A firm family favourite of ours, I just had to adapt our traditional family recipe to enable us to continue to enjoy it whilst observing our keto and low-carb diets.  We like quite large portions, so this comes out at 9g each if you cut 6 portions from the recipe.  Using courgettes in place of the regular pasta has been a revelation.  It works!

Low Carb Beef Enchiladas

I love Mexican food, but it’s tough to find recipes that are low-carb friendly. More to the point of this posting, it’s been hard, until now, to find a low-carb substitute for tortillas and tougher still to make enchiladas without them.  This is the second recipe I’ve tried with a relatively new product on the

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

My mother was French Canadian, but I recall her mentioning that a fair number of Polish people lived in the small Ontario town where she grew up.  She said there were certain parts of the city where you could walk down the street and smell garlic cooking.  To be sure, someone there would likely have

Swiss Steak in a Crock Pot

The great thing about the Internet is that there is a lot of information to choose from.  The bad thing about the Internet is there is a lot of misinformation to choose from.  Case in point here.  Search for a Swiss Steak recipe and you’ll find a very wide array of options, many of which

Low Carb Copycat Taco Seasoning

There’s about a billion ways to make a Taco Salad. They were purportedly first served as “Ta-Cups” at Disneyland in Anaheim, California in 1955, created by the original inventor of Fritos Corn Chips, Elmer Doolin. That’s at least the official version of the story from a 2013 book, Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America.

Alpha-Uno Steak Sauce

This started as a copycat recipe for A-1 Steak Sauce.  You can search the internet and find the recipe everywhere and all are identical.  But I don’t really understand the need to make something identical to a sauce that is readily available, both in the grocery store and in my pantry.  We’re never without it


Moussaka is something of a national dish in Greece, but it is thought to have actually originated in Arabia when eggplant found its way into that country from sub-Saharan Africa.  The dish migrated throughout the Middle East and the first known recipe was published in a Turkish cookbook in the very late nineteenth century.  Via

Chilies Rellenos Casserole

  Some time back, I posted a group of recipes entitled A Mexican Supper which housed three dishes: Oven Fried Chicken Chimichangas, Guacamole and Spanish Rice, the latter of which was a direct recipe from the time honored Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook, which I’ve had in my cookbook library since the early 1970s. It

New Year’s Tenderloin Bruschetta

I’m calling this recipe New Year’s Tenderloin Bruschetta (a) because I made it as a New Year’s Eve accompaniment to a veritable bacchanal of premium caviar and Russian vodka shots, and (b) because I made my recipe, Marinated Tenderloin of Beef with Sauce Béarnaise for Christmas and had a fair amount of leftover tenderloin that

Meatloaf in a Minute

Minus the chopping, it will take you all of a minute to put this meatloaf together and one hour to cook.  I was charged with putting together a dinner very quickly and used what I had on hand.  To be sure, this isn’t my signature meatloaf recipe, with a lattice of bacon or a pancetta

Kicked Up Meatloaf with Mac and Cheese

In the preceding post, I included a recipe for Boursin Macaroni & Cheese.  It was great, fit the bill for the evening I had planned, but was not to be repeated on this occasion.  This was not just about Mac & Cheese.  This was about the totality of a Comfort Food Dinner.  After a grueling

Crock Pot Beef Stew

This kind of cooking doesn’t get any easier.  Simply put all these ingredients together in a crock pot, set it on “high” for six hours, and you’re good to go.  The secret to a delicious stew is in not using the cuts of beef typically sold at your grocery store as “stew meat.”  These are
