Last week, we tried out a new recipe! If you’ve read my blog before, you’re probably getting the picture that the mister and I are creatures of habit. When we find something we like, we tend to stick with it. Recipes are no different. Well, I have to say that we’ve found a winner in this delicious Crockpot Beef Roast from Life as the Coats. Difficulty Level: Easy Mode This recipe was incredibly simple. It takes five ingredients, and only […]
Prep took me approximately 20 minutes, but that’s mostly because I was being slow. If I’d been in a hurry, I could have had it done in 15. The biggest time saver is to drain, rinse and pat the tomatoes dry while the sausage is browning.
Last night we tried out these Salmon Patties with Fresh Herbs over at Ruled.me. The first time I make a recipe, it always takes me longer than I anticipate it will, mostly because I haven’t figured out what changes and tricks I can use to make things go faster.
Of course, I made adjustments, because that’s what I do! There was no way I was going to cut up all those veggies by hand, and I certainly wasn’t about to start measuring out spices. That’s for people who have time!
I began to brown the meat, humming to myself as I worked. And then the timer went off. Well, they certainly looked quite nice. And then I tried to remove them from the parchment paper.
Tonight we tried a new recipe! Low-carb Pepperoni Pizza Chicken from Kalyn’s Kitchen. This is one of those recipes that, if you didn’t know it was, you wouldn’t think it was something you could eat on a diet.
Yesterday, I got adventurous! Hubby and I aren’t the best fans of most vegetables. Well…any vegetable really. So trying a new recipe that calls for vegetables is a bit daunting, to say the least. Will we like it? Will we be able to taste it? Will it taste okay if we can taste it? So this weekend while we were planning our menu for the coming week, I flipped through my Low Carb/Keto Pinterest board where I save all the recipes that […]
Little indulgences at night help to keep stress low and make you look forward to having all the tedious parts of the day at an end. Most evenings, hubby and I indulge in a bit of ice cream. I know, I know. How can I eat ice cream every day and still expect to lose weight? It’s all in the type of ice cream you eat, and how much of it! Ice creams made with little sugar or sugar substitutes […]
The one thing I’ve really struggled with since we’ve gone low carb is that I can’t have much bread any more. And I love bread. We eat a lot of fast food (mostly because I don’t like to cook much), and I miss the nice fluffy buns that come on my chicken sandwiches. But no longer will I lament the loss of bread!
