Lemon Mug Cake

When I am in the mood for something quick and delicious, mug cakes are always my go to! Lemon Mug Cake is so moist and soft and delicious, with the perfect amount of zest to it. The recipe brings me back to my Starbucks days where I would get a caramel frapp and a lemon pound cake. Talk about sugar!! Wow! Thinking back to that I use to have so much sugar in my diet. I would usually eat that for breakfast. So happy those days are in the past.

The best part about mug cakes is that they are so simple. With just a few ingredients and a couple minutes in the microwave you are set for a flavor packed, full of fat delicious dessert. If I am not in the mood for baking but craving something sweet I usually make these.

Easy 5 minute Mug Cake

A lot of mug cakes come out so dry and I am not a fan of that. I like soft and moist cakes. Also I use heavy cream because it makes them that moist texture instead of dry, and the butter helps with that as well. By adding the lemon zest to this mug cake it brings out the lemon flavor a lot more, but if you end up not adding it that is completely fine as well. It will still have a great lemon flavor to it.

A sweet little treat that is easy to make!

Lemon mug cake is one of my favorite recipes to make. When I made these for the updated photos, of course I ate one. I also put one in the fridge and brought it to work the next day. It was easy, all I did was wrap it in a damp paper towel and warmed it up in the microwave for 30 seconds. This recipe is great to make for a treat in your lunch! You can also just put all of the ingredients into a mug and keep it in the fridge. Then you can warm it up the next day.

Cashew Chicken

I tried Cashew Chicken for the first time the other day, and I knew I had to make a recipe for it. It is definitely a great comfort food recipe. If you are a fan on chicken recipes, you are going to want to add this to your list of easy dinner meals. The sauce in this chicken recipe adds so much flavor to the dish, and so easy to make! Just a few simple steps and dinner is ready for the whole family.

Easy Cashew Chicken Dinner

There are just a few easy steps for this recipe. I used a cast iron skillet to make this delicious chicken. When it comes to cooking dinner I love using my cast iron skillet. Cast iron cooks everything so well and easy to make in it. Lets start with the chicken, you will want to put some oil in the pan and put your cut up chicken in the skillet. Once you have the chicken cooking make sure to cook it until its cooked all the way.

Now on to the delicious sauce! The sauce in this recipe is really the star of the show. I like to add all of the ingredients together and mix it up well. When the sauce is mixed up you will want to add it to the cooked chicken while still on the stove. Keep cooking until everything is nice and hot.

What a beautiful dish you have just made! I promise the family is going to love this recipe. Easy chicken recipes are one of our go to’s in this house. There are different garnishes you can put on this recipe that would go great on this cashew chicken. The two main garnishes you can put on this recipe is green onions and sesame seeds. I even put hemp hearts on top of this dish. It may seem kind of weird but hemp hearts are so good for you. They have so many health benefits. Some other delicious chicken recipes you will love.

Delicious and easy meal prep.

You know I am a huge fan of meal prepping. This is another great meal to make for your meals throughout the week. Cauliflower rice is the perfect side to go with this low carb cashew chicken recipe. I honestly love to make cauliflower rice with most of my dinners. Here is how I usually make my cauliflower rice: I usually use frozen cauliflower rice, it is much easier to use. I get my skillet hot and add in the cauliflower then cook it until it starts to brown then I add in about a tablespoon of butter, pink Himalayan salt and garlic powder. I promise this is how you will want to cook your cauliflower rice every time.

Add some fancy chop sticks to your plated cashew chicken and cauliflower rice and serve it up to the family. I love to cook warm and delicious meals for my family. Family dinners are where the memories are made and my personal recommendation is to always make time to sit down at the end of the day and eat a meal together. You will thank yourself in the future.

Strawberry Cheesecake Bars

I think strawberries have become my new thing, do you agree? I have been obsessed with them lately, but let me tell you about this delicious keto treat. You are going to obsess over these Strawberry Cheesecake Bars once you take your first bite. When I made my first keto cheesecake I just about lost my mind! I was blown away on how amazing it was. I feared keto because I am a sugar addict and addicted to sweet treats. Low Carb cheesecake has been one of my main go to’s since starting the keto diet. This strawberry cheesecake keto recipe certainly takes it up a notch!

Strawberry Cheesecake for the win this summer!

Cheesecake is one of the easiest recipes to make. There are so many different ways to make it too. You can make no bake cheesecake or you can bake it. If you are a fan of keto no bake cheesecake check out our No Bake Cheesecake recipe. When I made these for the first time they only lasted a couple of days. I brought them to work and so many of my coworkers devoured them. This keto cheesecake recipe is certainly my new go to recipe for a sweet treat. I made this recipe into bars, but you can also make this recipe in a normal pie pan as well. If you want to use something other than strawberries you can use blueberries instead. There are so many different toppings you can put on cheesecake. What do you like to put on top of your cheesecake?

Sugar free low carb dessert

Do you want to hear my epic fail while taking these photos? Well let me tell you. Those cute little cups full of lemonade got knocked over and spilt all over my cheesecake….. It was tragic! Luckily I had just about finished taking the photos. Some pieces didn’t get wet, so I was able to take some more photos of the individual pieces. Food photography may look pretty but it is never perfect. When you make this recipe, make sure to have others around to share it with. I could eat the whole pan of cheesecake. This recipe is that delicious!

This recipe can also be stored in the fridge. I poured mine into mason jars and stored them up to a week. They still tasted amazing. I doubt you will have to store the drink but if you do then it is no problem. Mason jars are one of my favorite ways to store things. It keeps things fresh and sealed tight. Plus they look really nice in the the fridge or pantry.

Strawberries, Mint Leaves, Lemons and Limes are delicious together.

We planted a vegetable, fruit and herbs garden in our backyard. The strawberries haven’t grown yet but I got to use my own mint leaves in this recipe! It is so nice having my own herbs to pick. I would always buy herbs at the store and use them once then have to throw them away. It was a very wasteful way of using herbs. Having a garden has been pretty amazing, I can’t wait for everything to start growing more. I plan on writing blog posts about my garden so keep an eye out for those!

Wine on Keto

Wine on keto? Yes! you can definitely have wine while on a keto diet. I was never a huge fan of wine until I started the keto diet. Back in the day I would drink Moscato and sweet red wines, which is pretty much alcoholic juice. I could not stand the taste of dry wines, until my pallet changed. The past year or so Lauren and I have been really into tasting different types of wine. National Wine Day is on May 25, 2019.

Happy National Wine Day!

Yes you can drink wine!

Some people may say that all wine tastes the same, but I highly disagree. When we started to taste different types of wine and really learned about wine, I learned to taste the different flavors in wine. The same thing happened with beer, and I don’t mean the low carb beers, I am talking about craft beer. I am a huge fan of craft beer. Now it isn’t low carb but sometimes we will indulge. Next time you have a glass of wine try plugging one nostril and sniff the wine and then do the opposite side and it will smell different! Weird I know but just give it a try. Always smell your wine.

If you haven’t been to a wine tasting I highly recommend it. Learning about wine and the different flavors can be so much fun. Plus you can eat cheese with wine, umm yum! Next time you go to the store to get some wine read the descriptions and try different kinds.

Cabernet Sauvignon Wine!

Cabernet Sauvignon is our favorite in this household. A little history on this type of wine is it comes from the seventeenth century in the southwestern part of France. This wine was invented by breeding a red Cabernet Franc grape plant and a white Sauvignon Blanc grape plant. Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in a wide verity of places and is one of the most popular wines know today.

Wine can fit into a low carb diet.

Carbs in Wine

Alcohol on keto can definitely kick you out of ketosis, but it will only be while your body is working on the alcohol you have consumed. As long as you are sticking to the unsweetened and dry alcohols you will be fine and won’t have a double hangover the next day. If you are sticking to the dryer wines then you will be having about 2-5g of carbs per 5ozs, which isn’t that bad. Just try not to drink the whole bottle, but you do you boo! 😉

The types of wines I recommend sticking to are:

Reds – Cabernet (3.8 carbs), Pinot Noir (3.4), Merlot (3.7), Zinfandel (2.4), and Syrah (3.8)

Whites – Chardonnay (3.1), Pinot Grigio (3), Pino Blanc (2.85), Brut Cava (2.8), Sparkling White Wine (1.5), and Albarino (3.5)

Other drinks you may like that we have on the blog:

While you are indulging in all of the fancy, delicious wines have some cheese with it! The best thing to have with your glass of wine is a charcuterie board. Load it up with tons of different cheeses, meats, olives, berries, vegetables, and cheese crackers. We are going to our local Wine Festival this weekend to indulge in all of the delicious locals wines we have here in New Mexico. Are you going to any Wine Festivals this summer?

Get your Electrolytes in!

Electrolytes are very important on the keto diet especially when drinking. There are lots of different electrolyte powders out there, but I like to make my own. The electrolyte drink I make every day contains: a couple pinches of pink salt, 1/2 tsp of potassium (we use no-salt brand) and a MIO flavor. I also like to take a magnesium supplement everyday.

PB&J Cookies

Remember being a child and your mom making you a delicious peanut butter and jelly sandwich? This recipe is PB&J Cookies, peanut butter and jelly dessert. The kids are going to absolutely love these cookies. These no sugar, low carb cookies would be great for birthday parties.

Peanut Butter Cookies are one of our Favorites

If you are a fan of peanut butter cookies then you will love this recipe. These peanut butter and jelly cookies are are even delicious without the jelly if you are just wanting peanut butter cookies. Next time you are wanting something sweet, fire up the oven and pour yourself a glass of almond milk, dip these cookies in and enjoy.

We used sugar free grape jelly on this recipe, but you can use strawberry, or blueberry jellies. Any jelly you would like to use would work great! Sugar free jellies don’t have the best ingredients but it is nice to use every now and then. You can also mash up some fresh strawberries or any kind of berries. Add the mashed up berries to a pan with a little bit of water and erythritol to make your own jelly!

Low Carb Cookies are always a great option!

This recipe is super easy to make and such simple ingredients. This recipe only calls for a few ingredients and tastes amazing.

Berries have always been my favorite fruit, and when they are mixed with cream cheese, oh my it is so good! Have you ever had the Chantilly Cake from Whole Foods? The first time I ever had that cake I was about 13 years old at my friends house for her birthday. I’ll admit I fell in love with it! I didn’t have it again for probably 5 years, and have only had it a handful of times since. With this recipe now I can have I all of the time.

Something I like to have as a delicious treat is just the frosting. The frosting in this recipe is like a sweet cheesecake fluff. It is a great source of fat, and a tasty treat with delicious fruit. I used strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries in this recipe, which went perfectly together. I would love to see your creations of this recipe and see your beautiful cakes!
