Homemade Chocolate Bars with Stevia (Sugar-Free, Low-Carb)

CHOCOLATE CANDY BARS ARE INEXPENSIVE TO MAKE AT HOME WITH THE ADDED BONUS OF INCLUDING YOUR FAVOURITE INGREDIENTS   I’m the kind of guy who doesn’t mind making homemade gifts for the people I love. So, I decided to make homemade low-carb chocolate bars as a surprise for Valentine’s Day to give to Mrs. CBB along with some not-so-crafty decorations that I’m sure she will laugh at. It’s the thought that counts, right? Homemade chocolate bars or other chocolate candies are not meant to look perfect because it is the imperfect that says, “I made this with Love” that matters most. What I love the best is the cost of making homemade chocolate bars vs. store-bought. Before we start this recipe for homemade sugar-free chocolate bars ….. I just want to point out that if you don’t care for sugar-free chocolate you can easily use regular chocolate chips  to make this recipe for homemade chocolate bars. Once you understand the basics of melting chocolate, own the proper tools and have the ingredients on-hand then you’ll be set to go.   Chocolate Bar Mould   To be honest if you don’t fancy the same chocolate bar mould that we use that […]

35 Minute Zoodles Bolognese (Zucchini Pasta w/Meat Sauce)

ZOODLES ARE A GREAT SUBSTITUTE FOR HIGH CARB HEAVY PASTA. TRY FOR YOURSELF, YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU DID   Today I’m sharing with you an easy recipe that you can have on the table in about 35 minutes working at a steady pace. Hear Ye! Hear Ye! I can now announce that I am the new King Zoodles Chef. Mrs. CBB said that I’ve finally mastered the art of zucchini noodles. That or she just wants me to keep cooking so she doesn’t have to. Nah, she meant it. Good-bye pasta. Thanks for many years of tummy filling goodness but we’re moving on to something far different and it’s gluten-free. We are a pasta loving family but in order to keep the carbs low we’ve started removing as much gluten as we can as well sugar but most of all, eating too much food. This Zoodles Bolognese is so good you’ll be telling yourself that it is on the weekly menu forever. Every bite is filled with tonnes of flavours from the spices. A dish like this in a restaurant could easily cost you $20 where I was able to make this entire recipe that serves 4-6 people for that […]

Ricotta Eggnotta Italian Style Deep-Dish Crustless Quiche

A DELICIOUS EGG RECIPE FILLED WITH PEAMEAL BACON, RICOTTA CHEESE AND CHIVES THAT WILL PLEASE ANY CROWD   The Ricotta Eggnotta Deep-Dish Crustless Quiche is like no other because it’s made in a spring-form pan which gives it lots of height and plenty of plate porn for your guests. When a dish looks and smells delicious you will find you end up with an empty plate almost every time. This is that dish. I’ve loved a good Quiche ever since I can remember and my mum mad them often but with a pastry crust that was flakey and buttery. What I wanted to do is break the crust and pie-slice size Quiche that is tradition and bring it to new heights. (no pun intended) ha! The second reason I wanted to make this deep-dish crustless quiche is because it is a low-carb, keto recipe that I created for the family so my wife can also enjoy it.   Melt that cheese chef   Just last week I watched a video online where a restaurant topped their nachos with fried melted cheese which gave me this crazy idea to do the same with my deep-dish crustless Quiche. The Ricotta Eggnotta is […]

Super-Fast KETO Mug Biscuit In 90 Seconds

STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND MAKE THIS OUTRAGEOUSLY DELICIOUS KETO MUG BISCUIT   You most certainly can make a microwave Keto mug biscuit in 90 seconds and the best part is you can dress up it any way you like. Mug recipes are great because you can portion control what you want to eat so you’re not itching for another slice or two. Mrs. CBB was hankering for some low-carb bread but we hadn’t made a loaf so she went without. Mrs. CBB without bread is like that mid-day chocolate high that softens stressed out employees to get them through the rest of their workday. Yes, she loves her bread but not all the carbs that comes along with traditional bread made with white flour. That’s when she asked if there was a way we could make a Keto mug biscuit in the microwave similar to the many low carb mug cakes we’ve concocted over the past two years. So like any good husband who wants to avoid the afternoon tummy rumbling carb rage I went to work creating this Keto mug biscuit for her. She helped but mostly with the eating part and I did my fair share as […]

Simple Strawberry Rhubarb Chia Seed Jam (Low-Carb and Sugar-Free)

PACKED WITH FLAVOUR AND LOADED FULL OF NUTRIENTS THIS STRAWBERRY RHUBARB CHIA SEED JAM DELIVERS   Strawberry Rhubarb Chia Seed Jam comes packed full of nutrients, vibrant red in colour, tart yet sweet and perfect on its own or used as a topping or sauce. Close your eyes right now and imagine a stack of your favourite pancakes dripping with sugar-free syrup and Strawberry Rhubarb Chia Seed Jam. Delicious right? I don’t have to imagine because we’ve tried it and love it! We’ve also made homemade ice-cream with the jam then topped it off with even more of the preserve. It’s all around easy to make and deliciously healthy. What I love about this jam is that you don’t have to slave over the stove nor do any fancy work to get it done. Essentially this is a refrigerator or freezer jam which means you can store it away and enjoy without canning. The process takes about 30 minutes from start to finish but keeping it in the refrigerator over-night is the key to its success. All these years we’ve had this amazing rhubarb growing in our back garden which we presume made its way into the ground about 20 […]
