    Onion Braised Brisket for Two

    This takes a while to cook so set this aside for a weekend. The recipe is slightly adapted from the original I found online that used a 6 pound brisket. That’s too big for my wife and myself. When I buy brisket I buy it when it’s on sale and divide it into 2 pound […]

  • Low Carb Chocolate Custard

    This is low carb but not keto because I used table sugar in the recipe. While I’ve used some of the natural and artificial sugar substitutes I’ve always found them lacking. I thought allulose powder was the closest in taste and texture to real sugar but it is expensive and still not thoroughly studied to […]

  • Keto Chocolate Almond Torte

    Update: Hat tip to Kate. She noticed I had an entire stick of butter for the ingredients when this only requires at most 2 tablespoons. Thank you! This is based off a recipe from Milk Street for a Caprese Chocolate and Almond Torte. It seemed easy enough to convert to a keto friendly version so […]

  • Chicken Thighs in Lemon Butter w/ Capers

    This is an easy and quick weeknight meal. I love chicken thighs because they are difficult to over cook and they have tons of flavor. I’ve always preferred dark meat on birds to the white meat. This dish should take no more than 30 minutes from start to finish. I served this along side some […]

In searching for different oil alternatives a lot of keto and sites that are anti vegetable and seed oil suggest olive oil. I tried it and it doesn’t […]
