Mini Kale Fritattas with Pepperoni

mini kale fritattas 048

I've been on a kale kick lately. Yesterday, I purchased 2 bunches of kale to make smoothies with. I know what you're thinking... ewwww kale?! Gross. But, with pepperonis and parmesan cheese, kale is REALLY good. It's also good in smoothies and every now and then I'll go over to Juice It and get my energy boost from one of their greeen juices. Eggs with kale is also delicious and if you've never tried kale before, now would be the time! It is New Years after all, and  everyone is trying to ...

Strawberry Coconut Truffles

slow cooker meat sauce 019

  This recipe I saw on Facebook. Have you ever gone to Tip Hero's facebook page and watched any of there videos? Wow, are they addicting. Anyways... What intrigued me most about the recipe was the coconut butter. You can make your own coconut butter from stratch and all you need is coconut flakes and a food processor.  It's pretty much the same way you would make peanut butter and the coconut flakes eventually turn into coconut butter. Is your mind blown? Mine was, when I watched that video. I ...

Slow Cooker Bolognese Sauce

slow cooker meat sauce 002

When I want a hearty spaghetti meat sauce, I usually use my Mom's recipe that she would give us when my brother and I were kids. She was nice enough and left out the olives. Her sauce had ground beef, tomato sauce, seasonings, and a little bit of onion. This Bolognese sauce is different and a little bit on the fancier side. Add in some wine (you can sub chicken broth), bacon, and a little heavy cream to the sauce and it will make your typical everyday spaghetti meat sauce taste 100% times b ...

Low Carb Almond Flour Pizza Crust

low carb pizza crust 016

  Low carb pizza crust, can it be true?! And guess what? It isn't made with stinkin cauliflower! Hooray! All you do is mix all the ingredients and spread out the dough onto a baking sheet. No having your house smell like stinky cauliflower, no draining the the cauliflower to get all the moisture out! Super easy. I'm not a cauliflower fan, so those low carb cauliflower pizza crust recipes don't excite me at all. I know that's what all the rage is right now, for making a low carb pizza crust. ...

Low Sodium Taco Salad

parmesan crusted tilapia 019

I was pretty proud of myself this week. I packed my own lunch for 3 days! Lunch is the hardest part of the day for me. It's pretty easy just to walk over to the grocery store and spend around $4 to $6 on a salad. There is also a Taco Bell near by and a really good Candy Shop that also sells sandwiches and soup for lunch. That can get pretty spendy every day. My aunt makes a really good Dorito Taco Salad and this was kind of the insipration for this. Doritos aren't very carb friendly, so I ...

Mini Oreo Cheesecakes

mini oreo cheesecakes 001

These bite size mini oreo cheesecakes will not have you missing a whole slice of cheesecake! The crust is an oreo and the top of the cheesecake has crushed oreos on top.  Cheesecake is hard to make low carb. It has so much sugar in it. I'd use the sugar substitutes but I have yet to find a decent one that doesn't leave a bad after taste in your mouth. That is one thing I hate about Stevia. I wish I had someone trying to help me update all my Weight Watcher Recipes.  I've got almost 400 Weight ...

Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

parmesan crusted tilapia 014

  I had an extra tilapia filet leftover from when I made that other tilapia recipe the other day ago.  This tilapia is coated in parmesan cheese, dried parsley flakes, and a little bit of paprika. I've been thinking of ways you could coat chicken/fish with bread crumbs and came across this parmesan cheese coated tilapia filet. There is the answer, parmesan cheese! I made this tilapia for one person. You can easily double the amount if making for more than 1. Usually, when I have a very ...

Low Carb Bread

low carb bread 022

Low carb bread that actually tastes good?! Are you insane? Why yes, I am insane. This bread is made with ground up almonds. That means someone spent a lot of time processing almonds into flour for you, so you could still enjoy bread on a low carb diet. Does that make you happy? Yes, it does for me. I'm sorry if you're allergic to nuts. :( I have had this bag of almond flour sitting in my pantry for quite some time. I had got it the last time I had made a trip to Trader Joe's. I want to start ...
