Kristen's recipe requires a dairy-free sour cream, so here's the recipe for that:

Dairy-free Sour Cream
2/3 cup avocado oil
1 egg (preferably pasture-raised)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon mustard powder
1 teaspoon garlic, minced (approximately 1 clove)
¾ teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
¼ teaspoon nutritional yeast

Place the avocado oil, egg, lemon juice, mustard powder, garlic and salt in a tall container (I use a 2 cup Pyrex measuring cup). Place an immersion blender at the bottom and turn on. Once the mixture starts to blend together and become thick, move the immersion blender towards the top, until it is well blended. This should take less than a minute! Add the lime juice and nutritional yeast and blend once more. Enjoy!

Loaded Mashed Cauliflower with Bacon & Green Onions
(Recipe from the Ditch the Wheat cookbook by Carol Lovett

Yield: 4 servings Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes

I am a huge fan of pureed cauliflower. I like it even more than the mashed potatoes it’s often meant to replace. With this recipe, I took plain pureed cauliflower and kicked it up a notch by pairing it with bacon and green onions. You’re going to love it!

Ingredients:
1 medium head cauliflower (about 1¾ pounds), cored and chopped into 1-inch
pieces
½ medium onion, chopped
¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter or ghee
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
4 slices bacon, cooked and finely chopped
4 green onions, finely chopped

Directions:
1. Place the cauliflower and onion in a 3-quart pot with enough water to cover and bring to a boil. Boil for 15 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender. Drain the water from the pot.
2. Add the butter and salt to the cauliflower. Puree with a hand blender, or transfer the ingredients to a food processor and pulse until smooth.
3. Reserve some of the bacon and green onions for garnish and stir the rest into the cauliflower puree. Top with the reserved bacon and green onions and serve immediately.

Alison’s Homemade "To Live For" Keto Fat Bomb Brownies

Melt in bowl over pan of simmering (but not boiling) water:
1 pound grass-fed butter
9.7 or 10 ounce 100% good baking chocolate broken into chunks
pinch of salt
Tablespoon of Vanilla

Remove from heat/water
Stir into chocolate mixture - 2 cups of Swerve
Add optional 1-2 cups of pecans or walnuts
In separate bowl, beat 8 room-temperature pastured farm eggs
Very slowly, drizzle in chocolate mixture while whisking vigorously (this keeps eggs from cooking)
Mixture should thicken considerably
Pour into TWO heavily greased 6x8 Pyrex glass containers (I love the ones with lids for storing later)
Bake at 325 for about 25 minutes. brownies should be very giggly when you remove them.
Cool in pans, top with lid, and refrigerate until use. You can also freeze one for later.
For eating - cut into squares. Heat for 5 seconds in microwave or bring to room temperature. Top with whipped heavy cream or cream cheese.
