffles and even a couple small cookies here and there, but never an actually all out decorated cake.  I also am most certainly not a…

Low Carb Creole Jambalaya

Low Carb Creole Jambalaya

I whipped up some low carb creole shrimp and andouille sausage jambalaya this weekend, and it was delicious! A few days ago I saw a comment about someone that said something about cajuning (not a word I know) up these low carb smoked pork quesadillas I made the other day. Well this got the wheels turning in my head, and I thought why not try making some jambalaya! Now, to give a little disclaimer, I have never been to Louisiana…

Smoked Pork Low Carb Quesadilla – A Low Carb Leftover Special

Well I noted that I would show you all that it’s very possible to make another delectable dish out of something made earlier in the week. I made up this little dish out of the smoked pork from earlier in the week and turned it into a yummy quesadilla with a little blue cheese side salad. Doesn’t look like leftovers to me! What do you think? I know that pork isn’t a usual ingredient for quesadillas, but these were delicious….

New Low Carb Coconut Flour Waffles Recipe (Still 5 carbs per waffle!)

Hello low carb world! This past week I had a hankering for something that was filling, sweet, and low carb. Waffles are a definite staple and favorite in my household. I would even venture to state that they are one of my fiancees favorite breakfast items. Of course, she also loves donuts a whole lot (which may be my next recipe). I decided to try out a new variation on my browned butter coconut flour waffles recipe, and boy these…

Preparation Prevents Pounds – Low Carb Meal Planning

Preparation Prevents Pounds – Low Carb Meal Planning

Thinking ahead isn’t everyone’s strong suit. Many people probably never even give their next meal a thought. I was much like this in the past. I was also 100 lbs heavier in the past. Now you may be one of those lucky few individuals who are able to make it up on the fly and still stay in shape. I am not. I thought I would dedicate this post to explaining why meal prep is an important element to living my…

Low and Slow – Low Carb Sweet and Smoky Ribs

Low and Slow – Low Carb Sweet and Smoky Ribs

Another summer day is another grilling day in my house. We had some company coming through town, so I thought today would be a good day for me to fire up the grill (of course) and smoke up a nice rack of sweet and smoky baby back ribs. I’m certainly glad I did, and I think everyone else was too! I made up my own blend of dry rub for these ribs, which you can find at the bottom. I then…
