Orange Sweet Rolls Recipe

I know people immediate think “homemade sweet rolls? That a lot of work!”, when they see a sweet roll recipe, and I am not going to lie, this is not a 10-minute slap-it-together-fast recipe. However, it is not a difficult recipe to make either. And once you have made these a few times you will wonder why you ever bought premade, canned sweet rolls.

Orange Sweet Rolls Recipe Notes:

• About the only “tricky” part of this recipe is making sure the milk mixture doesn’t get too hot and kill your yeast when added, and not so cold that the yeast will not activate. This is a great article all about yeast. Pay particular attention to the part about proofing yeast.

• One thing I disagree with in that article is the “wrist test”. That may have been great back before thermometers were prevalent, but these days? Use a thermometer. It is just a wee bit more accurate than your wrist.

• 5/6ths of a cup of sugar is a weird measurement. It is 1/3 of a cup of sugar for the dough, ½ a cup of sugar for the cinnamon sugar.

Keto Sugar Free Jam Recipe

Keto Sugar Free Jam Recipe. This delicious, easy to make, sugar free jam recipe is keto friendly. If you are craving a little sweet on your almond flour toast or keto pancakes, this keto-friendly, low-carb strawberry jam is the recipe you need to make!


This delicious, easy to make, sugar-free jam recipe is keto friendly. If you are craving a little sweet on your almond flour toast or keto pancakes, this keto-friendly, low-carb strawberry jam is the recipe you need to make!

Keto Sugar Free Jam Recipe

This jam is keto-friendly if you have one serving. People spazz when they think about eating fruit on a keto diet (including Hubby who has been doing keto for the better part of two years now), but as long as you do not go crazy eating this sugar-free keto jam and count your other carbs faithfully for the day, you should be good. IOW a serving of this jam will not knock you out of ketosis by itself, but there are no guarantees if you are eating other carb-heavy foods with it.

So, how bad are strawberries for you on keto?

Strawberry, 5.68 (net carbs per 100mg) which is approximately a ¾ cup of whole strawberries servings. Link to article

A quarter-cup of strawberry halves contain a little more than two grams of net carbs—or about 10 percent of your daily limit if you are aiming for 20 grams of net carbs a day. Link to article

Keto Sugar-Free Jam Notes:

• You could also make this with raspberries, blackberries, or cherries and still be within keto-friendly territory (they are all actually more keto-friendly fruits than strawberries).

• This is also diabetic friendly. If you swapped the fruit to cherries, it would be even lower on the glycemic index.

• Some of the sugar substitutes out today do not agree with everyone’s digestive system. There are a lot of these substitutes even my cast-iron stomach cannot handle. Believe me, no one was more surprised than I was the first time I had gastric distress when Hubby made panna cotta using xylitol. When I say I have a cast-iron stomach, I’m not kidding; I can eat nearly anything. But, that sugar-substitute was not for me. Make sure erythritol (which is very similar to xylitol) is ok for your digestive system.

None of this is meant as medical advice. I am not a doctor, and I do not play one on the internet. Please consult a physician if you have any questions concerning your diet or this recipe, so your doctor can better explain to you the benefits, possible side effects, and any warnings about a keto diet, and this recipe.

Southern Tomato Pie Notes:

• You can either use a store bought pie crust, or make your own pie crust. This recipe uses a store-bought pie crust. If you prefer to make your own pie crust versus ready-made, try this pie crust recipe. It is a bit sweet which is a nice contrast.

• You can use: green tomatoes for this recipe, red tomatoes, yellow tomatoes, orange tomatoes – a combination not only give this southern tomato pie different flavors but, it also makes a visual impact. However, there is no reason you cannot use all one type and color tomato.

• It is extremely important your tomatoes are fully dried by the paper towels. I cannot stress enough how important it is to fully dry out the tomatoes.

• After the first bake (10-15 minutes) the crust doesn’t need to be golden but should look cooked, with no raw spots.
