Lazy Iced Latte

Lazy Iced Latte

It’s summer. We’re still pretty much locked down. I’m back to my natural state of NOT BEING A MORNING PERSON. This is my lazy iced latte. It takes about a minute to make.

An easy way to get your morning caffine: a lazy, iced latte with almond milk.

Course: Breakfast, Drinks
Cuisine: Latte
Keyword: Almond Milk, Latte, Stevia
Servings: 1 person
Author: Jessica Gray Schipp | #AllergicToEverything
Ingredients
  • 1-2 tsp instant coffee
  • 1-2 scoops stevia extract powder or 4 drops liquid, or sweetener of choice
  • 1 inch hot water
  • ice enough to fill your glass
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or any milk
  • 1 splash or dash vanilla or cinnamon optional
  • 1 splash half and half optional, if you're feeling indulgent
Instructions
  1. 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 😉
  2. Add enough ice to the mixture to fill the glass. Pour over milk of choice until glass is full. Stir it up.
  3. Add a splash of half and half or vanilla or cinnamon to jazz it up if you like!
  4. Move to the couch.
  5. Drink.
  6. Wake up.
  7. Yoga?
Recipe Notes

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.

Sunday Biscuits

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!!

Servings: 4 people
Author: Jessica Gray Schipp | #AllergicToEverything
Ingredients
  • 1 cup all purpose gluten-free flour
  • 3 tbsp butter cubed and cold
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder corn-free
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk +1 tsp white vinegar (optional, makes it into buttermilk)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

  2. Wisk together flour, salt, baking powder. Add in cubed, cold butter. Use pasty blender to mix it until coarse. Knead with your hands about 10 times.

  3. Sprinkle a little flour on your cutting board and roll out the dough to desired thickness (they will not rise). Cut out your buscuits and place them on an ungreased baking sheet. This recipe makes 4.

Recipe Notes

If your butter gets to warm the biscuits will not turn out as well.  You can pop them in the fridge for 30 minutes before baking – or just work fast 😉

Haldi Pani (Turmeric Water)

Haldi Pani (Turmeric Water)

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.

Groceries shopping look from yesterday. Been trying out many styles of masks: N95, the ones I am sewing, N95 under the one I am sewing, coffee filter in the one I am sewing, a ski mask, scarfs. My thoughts are this: like shoes, I choose my mask for the occasion. 🤍MASKS BY ACTIVITY •For groceries and errands I feel safest in my home sewn mask with a coffee filter inserted. I can breathe easier than combing it with the N95. It fits flush to my skin. It stay on my head and doesn’t budge until I untie it. When driving to errands I keep the bottom strapped ties in place and before getting out of my car I tie to top strap. I keep it on until I get home. •For exercise, I like my ski mask – I can keep it around my neck and pull it up when I see a person ahead. I make sure i pinch from the middle so I get at least two layers of fabric over my nose and mouth. •Scarfs, unless you really try to tie them to your head they shift a lot. I do not think a falling mask or a mask you constantly have to adjust is smart (too much fidgeting and touching when in germy areas = germs on your mask from your hands). •In high risk situations or around high risk people, I wear the N95 under my home sewn mask. If I did not have an N95, I would increase the # of coffee filters and possibly add another homemade mask atop the first one. And wear glasses. 🤍 MASK ORDERS I am still making masks and taking orders. I’m now using four layers of fabric and each mask has a slot for inserting filters. If I can accommodate special requests, I will. Elastic options coming soon. But in all honesty in my experience, the ties are more comfortable to wear for errands. Will be posting closeups of my last batch of masks shortly (if you are seeing this on IG, see my @boaatt account for the closeups). If you need a mask, DM me. I’m shipping batches weekly. We are all in this together. #allergictoeverything #flattenthecurve

Before I left school I decided to look inside my “go bag” for emergencies. I found one N95. If you know me, you know I am #allergictoeverything and have an immune system built from shit due to years of steroid use to control my asthma and allergies. It’s hard to breathe using the N95, let alone under the fabric. But hard to breathe has been my life. And now I just think of our frontline, struggling to breathe as they lean over patients they are trying to help breathe. We are all fighting to breathe. May we all get through this with as few losses as humanly possible. I am doing my part. I #stayathome. When I must get food, I will wear my masks not only to protect me, but to protect you. #flattenthecurve and keep it fucking flat. 🌕 And regardless of what the President is willing to mandate – we should all wear masks, scarfs, bandanas, anything in the hopes to slow this thing down. A barrier is better than nothing. To all the nurses in my life, god bless you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. 🙏🏻 • • Want to MAKE YOUR OWN? My pattern and tips are all listed below. I am not a professional but I did do extensive research and tried multiple styles. This one is beginner friendly and backed by doctors and hospitals. • MASK PATTERN I USED Suggested by Kaiser for health facilities if the shortage comes down to homemade masks on the frontline. FABRIC USE 100% cotton. I used pillow cases, almost everyone I owned was 100% cotton- check the labels. FILTERS If you do not have an N95 to wear, you can add filters (or a pocket for filters). Suggested filters include vacuum bags, even coffee filters will add *some* protection. MASK CARE **IMPORTANT** Make multiple masks. You must wash / sanitize them thoroughly after EVERY use. MASK WEARING Should be skin tight, flush against your face. You can add wire or pipe cleaners to the top. PATTERN How to make a face mask/ Using just 1 piece of fabric!

Butter Chicken

Butter Chicken

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.
