An Unmeasured Approach: The NYTimes’ Spinach Artichoke Dip

The NYTimes’ has a great low-carb, keto-friendly recipe for spinach artichoke dip. Hooray!

Unfortunately, in my hunger and excitement, I did not have the patience to measure out the ingredients. So, for this meal (Ben and I ate it for dinner – he with bread and potato chips, I with a lowcarb tortilla and strips of bacon), I kinda just eyeballed the amounts until I thought things looked (and tasted) good.

Find the recipe here. A couple more pics of how mine turned out, plus a couple of notes after the cut.

Not exactly a recipe, but here’s a little something I made for breakfast the other day – leftovers reheated in little cups made of salami. Just pop the salami in a muffin tin, fill with whatever low-carb, keto-friendly leftover you have on hand, top with cheese, and pop in the a 350 degree oven for ten minutes until the cheese has melted and the leftovers are reheated. More pics after the cut.

Keto Spinach & Cheddar Soufflé

spinach souffles (1)

I love meat. I adore it. There is no time of day – sleeping, showering, jury duty – when I couldn’t go for a nice grass-fed ribeye. But, I acknowledge that there are folks out there who prefer their eats a little less “moo” and a lot more “imperceptible sound of plant growth.” In fact, one of those people has been my boyfriend for the past 17 years. (Life is weird sometimes. I’ve learned to stop asking questions.)

So, for him and several of my similarly meat-averse friends, I’ve decided to attempt some vegetarian keto cooking. This spinach soufflé was my first experiment. I thought it was damn delicious, frankly. That boyfriend guy liked it, too.

Winner Winner Chicken Lunch

Pan-Fried Chicken Mushrooms en Creme.png

I couldn’t think of a clever preamble to this recipe. I considered referencing Food, Inc. and the terror of chickens it instilled in me. Then, I considered a reference to the amazing Jacques Pépin, his apparent love of chicken, and the recently released Jacques Pépin: The Art of Craft from the American Masters series.

But, you know what? This is simple food. Let’s give it a simple post. Fuck it.
