Condiments

I needed some mayonnaise today and wanted something a little different. It turned out great.









1 room temperature egg

1/2 c extra light olive oil 

1/2 c coconut oil

1 tbsp 1/2 pear vinegar  1/2  white balsamic vinegar

1 level tbsp Inglehoffer stone ground mustard

1/2 tsp Pink Himalayan salt

Wisk or blend egg with vinegar, mustard and salt. Slowly trickle oils into egg mixture while blending. Be patient and keep it to a thin trickle, it will emulsify but it takes awhile. Enjoy!

New Taste!

I recently came by some persimmons, my good friend Melody, that owns the property where they grow, was out of town so I ask ask her trusty dog (Porkchop) if I could pick some. I knew nothing about persimmons so I had to look them up, it's a good thing I did because they are very bitter if you don't let them ripen fully. Well now I'm hooked they are so sweet and delicious. Today I had them with greek yogurt and nuts and berries.I also tried my newly acquired Paleo Bread from http://julianbakery.com. I bought Coconut and Almond, I had the coconut (toasted) with my fruit yogurt. Delightful breakfast.

Snack!!

I haven't posted in soooo! long, ever since I lost my camera. My camera has been found, yay! and I tried a new recipe for graham crackers, so I will dust the rust from my blogging skills and see if I can come up with a decent bit of information.

I found a recipe on  a wonderful blog @......Eat The Cookie  http://eatthecookie.wordpress.com/2010/07/25/honey-graham-crackers/

They were a little soft, so I need to tweak them a bit, but they were very good.

Ready for the oven

Snack with coconut manna










 
With any luck I will post some more wonderful recipes and ideas. I love this primal life!

Great Breakfast!

An interesting thing about being Primal/Paleo, you meet the most interesting awesome people. I found
Marina MapuHa from: Marina's Primal/Paleo Cooking ,
so when she posted Paleo Crepes I knew It was  the perfect recipe for me.  If you know me, you know I'm a Hawaiian at heart.You can take the Wahine out of the Islands but you can take the Mango away from her, for she will seek it out.This is where the crepes come in, a new way to enjoy my mango. Of course they turned out magnificent so I will be trying a variety of different filling in them. Here is Marina's recipe as she posted it with my notes included.
Paleo Crepe Recipe

6 eggs
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp coconut flour
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp sea salt

Place everything into blender and blend it for 60 seconds. Let sit for at least 30 minutes.
Heat a crepe pan over medium heat and add enough coconut oil to coat the pan. Add a laddle full of batter to the pan. Swirl to coat the pan thinly. Let cook until brown and carefully flip. If they are not holding together for you add another tbsp of coconut flour to the batter.


Ke Keiki's review:
I cut this recipe by half and didn't use honey. The result was six, 6 inch, phenominal crepe's.
 I did sprinkle some with cinnamon before flipping them.



 Mahalo Marina, crepes and I will be spending many mornings together.

Little changes.

I love how you can make a little change and get huge results. Today I decided to sprinkle garlic pepper on my bacon before cooking. Wow!, fantastic. I also had my fruit in a special bowl that I picked up at a pottery sale.


Just a few changes made breakfast time special.Do something good for yourself every day!

Paleo Mousse (CC)

My Amanda Bowl Mousse. A used to be neighbor and friend made these lovely bowls and let me pick some out to keep, so when I made my primal mousse I had to use this one. I got the recipe from: http://www.cavemanbistro.com. I followed it to a T, and it was wonderful. P.S. I think the bowl made it all the more special.

Ribs

 I had decided to have ribs for Memorial Day, and thought, you can't have ribs without potato salad. That would be fine for the family, but maybe I could fix sweet potato salad for myself. What! No sweet potatoes? I did have some butternut squash, why not? Hence, my butternut squash salad was born.



For the Ribs:
I took so long picking out the sides I was running out of time. I decided to Pressure cook the ribs with a dry rub and then put them under the broiler for about 10 minutes. They were awesome and so tender.

For the salad:
I cubed and steamed the butternut squash, and hard boiled an egg, while they were cooking I whipped up some mayo. Then I mixed it together with a little pickle relish and some salt and pepper.
