Christmas Breakfast

Since my kids were born, my parents come over to my place for Christmas.  After we moved closer to them, we’ve split the hosting duties — morning (with the tree and presents, and breakfast) at my place, then we all go to their place for dinner. Because we’re having a …

Primal Egg Nog

So, I decided to take a run at primal egg nog.  It turned out to be really simple, though thanks to a verbal stumble I think it will be referred to around my house as “OG Nog” (note: guttural pronunciation is key; feel free to bellow) from now on. Pictures …

Salad is Boring, huh?

So, I’ve been told that salad is a boring meal.  I don’t think so. This is a pretty simple and straightforward salad with dressing.  The drink is a 20-ounce mug of water (yes, there’s that much salad there) with perhaps 1/2 teaspoon of lime juice. (That handle sticking out of …

Whipped Coconut Milk

This is a pretty decent replacement for whipped cream.  There is a mild coconut taste, but the way I’ve been using it so far (served with berries) that has actually been pretty nice. Ingredients 1 cup coconut milk 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum Alternate Ingredients 1/2 teaspoon stevia 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon …
