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.

Free Printable Checklist Of Common Spices For Your Kitchen : The Grocery Game Challenge 2018 #3 Mar 19-25

SUPPLY YOUR KITCHEN WITH THESE FAMILIAR SPICES AND ADD A SPLASH OF FLAVOUR TO ALL YOUR MEALS   Having common spices on hand that many recipes call for is one of the smartest and most inexpensive ways to flavour your dishes. It’s that time of year when we do a full spice cabinet wipe and clean along with an inventory of what we have on hand or need to replenish. Get your FREE Printable Common Spices Checklist below!!   Storing Herbs, Spices and Extracts   My father-in-law would make sure his organic herbs were properly dried in parchment paper and sat in a box that resembled a pop case. He’d dry the herbs in the basement on a long 8 foot table during the winter and eventually he would have boxes of herbs to use. There were always herbs hanging upside down from the ceiling as if there were bats in the house. “Be careful what you walk into”, he used to tell me if I would go down to grab something. Once dried always store your spices in a dry space such as a kitchen cabinet where moisture won’t have the opportunity to get inside. Having a good kitchen […]

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 […]

Low Carb Sugar-Free Salted Caramel Cheesecake

MAKING THE BEST HOMEMADE CHEESECAKE IS EASIER THAN YOU THINK-SAVE YOUR MONEY AND DO IT MY WAY!   A couple who are friends of ours absolutely adore cheesecake so when we invited them over for dessert last week we thought we’d surprise them with this decadent  low carb, sugar-free Salted Caramel Cheesecake. Oh yes, they were surprised! We are also huge fans of cheesecake especially the salted caramel cheesecake but most importantly there must be two things present; Thicker Crust Thick Cheesecake If you can carry out those two aspects of a cheesecake you’ve got yourself a winner. I’m actually quite amazed at how many people think cheesecake is a difficult recipe. That is far from the truth. When we created our salted caramel cheesecake we wanted to keep it simple so our guests could add any variation of toppings we offered. What I like about toppings and cheesecake is that you can add just about anything. Since the CBB house has went low carb and sugar-free just about everything we make takes that path. It has been 2 years since Mrs. CBB gave up sugar and she feels great and doesn’t crave it like she used to. For this […]
