Instant Pot Fajitas

This is the recipe that finally got me to see what all the instapot craze is about. I decided to make this on a night when I had to drop my daughter off at dance at 4 pm 10-15 minutes away and pick her up again at 5pm, and then scarf down dinner before getting…

Baked Brie

This is literally one of my all time favorite things to eat and it’s fairly simple.   Great for a party.  I like to serve it with sliced pieces of baguette, pears, celery, apples, crackers.  And you can honestly use any type of jam you like.  I often choose a lingonberry jam (a little sweet and…

Crock Pot Keto Beef Brisket Stroganoff

One day I had some half of a slab of beef brisket that needed to be used, but also not a lot of time around the dinner hour to cook. I came across this recipe and decided to give it a try for my family and husband who was trying to eat keto at the…

Keto Swedish Meatballs

I have a Swedish Meatball recipe that we already like, but I searched for this one when my husband was trying to eat keto and honestly, I think I actually like this one even more.  That night I actually just used the precooked frozen meatballs from Costco.  I just made the sauce and threw the…

Keto Crab Cakes

My daughter Olivia has been asking for crab cakes lately. I have some crab cake recipes that I really like but they generally call for bread crubs. My husband still fancies himself a keto dieter, so I went in search of a more keto friendly version. I landed on this recipe from foodnetwork. It had…

Chili Con Carne

For some reason Halloween screams Chili to me. This year I made a no bean version of chili for the husband trying to eat keto (not sure that still deems it chili by definition, but we pretended it was). I topped it with a bunch of cheese, tortilla chips, sour cream and avocado and didn’t…

Keto Beef Stew

We are still on the keto kick over here. We also purchased 1/2 of a grass fed cow this year from a friend and my freezer is now loaded with prepackaged beef. So, I have a whole bunch of frozen pre-cubed stew beef. Traditional beef stew generally has potatoes and carrots two things my husband…

Cooler Corn

I had my first go at making cooler corn, and I think it was a success. We planted a whole bunch of corn on the cob and then by the time it was perfect and ready for picking Derek was trying to eat keto and not wanting to eat any corn. I needed to find…

Craig Pierce Tin Foil Dinner

My husband returned home from a scout camp out once and announced that Craig Pierce made the best tin foil dinners he had ever had and that I had to find out his secret.  His wife was happy to share, and I must say these are delicious when camping.  I love that he uses Keilbasa…

Crock Pot Chicken Marsala

I was looking for something different than the typical meat and veggies dinner we always seem to have these days trying to accommodate my keto dieting husband. I wanted something saucy to use over spaghetti squash noodles I planned to make. And I needed something easy for a busy day. I found this Crock Pot…

Peach Ice Cream

Peaches, peaches, and more peaches that’s what we have going on at my house right now. I’ve already made peach pancakes, peach cake, canned peaches and I still have more peaches to use. Tonight for FHE, we decided to have home made peach ice cream. This recipe comes from a little recipe book compiled of…

Peach Cake

When I had an abundance of peaches from my tree, I decided to try this peach cake recipe one night. It’s from a cookbook put together by my mother’s church ward out in Chicago. I swear those are the best kind of cookbooks because people only submit recipes that are good. This is a lot…
