Okay, so…I might be obsessed ❤️❤️❤️ this spring with Starbucks Pink Drink! Only, my obsession is actually with the KETO version you make yourself in your kitchen! Now mind you, this can be ordered in the store as well but only with careful planning! You see the problem is that Starbucks stores loves sugar, and they like to make their drinks with plenty of the sweet stuff! But us KETO folks know that sugar = carbs and other yucky things we want to avoid. Here is my way of making this delicious drink at home! If you want to read about how I order in the store, I’ve added that below.
What’s wrong with this title? How can we call it Mac & Cheese when there is nothing even remotely resembling Macaroni in it? This is the ongoing argument between my husband John, and I. Now, while part of me agrees with him, the part that grew up on homemade, crispy topped, giant casserole dishes of ooey, gooey, ACTUAL macaroni…there’s also the Keto/LCHF/Banting goddess that resides in my brain gently reminding me that cauliflower actually is similar to macaroni.

You’re on the sofa, snuggled up with your love, and a soft blanket, watching a movie…suddenly, you have a craving for something sweet, but you know you can’t have the ice cream or the oreos….the carbs will TOTALLY throw your body out of ketosis, and destroy your hard work and progress.

These mug cakes popping up all over the place are great! I mean really….one or two minutes to a ready to eat cake? That’s amazing! But…sometimes they can be dry or disappointing.
Not this one. This one is moist, rich and decadent! With a ganache style topping. I’d go so far as to say…it’s POSH! And at 12 carbs per serving, that’s a fraction of the carbs in a standard piece of chocolate cake. Continue reading
My old friend.
Keto living doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to your favorite things, it just means you have to alter them a little. Continue reading
Well…anytime you see the word CHOCOLATE…you know carbs are going to be involved somehow. However, it is possible to keep those carbs to a minimum and still satisfy your sweet tooth and your craving for chocolate.
No. You can not have a Snickers bar, or a Reeses Peanut butter cup or even a Peppermint Patty. But Lindt Supreme Dark 90% Excellence Bar is your friend. Melted and mixed with a little stevia or xylitol it is just as sweet as milk chocolate. Continue reading
Now matter how hard I have tried, no matter what changes in ingredients I have made, no matter what what what….I have YET to find any type of Keto bread recipe that is actually like normal bread. I have made DOZENS of recipes….and I’ve found a few that come close. But always….always….there is something not right. Something that only flour and yeast can give you. Be it a spongy egg texture….or a too strong almond or coconut flour taste. Always there is something not quite bread like.
