Mediterranean Cauliflower Rice

Perfect addition to our Greek and Mediterranean menu here at home 🇬🇷 I used frozen cauliflower rice for this recipe, but you can also use fresh cauliflower. You would need to “rice” the cauliflower by putting the florets in your food processor and pulsing until they are close to the consistency of rice. If youContinue reading “Mediterranean Cauliflower Rice”

Greek Pork Chops

These pork chops are marinated overnight and sautéed on your cast iron skillet, cooked under 10 mins and so juicy. If you’re tired of dry pork chops, I cannot stress enough that they need to be marinated. Making a quality marinade for your meats is more important than how you cook them! As long asContinue reading “Greek Pork Chops”

Cajun Sausage & Sun-dried Tomatoes Dish

I originally made this dish with pasta, but wanted to make it keto friendly! It turned out so yummy, you wouldn’t even know it was low carb.

I’ve made sautéed green beans many times, but this time I wanted to update and make it keto friendly! Using fresh green beans is always my go-to, but you can also use frozen.

I love trying new side dishes, especially savory ones 😋 I have sautéed mushrooms before but I wanted to try roasting them to see if they taste better. And they do!

My husband makes a delicious Pico de Gallo salsa, I also make an amazing salsa verde, but I wanted to try something new and make a red salsa with roasted tomatoes! A salsa that would be blended and not as chunky as the PicoContinue reading “Roasted Red Salsa”
