Just found a new use for the Instant Pot: cooking pork ribs. Since my dessert recipes worked out so well and I had ribs from the dumpster that I didn't know how to cook, I decided to cook them using the Instant Pot. So let's go over the recipe I used. ...continue reading "InstaPot Pork Ribs"

If you keep up with our blog, you know that we don't eat bread or other sugar-filled items. As a result, this typically means no pizza, because the crust is very obviously carby. So, when you have a craving and you just need pizza, we came up with this recipe for crustless pizza. ...continue reading "Keto Crustless Pizza"

We felt like having a treat this weekend, so we tried out our flourless chocolate cake recipe using the instant pot. Normally we don't add sugar to our recipes, but in this case, we cheat. Since we are using sweetened chocolate, the chocolate comes with sugar added. ...continue reading "InstaPot Flourless Chocolate Cake"

Last night, I decided I wanted some cookies. I wanted to use up some eggs and almond butter that I found from the dumpster, so I used a recipe that would consume them. Since they turned out pretty well, I thought I would share my recipe. ...continue reading "Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies"

A while back, I collected a bunch of cream cheese from one of my dumpster visits. It's been sitting in my freezer for awhile and I'm starting to try to clean out my freezer. I decided that a keto friendly version of cheesecake is a good use of the cream cheese  since it gives me a low carb option to get my calories. ...continue reading "InstaPot Keto Lime Cheesecake"

A week of fasting seems to have brought out all sorts of food to the dumpster.

There was a dozen avocados which are a great source of fat. Not all of them were still good, but it was okay to be picky about ripe avocados when I found so many. I was excited to add these to my salads or just eat straight.

I found broccoli, apples, tomatoes, celery, cauliflower, pepper, zucchini and onion. These veggies are all yummy things for me to hold on to and eat through the next week or so to keep myself eating healthy.

I also found chips, triscuits, graham crackers, gummy fruit, gum, and bagel chips. These are not items I generally eat, except some of the blue corn chips. I'll end up giving them to those I know that will eat them.

With all the apples I got, almost two boxes full, I decided I needed something to do with them. One thing I might usually do is make hard cider, but since I've been cutting down on my cider drinking, I decided some apple crisp was a good alternative. The main reason for the apple crisp was then I had something to bring to a party I was going to.

Apple Crisp Recipe


Apple QuartersI cut up 10 apples to make an apple crisp into a 8x8 square pyrex pan. To do this, I quarter the apples, cut off the core, peel them, and put the peeled quarter into water for later.

Then I cut the quarters into slices so Cut applesthey would cook better. I filled the pyrex dish with the apples until it was overflowing. Then I sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on the apples.

Crumble Cover

Now lets talk about the apple cover. Since I tend to be gluten free, it was passover, and I didn't feel like shopping, I used ingredients I had in the house. That means I used almond meal, coconut oil, and brown sugar.  I melted the coconut oil so that it was easy to stir together with the other ingredients, then I added some cinnamon into the mixture since you can never have too much cinnamon.

I then put the topping on the apples and baked it in the over at 350 for 30 minutes.
