    Easy One Skillet Chicken Alfredo LC/Keto

    This is how most of my dinners go: Look in the fridge Look in the pantry Pick a protein Pick a veggie Start putting it together somehow, using what I have on hand It may not be the best way to prepare dinner, but it goes fast, USUALLY turns out edible, sometimes wonderful and solves the “what to eat for dinner” problem without reading a recipe. This was one of those dishes that I made last night-Chicken breasts. Cut into strips. hmmmm-Mexican, Italian, Southern? Then I spotted a spaghetti squash laying over there on the countertop. Wash, cut, scoop, season, bake. While that was cooking, I started by sauteing the…

    Bubble & Squeak

    You know the sound of bubbling and squeaking? Well, this cabbage and potatoes cooking in a skillet makes THAT noise. Hence the name. “Bubble and squeak is a traditional British breakfast made from boiled potatoes and cabbage. In modern times it is a dish made with the shallow-fried leftover vegetables from a roast dinner. … The dish is so named because the cabbage makes bubbling andsqueaking sounds during the cooking process.” Somewhat the same, but this is my personal version because, well, it just tastes great! It’s also great as a side if you just cook the vegetables in some oil or in bacon grease if you want to add bacon to…

    Chicken Fried???

    Born in Texas, relocated to Washington state, back to Texas, then off to the Pacific Northwest for a year, this gal knows the difference between Southern cooking and what I call “the norm.” You see, Southerners grown up on things like pimento cheese, chicken fried steak (an oxymoron if you ask me), cornbread and buttermilk (in a glass-together!), fried okra, hush puppies and tons of Tex Mex food. “The norm” grows up on salisbury steak with onions, spaghetti and meatballs, beef barley soup and not much, if any, Tex Mex food. So, when a Southerner cooks chicken fried steak, well….it’s not chicken at all. That would be chicken fried chicken.…

    Quick & Easy Chicken Stir-Fry

    This is my easiest low-carb/keto recipe yet. It’s also very adaptable to what you have on hand. Last night I had some frozen broccoli,cauliflower,carrot in a steamer bag. I had a bag of frozen riced cauliflower that I got at Aldi for 1.79 a bag. I also had 3 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless. I steamed the veggies in the microwave, stir-fried the chicken, cut into small strips, then added the riced cauliflower and then the veggies. I added soy sauce and voila!

    Butter Beer Prawn with Cheesy Beer Grits

    Being a Southerner, I do love grits, and not the instant kind. This is my recipe created for World Food Championship in Las Vegas. It was rich, decadent and brought rave reviews and high scores, ranking me #7 in the World in the Seafood category, not to brag. Just facts, ma’am.

    It’s Pizza Night

    Here ya go, one of the many pizza-making projects me and my Italian husband enjoy making together. This time, I used a new keto crust made with herbs and coconut flour, eggs and cheese-the new fathead dough for me. The sauce is always the same-Aldi Vodka Sauce because it has the fewest net carbs. The toppings, always Aldi-this time sausage, green pepper, kalamata olive, arthichoke and feta-stuffed huge green olives, sliced. topped with grated parm and mozzarella. First, let’s talk about the pizza dough. This one is nut-free, made with coconut flour. HERE is the link I used-Sugar-Free Mom’s recipe. The only change I made was to mix in my…

    Jalapeno Popper Chicken

    Photo & Recipe Courtesy of Easy Family Recipes, found on Pinterest. I have made this recipe many times because I love the taste of the fresh jalapeno peppers, whether I chop them or cut them into strips like in the photo. Be sure and remove the seeds! I cut the chicken breasts in half lengthwise because I prefer thin cutlets. It also makes it go a long way. I only use 1 bonesless chicken breast cut in half for 2 servings.

    Schnitzel

    A schnitzel is meat, usually thinned by pounding with a meat tenderizer, that is fried in some kind of oil or fat. The term is most commonly used to refer to meats coated with flour, beaten eggs and bread crumbs, and then fried. To me, there’s nothing like a thin, crispy pork schnitzel, and I’ve found a way to make a low carb version that is just as delicious as the ones I’ve made in traditional breadcrumbs. PORK RINDS! 0 carbs I use this hand little hand-pulled food chopper that I ordered from QVC.   What I did was chop them fine, almost making a “dust.” A dish of 3 eggs,…
