I think the only thing left to say to 2020 is... Best wishes. Kindest regards.
📷 Smoked Crab Dip - Reshoot and updated this whole recipe yesterday (and a video too... I was busy). It was obviously a very self-serving project because not only does it now look beautiful on the blog but I get to eat this and about 20 other appetizers tonight 😜. I love how versatile the dip is and you can serve it with a ton of veggies, my low carb pita chips or crackers and bread for the whole fam to enjoy. Grab the details linked in bio and Happy FREAKING New Year 🍾🥳💙 -L
📷 Three Champagne cocktails that I love for celebrating the new year 🥂
🍾 The French 75 (low carb optional)
🍾 The "Wizard of Ouzo" (very similar riff on the French 75
🍾 Romeo and Julep (prosecco based mint julep and it's divine)
If one of these don't fit your fancy, just scroll one of the 80+ cocktails on my website. All can be made regular or modified for a lower carb or sugar free diet. Check it out and celebrate responsibily 🥂💙🥳 -L
Just a friendly reminder that red and white wine pairs well with a crazy family 😜
📸 Butter Basted Slow Roasted Salmon - Uhhh completely forgot to post this on here 😅 cause life, and work, and home reno's, and a dog that found her Christmas presents and proceeded to rip them open early. Ya know, life stuff.
So here ya go! A perfect, festive salmon recipe you can not make because let's face it you already figured out your menu but hey, save it for later because it's worthy for any meal and not just a Christmas dinner. Enjoy 💙 -L
📸 Grilled Coffee Rubbed Rack of Lamb - Another easy show stopping main dish for your Christmas table! I use the reverse sear method on the grill so I can get it to that perfect medium rare temp. Serve with your favorite veggies and sides and a nice glass of red.
Hope you're week is off to a great start and you are looking forward to the upcoming Christmas holiday 💙💙💙 -L
📸 How to make a low carb holiday ham - Everyone wants a show stopping ham for their holiday table. Learn how to make a low carb and keto bourbon glazed ham with a few helpful tips and techniques from this updated post over on my blog.
Click the link in my bio or Google Bonappeteach holiday ham for the full tutorial and recipe. 💙 -L
If you ad a side of carrots and celery, this is practically a salad yeah? 🙃
📸 Grilled Butter Chicken Hot Wings - An oldie but goodie on my website. I made these last night and y'all went nuts for it so I thought I'd reshare again here since it's probably been a long time, and they're too good to be forgotten about!
You can grill, bake, or air fry your wings. The trick is in the dry rub and then more added flavor in the sauce. Watch your heat levels when making the sauce so it doesn't separate! Sauce at the very end or leave on the side to preserve crispy skin. All the details are linked in my bio or Google Bonappeteach butter chicken wings. 💙 -L
Bon Appeteach officially turns three today! Well this is a huge milestone for any website or food blogger, I think the overwhelming emotion I feel ultimately today, is thankfulness and gratitude.
I have been a Christian for many many years, but I cannot say that there were many moments in my life prior to this that I had as much blind faith in God as I do right now.
I'm an extremely independent and very driven person. I think it's hard as Christians to give up that independence and have that faith and reliance on God to be in control instead.
I believe truly and whole heartedly that Bon Appeteach is more than just a food blog. It's more than recipes, it's more than keto, it's more than a buisness. It's more, because I know that it's not just this thing I get to do everyday, but a tool to serve the Lord.
I feel really vulnerable sharing my faith so publicly and openly. But when God yells at you twice the words "open book" how do you not oblige? I share this, in hopes that you know that this isn't just a job I do. Yes I love food, yes I'm absolutely passionate about cooking and creating, but I'm passionate more about how this is something that serves others and serves the big guy upstairs.
Why? Because I know first hand that food and diets are complicated. We live in a society of diet culture and frankly, it's a mind F$#& most days. I pray this is a place where you can find food that fits your life, wherever you are at. That the food and recipes are just a tool to help you slow down, to enjoy life, and the people around you.
Today I'm so grateful for this and to God. Thanks for reading 💙 -L

Cheers y'all 💙 we made it to Thanksgiving 2020!!!
📸 I know it's been an unimaginable year for so many. One thing my faith has always imparted on me is that no matter where I'm at in life or what challenges I'm facing, there is always something to be thankful for. I hope you can find that today 🙂. I'm unbelievably grateful for this space where we can connect and share our passion and love for food together. I'm equally thankful and grateful for all those who are working today as well (shout out to all the healthcare workers out there, y'all are God sent right now). Have a SAFE and happy Thanksgiving 🦃 -L

Low Carb Sweet Potato Pie (bars) so fresh, you have to go live with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air 🥧💙
📸 I made these sweet potato pie bars last year and I don't know if I could go back to anything else for Thanksgiving dessert. Now, I do have an incredible low carb pumpkin pie recipe and I love it too (don't get it twisted), but I think if I had to choose.... I'd choose this one. It's so easy to make and I love making it in bar form (way easier to cut and serve). All the details (including nutritional info) in the blog post linked in bio or Google Bonappeteach sweet potato pie 💙 -L

📸 Crispy Maple Pecan Chicken Thighs - My Sunday is flying by and I've been prepping for the week ahead. While I'm very much into getting Thanksgiving recipes planned out and situated, I'm also trying to make room in the fridge and keep my other meals this week healthy, delicious, and easy too! This recipe has been on repeat and takes no time to make (and very little time to prep). Pair it with my fall roasted veggie salad (swipe to see) or use up other veggies in your fridge this week and make room for those 🦃 leftovers!! Grab the recipe link in my bio! 💙 -L

The kinda turkey that gives you fifty shades of gravy vibes 😍🤭
📸 Champagne Brined Spatchcock Turkey - I have been making this version of a champagne 🍾 brined turkey since 2015 when one of my closest chef friends, @asm987 made it for us. Crazy thinking back on the years when I was living in Florida (like 3+ moves ago 😳), but I will FOREVER be grateful to Chef for teaching me how delicious turkey can actually taste and I genuinely look forward to making this recipe every year. This is my inspired take, with a touch of smoke, and a whole lot of yum! Grab the recipe link from my bio or Google Bonappeteach Turkey 🦃💙 -L

Sometimes, it's ok to be full of B.S 🙊
📸Brussel sprouts of course... What were you thinking!? This easy shredded brussel sprouts salad with roasted seasonal vegetables is perfect all fall and would be a great side at your Thanksgiving table. You can eat it served warm or cold, which makes it nice to prep ahead of time. I served it up with a slightly sweeter and thinner version of my keto Carolina mustard sauce, but a simple honey mustard vinaigrette would be ideal too. Grab the details, tips, and techniques for the perfect sprout salad from my link in bio! 💙 -L

I'm going to be 100% transparent here and tell you I accidentally say stank flank instead of flank steak way too often...
📸 But hey, quirky and weird is to be expected over here so hopefully you're not too shocked 🙃. This easy grilled adobo marinated flank steak is a perfect weeknight meal. Feeds a whole family, is super affordable, and makes a great meal prep. Are you adding some of that chipotle compound butter on yours too!?? (Swipe) Recipe linked in my bio 💙 -L
