Pesto Zucchini and Squash Noodles with Shrimp and an Epic Fail

Pesto Zucchini and Squash Noodles with Shrimp and an Epic Fail

Hello all! After quite a bit of time travelling around through Florida, Virginia, and North Carolina, I have finally had some time to sit down and post something new. Despite my travelling to visit family and friends, I definitely did not stop cooking. From some Thai Peanut Chicken Lettuce Wraps with some Carrot and Pear Pickled Slaw to some Pan Seared Herb Chicken Tenderloins with Asparagus, in the past month I’ve made and ate some delicious low carb meals, as…

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!…

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

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….

Smoked Horseradish Pork Loin

*Update – I’ve gotten the hint after a few comments about people not being able to grill or smoke, so I have added alternative directions underneath the regular directions. Hello all! It is well known that I am quite the grilling aficionado, and being that it is sunny and summer, I thought I would do a little post on this smoked horseradish pork loin I whipped up over the weekend. Now, to give you all a little background on why…

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┬áthe 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…

Black and Blue Bacon Burger – Low Carb Summer Grilling

The summer is coming into full swing here in North Carolina. We definitely had a couple 90 degree days out there. Of course this means grilling season is officially here to stay.

With blue cheese on the inside and the out, as well as a nice slice of…

A Low Carb Feast For Kings

Rachel and I had some friends over for a little Memorial Day bar-b-que, and let me tell you, we had some food!!

I’ll post the full recipes shortly, but here are a few pics from the cook out. I first used the snake method of low and slow smoking for…
