Get out a tall glass. Add the instant coffee and stevia. Pour about an inch of hot water into the glass. Mix with a knife if your glass is tall and skinny 😉
Add enough ice to the mixture to fill the glass. Pour over milk of choice until glass is full. Stir it up.
Add a splash of half and half or vanilla or cinnamon to jazz it up if you like!
Move to the couch.
Adding a splash of half and half gives this quick latte recipe a rich feel. Same thing with flavorings – vanilla, cinnamon, ginger – add whatever you like.
If you are going to do yoga, btw – this is my current fav. Julia Marie will kick your ass but it feels good. I’m doing this 30 day challenge for the second time and it’s still A CHALLENGE. Exercise is definitely part of staying sane these days.
There is nothing like a Sunday morning and homemade biscuits. This is my first official batch but I have to say, they hit the spot. Not as good as my dear friend, Alisha, makes them but it was my first shot and I am happy!!
I was on a Zoom with my childhood friend’s soon-to-be-hubby and he suggested a couple of recipes. He owns an ayurvedic catering company in LA and I’m constantly battling inflammation with my autoimmune issues. I have found Turmeric, also known as Haldi, to make a difference in my diet. It’s Sunday, so I thought, why not. Haldi Pani, Turmeric Water.
The trick, JJ says, it is to drink it warm. Not hot, warm.
I’ve been cooking Judy’s recipes in Quarantine and this one – this one, is a keeper. Judy’s recipes always taste like home. Most of them have been handed down to her from her momma (one of my second moms), Tami. We used to raid Tami’s fridge after school looking for her leftovers… the pasta with red sauce, the latkas, her pesto ice cubes. For some reason, I think this one is an original Judy – and now Jess tweaked recipe. But not to worry, Judy will surely correct me if I’m wrong. So here it goes: a butter chicken recipe to stay home for.
I will warn you upfront this butter chicken recipe is **spicy**. I will also warn you that this butter chicken is very delicious and may result in cooking so many times that you get sick of it. Proceed with caution.
I’m trying something new – phone savable recipe cards. For the printable version, scroll on.

If spicy offends you, cut the cayenne in half, at least.

2cupsnuts and/or seeds of your choiceI do 1/2 cup nuts + 1.5 cups of seeds
1/4cupunsweetened coconut flakes
3 tbspflax seedsground
1/4tspsea saltmore or less depending on if your nuts/seeds were salted
3tbsp maple syrupor 2 tbsp maple syrup + 4 scoops of stevia
2tbspcoconut oilor olive oil
Preheat oven to 330.
Mix nuts/seeds, coconut flakes, chia seeds, ground flax seeds, cinnamon and sea salt in a bowl.
In a small microwavable dish, combine maple syrup and coconut oil. Nuke for 30 seconds. Pour over the nut/seed mixture and stir well to combine.
Spread the mixture evenly on a baking sheet and bake for about 25 minutes. Check after 20 minutes, cook until golden brown. Watch carefully at the end of the cooking, this will brown quickly.
Remove from the oven when golden brown and rest until it has completely cooled. Store in a mason jar or air-tight container.
Feel free to add in dried fruit towards the end of the cook time (after about 20 minutes of baking).
Freeze half the batch so you don’t eat it all at once like I did!
There is no wrong way to make grain-free granola. Add in dried fruits, mix and match your nuts and seeds. Try honey instead of maple syrup. Get creative. You can eat it in a million ways. I love it as a dessert over yogurt or chia seed pudding. For breakfast, I slice a banana and add almond milk.
Most of us with food allergies also deal with digestive issues. Let me say, without really saying in detail, that this chia seed pudding beats any powder or tea meant to help you digest your food. I have been eating one serving a day for the last month and I swear to you, my digestive system has never been better. Who knew!? Chia seed pudding is now a must in my house. And it is beyond easy.
Make a single serving or a big batch for the week. The flavor options are limitless. I bought a two-pound bag on Amazon for about $11 bucks and it was well worth it.
