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.

Top with chocolate ganache to hide any cracks and add a layer of richness and decadence. Original recipe uses graham cracker crumbs for the crust.

I love cheesecake. Joe would say cheesecake is his favorite dessert. Our favorite cheesecake is served at a diner not far from our home.  It’s amazing. I think we might have a new favorite now. I’ve never before tried to make a cheesecake, and I found the April Daring Bakers Challenge a bit daunting. Jenny from JennyBakes.com proposed that we all make the same cheesecake, but she challenged participants to make their cheesecakes show stoppers. I tried. How’s that fellow to the right? He’s a show stopper, all right. I jest. The cheesecake was a little ugly, but I doctored … Read more

The Best Gluten-Free Pecan Pie Recipe

Before my bariatric surgery, I loved pecan pie. It was my favorite pie ever, and I made a lot of them. And ate them. No holiday went by without a decadent pecan pie. When I went gluten-free, I thought I wouldn’t be able to eat another pecan pie, but then I had a thought. I never loved the crust of the pie anyway, so why not adjust the recipe a bit and make the pie without the crust? I did it, and the pie was a crazy success. As you can see in the photo above, the pie was sturdy enough to … Read more

Healthy Baked Falafels Recipe

I love this falafel recipe. We’ve been making them for over ten years. Our kids won’t eat them, but they are great for a date night. We also make them sometimes and nuke some chicken nuggets for the kids. If you make these, you absolutely must make the tzatziki sauce that goes with them. Having them without is like eating plain dry spaghetti noodles. Maybe you like dry spaghetti noodles, but I promise that they’re better with sauce. These are just like that.
