Gorgonzola Cole Slaw

In our household, my Number One Fan is the Vice President of Cole Slaw.  I’m not sure why.  Maybe it’s because I never really made cole slaw before we met; I just bought it, usually at KFC or a neighborhood barbecue joint.  But restaurant prepared cole slaw and store-bought, too, will almost always contain sugar,

Double-Cut Pork Chop Stuffed with Spinach, Roasted Tomatoes & Goat Cheese

I may have one other recipe adapted from the so-called celebrity chef, Giada de Laurentiis, which says something about either how little I watched her show or how little I think of her cooking. In fact, I wasn’t inspired by her recipe so much as I stumbled upon it while searching online for any recipe

San Antonio Beef

This is a re-posting of a recipe I published originally in July of 2010.  But I’ve made modifications to it and completely altered the cooking method from stove top to an oven-braised process.  Sugar Busters was one of the low-carb diet fads of the late 1990s.  The original book was written and published in 1998

Low Carb Bacon Chicken Crock Pot Chowder

In the strictest interpretation of culinary terms, a chowder is a classification of soup that contains large chunks of protein and vegetables in a cream-based broth.  In the northeast, hearty seafood and clam chowders with diced potatoes are common.  In the southwest, chowders are made with choirzo, chicken and very often, corn instead of potatoes. 

Lo Carb Chicken Milanese with Sautéed Zucchini

In 2012, I posted a recipe for Paillard of Sirloin Milanese served with a tomato relish, found here. Although I didn’t write it into the title, it was also low carb and substituted soy flour for wheat flour that would be found in the original Italian recipe – which would be made with veal, not

Summer Squash Casserole

The true origination of this recipe cannot be known.  The summer squash as it is sometimes called, although available now almost all year long, or yellow squash, or as I call them, crook-neck squash, is indigenous to the North American continent and the earliest archeological record of their cultivation and consumption by neolithic humans is

Berkshire Pork Tomahawk Chops with Shallot & Cherub Tomato Pan Gravy

I am fond of quoting George Carlin:  “Most people are really f-ing stupid.  Should we just adopt all of their standards?”  The little ol’ pork chop – the one you see in Styrofoam containers wrapped in cellophane at your neighborhood grocery store – is a good study in just how stupid people can be. In

Creamed Spinach

Last night for dinner, I was going to make my Flourless Spinach Soufflé, the recipe for which can be found here.  The problem was that I had two other menu items being cooked at different temperatures in both of my two ovens.  It occurred to me at the last minute that the soufflé was to

Low Carb Chicken Fried Steak with Cream Gravy

There are dozens of low carb or Keto versions of the classic chicken fried steak recipe on the Internet and it seems as though a lot of them feel like they need to explain that chicken fried steak doesn’t have any chicken in it.  That may be beneficial information for a bunch of Yankees who

Rutabaga Fries

    I decided on a lark to make oven fries out of the oddest of root vegetables, a rutabaga. It’s referred to as a yellow turnip in some European countries, but the rutabaga is actually a hybrid of cabbage and the more traditional white turnip. Its texture is less dense than a turnip and

Beer Braised & Broiled Pork Belly

  I have been studying up on the dining prospect of preparing pork belly for dinner one night. As is typical in the Internet culinary world, opinions are diverse in how to prepare this lowly cut of pork that until recently, hasn’t been getting a lot of attention short of preparing it as bacon.  In

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
