Homemade Whole30 Mayo

Russians consume more mayonnaise than any other population in the world, so I guess it’s not that much of a surprise that it is probably my favorite condiment of all time. Unfortunately, the store-bought mayonnaise options are pretty lacking in quality, taste, price or any combination of the three. You can go the super processed […]

Carolina-Style Paleo BBQ Sauce

Happy National BBQ Day! If grilling, smoking, or BBQ anything is your jam, you probably already know that every region has their own style. I like most of them, but my favorite is definitely that yellow mustard vinegar BBQ sauce the Carolinas are known for. Even before food was really my “thing,” that was always […]

Mom’s Favorite: Top Secret Deviled Eggs

I think my OG deviled eggs recipe went up on SlowCarbSnacktime in early 2013. At the time, I was mostly writing the blog as an exploratory “I’m learning to cook and you can follow along” kind of thing. My skills and my confidence have improved since then, but my deviled eggs are still one of […]

Brain-Fuel Matcha Latte

Super fancy tea powder? Something like that. I had been curious about matcha for a long time, but was hesitant to try for nearly as long. Now it’s a staple in my mid-morning routine, but back then, even when I worked at a tea shop in college, I felt there was some reason to avoid […]

Meal Prep: Meaty Egg Cups

If you venture into the depths of Beka ‘N Eggs, you may find an embarrassing recipe from my SlowCarbSnacktime days for scrambled egg cups. It’s really not a good recipe. I didn’t test it at all until the day I made it for that blog post and the pictures are… well, let’s call it growing […]

Meal Prep: Big Batch Veggies

This is quite a simple and straightforward recipe, if you can even call it that, but it’s a weekly meal prep essential for me! I wanted to get this one up, but moving forward, all of my meal prep recipes will go up on Mondays. I like to use frozen vegetables for most of this, […]
