We go through a lot of almond milk. I use it in all of my baking. I drink it in my flavoured coffee. We use it to make turmeric tea. But the one thing I don’t do is drink it on its own. I find that the store bought almond milk has a bit of a chalky taste, so I use it in place of milk, but don’t drink it like milk. I had read that you could make your own almond milk, so I wanted to give it a try.

As part of my new year’s quest to re-discover healthier eating patterns, I decided that I need to make more of an effort to have breakfast everyday. I have fallen into a rut of just having a cup of tea or coffee for breakfast, but not eating any food. It causes me to get really hungry in the morning and then I find myself snacking or grazing all the way to lunch time. I know that having a real breakfast is going to be key to getting back on track.
The weekend of our move is finally here! I have been talking about it for so long that you may have thought that it had already happened.
When I was starting to pack up our pantry, I noticed that the carton of molasses was almost empty. To me it seemed like it wasn’t worth packing away in a box, but it was the perfect opportunity to look for a recipe to use the molasses I had left.
Well, here is another post dedicated to the art of baking. I am very aware that my last bunch of posts have been about baking, but with Christmas around the corner (only 22 more sleeps!) baking seems to be what is in my heart and mind to do.
When the desire to bake strikes you, there is no sense in fighting it, you might as well give in and start pulling out flour and sugar from your pantry.
To counter the amount of baked goods I have been posting, I thought it would be a good time to share with you a breakfast recipe using coconut flour.
This comes courtesy of the Make it Paleo cookbook (one of the two that I have not packed away). Do not be deceived by the amount of coconut flour in this recipe. Even though it only calls for a quarter cup of flour, these pancakes are dense. Super dense. It made six pancakes (three each), and I was pretty full after the second one. Don’t worry; I managed to eat the third 😉
I was wandering around the grocery store when a fabulous idea struck me! A BLT Breakfast sandwich!! Now I know what you are thinking, “Connie, you did not invent the BLT Breakfast sandwich.” I know, I know, they are available at every coffee and doughnut shop in every city, but I saw inspiration when I glanced at a beautiful head of Boston leaf lettuce and from that small glance, a new breakfast was born (at least in our home).
As I am sitting here, feeling the satisfaction of a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend spent with family and friends, I thought I would share with you my pumpkin pancake recipe. We whipped up a batch of these on Saturday morning, before we started to prepare our Thanksgiving dinner.
