IBIH Ezine – Spring Recipes Issue

This Sping issue marks a full year that I’ve been publishing the IBIH quarterly ezine, and I think the low carb and gluten free recipes in this issue are the best yet. Of course I always say that, and that’s because I always think it’s true!  Hopefully you’ll agree with me after you’ve seen what’s inside!

One of my favorite features of this issue is the 5 recipes using unsweetened Cream Cheese Pancakes as a substitute for pasta, bread, or tortillas. Every single one of them is beyond delicious, and in my opinion, just as satisfying as the real thing! I can’t wait to hear what you guys think of them!

The Lasagna and Faux-tuccini Alfredo are awesome of course, but the Enchiladas were Keto life changing for me, as was the Mu Shu Pork! So many cravings eliminated in this one section! I know you’re going to LOVE these recipes!


Also exciting in this issue are the 5 unique cupcake recipes – we loved all of them, but if I HAD to choose an absolute favorite it would be the Lavender Vanilla.

Followed closely by the Pina Colada (from the cover), and then the Biscoff with White Chocolate Frosting. Oh and the Lemon Meringue is good too….AND the Coconut Lime! They are ALL good!

Sadly, even on Keto we can’t live on cupcakes alone, but don’t worry because I’ve got you covered on what to eat before dessert! I put together a collection of 5 creative recipes featuring fish (you landlubbers can sub in chicken for almost all of these) that will solve your “What’s for dinner” dilemma!

You HAVE to try the Cajun Mahi Mahi with Remoulade – even your KIDS will love it! Feeling fancy? Go for the Coriander and Wasabi Crusted Ahi Tuna OR the Crab Stuffed Flounder (not shown above) with Roasted Red Pepper Aioli! Or the Salmon in Green Curry Sauce! OR the Halibut with Charmoula and Radishes! Make them ALL – you won’t be sorry!

Not sure what to serve as a side dish? Sick of the same old cauliflower mash? Of course you aren’t, but still it’s good to change it up every once in awhile – variety is the spice of life as they say! With that in mind I’ve created 5 Spring-worthy side dish recipes to dress up your dinner table this season.

Mr. Hungry’s absolute favorite is this Spaghetti Squash with Bacon and Spring Vegetables. More than just a side dish, this one can also be served as a light main course – and it’s even good cold the next day (not that you’ll have any leftovers!)


I love that one too, but I also REALLY loved the Roasted Leeks with Parmesan Cream Sauce!  Easy to make and surprisingly addicting!


This Radish and Snap Peas Salad is also beautifully fresh and easy to prepare, and it keeps great for several days in the fridge!

Want to keep it simple? I’ve also included 5 of my favorite “go to” sauces and dressings, which can turn any plain piece of protein or pile of veggies into the best salad you’ve ever tasted – or even a fantastic main dish.


So? You hungry yet? I definitely am….and I know I have some cupcakes around here somewhere….

  1. Kim K says

    Hello, I was just wondering if it’s possible to get the e-zines on my kindle versus just on my gigantic laptop? Thanks!

    • says

      Without the lavender blooms they are just vanilla cupcakes – still good but not as complex. If there is a World Market or Cost Plus near you they sell them in a small packet for about $2. Totally worth it if you can find them!

    I think I did something wrong with the meringues for the lemon cupcakes. They came out more like oopsie rolls and had an eggy taste. Should they have been crisp? Mine were spongy. A tiny bit of yolk got in by mistake – I wonder if that’s the issue?

    • Crafty Witch says

      If I understand things correctly, yes, even a tiny amount of yolk will ruin a meringue. Have you tried the soda bottle method of separating eggs? Basically, you suck the yolk into a clean empty soda or water bottle leaving the white behind. I read somewhere recently that a turkey baster bulb works too.

      • says

        Correct, sorry I didn’t get back to this sooner! Also if they cook too long they can get overly firm and spongy – next time you can always omit the meringue altogether, or replace it with a dollop of whipped cream instead!

  3. Heather says

    I’m hoping you have a suggestion on where to purchase cacao butter. I was going to order from Amazon, but there are so many brands I’m not sure to get.

    • says

      The only place I can find it is Amazon since I live in the sticks Heather, but if there is a Whole Foods near you they might have it. The brand I purchased is this one and I really liked the fact that it was in the disks rather than a block because it was easier to measure out! Hope that helps!

    Hi Mellissa
    I love your e-zines, I have the entire collection. Can you tell me if I can refrigerate the cream cheese pancakes and then reheat them in the microwave? I am going to start the 3-day diet and I need recipes I can take to work.
    Thank you,
