  Cats love butter. One time, Sam read that on the internet. It was touted as a cat hack to make them happy. The instruction was to place a dab of butter on the front paw to keep a cat busy and distracted when other things are going on. While I don’t know if cats really do love butter (and know for a fact that this hack is not legit even though she tried it a couple of times), I can guarantee that Sam loves Salted Butter. I haven’t tried the hack on her, yet… Butter is one of those...

That, plus the fact that the original recipe is far...

For the recent Columbus IN Keto Potluck Picnic, I used sponsor Fleming Family Beef’s ground Charolais to make a Shepherd’s Pie. It was a hit! People loved it! In fact, the Low Carb Revolution Frozen Meals version sold out the next day, to people who attended the event. To make it keto, I layered beef mixed with peppers, mushroom, onions, and green beans with mashed cauliflower and cheddar. I baked the casserole and served it to the crowd of people. Not a bite was left. Make this when you need a hearty dinner. It is stick to your ribs good....
