Orange & Walnut Chocolate Fat Bombs

When creating this recipe, I was inspired by the delicious Crunchy Cherry Chocolate Confections from Low-carb So Simple.

Homemade Vanilla Extract (Vanilla-Infused Vodka)

Vanilla flavour is probably one of the most widely used flavourings in cakes, waffles, cookies and other (low-carb) treats. It's also one of the most expensive spices in the world and that's one of the reasons why most commercially available "vanilla" extracts are synthetic and contain artificial additives. ...

Food extracts can be full of unwanted sugar and other additives such as propylene glycol. The good news is that it's very easy to make your own. This recipe was adapted from PurpleFoodie.

Low-Carb Candied "Yams" with Marshmallows

A couple of weeks ago, I received a request for this Thanksgiving recipe. Making candied yams with marshmallows low-carb was a real challenge for me.

Are you ready for this? These taste almost like real marshmallows. They are light and fluffy but there's no sugar they won't be as chewy as the real deal. They're still quite close though!

Keto Pumpkin & Beef Sautée

As most experienced keto-dieters know, not everything low in carbs can be eaten daily or in unlimited amounts.

The truth is that in most cases, eating low-carb treats such as muffins, sweet breads or cheesecakes ...

Baked Butternut Cups

I created this recipe by accident a few weeks ago when I was working on a recipe for Spiced Butternut Chips.

Chips & Crisps: Spiced Butternut Chips

Butternut squash is a type of winter squash that contains 2-3 times more carbs than summer squash. I wouldn't recommend it for a very low-carb diet, but you can have it as long as you stay within your net carbs limit. Keep in mind that chips and crisps are not meant to replace a proper meal. I admit ...

Keto Pumpkin Smoothie

When switching to a low-carb diet, most people avoid smoothies: They are full of sugar, aren't they? You have to be careful not just with the sweeteners you use but also certain fruits.
