Me and my rat terrier, Button, my most eager taste tester.

To ask a question about a recipe, simply click the dialog balloon in the upper right corner of the post.  Post your question in the comment box.  I WILL see it and reply as quickly as possible.

Welcome to Buttoni’s Low-Carb Recipes!   My name is Peggy.  I’m a retired teacher living “Deep in the Heart of Texas” with my husband of 48 years.

I have been collecting recipes ever since high school and have worked diligently to modify all my favorite recipes to bring them in line with a low-carb lifestyle, which I have followed since 2009.  Lost a total of 36 pounds eating this way and have never felt better health-wise.  This website started out purely Atkins in focus, as that is where I began my low-carb journey.  I have since begun to incorporate some Primal Blueprint and Paleo approaches to healthy eating.  I have therefore created a new Primal-Paleo recipe category on the right hand side of the pages and will tag a recipe as Primal-Paleo if I feel it is suitable for those lifestyles (either as-written or with only a slight modification, like clarifying the butter, subbing coconut milk for cream or just omitting cheese).  I will continue to offer recipes that can be easily adapted to fit all 3 lifestyles.  I see all 3 ways of eating as nutritionally sound and very similar.

Those that spend much time browsing recipes on my site can readily see that I’m all about QUICK and EASY in the kitchen.  To be honest, if it takes longer than 30 minutes to put together or get in the oven, I’m just not interested.   I leave the complicated or time-consuming dishes to the professionals.  Cooking should be enjoyable, not drudgery!

I welcome recipe feedback and suggestions.  When I feel a need to make changes to a recipe, whether due to an error, or a marked recipe improvement, I will promptly edit the recipe and update nutritional stats to reflect the change(s).

Visit often and enjoy the low-carb journey with me!

  1. Peggy, I KNOW that I read a recipe somewhere on your blog where you said that the recipe required a REAL pumpkin (or squash, maybe) and that the canned variety would not work. Help? I haven’t been able to find that again, and I find myself with MANY winter squashes (including a sugar pumpkin) and absolutely no idea what to do. It seems that the Internet, in general, prefers the canned variety.

    Thank you for all that you continue to do.
