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 […]

grocery game monthly challenge

30 Keto Diet Staples You Will Find In Our Kitchen : The Grocery Game Challenge #5 Aug 28-Sept 3

STOCK UP ON LOW CARB ESSENTIALS WITHOUT CRUSHING YOUR GROCERY BUDGET.   You may have noticed over the past 2 years that our grocery shopping list has changed quite a bit since we’ve moved over to a keto diet. You might also have taken note that our many of our Sunday frugal recipes are low carb as well and this is because we no longer just eat what we want or classify as “healthy“. We have taken control of our eating habits and put more effort into what fuels our bodies and how we energize it each day. Related: Are you eating too much food? I’m not exclusively on a keto diet however I do follow it as much as possible as my dietary needs are different from Mrs. CBB. Coffee is a great start to the day for keto diet lovers. Many of you might be familiar with Bullet Proof Coffee and for those of you who aren’t let me tell you it’s packed full of fat! Some people have asked if the keto diet has interrupted our lean grocery budget of $265 a month for 2 adults and a toddler and it depends. Some months might be great […]

Mozzarella Stuffed Italian Turkey Meatloaf (Low Carb)

GET READY TO HIT PRINT ON THIS JUICY ITALIAN TURKEY MEATLOAF RECIPE   Mozzarella stuffed Italian turkey meatloaf tastes as good as it looks and it’s low carb, gluten-free and keto-friendly. All the wonderful elements of a classic turkey meatloaf but without the breadcrumb fillers but loaded with Salerno mozzarella which oozes gooey when baked. Just look at the photo once again…yes, it is THAT GOOD!     Characteristics of an amazing meatloaf recipe   A meatloaf recipe has to be moist, flavourful and paired up with a nice homemade sauce or gravy. If I had it my way a nice side of buttery mashed potatoes but these days we opt for something healthier such as a garden salad. These days most people are looking to cut the carbs and opt for smarter choices such as vegetables, fruits and proteins. Do you ever just have one of those days where you come home and the last thing you want to do is cook a big meal? We have them often especially with an almost 3-year-old running around the house. Although we like to use our crock-pot to ease into a quiet evening of family time there are times where we […]

Crispy Bacon Fried Lupini Beans (Low Carb Snack)

YOU HAVEN’T TRIED A DELICIOUS SNACK UNTIL YOU’VE EATEN THESE BACON FRIED LUPINI BEANS   We got this crazy idea for making Crispy Bacon Fried Lupini Beans only because we found out that Lupin Flour which is ground lupini beans is low carb. You will find some low carb recipes that now use lupin flour as opposed to almond flour or even coconut flour. We’ve had lupini beans before mainly at Christmas time when we visit Italian friends of ours. There are bowls of lupini beans on just about every food table as it’s a traditional snack. Once we found out the nutritional values for lupini beans we were sold. Are you ready for these Crispy Bacon Fried Lupini Beans? They are so good and this is my first time using them in a recipe so if I can do it, so can you. My next attempt at using lupini will be to make a lupini cake and lupini cookies once I order the lupin flour which you will learn about below.   What are lupini beans?   Lupini are ancient and mostly found in the Mediterranean in the European culture, Middle East and South America and have been available […]

The best part is that the asparagus salad is low carb and easy as pie to make. Well, easier than pie I should say. When you are hosting a party this Spring or Summer take advantage of fresh asparagus that are in abundance and fairly inexpensive to purchase. Since asparagus is stocked at the grocery stores keep an eye out on the reduced rack as you may get lucky and score a great deal on seconds.   Foraging for Asparagus   Around May, June and into July asparagus are in season in Ontario and you can find asparagus growing in many ditches along country roads where vegetable farms reside. This is the time you may find foragers out and about with their bags and a sharp knife scooping up their free produce. We’ve done this many times in the past with the family and it was quite fun. My father-in-law is a master forage ranger as he started with his parents back […]
