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.
A couple weeks ago we were able to make one of our goals become a reality. Mr. Low Carb and I have wanted to have monthly low carb potlucks to grow our low carb community and educate on the ketogenic way of life. Finally after months of saying we were going to do this our first one happened on September 12th, 2019. We had a lovely turn out and loads of great food, which I forgot to photograph. We did have another mini one a couple days later for a breakfast version, which I did photograph the food. One out of two isn’t bad, right?
I also gave a presentation for why we want to live the low carb life. It is my plan to give a mini presentation at each potluck focusing on a different aspect each time.
I hope this will encourage some to work to grow their low carb ketogenic community and support. You do not have to give presentations, just get together and share great food and recipes!
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.

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.

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”
It’s finally summer here in the frozen tundra and I have been having fun making various cold drinks. I have been enjoying iced coffee, coffee frappuccinos and tea frappes. I created one that is super yummy with a powdered Chai tea. After posting a picture on Facebook I had about 5 people message me for the recipe. I knew this must be the next recipe to go up on the blog. Of course this meant I had to make another one so I could take the pictures for the post and with that comes with having to drink it, Oh darn! 🙂 You too will want to make this again and again. It’s perfect for after dinner like a dessert or in the morning for a nice breakfast beverage. Continue reading “Full Fat Chai Frappe”
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”
Tonight’s dinners is one of our family favorites, of course the past few times we have made it I wasn’t able to capture the pictures for a nice post. Surprise surprise I still got barely any pictures, at least I did get one of the finished recipe. This makes about 6 servings and takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish to make! The best part, this is easy to increase and is easy on the budget…perfect for party or a big family like mine!
