I LOVE PIZZA!  It may be my favourite food in the whole world.  If you've been doing the Keto diet a while, you probably have your favourite pizza recipe.  This one is mine!  It is a variation on this recipe from Frugal Farm Wife.  I love the texture of this crust—it's not too thick, and though it's not super crunchy, it is firm enough to hold its shape for hand-held eating (if you like that sort of thing).  Here's what you'll need:

Here's how it works.  This is a skillet crust recipe that's prepared in a non-stick skillet before topping and going in the oven to bake.  I preheat my oven to 400 F/200 C and put my skillet over medium heat.  In a medium-sized bowl, I whisk together 1/4 cup coconut flour, 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese (the kind that looks like powder), 1/2 teaspoon Psyllium Fibre Powder (I am using Bob's Red Mill brand), and 1/2 teaspoon of Italian Seasoning.  Make sure all the lumps are mashed and that all the dry ingredients are well co…

Snack Attack! NORI NACHOS

I've been working with a food vlogger, so it got me thinking about what I like to eat.  One of my favourite snacks is what I like to call "Nori Nachos," made from the seaweed sheets most often used for wraps and sushi rolls.  I preheat my oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit or 200 Centigrade.  The Ocean's Halo brand full size nori sheets are the easiest for me to get a hold of, but if you can find them, the smaller seaweed snack size sheets are great because they are already the perfect size!  I've also used brands like Sea's Gift and Nora (my favourite when I can find it cos they come in multi-packs).

I usually lay out two full sheets on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.  You can use just about any cheese you want.  I love making keto pizzas, so I almost always have shredded part-skim mozzarella on hand and use it for these nachos as well.  I used about a quarter to a third a cup of shredded cheese on each sheet, followed by a generous sprinkling of red pepper fla…


Hi!  It's been a while, and like most of you, I am in lockdown, trying to stay out of reach of COVID-19, which is everywhere.  Hope you are also doing your best to keep safe!  Please wear a mask and stay 6 feet or 2 meters away from other folks if you must go out!

This week, I decided to try shirataki noodles for the first time.  I was longing for something different, but also am trying to be frugal right now and use things I have in my cupboard.  I did, however, pick up a pack of Miracle Noodles Angel Hair Pasta, which I have never bought before.  For health reasons, there are a few standard food ingredients, like wheat and peanuts, that I have to avoid, so this seemed like a good idea.  I also sometimes eat buckwheat pasta, such as these soba noodles, but since I've been doing the Keto diet for a some time now, I was also want something low carb, and these fit the bill!

So I raided the refrigerator and cupboard and pulled out these things to make what I'm calling Faux P…
