Zucchini Sausage Egg Muffins Recipe (Gluten-Free & Low Carb)

How to make low carb gluten-free breakfast muffins with eggs, sausage, and zucchini - This quick, simple, and easy recipe has a ton of keto protein and is great for breakfast, brunch, lunches, or snacks.

One of the things I have consistently eaten since my bariatric surgery in April 2017 is egg muffins. At first, after my surgery, I could only eat one egg muffin and that was it. Now, I usually eat two or three along with some veggies, and it’s a perfect high protein meal for breakfast, lunch, or even a snack. The thing I love most about egg muffins is that they’re quick and easy – both to make and to eat. They make a great on-the-go meal for rushed mornings or packed lunches. This recipe comes from Irena Macri of Instant Pot … Read more

Prosciutto-Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers with Herb Cream Cheese (Super Healthy & Low Carb)

How to make the best homemade, healthy, low carb jalapeño pepper poppers wrapped in bacon or pancetta. They are baked in the oven or air fryer, not fried in oil. Simple & easy to make stuffed with herb cream cheese. Good for keto or paleo diets.

I love jalapeño poppers. Seriously, they could be my favorite food, especially the ones from Arby’s; I think Arby’s are the best. Unfortunately, Arby’s (and most other commercial pepper poppers) are breaded and deep fried, leaving them laden with carbs, fat, and calories. Since I eat a very low calorie, low carb diet as the result of my bariatric surgery, I can’t manage eating for the rest of the day if I indulge in a couple of pepper poppers. Fortunately for me, this simple and easy recipe from Catherine Baez Sholl of The Fit and Healthy Baker comes to the rescue … Read more

Hot Pizza Dip Recipe

The best hot pizza dip, originally from a Pampered Chef recipe - Simple and easy with cream cheese and pizza sauce, this dip is the perfect appetizer. Low carb and gluten free. Great with pepperoni, olives, mushrooms, or other pizza toppings. Perfect food for the Super Bowl or parties. Kids love this too. Lots of mozzarella cheese.

  When I was a Pampered Chef consultant, I made this hot pizza dip recipe pretty often at parties. It was always a big hit because it tastes amazing, and it’s easy to put together. The original recipe is slightly different than my version. If you want the real Pampered Chef recipe, you’ll have to Google it. We took this to our small group meeting for church, and everyone had seconds. When we make it at home, the kids make sandwiches out of their scooper chips. I don’t get it, but they always do it, so it must be a … Read more

Jamaican Chicken Nachos

How to make simple and easy Jamaican chicken nachos recipe - These are the best spicy homemade nachos! Quick recipe, good for weeknight dinner!

For the last couple of weeks, I have been unapologetically devouring comfort food. Lots of it. Hot Pockets, pizza, ice cream, baked potatoes with cheese, French fries. I have not exactly been the picture of healthy eating. That’s not the whole story, really. Sometimes, Joe makes healthy food like potato chowder or spaghetti with chicken, and I eat that, too. But if I have a choice, I’ve been really hungry for the less than healthy comfort stuff. I think it has something to do with pregnancy. It’s a good excuse. Several years ago, I hosted a Pampered Chef party, and … Read more

Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Chicken Dip

I love Buffalo Chicken Dip. The spicy buffalo wing sauce juxtaposed with the creamy salad dressing renders me incapable of walking away from the table whenever it’s served. It’s a sickness, I think. The first time I shared a recipe for Buffalo Chicken Dip, I shared my coworker’s instructions. She uses whole chicken breasts and shreds them before making the dip. We aren’t quite that put together around here, so when we need shredded chicken, we use canned. I buy Swanson shredded chicken at Sam’s Club, and it’s relatively inexpensive. This particular recipe is so mild that my kids beg … Read more
