Creamy Avocado Taco Dip Surprise (Keto)

THE BEST PART OF THIS PARTY DIP IS THE SURPRISE AT THE END Creamy avocado taco dip surprise probably has you wondering what on earth I’m talking about but trust me when I say the you will be happy to find out. This avocado taco dip is so easy to make and you’ll have it ready in minutes. Taco Dip with Avocado anyone? Yes Please!! This is more than your average taco dip…it’s the best dip you will ever make. Who doesn’t like to dip? I’m a dipper and by that I mean (not skinny dipper) I like sauces and dips especially when there is a huge tray of vegetables, crackers, nachos, pita chips and anything else that warrants dip on it. Seasonal flavours, ingredients and spices are important when eating as is colour and texture. With spring dancing on our shoulders and summer just around the corner it’s time to think new party recipes including appetizers to keep guests going until the BBQ gets fired-up. We all know that once the nice weather is upon us invites to parties, picnics, birthday’s and so on ramp up. This means that having some fun, fast, inexpensive recipes that you can whip […]

Crunchy Pan-Fried Parmesan Crusted Hard-Boiled Eggs (Low-Carb) (Gluten-Free)

HARD-BOILED EGGS LIKE YOU’VE NEVER TASTED BEFORE   YES you have to try this. These are perfect snacks for holidays, birthday’s or any celebrating including Super Bowl where you just want to grab, dip and get it in your tummy. In our house we don’t just hard boil one or two eggs at a time. We make hard-boiled eggs by the dozen and use them for egg salad sandwiches, snacks and now we will add this to our low carb snacks list. Hard boiled eggs aren’t just for breakfast especially when you follow a keto diet also known as low-carb diet like Mrs.CBB does. I enjoy it in moderation as I’m not fully involved with this lifestyle like Mrs. CBB is. For the most part I end up eating the same foods to cut down on costs but on occasion I go my route. You know I just crave carbs after a while especially when my aim isn’t to give them up.   We’re a low carb family   One thing I won’t pass up is eating eggs any way I can get them, except raw. This recipe for pan-fried Parmesan hard-boiled eggs was a fluke to be honest. While […]

Maple Bourbon Pecan Roasted Almonds (Low-Carb) (Sugar-Free)

THE SMELL OF ROASTED ALMONDS AND HEALTH BENEFITS ALONE ARE WORTH THE COSTS.   Almonds are the new Super Food along with just about every other nut on the market according to packaging at the grocery store. Why? Nuts are full of nutrients and come packed with plenty of health benefits. Almonds also known by the Indian name “Badam” and are packed full of nutrients including vitamin E which is great for your hair, skin, digestive track and cholesterol levels. Years ago Mrs. CBB and I went into an Indian store in Brampton and purchased a bottle of Almond oil to use on her hair and skin. It’s amazing how  lovely and soft it made her hair. I suggested that she try almond oil only because I’ve been to India a couple of times and almond oil is used everywhere for beauty and cooking. Consumers are flocking to the coconut oil section for the same reason and more. Every time I read a label in the health and beauty aisle that a product has a nut oil I laugh because they are so expensive. Cut the middle guy out and buy the real deal. We have two large jugs of […]

Crispy Cheesy Cauliflower Hash Browns – Low Carb

  DITCH THE HIGH CARB POTATOES FOR THESE FILLING LOW CARB CAULIFLOWER HASH BROWNS.   These Crispy Cheesy Cauliflower hash browns will satisfy your potato craving and perfect as part of a low carb breakfast or brunch with scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon and avocado slices. If you’re looking for a low carb cauliflower hash brown recipe that is grain-free and gluten-free this is a wonderful healthy recipe that will satisfy your tummy. I don’t exclusively eat a low carb diet but when I create some of these low carb recipes I have to admit they are darn good. Just lately I find that I’m going in for seconds and thirds and my wife who seems to catch me tells me that I must be changing my ways. These days we hardly eat bread, pasta, potatoes or anything too high carb in our house which is a good thing because too many carbs can lead to excess weight gain. In keeping with our new way of eating in the CBB house (at least for my wife) I work hard to create alternative healthy low carb recipes that she can enjoy. Mrs. CBB told me that these cheesy cauliflower hash browns hit […]

Guilt-Free Crispy Deep-Fried Pickles (Low-Carb)

LOW-CARB SNACK TIME DOESN’T GET ANY EASIER THAN THESE CRUSTED DILL PICKLE CHIPS.   This is the recipe for deep-fried pickles that you don’t want to turn away from especially if you’re a dill pickle fan and not interested in the extra carbs from thick batter. The first time Mrs. CBB and I had deep-fried pickles was when she was about 6 months pregnant and we stopped off for dinner at a Fish n’ Chips dive in town. The restaurant was empty as it was the end of the night so we were guaranteed hot n’ fresh which is what I like. While looking over the menu Mrs.CBB noticed they offered deep-fried pickles. She was like a little kid all excited so we ordered a plate as an appetizer. I wasn’t a huge dill pickle fan but my wife goes mad for them. I was a changed man when I tasted the deep-fried pickles dipped in mayonnaise sauce. Not only were the deep-fried pickles good but I ate some of the best fish n’ chips since arriving in Canada almost 9 years ago. Growing up in the UK fish n’ chips is a big deal so now we have a […]
