What are your thoughts on dairy and meat? I am so confused about it all, there is so much conflicting info out there.
As much as I wish otherwise, there isn’t a simple answer to this question.Pin It
We love smoothies. I use organic plain yogurt, so there is no added sugar there, and I use whey powder that does’t have any artificial sweeteners in it – be careful with labels because there are very few flavors within very few brands that have good ingredients. But we’re able to weed through them and come up with a amazing and healthy breakfast that is easily consumed “on the run.” I have this for breakfast at least once a week, and often for a mid-morning snack.Pin It
A beautiful finish to any festive Cinco de Mayo celebration. Tres leches means three milk – so this translate to “Three Milk Cake.” This actually blends the idea of a three-milk cake from Latin American tradition with a rum cake from Puerto Rican tradition.Pin It
Sometimes when you find you didn’t have great planning and took advantage of a relatively well stocked pantry that didn’t end up being as well stocked as you thought, and when you’re baking a cake at 5:00 in the morning and you have two sleeping toddlers upstairs and a husband in Afghanistan, and it’s not really convenient to run to the store to grab that one pantry item you need right now, it’s nice to know that there is a possible emergency substitution. (heh) This happened to me. As I was making Tres Leches Cake for Cinco de Mayo, I went to put together my “three milks” and discovered I didn’t have any sweetened condensed milk. Normally, I would have just set the cake aside to do later, but the milk needs to be added to the cake while it’s still warm, and at 5AM, there was no way I could do it. So, I discovered a good sweetened condensed milk substitution. The cake tasted fantastic, so I’m calling this one a success.Pin It
Similar to small pancakes, these light, crispy medallion-sized treats are a delight served with honey or petimezi… or with syrup, preserves, or a creative topping of your own design. They can be eaten as a sweet snack, with breakfast, or as a brunch dish. Favorites during The Great Lent, these contain no eggs or dairy products. If served with honey, they are perfect for a Daniel Fast as well.Pin It
Here in Kentucky, we got a couple inches of fresh snowfall last night. After lunch today, I thought I’d give a try at homemade snow ice cream. I’d seen it mentioned a few times around the blogging world, but I wanted to make a healthy version without white sugar. I saw maple syrup used in one of the recipes I read, and thought that would be the perfect flavor to blend with the vanilla and the cream. It was quite delicious.Pin It
I set out with the intent of creating a week of “Christmas Breakfast Ideas” and had the thought of doing an eggnog pancake recipe. Well, the eggnog recipe that I’ve been making since my mom would let me into the kitchen is simply: 1 egg, 1 cup whole milk, sugar, and spices. Since my pancake recipe calls for 1 egg and 1 cup milk, rather than having to go through the extra bowl and beaters to make eggnog, we’re just going to make pancakes with eggnog seasonings.Pin It
This is a great smoothie for breakfast – and sometimes dinner! You can substitute the orange juice with any mix of juices or even an even split of whole milk and plain yogurt if you are not on a fast. The milk/yogurt mixture adds more of a milk shake quality than the juice does.Pin It
