Bacon (nitrate free, organic, cream of the crop.. whatever you want to use): I use about 5-6 slices.
Bok Choy
Mushrooms
Strawberries: About 5 or 6.
What do I do?

Well avid blog reader, it’s really not that hard so don’t sweat it!

Throw some EVOO or coconut oil into a frying pan. Heat it up!
Slice up the bacon into small pieces – I cut them about 0.5 inches – and put it in the frying pan.
While the bacon is sizzling and making your home smell like sunshines and rainbows, start cutting up your strawberries. I dice mine up. Gets the mix effect just perfect.
Let the bacon come to a nice sizzle and your preferred cooking darkness and crispness. I like mine crispy. Especially with this dish.
In goes the bok choy and mushrooms. Stir it up, let it sizzle.
And onto your plate! Mix those badboys together! Voila!
Now EAT! And moan and groan at this beautiful breakfast of rainbows you are consuming!"

Gluten Free, Grain Free Cereal |

Gluten Free, Grain Free Cereal |: "Gluten Free, Grain Free Cereal
Posted on March 5, 2011 by Mari Stock
This cereal is so yummy! And very easy to make. Josh and I love to put fresh or frozen berries in a bowl sprinkle some of this cereal on top and poor coconut milk over it all. Yum! And when I need just a little sweet I either use raw honey or grade b maple syrup and drizzle just a little on top! So if you are missing cereal try this out!

You will need:

2 1/4 cups almond flour

4 tbsps. butter (softened)

2 eggs

1 tbsp. cinnamon

1/2 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice

1 tbsp. coconut flour

First preheat your oven to 350. Then in a large bowl add all the above ingredients. Next mix everything together, I use a fork, until well combined. Line a large baking sheet (bigger than 9×13 if you have it)with parchment paper. Place the mixture into the middle of your pan and press it out until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Cook for about 20 minutes. Mine was still a little soft in the middle so I pulled it out at 20 minutes let it cool and then broke it into pieces and placed it back in the oven for about 5 more minutes. That took care of it! You want it crunchy but not burnt of course! Just break it up into whatever size pieces you want. I store it in a baggy once it is completely cooled. So delicious!"

Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread — Joy the Baker

Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread — Joy the Baker: "Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread

Makes: one 9×5x3-inch loaf

Recipe adapted from HungryGirlPorVida

Print this Recipe!

For the Dough:

2 3/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 1/4 teaspoons (1 envelope) active dry yeast

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 ounces unsalted butter

1/3 cup whole milk

1/4 cup water

2 large eggs, at room temperature

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For the Filling:

1 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg

2 ounces unsalted butter, melted until browned"

In a large mixing bowl (I used just the bowl of my stand mixer) whisk together 2 cups flour, sugar, yeast, and salt. Set aside.

Whisk together eggs and set aside.

In a small saucepan, melt together milk and butter until butter has just melted. Remove from the heat and add water and vanilla extract. Let mixture stand for a minute or two, or until the mixture registers 115 to 125 degrees F.

Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients and mix with a spatula. Add the eggs and stir the mixture until the eggs are incorporated into the batter. The eggs will feel soupy and it’ll seem like the dough and the eggs are never going to come together. Keep stirring. Add the remaining 3/4 cup of flour and stir with the spatula for about 2 minutes. The mixture will be sticky. That’s just right.

Place the dough is a large, greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and a clean kitchen towel. Place in a warm space and allow to rest until doubled in size, about 1 hour. *The dough can be risen until doubled in size, then refrigerated overnight for use in the morning. If you’re using this method, just let the dough rest on the counter for 30 minutes before following the roll-out directions below.

While the dough rises, whisk together the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg for the filling. Set aside. Melt 2 ounces of butter until browned. Set aside. Grease and flour a 9×5x3-inch loaf pan. Set that aside too.

Deflate the risen dough and knead about 2 tablespoons of flour into the dough. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rest for 5 minutes. On a lightly floured work surface, use a rolling pin to roll the dough out. The dough should be 12-inches tall and about 20-inches long. If you can’t get the dough to 20-inches long… that’s okay. Just roll it as large as the dough will go. Use a pastry brush to spread melted butter across all of the dough. Sprinkle with all of the sugar and cinnamon mixture. It might seem like a lot of sugar. Seriously? Just go for it.

Slice the dough vertically, into six equal-sized strips. Stack the strips on top of one another and slice the stack into six equal slices once again. You’ll have six stacks of six squares. Layer the dough squares in the loaf pan like a flip-book. Place a kitchen towel over the loaf pan and allow in a warm place for 30 to 45 minutes or until almost doubled in size.

Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F. Place loaf in the oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the top is very golden brown. The top may be lightly browned, but the center may still be raw. A nice, dark, golden brown will ensure that the center is cooked as well.

Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 20 to 30 minutes. Run a butter knife around the edges of the pan to loosen the bread and invert onto a clean board. Place a cake stand or cake plate on top of the upside down loaf, and carefully invert so it’s right side up. Serve warm with coffee or tea.

1 yellow onion, diced

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 bunch cilantro

Juice from 1 lime

1 jalapeno

1 tablespoon cumin

½ teaspoon smoked paprika

½ teaspoon black pepper

Sea salt to taste"

Cut pork roast into ½ inch cubes. Heat the coconut oil over medium high in a large soup pot and add the pork once the oil is hot enough that it sizzles when you add a piece of meat. Brown the pork pieces for 4-5 minutes and remove the pork from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add the onions and garlic to the oil and pork drippings and sauté for 7-10 min or until the onions start to brown. Turn the heat down a bit and add the cumin, paprika and black pepper to the onions and garlic and mix well (it will be kind of pasty). Add the chicken broth to the onion mixture and mix well, making sure to scrape all the goodness off the bottom of the pan. Add the pork back to the soup pot into the liquid and bring to a boil. Turn down to low. While the meat simmers, peel and wash the tomatillos. Dry them well and in a large skillet over medium heat char them along with the jalapeno turning often, until the skins start to blacken (about 10 minutes). Place the charred tomatillos, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime juice into a food processer or blender and blend until smooth. Add to the pork in the soup pot and simmer for 2 to 2 ½ hours or until the pork is fall apart tender. The sauce will reduce down and become thicker over the course of the cooking process. Serve with sliced avocado and cilantro for garnish.

Whole Wheat Molasses Bread — Joy the Baker

Whole Wheat Molasses Bread — Joy the Baker: "Whole Wheat Molasses Bread

makes one 8×4 or 9×5-inch loaf

recipe from the New York Times

Print this Recipe!

1 2/3 cups buttermilk or plain yogurt

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1/2 cup cornmeal

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup molasses"

Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and flour an 8×4 or 9×5-inch loaf pan. Non-stick baking spray works well too.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, salt and baking soda.

In a small bowl whisk together buttermilk or yogurt and molasses.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and fold to combine. The batter will be slightly thick, but not dry. Spoon batter into prepared pan and place in the oven. Bake loaf for 45 minutes to an hour. Depending on how evenly your oven bakes, you might want to rotate the loaf in the middle of baking. Be careful though. Don’t manhandle it too hard or it might deflate.

When a skewer inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, remove the loaf from the oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes in the loaf pan. Run a butter knife along the sides of the pan and carefully invert onto a wire rack.

Loaf will keep, well wrapped at room temperature for up to 4 days.
