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.
The first recipe I tried from this thick book was the Supreme Pizza soup; because I had everything, and it is raining and cold outside. Jim ate 4 bowls immediately. Jim said the pepperoni slices are what made him think pizza. This soup is delicious.
I look forward to making many more dishes. I have added tabs to several pages. This is a nice size book, with color photos of every recipe. The recipes sound easy and yummy. The ingredients are easy to come by, if they are not already on your shelf. Most of these ingredients are already on my shelf.
I first came across Kyndra Holley books at my library. After trying many recipes, I started ordering the books online. I enjoy her blog: peaceloveandlowcarb, and her recipe creations.
I had to do something with the Asparagus, because we got tired of it this past weekend after I made a large batch to go with our campfire foods. Jim did not want heavy cream in it, so I found this recipe on this blog called, “onceuponachef“
This is delicious! I added adobe chili pepper and chili pepper flakes to my bowl, and it was perfect! Jim said this was so pleasant with this weather. I poured it in jars for us to heat up for the next several meals.
This is her photo of what you need for this recipe
When Jim makes salsa burgers – he always makes a lot. I have to figure out how to use them in recipes because I get tired of them. Chili has been done. Sloppy Joe sandwiches, and so on. With just a few left, I remembered a meal my best friends mother use to make for us kids when we were younger – there were six of us and her 4 – she served this with buttered bread and it was so good.
I only have 3 ingredients here:
Jim’s salsa burgers
Campbell’s Pork & Beans
Mix together and heat. Jim had never had this before. He ate it all and said, “more please” So, I bought some hamburger, mixed in taco seasoning packet and the onion and beans. Super Easy.
