Italian Sausage Meatloaf

Meatloaf is my number one all time favorite comfort food! It brings me directly back to my childhood, sitting on the kitchen counter and watching my dad make this delicious meaty loaf! I have quite a few “favorite” meatloaf recipes, this one is a twist on an Italian sausage and peppers! This meatloaf is sure…

Dairy Free Keto Waffles

One of my favorite low carb recipes is that of my Egg Fast waffles, found here Waffle Mania. However, I have been dairy free for two weeks now,  making my waffles a no no. I decided there must be a way to remake them, hence my dairy free keto waffles were born! Don’t let the ingredient…

Pretty Much Sinful Pudding aka PMS Pudding

There is no hiding that I am a chocoholic! I adore chocolate and I don’t think a “bad” chocolate exists, except for white chocolate… it’s not even technically chocolate, people, so that doesn’t count! This pudding is the ultimate chocolate treat! Its is perfect, for men, women and children, however it is, as its name suggests,…

Super Food, Chocolate & Almond Butter Fat Bombs

Fat bombs are all the rage in the Keto and Low Carb communities. There are many varieties to the recipe, some with chocolate, some with coconut oil and berries, others that are savory. When it comes to these chocolate treats I like to keep it simple and tasty. This is my favorite version. I love…

Eggs in Purgatory

Weekends are made for brunch! Prior to having a gaggle of children I loved going out for brunch with my girlfriends. We would sit lazily at an outside venue, sipping mimosas, gossiping and of course, chowing down on some amazing food. One of my favorite places was a little Italian bistro in Chicago. It was at…

Low Carb Herbed Focaccia Bread

One of the hardest items for me to give up when I decided to live a low carb, ketogenic lifestyle, was bread. I adore bread of all kinds! Once I had gotten my mitts on a loaf, there was little chance of it making it through the night… I was a true carb-a-holic! There are roughly 243 carbs…

BLT Caesar Pizza

Its Friday, and Friday typically means PIZZA in this house! Having grown up in Chicago, pizza is some serious business! We ordered from our favorite pizza joint at least once a week. Everyone in Chicago knows the “best” place to find a slice too! When I moved to Wisconsin I quickly learned pizza was something…

Caesar Dressing

I’ve always been a fan of ranch dressing. Nothing could ever compare to it… Until one night I was sitting on my couch watching one of my favorite Travel Channel gurus. He sat at this beautiful restaurant in Tijuana, where he had the most delicious salad prepared for him tableside. I was drooling. Of course…

Mexican Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Taco Tuesday is a BIG deal at our house! It is by far my children’s most favorite week night meal! Without fail, I will pick them up from school and my son will ask, “Taco Tuesday, right Mom?” I assure him, that yes… It is taco Tuesday… again. I love tacos as much as the…

Ranch Dressing 2 Ways

  There are some things that just taste magical when they’re homemade and ranch dressing is one of those things. There really is no comparison. Cool and creamy and bursting with fresh herbs and garlic, it makes any veggie sing! Even little fingers like it!   One thing few people know about me is that…

Faux- Tater Tot Casserole

Faux-Tater Tot casserole was created like most remake recipes, out of sheer desperation to taste a memory. My Step Dad was the Tater Tot Casserole King. He made the BEST! As an adult I carried on the tradition of making them for my kids and family and with each bite my Step Dads memory was…
