Do you enjoy whipped cream, but don’t enjoy the cruddy ingredients in the store bought whipped cream? Well making it yourself is super easy to do at home and you only need heavy whipping cream, or full fat coconut milk if you’re dairy free, a keto sweetener(if you want it sweetened), and an electric hand mixer. If you’re making a large batch you may want to use a stand mixer or different from what I am using in the video. Continue reading “Whip it Good!”
It’s Tax Season
I am sorry I haven’t been around or updating my kitchen. I can’t believe it was November that I posted last! December got away from me with Christmas and I had so much I wanted to post too! Oh well, one can only do so much. It’s tax season and I work preparing taxes during that time. As you can imagine life is crazy right now, add in the crazed panic of the Covid-19 virus going around and that only increases the craziness. So please forgive my absence, but know that after April 15th I have some great posts lined up and coming your way. New videos, interviews, health articles and finishing my 3 part series on diabetes and blood sugar I started in November. The site will also get a facelift as I learn how to make things searchable, pin-able and printable! Lots I want to accomplish. So stay tuned and let us countdown to April 15th. In the meantime stay safe and healthy. Know all my followers are in my prayers. Much love from all of us at Shari’s LowCarb Kitchen.
Enchilada Stuffed Peppers
One meal I miss from my higher carb eating days is my cheesy enchiladas. Mr Low Carb didn’t really care for them as he doesn’t like refried beans but he would eat whatever I made. I knew I had to find a low carb alternative for this! I have also been on a stuffed pepper kick lately, don’t ask me why, which is really strange because I never really used to like peppers. It’s funny how my taste buds have changed with this new lifestyle. Last week I made lasagna stuffed peppers, but forgot to take pictures or track what I put in them so no blog post for those, however I will post the next time I make them.

Wellness Wednesday interview with Laura
Today I had the pleasure of interviewing my dear friend Laura. Laura is a busy wife and mom/grandma to her awesome hubby and their 10 children and 3 grandchildren. Laura is blessed to be able to stay at home and even watches the grandkids! She is an awesome go getter and I just love hearing her tips and ideas for large families. Listen to how switching to from the SAD way of eating to the LCHHF way of eating is working for her family, how they feel their health is changing, how their budget is and much more.

Shari’s Frappe Bomb
Warmer weather is upon us and with that comes increased consumption of cold refreshing beverages. I have been enjoying iced cold brew coffee, frappuccinos, iced tea, and tea frappes. It sometimes gets too warm in my kitchen to really want to cook anything so experimenting with cold drink recipes lets me still feel creative without making myself a hot mess! Today my oldest daughter and I went on a nice long walk, well she walked and I rollerbladed for over 3 miles! I managed to not fall and break anything, quite impressed with myself. We were both hot when we got home so what is more refreshing than a nice cold frappuccino! So I set to work making us up a nice refreshing treat. Continue reading “Shari’s Frappe Bomb”
Testimony Tuesday with Maggie Lee
In an effort to reach more people and impact more lives with the low carb life and NeoLife we decided to do a series of testimony interviews a couple times a month with people who have been impacted from Shari’s Low Carb Kitchen and/or NeoLife. Originally we were going to do this testimony last Wednesday, however Facebook was having global issues and I wanted to share it as a FB Live video. The rest of the week did not work do to the holiday and then the weekend so we settled on Tuesday evening. Continue reading “Testimony Tuesday with Maggie Lee”
Let’s get our Challenge on!
Have you ever thought to yourself, “Man, I need to make a change in the way I eat but I have no clue where to start!” Have you been researching ketogenic low carb diets and after researching are more confused than when you started? Do you think it’s too elaborate or just a quick fix? You hear all these strange words, like Macronutrient and Micronutrient and your brain fogs and eyes glaze over as you quickly try to google what these terms mean. Continue reading “Let’s get our Challenge on!”
Low Carb and budgeting
Recently a dear friend of mine mentioned that she was doing low carb meals as the budget allowed for and asked if there was such a thing of budget friendly low carb meals. This got me thinking that if my friend thinks this way of life is not budget friendly then I am sure many other people do as well and it may deter them from this healthier way of life. So to my keyboard I sprung to give a few tips on keeping this budget friendly.
We all have food budgets each with their own limits. Continue reading “Low Carb and budgeting”
Chocolate Cheesecake Deliciousness
I have been having a hankering for a nice dessert and cheese cake seemed to fit the bill nicely. Much to my chagrin I have never made a cheesecake, at least not one that didn’t come from a box. I am not much of a dessert person to begin with so it’s pretty typical not to make desserts, though I used to make a mean cookie! I try not to have many sweets low carb or not, but every now and then it is a nice treat. We had a potluck dinner last week so I decided to try my hand at a chocolate cheesecake because like bacon, chocolate also makes everything better!

Have your Rolls and Eat them too!
Going LCHF/Ketogenic doesn’t mean you have to give up bread! This Keto Roll recipe is simple to make and doesn’t take fancy ingredients. The fanciest ingredient needed is Psyllium husk powder, which should be a staple in your kitchen, and the rest are ingredients almost everyone would have on hand. You can even change it up by adding different seasonings such as garlic for a lovely garlic roll to go with a yummy spaghetti squash dish! So versatile!
