Typically ribs are coated in a thick, sugary BBQ sauce, and even dry rubbed ribs often contain brown sugar as a primary ingredient in the rub. Given that KETO isn’t about depriving yourself, it’s about eating the right way, we sometimes have to modify or cut out things that we leaned was ok, but really isn’t. Don’t forget to remove the membrane if it is present. Some butcher shops will do this for you, but many will leave it on as well. This membrane is a thin but very tough layer that can ruin the experience of eating the ribs if not removed. (you could totally throw it in the InstantPot with the bones after the meal for some bone broth!) While choosing your meat try going organic grass fed and avoid completely frozen meat, when you have variations of pork a pig from poultry farm is the best choice.
This delicious ‘pibeetto‘ cheese recipe is a safe version of Pimento cheese and is quick and so easy to make! It contains common ingredients and of course it’s NAGless.
I have no idea why; but broccoli gets eaten by the double portions (usually with seconds) here in our home. Not complaining, as broccoli is FULL of good things, and delicious to boot, but it sometimes gets boring using our standard oil, salt&pepper roasted standby. This is a great option to shake things up, but still get them trees into your diet.
Salad season is upon us! I love getting creative with my salads, and this one is a favorite around here that gets gobbled up; even by the picky 5yo.
If you grew up in middle America in the 80’s or 90’s (maybe prior; not sure when it was launched) You probably had Hamburger Helper at least a few times. It was a regular at my house growing up. It was cheap, fast, easy, and foolproof. Enough so that it was one of the first things I started making for myself as an older kiddo. This recipe is free from those nasty additives, but full of the yumm. (and even has some veggies, added! Look at me mom!)
Around here, I am known for these ‘NOtatoes’, and killer gravy. Which makes sense, as those are my favorite foods. Caramelized fennel bulbs with sauteed horseradish and lemon grass adds mellow sweetness to creamy mashed root vegetables flavored with truffle oil and Parmesan cheese.
Mushrooms, bacon, faux-nions and faux-lic are combined into a rich, hearty and cheesy mushroom dip. If you like stuffed mushrooms you are really going to love this warm mushroom dip recipe!
A simple, yet versitile and delicious lemon and butter sauce to put on everything. (Ok, not like, ice cream… weirdo.)
Caesar dressing has nothing to do with Julius Caesar or Shakespeare. It’s most commonly ascribed to Cesare Cardini, an Italian immigrant who claimed to have invented it in 1920’s Tijuana. There are others who also took credit for its invention, and no one knows for sure…
My Nana wasn’t the best cook. She used packets for gravy, boxes for potatoes, stuffing, and canned soup. She fed her family on a shoestring though; and it was a different time in the world. This recipe is one I stumbled upon years and years ago. Since we went NAG free, I’ve modified it to be safe, but it’s still as delicious as the first time I had it at a USAF squadron function years ago.
An easy baked salmon recipe that can be made in minutes for any night of the week. This glaze recipe is so tasty, and it really gives the salmon a kick of flavor!
Instead of opening up a can of condensed soup, and thereby avoiding a bunch of sketchy ingredients you cannot pronounce, make this easy, creamy, and flavorful condensed cream of chicken soup with supplies you likely have on hand.
