Sausage Shrimp Skillet

This week’s one skillet Keto meal is shrimp and sausage. Very simple and tasty. One thing I’ve learned over the years is to do all your prep before you start cooking. It makes the actual cooking much easier and you’re not rushing trying to measure and stir at the same time. It also means less […]

KETO Margarita

Labor day weekend just past recently. As always, it’s a traditional end-of-summer party. A perfect time to cook out and enjoy a cold drink – especially here in Texas where we’re still above 100. I’m a tequila guy. My favorite is Patron Anejo for sipping. My go-to party drink is a margarita. I’ve had a […]

guacamole & The keto diet

The Keto diet is much more than just cutting carbs. The goal is to switch your body from using sugar in the form of carbs to using fat as its main fuel source. The only way to do this is to make sure you get 70-80% of your calories from fat. If you consume too […]

mIRacle Rice!

Ok, so its not really rice. And, I’m not sure yet if its a miracle. But, I’m going to discuss it with you. My Keto coach told me about this product at dinner the other night. So, I ordered some from Amazon and got it yesterday. I got a box of rice and a box […]

Texas Twinkies!!

I found a video in my recommended on YouTube last week. A cowboy cook was making Texas Twinkies and Armadillo Eggs. Both looked good, so I tried one this weekend. A Texas Twinkie is variation of a Jalapeno popper. But, it was good. In a bowl, take a brick of softened cream cheese and a […]

Chicken Wings and Keto

I love chicken wings – its both the perfect snack and the perfect meal. Its also infinitely customizable for your mood just by changing the flavors. With football season coming up, I thought it would be a good time to talk about them. So are wings OK on Keto? Well it depends on how you […]

louisiana hot sauce

I really like Tabasco sauce. If you’re ever in Southwest Louisiana, stop by Avery Island. You can take a self-guided tour and learn how they make Tabasco, buy Tabasco swag, eat in the Tabasco kitchen, and visit the nature preserve. It makes a fun half day adventure on your way to or from New Orleans. […]

Jalapeno chicken bacon poppers

We had some friends over for game night Saturday and I wanted to come up with a new snack. I had had some poppers at the Oasis last weekend and wanted to see if I could recreate them. They turned out really great – Jalapeno slices and cream cheese wrapped in chicken wrapped in Bacon. […]

Jerky!

Jerky is a great food whether you are doing a Keto diet or not. Its portable protein with big flavor. On the go and need a snack? Protein is always better for you than sugar or carbs. You can buy jerky everywhere these days. Just visit a Bass Pro shop and you will find dozens […]

Mango Habenero Smoked Chicken

A friend of mine made me a really nice brisket sized chopping board. I’ve been paying him back in BBQ. So Sunday, I pulled out the smoker and cooked up 2 butts (one for the board payment) and 3 whole chickens. When I smoke chicken, I like to spatchcock the birds. It helps them cook […]
