Lately, I’ve been attempting more vegetarian dishes in the hopes of finding foods that Ben and I both can eat. Here’s a dish that has been a big hit with him. I’ve made it twice already and he seems to really enjoy it. 🙂
Let’s not kid ourselves: the crust is the best part of the pumpkin pie. It’s typically the best part of any pie. But, if you’re going keto or low-carb or have thing for self-denial, here’s a pretty tasty alternative.
I haven’t posted a recipe in ages. Here’s why: I’ve been cheating on keto like a total jerk. Stuff happened. All kinds of stuff. There were cakes and chips and some champagne. There were bags of mini candies. One time, there was a pizza. Forgive me.
Still, plagued by intermittent guilty feelings and the desire to do anything other than look at a screen, I have managed to cook myself the occasional keto meal over the last few months, and do quickie posts to Instagram. I’ve found that this process provides a pretty satisfying illusion of keeping healthy. Isn’t that what the Internet has taught us: that it’s the illusion that matters? If you’ve got a different takeaway, I don’t know what Internet you’re looking at.
Anywho, how about some pics of some keto meals I made?
Sometimes I want to feel like a fancy lady, living a fancy life with fancy accoutrements and a fancy penchant for using words like “accoutrements” and “penchant,” which I fancily pronounce “ah-coo-trrrrruh-mahhhh” and “pawwwn-shawwwn,” respectively.
These are momentary lapses in an otherwise average daily life. But, when I get that itch, I scratch it. It was during just such an itch that I made this surprisingly lah-dee-dah-tasting lavender vanilla whipped mascarpone cream dessert thingie.
