Chili garnished with guacamole, sour cream, and cheddar cheese. The weather is getting colder and it is time to switch from summer salads to winter soups and stews.

Thanksgiving Before Keto

This Thanksgiving is my first "eating" holiday on keto.

Pecan Shortbread Pie Crust

We have been searching for a sturdy and delicious crust to use for cheesecakes and pies. We decided that shortbread would be an easy crust for these desserts. Since my husband's favorite nuts are pecans, and he puts them in anything he can fit them into, we use ground pecans to add stability and flavor … Continue reading Pecan Shortbread Pie Crust
