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 Food.com, 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!

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 Low Carb Almond Flour Pizza Crust

I had this rest of this bag of Bob's Red Mill finely ground almond meal/flour left over from making Gluten Free Almond Crackers and Gluten Free Dairy Free Almond Flour Brownies. Well, when we were eating the crackers last week, ScratchupsDad commented that he could see them making a really good pizza crust. I took this as a challenge, so accordingly modified the crackers recipe a bit (swapping out oregano for the rosemary, cutting down on the ratio of flour to egg & oil, changing up the … [Read more...]

Coconut Flour Paleo Pork Chops — Dairy Free, Gluten Free

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 recently received a sample pack of Tropical Traditions organic coconut flour for review. Now, we're not actually Paleo here, but I do have one wheat free guy and one low carb guy, and some of the Paleo principles translate well to … [Read more...]
