Smoky Cabbage Rolls

I’m gonna come out and say it. I don’t think cabbage rolls get the respect they deserve. In fact, I don’t think cabbage in general gets the respect it deserves. But I’m about to change all that! Well…at least in my little corner of the world. I love cabbage. Do you? It’s a stand-up veggie. It’s filling. It’s got lots …

Crockpot Curry Chicken

This is one of those recipes that was not my idea originally. Well…wait. I should say that I think very few of the recipes here on Bariatric Foodie were my idea originally. I think all recipes are some interpretation or spin on another recipe. I say that to say I don’t fancy myself a recipe inventor or anything. But this recipe …

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatballs (with Everything Sauce!)

You have no idea. Ok? No idea! I miss cheeseburgers. A LOT. I miss everything about them. I miss the meaty, juicy burger. I miss the melty cheese. I miss the pickles and ketchup and mustard. I miss the bun. Oh, how I miss the bun! And, yes, I even miss the French fries. Sigh. I miss the whole damn …

Citrusy Crockpot Pork Tacos with Spicy Green Sauce

Really the title should read “Citrusy Smoky Crockpot Pork Tacos” but I thought that was just too much. I have this thing about more than two adjectives before the name of a dish. It seems…I dunno…pretentious to me! Anyhoo…this is an August kinda dish. As I write this, it is August. It’s muggy. It’s hot. And I pity the fool who asks …

Lower-Carb Orange Bars

As I munched blissfully on one of said orange bars this morning, I couldn’t help but wonder to myself, “Nik…why do you insist on baking things during the summer?” I mean, sure, we had a cool snap for a few weeks. Then the great flood. (I am starting to forgive Noah for not picking me up…) But now it’s summer. …

Smoky, Spicy (and vegan!) Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I admit, I’ve been sitting on this one a while. Of course, there’s a story. So in my family we observe the season of Lent (traditionally though of as the 40-ish days preceding Easter). I’ve always made a Lent promise, which can also be called a Lenten sacrifice. Long story short: you give up something you like for Lent. Now …

Crispy, Cheesy, Garlicky Cauliflower Tots

So let’s file this under, “technically I could have bought these from the frozen section, but what fun would that be?” Because honestly. What fun would that be? Seriously though. There are a few good reasons to make your own cauliflower tots. If you like a specific flavor to them. (For example, I like a little heat in mine). If you …

Olive Garden Knock-Off: Tilapia Piccatta

Olive Garden and I have a very fragile relationship. But I do have to admit, it’s been getting better. There used to be zero dishes I could order straight off the menu (keep in mind I’m nine years post-op folks). Nowadays there are a few, or at least enough that I now have an Olive Garden Eating Guide available. But …

Low-Carb Lemon Bars: Recipe Fail (and recovery!)

It happens to the best of us, Foodies. Even me. You get drawn into a recipe online, especially one of those really neat recipe videos, and you decide, “I’m gonna make that!” So you gather up all your little ingredients. You set aside time to make this glorious creation. You put your whole heart into the endeavor, summoning every ounce …
