If you want an even lower carb count, or less fiber (some don’t do well on lots of fiber), meat crust pizza – meatza – is a tasty option. I usually make mini meatzas, but today I felt like making a “real” pizza and cutting it into slices. If you flatten the meat well, and bake it long enough, you can even eat this meatza with your hands, if you’re so inclined. [Read more…] about Meatza Recipe
Eggs benedict and a Bloody Mary – now that’s my definition of a perfect brunch! It’s been several years since I ordered eggs benedict, though, because I don’t eat bread anymore. This past weekend, it occurred to me that the only high-carb part of eggs benedict is the English muffin- and that I could replace it with a low-carb alternative. I did, and we loved the rich, delicious result.
There are two alternatives that I could think of to the English muffin – oopsie rolls and low carb microwave bread. I used the bread, because it’s quicker. But oopsie rolls should work too, and will have the advantage of not imparting a slight coconut flavor to this dish. [Read more…] about Low Carb Eggs Benedict

I adore fresh tomatoes, especially firm, sweet summer tomatoes. Those mealy pink tomatoes that you can buy in winter are just depressing. My favorite way to eat tomatoes, by far, is caprese salad. So simple, yet so fresh and delicious.
When broiling tomatoes, you sacrifice an element of sweetness and freshness, but you gain lots of flavor. Cooking tomatoes really brings out and concentrates their unique taste. Instead of sweet, they become tangy and piquant.
I like to serve broiled tomatoes as a side dish to meat. They’re also very good for brunch, as a side to eggs. [Read more…] about Broiled Tomatoes
