CInco de Mayo Pork Chops over Cilantro Rice

  Here’s a simple way to make tough thick-cut pork chops fork-tender with a Mexican flavor profile.  I needed to find a recipe for a couple of disappointing pork chops that I knew needed a long braising time.  It just happened to be Cinco de Mayo, and I put together this recipe based on several

Kitchen Tapestry: Crock Pot Chili

This recipe has been updated from the original version posted April 9, 2009.   For something so simple, with relatively few ingredients, chili con carne, or chili with meat, a.k.a. “chili,” has developed a whole lot of mystique, much of which I deem unwarranted. Chili cook-offs as originally created in the late sixties were more drunk-fests

Kitchen Tapestry: The Reuben Sandwich

I’ve argued this subject before. What makes Caesar’s Salad a Caesar’s Salad? What makes Salisbury Steak a Salisbury Steak? And what makes a Martini a Martini?  In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I’m going to explain what makes a Reuben Sandwich a Reuben Sandwich and clear up any misconceptions about not differentiating a Reuben Sandwich

Kitchen Tapestry: Red Beans & Rice

  Fat Tuesday is the final day of decadence and lack of restraint before buckling down and doing some serious atonement for your sins during Lent. It is the culmination of the season known as Mardi Gras.  Tomorrow, you’ll perhaps have ashes applied to your forehead and spend the next six weeks denying yourself of

Kitchen Tapestry: The Dagwood Sandwich

    Dagwood Bumstead was a central character to the comic strip, Blondie, introduced in September of 1930 that was wildly popular throughout that decade and well into the 1950s, but I was surprised to learn that it is still in circulation today.  Its original creator, Chic Young, passed creative control of the comic strip

Moroccan Lamb Tagine

MOROCCAN LAMB TAGINE This is my new, favourite recipe.  This lovely rich and spicy lamb tagine is perfect for cold, wintry evenings.  The flavour is deep and satisfying and the aromas in the house are delightful.  This dish is simple to create and as it bakes slowly in the oven, allows time to socialise with

Cauliflower Couscous

Cauliflower Couscous I’ve created this little side dish as an accompaniment to my Moroccan Lamb Tagine, as an alternative to cauliflower rice.  Easily made within 10 minutes and incredibly versatile if you wish to add traditional vegetables and seasonings to it as a more substantial meal.  As a simple cauliflower couscous, this recipe has just

Lemon & Mascarpone Puddings

LEMON & MASCARPONE PUDDINGS These deliciously light and tasty puddings are the perfect dessert to follow a spicy meal.  The fresh taste of lemon zest with the mascarpone topping is difficult to beat.  These little individual puddings are made and baked within minutes in the microwave, but they can also be baked in the oven


COLESLAW This lovely, sweet, crunchy coleslaw is perfect to serve with fried and baked chicken and with sausage rolls and a cold-meats and cheese picnic plate. A light and healthy addition to most meals – and lovely on a cheese or ham sandwich too.  The batch comes in at 42g net carbs, so you need

Jamaican Jerk Seasoning

JAMAICAN JERK SEASONING I found it impossible (recently) to find Jamaican Jerk seasoning in my local shops, so decided to make my own.  It’s all a matter of degree and taste, but this is as good a place to start as any.  I mixed a couple of different recipes together to determine my own family’s

Jamaican Baked Chicken

JAMAICAN BAKED CHICKEN This is a lovely, keto variation on the KFC type of chicken in seasoned breadcrumbs.  Very simple to make and absolutely delicious to eat.  I tend to make this with chicken thighs as there’s more meat on them than drumsticks and I make chicken breasts for my partner as he doesn’t like

Chocolate Olive Oil Cake

CHOCOLATE OLIVE OIL CAKE This deliciously rich, moist and gooey cake is to die for.  It is incredibly simple to make and, I am sure it will now become a staple, go-to, cake recipe in our household.  I’ve converted the recipe from a regular Sainsbury’s cookbook, so it’s now incredibly keto-friendly and each slice has
