Keto Quiche


Crust:
1 cup almond flour
3 tablespoons coconut flour
2 eggs lightly beaten
4 tablespoons slightly melted coconut oil (let it cool)
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
* optional 1 tablespoon fresh minced thyme or basil your choice just for flavor (I used basil)

Quiche:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
5 large eggs
1/4 cup minced onion of your choice (I used dehydrated that I re-hydrated cause that's what I had)
1/2 teaspoon Pink Himalayan Salt
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
pinch nutmeg
10 slices precooked crumbled bacon
1 cup Mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350°.
Mix all of the dry ingredients together for the crust.
Then mix in the eggs and and melted oil and basil. (Make sure oil isn't hot we don't want to cook the eggs.)
Until soft dough forms.
Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan.
Press the dough into the pan with your hands.
Bake the dough in the oven for 8 minutes or until slightly brown. (If it puffs up a bit just prick it with a fork.)
In the mean time whisk together the cream, eggs, onions, salt, pepper, pinch of nutmeg in a medium bowl.
Then gently fold in the crumbled bacon and cheeses.
Pour the egg mixture into your precooked crust.
Bake for about 25 to 30 min until a you can insert a knife and it comes out clean.
Let cool for  about 5 to 7 minutes before serving.
Leftovers should be covered in plastic or place in airtight container and refrigerated.

My family doesn't eat Keto only I do, but even my kid loved this so it's a keeper. I gotta say being on the Keto diet has been easy but when I can make dishes like this and the whole family will eat it, it's worth it.

Dollar Store Halloween Table


Let me start off by saying I love Halloween, the costumes, candy and especially the decorating. What I don't like is spending an arm and a leg to decorate for it. So I hit the dollar store and what do you know, you can find some cute stuff. I already had a red tablecloth, so I bought the spiderweb tablecloth to go over it, then just played off that. When I saw the silver spider dish I knew he would be a focal point and we will pile on silver wrapped Hershey kisses to make it look bigger. We grabbed red and black felt skulls to go with the tablecloths. We found matching plates to rest the skulls on, but we switched and did opposite colors underneath so the skulls would pop. Then I found these cute skeleton hand cups that also match the color scheme, which we'll probably fill with dip or candy. To finish it off, these cute little glitter spiders that tie in the focal point spider to the rest of the table. This whole thing only cost me a whopping $12.00. Not bad right?
