Fork-Tender Dill Pickle Pork Chops with Bacon & Onion Low Carb Recipe

As a family, we’ve decided we’re going to start eating a lower carb diet. Since that’s the case, you’ll be seeing more and more recipe on this site that are of the low carb/keto variety. That said, since I’ve always loved sharing a wide array of delicious recipes with you here, from appetizers to desserts, I do not plan on entirely refocusing my blog in that way.

However, what you CAN expect is a generous sprinkling of lower carb and keto inspired recipes in between all the other cooking and baking recipes you’ve come to love and expect from Kudos Kitchen. Something for everyone is my motto, along with a pinch or two of everything in moderation. 🙂

Spicy Smoky Tex-Mex Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Ground Beef & Beans

You may say to yourself after reading the ingredient list “Hey!” “What in the world is ground cinnamon and cocoa powder doing in a savory recipe like this?” “And what about the butter and lime juice?” “She has really gone off the deep end with this recipe!” “Has Renee lost her mind?!!”

And my answer would be…Well. Maybe. But not about this recipe.

Authentic German Spaetzle Casserole with Cheese & Crispy Onions

This dish for Authentic German Spaetzle Casserole was inspired by a recent trip to Germany my husband, and I was lucky enough to take onboard a Vantage River cruise ship (The River Voyager) down the Rhine River, on one of their culinary excursions. When I tell you it was a dream-trip come true, I am 100% NOT exaggerating!!

Delicioso White Bean, Fennel & Italian Sausage Soup

This recipe for Delicioso White Bean, Fennel & Italian Sausage Soup is one I found, and adapted, from Cooking Light Magazine. I didn’t change the recipe much, but I did add more fennel (because I love the light anise flavor of fennel a lot lately), and I also increased the amount of white beans from the original recipe, and I omitted the sage and parsley because I forgot to purchase them at the market. Doh!

Other than that, this recipe I’m sharing is pretty much just as it was written in the magazine. I DO NOT take credit for this recipe, but I do take credit for sharing it with you here on Kudos Kitchen in case you missed it in Cooking Light Magazine. I strongly urge you to make this soup. It’s delicious!

Extra Cheesy Spaghetti Stuffed Meatloaf for #SundaySupper

I came up with the idea for this Cheesy Spaghetti Stuffed Meatloaf to go along with this week’s #SundaySupper theme of “Cheesy Family Dinners.” I wanted to make something that was a little unexpected, and something that was topped with a thick layer of melted cheese. The result is this very large family-friendly meatloaf that will feed the masses when everyone is gathered around the #SundaySupper table.

Spicy Thai Pulled Pork with Orange for the Slow Cooker

However, if you’re not prepared to wait until summer to make this delicious Spicy Thai Pulled Pork with Orange, I completely understand! If I was you, I’d think up a reason to have friends and family over as soon as possible (maybe for an impromptu game night), just so you can make and serve these amazing sandwiches! I promise you won’t regret it one bit!!

Tasty Chinese Ground Pork Egg Roll Bowl Kudos Kitchen Style

This recipe for a Ground Pork Egg Roll Bowl is my take on a deconstructed egg roll. In place of the crispily fried eggroll wrapper, I’ve used chow mein noodles for crunch as a top garnish along with scallions, and chopped peanuts (which are completely optional). The other ingredients I’ve used are basic Chinese staple pantry ingredients. While there may be quite a few ingredients, they’re invaluable to have in your cupboards for cooking Asian cuisine throughout the year. Invest in them once and you’ll be all set for whenever you have a craving for Chinese food, but don’t want to do take-out.
