Prosciutto-Wrapped Avocado Slices

I told you yesterday about finding a prosciutto end on clearance at my local produce market, and made up Parmesan Prosciutto Potato Packets. Today, let's get all low-carb appetizer-y with Prosciutto-Wrapped Avocado Slices. Note that these are not nice thin wrap-around slices of prosciutto -- my "end," alas, turned out to be mostly rind and wouldn't slice up all pretty like that. Still darn tasty, though! I found this recipe on, and basically halved it for one … [Read more...]

Gluten Free Dairy Free Low Carb Chicken Pot Pie

You don't usually hear "gluten free," "dairy free," "low carb," and "chicken pot pie" together -- but today is Father's Day, and low carb ScratchupsDad deserved some comfort food! Chicken pot pie is one of the top comfort foods he misses from his pre-low carb days, so I set out to scratch up something that both he and dairy free Junior High Guy could enjoy, cognitive dissonance be damned. Given that this is what's left after they had at it, I'd say that Gluten Free Dairy Free Low Carb … [Read more...]

Chili Garlic Cannellini Dip

I wish I could tell you there was some kind of coherent thought process or planning behind this recipe, but here's more along the lines of how it actually went. Hmm, I haven't had hummus in a while.

And these limes are getting kind of old, too. Wait, if I made a bean dip with cannellini beans it … [Read more...]

Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas

A couple of weeks ago I was shopping at ALDI, as I'm wont to do, when I ran across a half price clearance boneless pork butt roast. But not just any pork roast -- this was a gigantic (over 8 lb) monster pork roast, marked down to just $.90/lb! For $7.42, it simply had to come home with me. But then I had the question of: What do you make with a giant 8 lb pork roast, anyway? Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas, that's what! Good thing I invested in a 7 quart crock pot a while back, because it comes … [Read more...]

Gluten Free Dairy Free Whole Egg Coconut Macaroons

Tropical Traditions provided me with a free sample of this product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review or sponsor a product giveaway in return for the free product. I know I haven't posted new recipes for a couple of weeks -- I swear, we have actually been eating this whole time, I've just been too swamped to tell you about it. :) So here's a sweet apology recipe for being gone so long: Easy-Peasy … [Read more...]
