Known to us as "Pudim de Leite", it is traditionally a custard made with sweetened condensed milk and cooked in bain-marie. There are different versions of this dessert in different countries and here in the U.S it is more popularly known as flan.  The process of making this flan is very simple!

But this is totally optional, and you can just make a traditional custard without these flavorings. I promise you it is...

Keto//Gluten Free Key Lime Custard and Key Lime Cheesecake

I like it on its own, as a dip for some sweet strawberries, but you can also use it as pie filling and even as a base for some no-bake cheesecake. I of course, had to make all of the above to try it. And it was all approved by the...

Keto//Gluten Free Cinnamon Knots

These little sweet cinnamon knots were just what I was craving to enjoy with my coffee! I originally wanted to give cinnamon rolls a try, but we will leave those for another time. These little treats are so quick and easy to make, it has the perfect amount of sweetness. I didn't make these super sweet, but they can definitely be made sticky sweet, just add more sweetener.   These were amazing slightly warm, fresh out of the oven! But we had it the next morning as well and they were still delicious.                                      Keto//Gluten free Cinnamon Knots - 10 servings What...
