Monday, May 17th – Sunday, May 23rd Book Club Menu

I am not a nutritionist or a chef. I’m just a mom that knows what flavors I like and that my family likes. The recipes that I’m sharing this week are some that David has made for dinner. Others are taken from this cookbook which is my May Book Club Pick. I will share the changes or additions I’ve made to the recipes and what page the recipes are on. As a blogger I understand that the author of the cookbook makes her money/livelihood through book sales. I will not share the recipe on my blog. I hope my readers will understand. This is a character decision for me. Keto Instant Pot is the May book and it’s not only a beautiful book but it has all kinds of recipes. I will be using it for the entire month of May. I hope you decide to join my book club as we cook our way through gluten free and low carb recipes. Sometimes we even have wine! ! This is just a sample menu from the May book. Feel free to cook your way through the cookbook but please tag me in your pictures! I LOVE to see your beautiful presentation!

Set silicone egg cup in the water with the egg already in it. Make sure to really spray the silicone cup so that the egg doesn’t stick! Turn heat down to medium. Boil for 5 minutes covered. Remove egg cup with a slotted spoon. I put my sausage patty on top of the egg and then flip over! It makes it a little easier
