Baked Salmon in Parmesan Cream?  Yes, I am serious and this is so flippin fast to make and if you’re living the keto lifestyle, it’s totally friendly.

Oh hi.  I guess I forgot to say hello – yes I still live!  It’s been awhile, I know, but disrupting the spice industry  is tough business and keeps me far far away from my kitchen and especially my camera.  I had a few minutes tonight so I thought I’d whip out the ole Canon and shoot something delicious.  It’s my happy place.  And I’ve missed blogging…and you all.

One of the things that’s changed with me in the past year is that I’ve been off and on keto. I wish I could say that I am all good all the time, but somedays I’m not so good.  When I’m on I feel soooooo incredible.  I’d love to hear what your favorite recipes are in the comments if you’re keto.

This recipe is my new go-to and will be on the menu rotation going forward because it’s so darned easy to make.  I whipped up some cheesy mashed cauliflower and some steamed broccoli and dinner was on the table in 25 minutes.  No kidding. You could also make my Super Creamy Mashed Potatoes in place of the cauli-mash.
