Keto Craig’s Campaign Continues

The journey to 236 is on the way… My keto journey started on November 4, 2021. I remember the date clearly because I had gone on a carb binge the week before, wanting one last taste of those things I love before giving them… Continue Reading “Keto Craig’s Campaign Continues”

Craig’s Kitchen: Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Quick, simple, and easy to make in about an hour! Too many recipes SAY that’s the case, but this one really is. It’s also more like assembling a robot than actual cooking. You’ll see what I mean. This tasty dish is simple but delicious… Continue Reading “Craig’s Kitchen: Chicken Enchilada Casserole”

Craig’s Kitchen: Chocolate Chip Pan Cookies

The smell of these alone will make your saliva glands start to flow! The rich, chocolate goodness melts in your mouth. The brown sugar batter dances around on the tip of your tongue. And as you bite into each cookie, the buttery flavor swirls… Continue Reading “Craig’s Kitchen: Chocolate Chip Pan Cookies”

In Search of the Perfect Doughnut

Craig’s Kitchen: Mochiko Chicken (Japanese Chicken Nuggets)

Flavor comes in bite-sized nuggets. Chicken nuggets to be precise. Japanese chicken nuggets.

Craig’s Kitchen: Seven-Layer Dip

Seven layers of yummy goodness. I love a good dip.  Mom’s classic French Onion Dip made with sour cream and some old-fashioned Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix was always a staple.  Something about that combination of savory onion flavor with cool, smooth sour cream on… Continue Reading “Craig’s Kitchen: Seven-Layer Dip”

Craig’s Kitchen – Simple Fried Rice

No revelations here. What you’re about to read will not shock you.  It will not change your life.  But maybe it will offer a new or different way of making fried rice!  It’s a favorite of my family and I thought I would share… Continue Reading “Craig’s Kitchen – Simple Fried Rice”
