There's a flavor combination unlike any other. One that sparks tang, sweetness and saltiness on your tastebuds. The Italians cracked the code on the ultimate combo: Caprese. Juicy tomatoes, sour balsamic vinegar, and sweet-and-earthy basil. Those three ingredients alone can invoke a carnival of happiness in your mouth. I've been in love with Caprese salad… Continue reading Strawberry, Chicken & Basil Salad
It's been awhile since I've made a casserole. Though they're one of my favorite ways to make meals, casseroles don't really scream keto. All the recipes in old-timey cookbooks call for tons of carbs--like potatoes---or oodles of noodles. Finding a good keto casserole can truly become a chore. I have been able to make up… Continue reading Pesto Caprese Chicken Casserole
I sure miss sandwiches. Grilled cheese, meatball subs...give me all the sandwiches. Sure, I make that keto mug bread every so often, but it's not the same. I love crusty bread sandwiches and subs. God, I miss carbs. The main way I turn sandwiches into keto-fied version is making lettuce wraps. I'm not pick when… Continue reading California Club Wraps
A classic Italian salad beefed up to an entree. Marinate chicken with balsamic vinegar, basil and mustard and then grill. Toss in mozzarella pearls, cherry tomatoes and avocado for an added punch!

I mean, seriously. Can you think of something that wouldn't taste good stuffed into a pepper? Ice cream, probably. I don't think ice… Continue reading Lasagna Stuffed Peppers

We roadtripped to Montana to meet with my family in Great Falls, traveled to Havre for my uncle's wedding, then… Continue reading Lemon Basil Pasta Salad
I have to get something off my chest: I loathe melons. Watermelon and honeydew. Gross. I'd rather eat a handful of rocks than those two fruits. And don't even get me started on cantaloupe; that stuff was truly sent to earth by the devil. Cantaloupe has always been on my relatively short 'Do Not Eat'… Continue reading Peach Berry Summer Fruit Salad
