Stuffed Eggplant & Ham Steak Cucumber Sauce

I enjoy taking old recipe books and recreating the recipes to work for a Keto and Low Carb Low Sugar Lifestyle. We enjoyed the Ham steak cucumber sauce; it was easy to throw together and I also used it as a dipping sauce for veggies.

I had never had eggplant, and after cutting it open, I was prepared to not like it, because it reminded me of Tofu. The texture, the smell, the feel of it; I thought, “I’m probably not going to care for this” We didn’t eat this the day I made it, because while preparing it, we filled up on other foods. So, I wrapped these and put them in the refrigerator overnight. The next day, I heated them in the microwave for 60 seconds. We were blown away by the flavor. We are seriously impressed, and this recipe is now added to my ‘make again file’. It is hard to take an appealing photo of eggplant dishes, but here ya go. I’m enjoying the recipes I’m finding in this book. The recipes are easy to convert to Keto Low Carb Low Sugar recipes.

Pumpkin Pecan Pancakes

Pumpkin Pecan pancakes for lunch today – it was like having dessert, while having lunch (of course, with a side of bacon)

This made 7 (about 3″ wide) pancakes for me. I used a sugar free maple syrup and added a side of bacon. You can also try these with sugar free jam, or just butter, or maybe some cinnamon sugar (keto style), etc. I froze the remainder of these, and love knowing they are in the freezer when I want a quick breakfast.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Sriracha Aioli


The lime juice and lemon juice were spot on for this dish. For the dip, I used 2 tsps. of the Sriracha chili sauce, because my husband does not like things too hot, and since the sriracha was on the brussels sprouts, I decided to keep it tame. I could have eaten it with more chili sauce in the mayo, but husband says the spice was perfect.

I also added broccoli and garlic cloves to the other side of the baking sheet, and a couple of chicken thighs.

My husband said the dip was excellent with those as well. This is a dish I will make again.

here is the recipe

in the new TOH Annual Recipes issue on page 7, by Molly Winsten.

I was on a workout machine this morning, and I started to scan this, but couldn’t get past the first couple pages, because I kept saying, “That looks good! I have all of this! and Oh my” 

Apricot Financiers

Apricot Financiers – these cute little bite size cakes are yummy! – I browsed my cookbooks and found something I had all the ingredients for (only 4 ingredients!) These are perfect because they are not too sweet – the sweetness is the apricot – these are made with almond paste –

Tips: The recipe says 30-40 minutes – 30 burned them – the second batch I did for 18 and it still would have been best at about 15 but the good thing is I only did a few on second batch to figure out the time so only do a few to figure out your time Second: I used cup cake liners for first batch – hard to get out – stuck to liners – second batch I just sprayed the mini muffin tin – perfect – came out easily I halved the recipe as I only had 8 oz. almond paste and half made a lot

also the next time I make these (and I will) I will add a small piece of apricot to the bottom of each cup before pouring batter over – I used a pastry bag as it is just easier for me to control portions. Also I let this sit in fridge over night before baking – the recipe recommends a few hours or overnight

Keto Celebrations: Low-Carb Dishes for Holidays and Special Occasions Paperback – July 14, 2020

by Mary Alexander 

I checked this book out from my library. The recipe called for chicken, but I had leftover hamburger to use up. I will definitely make this with chicken.

I am so impressed with the recipes in this book, I have ordered a copy so that I can make notes in it.

cheese wraps


I added a side salad; cabbage/kale dish and a celery stick with sugar free peanut butter. What a pleasant meal.

Keto Crunchy Granola

Game Changer for me! I just had a 1/4 cup of this with some strawberries and blueberries and a couple tablespoons of unsweetened almond milk. So delicious! I stored this in a large mason jar, in the fridge.

You do have to watch this closely; after the first 15 minutes, you stir and then watch in 5 minute increments – I put mine on a silicone mat – very easy to pour it directly in to a large mason jar, and store in the refrigerator.

The website I found this on has many many Keto friendly recipes, I have pinterest marked for future creations.

Cauliflower Pizza

DELICIOUS! this is my first time making a pizza without the bread crust; I followed Dr Berg’s video on youtube, and OMGoodness! I’m impressed! Next time, I’ll add salami; one thing I did different than Dr. Berg, was I used a pizza screen with the parchment, and I added herbs to the crust and to the top. My husband is going to be impressed

Honey Apple Crisp

Oh My! This is dangerously delicious. Jim and I want more, but I’d become ill from the sugar overload. Jim had 3 bowls. This will be my go to recipe from now on. This was very easy to make. I baked it in a cast iron skillet
