Low Carb Bread – The Only One You Will Need (Gluten-Free)

CUE THE BUTTER AND SUGAR-FREE JAM IT SMELLS LIKE LOW CARB BREAD   You’ve finally found a bread low in carbs and you’re not sure how to make it or whether you’ve got all the ingredients. I know it can happen but it won’t with this simple no-knead, low carb bread recipe that I’m SO excited to share with everyone. Get ready to watch the butter drip from thin slices of this low carb bread toasted to perfection. We refuse to pay huge amounts of money to have low carb breads delivered via online grocery shopping from a specialty website in Canada, so we made our own for far less. Rejoice bread lovers and set aside those lettuce leaves you’ve used as low carb bread alternatives and get ready to indulge your tummy with crispy toast and butter, sandwiches of all types and even chunky croutons!   Creating a low carb bread recipe   I know it sounds daft but Mrs. CBB and I have created loaves of this low carb bread for about 3 weeks now. Although we suffered and had some fails where the bread tasted like egg or was heavy as a rock we didn’t give up […]

Low Carb Baked Stuffed Zucchini Egg Roll

Wow your guests with this simple to make low carb baked stuffed zucchini egg roll that takes no time at all to prepare.   It’s time to harvest zucchini and many of you might find that you have an abundance of it since it grows so beautifully in Ontario. Organic produce is best when you can grow it yourself but if you don’t have the option visit a local organic farm or shop the grocery store. Some of the best zucchini recipes such as my low carb baked stuffed zucchini egg roll boast simple ingredients such as eggs, parmigiano cheese, fresh chives, Asiago and sliced ham or Mortadella. If you’re not a fan of the deli meat you can leave it out for a simple, delicious baked stuffed zucchini egg roll that’s perfect for low carb or keto fans.   Is zucchini a fruit or vegetable?   I’ve been asked this a few times so let’s break it down for those who are curious.  What I found out was interesting because like most people I thought zucchini was a vegetable when in fact it’s a fruit. This is probably why it tastes so good in either baked goods or savoury […]

Extra Juicy Chicken Avocado Burger (Low-Carb)

This Is Not Your Ordinary Chicken Burger Recipe. It’s The Best, The Juiciest, The Easiest Burger You’ll Ever Make.   The Chicken Avocado Burger is probably one of the juiciest burgers we make in the CBB house because of a secret ingredient and grilling technique that you must know about. I’m a huge fan of the beef burger and I have secrets up my sleeve to create the perfect beef burger however every once in a while I like a different protein like turkey or chicken in place of beef. Although beef prices have slowly been coming down in Canada it’s still cheaper to find chicken and turkey mince for a fraction of the cost. I can get 2lbs of chicken mince for $12 where beef would cost me $21. The price difference is hefty for anyone on a budget but what you can create with a wonderful mince is by far the best part of all. Keep in mind when you are grocery shopping that buying a 1lb pack of mince that will make 4 large burgers such as this chicken avocado burger recipe that it becomes relatively inexpensive compared to eating out at a restaurant. Back a few […]

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups (Low-Carb, Sugar-Free)

HOMEMADE SUGAR-FREE PEANUT BUTTER CUPS THAT SATISFY   You’re looking at a dark chocolate peanut butter cup recipe that is so good you can’t even tell they are a low-carb, sugar-free treat. If you enjoy a low-carb lifestyle and are craving something sweet these chocolate peanut butter cups will cure all. I don’t always eat low-carb and it was hard for me to stop at eating just one of these beauties which are similar to Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups that you can buy at just about every shop. I’m not even a huge peanut butter fan as I didn’t grow up on it like my wife did but when you mix it with chocolate something magical seems to happen. Ya, you know what I mean. My wife and I made these about 3 weeks ago now after she was in serious need of fulfilling her sweet tooth after dinner. Over Christmas we make a chocolate peanut butter ball recipe which is famous with just about anyone we’ve fed them to. We took that concept and created the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups but we made them in large size muffin liners re-create the Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup. A nice chocolate […]

Cauliflower Mash Cottage Pie (Low Carb)

AN EASY DINNER THAT HITS THE SPOT   The hot new low carb substitute for mashed potatoes is cauliflower. Cauliflower mash is buttery, creamy and delicious plus you can hardly tell that it’s not mashed potatoes especially if you’re trying to fool fussy eaters. Since cauliflower has come down in price from over $6 a head down to a reasonable $2.99 each or 2/$5.00 it’s worth experimenting once again. One of my favourite cauliflower recipes is my baked cauliflower with cheese as a side dish to roast beef or any other protein.   How to make cauliflower mash   Creating cauliflower mash is very easy so don’t let any of the many names fool you as they are all the same thing: Smashed cauliflower Mashed cauliflower Cauliflower puree Cauliflower mashed potatoes (there is nothing potato about this recipe but some people need to call it mashed potatoes to help describe what it is that you will be eating). How long should you boil the cauliflower? I make sure to chop my cauliflower into small florets so they cook faster. You’re going to mash it all up anyways so it doesn’t really matter at this point. The key is to keep […]

Cauliflower Rice & Broccoli Stir-Fry with Sausage (Low-Carb)

REPLACE WHITE RICE WITH CAULIFLOWER RICE   This easy to make cauliflower rice recipe will blow your taste-buds away and I’m not joking. Cauliflower rice is the new mashed potato and versions of this dish are getting rave reviews all over the world especially from low-carb eaters who quit eating rice. Mrs.CBB is a rice quitter. I was a big skeptic when Mrs. CBB kept telling me you could turn cauliflower into mashed cauliflower which tasted just like mashed potatoes but better. I gave it a try last year and didn’t mind it at all although I’m a potato lover at heart coming from the UK where we ate lots of potatoes growing up. There’s nothing quite like a Sunday roast dinner with mashed potatoes, gravy, veg and Yorkshire pudding. Mrs. CBB was all fired-up to make this cauliflower rice likely because new recipes are exciting when you are limited with what you can eat. Armed with our kitchen-tools, a pot and cheese grater away we went. With the addition of cumin and turmeric along with Frank’s Red Hot sauce this cauliflower rice dish came together beautifully. Not only was the colour vibrant but it looks as delicious as the […]

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Pancakes (Low-Carb, Gluten-Free)

ADD THESE CREAM CHEESE PANCAKES TO YOUR BREAKFAST MENU   I’ve created my version of low-carb cream cheese pancakes and they taste delicious for a quick breakfast on the run. Lately I’ve been talking about my wife being on a low-carb diet to help get rid of some weight she gained during her pregnancy. As an avid runner she would like to get back into the gym and back to the active lifestyle she once had. Part of her inspiration comes from the popular Atkins Diet that has proven successful for so many men and women around the world. You only have to look at photos and read stories on social media sites to see how the Atkins Diet has changed lives. The most important part I like to remind my wife about is that eating should be part of a “lifestyle” and not something you do just because you think you have to do it. I’ve read all that I can about the Atkins Diet over the past few weeks including Atkins recipes so I could help my wife prepare or create her meals. Although she only went through the Atkins induction stage for 2 weeks to jump-start her […]
