Salisbury Steak

  Don’t confuse Salisbury Steak with Swiss Steak.  A lot of people do, which is understandable since both are beef entrees that have been simmered in a sauce and are perfectly accompanied by mashed potatoes, rice or noodles.  Both gained popularity in the 1950s and ’60s with the advent of frozen TV dinners and were

Steak Tartare

The origin of this recipe is steeped in misinformation commonly repeated by people who lack critical thinking skills and are too lazy to conduct a modicum of research.  The usual tale is that this recipe is called “tartare” after the ethnic group, known as the Tartars (notice the absent ‘e’) who ultimately became part of

Crock Pot New England Style Seafood Chowder

As with a low-carb version of a Bacon Chicken Chowder I posted earlier this year, the recipe presented herein meets the culinary definition of a chowder in that it consists of vegetables and protein in a creamy broth thickened with a roux (actually in this case, a slurry).  However, this is a far more traditional


FLATBREAD This lovely recipe is so versatile.  I mainly use it for dips when eating tapas or for an evening snack with cheese whilst watching a movie.  You can season the flatbread in whatever way you wish and cut the dough to whatever shape you wish. I make 24 small oblong flatbreads and they come

Sausage Rolls

SAUSAGE ROLLS This quick and easy recipe is a must for winter suppers, lunches or weekend snacks.  Sausage Rolls!  Made with your favourite sausages and a peppery version of the fathead pizza dough, they come out of the oven crispy, golden brown and delicious and won’t last long.  I use my favourite sausages from my

Capellini Pie

The more common version of this recipe is called Spaghetti Pie.  But spaghetti is not what I had on hand for this occasion when I needed to use up an over-production of Angel Hair pasta I made several days before.  I had some jarred Italian sauce left, so I improvised to make a pie out

Creamy-Crispy Hamburger Rice Casserole

Anxious for some genuine, home-cooked comfort food after a grueling two weeks relocating our household from one state to another, and totally sick of DoorDash, I went about my new kitchen to create a dinner rice casserole.  Few things are as comforting to me as hamburger, cheese and white rice, and borrowing a few recipe

Vanilla Fudge

VANILLA FUDGE Can you believe you can eat anything like fudge when on a diet?  Well, with keto and low-carb you can – as long as you use a sugar substitute like Bocha Sweet.  Discovering this product has totally revolutionised my keto diet and cooking.  Using Bocha Sweet is allowing me to indulge my sweet

Spinach & Feta Pinwheels

SPINACH & FETA PINWHEELS After making the Indian Samosa Pinwheels last weekend and because I love feta cheese, I was inspired to create a new and popular option on the pinwheel – a spinach and feta version.  This is a lovely option and can be made so quickly.  The pinwheels can be made up in


PIZZA I’ve been trying everything I can with my Fathead Pizza Dough as it’s such a lovely and versatile dough to use.  It is wonderful for pizza, producing crispy edges and a softer, but non-floppy centre, for the most perfect of pizza bases.  The dough comes in at 18 net carbs, so that is 9

Mango Chutney

MANGO CHUTNEY Mango is not a fruit that is often seen as part of a keto diet as this wonderful fruit contains so much natural sugar (and therefore carbs).  However, as I’ve said before, I am not a keto purist, so because I love mango so much, I have worked on recipes where I can


RAITA This lovely, cooling and fresh accompaniment is perfect to serve with my Indian Samosa Pinwheels or to be used as an individual salad dish.  It takes just minutes to prepare and this recipe produces a 250g tub of Raita, which is roughly 10tblsp.  Each tblsp of Raita comes in at 0.8g net carbs.  The
