Easy Low Carb Meals for Campfire Cooking & Photos from Inks Lake State Park

Well, we’ve just returned from yet another camping weekend, our 4th since the hubby convinced me I might not actually hate the great outdoors a few years back. This time, we ventured to Inks Lake State Park, just about an hour outside of Austin. And while I’ve talked about my “glamping” mindset in the past, … Continue reading “Easy Low Carb Meals for Campfire Cooking & Photos from Inks Lake State Park”

A Week of Low-Carb Meals, Day Four: Slow Cooker Beef Stew

Well, we got a little off track with our posting cadence, but we’re still aboard the low-carb train here at Unintended Domesticity headquarters and this past Monday, I made one of my all-time favorite meals. You see, when I was a little girl, I had a very old nanny named Aunt Neva. Aunt Neva always … Continue reading “A Week of Low-Carb Meals, Day Four: Slow Cooker Beef Stew”

A Week of Low-Carb Meals, Day 3: Southwest Ranch Chicken Breasts

We continue forward on our low–carb mission, and tonight’s dinner is another riff on the hubby’s favorites. I make a version of this dish stuffed with rice and beans, similar to what I’ve written about previously in the Southwestern Stuffed Portabellas. But in order to cut the carb, this recipe takes a slightly different spin, … Continue reading “A Week of Low-Carb Meals, Day 3: Southwest Ranch Chicken Breasts”

A Week of Low-Carb Meals, Day 2: Pecan & Parmesan Crusted Chicken Breast

Easing the hubby into low-carb eating continues here at Unintended Domesticity HQ, and after posting yesterday’s recipe, I got a really interesting comment from a friend. She lamented that she felt like having her husband join her on a diet was “punishing him,” and so she struggled with cooking meals that met both her dietary … Continue reading “A Week of Low-Carb Meals, Day 2: Pecan & Parmesan Crusted Chicken Breast”

A Week of Low-Carb Meals, Day 1: Southern-Style Shrimp Boil

We’ve kicked off another round of “healthy eating” here at Unintended Domesticity, HQ. I’m calling it “pre-gaming” for the inevitable holiday weight gain. So, much to the hubby’s chagrin, we’ve once again cut out grains & added sugar from our diets. The hubby in particular considers a low-carb diet something akin to torture. He simply … Continue reading “A Week of Low-Carb Meals, Day 1: Southern-Style Shrimp Boil”

Low-carb Dinner: Thai Peanut & Sesame Chicken Lettuce Wrap

Now that we’re back from Alaska, we’re back on another low-carb kick. This time around, though, I’ve created some new recipes that we’ve really enjoyed, and I’ll share them with you in the coming weeks. Tonight’s dish was peanut & sesame chicken lettuce wraps.  I’ve shared a recipe for lettuce wraps before, but the chicken and … Continue reading “Low-carb Dinner: Thai Peanut & Sesame Chicken Lettuce Wrap”

Skinny Margaritas for Cinco De Mayo!

It’s Cinco De Mayo, that day when white people appropriate Hispanic culture without any knowledge of the day’s historical background at all, but, hey, margaritas, amirite?! We’re back on a low carb kick here in the Unintended Domesticity household, so for me, any celebratory margaritas have to be of the skinny variety. Luckily, I’ve spent … Continue reading “Skinny Margaritas for Cinco De Mayo!”

From Table Scraps to Super Soup: Making Your Own (Sugar-Free) Chicken Broth

As we often tend to go on low-carb kicks around these parts, I’ve come to know that you often find sugar hiding in some pretty unexpected places…everything from beans to tomato sauce to salad dressings often include the added white stuff. But my personal pet peeve for hidden added sugar? Chicken broth. Go ahead and … Continue reading “From Table Scraps to Super Soup: Making Your Own (Sugar-Free) Chicken Broth”

Healthy Recipe: Easy Tuna Poke Bowl

I’ve always been a huge fan of sushi, but I’ve never actually tried making it at home. It just seems like a lot of work. Who has time for that on a week day? But when we did the Meal Kit Review Series a couple months ago, one of the recipes was for a “poke bowl.” … Continue reading “Healthy Recipe: Easy Tuna Poke Bowl”

My Top 10 Pantry & Freezer Basics

A friend reached out to me recently with a blog request. She told me that she felt like she was “failing the pantry and freezer game.” She wants to cook more, but is quite busy. She thought perhaps if she had more things on hand in her pantry and freezer that she could just throw together in … Continue reading “My Top 10 Pantry & Freezer Basics”
