  • The Non-Recipe Recipe Thread

    Did you ever have an idea for food you wanted to share, but didn't think it warranted its own recipe thread? Maybe you don't measure when you cook. Maybe you just wanted to share that adding a raw scrambled egg, some nori, and some lemon to your bone broth made a pretty dang good approximation of hot and sour soup.

    But you thought, heck, that doesn't warrant its own thread. So that's what this thread is for. Taste combos, free hand recipes, anything you might do that isn't quite a formal recipe.

    Mine: two shots of room temp tequila in a cup of Bulletproof Coffee with some sweetener may not be breakfast faire (that's a whole 'nother board), but it's an interesting take on Mexican Coffee. Hint: blend the butter into the coffee first, then add the sweetener and tequila while continuing to blend.



    C'mon, tell us what you do when you're just puttering around the kitchen.

      Whatever veggie is in the fridge and meat in hot skillet with some butter and tallow or maybe coconut oil... food, what ever meal is closest!

        I added some 5-spice to my butter coffee this morning. Kind of awesome (no alcohol).

          Brie goes really well with pomegranate.

            Brie goes well with everything. Try it with strawberries and pepper jelly. Heaven.

                  A scoop and a half vanilla flavored protein powder, 1/2 cup coconut milk and some fresh or frozen strawberries + couple of ice cubes make an awesome, thick smoothie. Sort of like milk shake, but healthier. I am yet to try it with some almond butter mixed in.

                    Grind a cardamom pod with your coffee beans.

                    Coconut flakes toasted in butter or coconut oil, sprinkle it on top of sliced banana and if you have some dark chocolate, chop it up and add that too.

                      Adding a little cayenne pepper to homemade chocolate ice cream is delish!

                          Cream cheese or soft goat cheese in scrambled eggs. Put the cheese in the hot pan after any veggies you've sauteed and before the beaten eggs. If no veggies, then before the beaten eggs. Let it melt a bit. Add eggs. Cook as you normally would. Creamy delicious goodness.

                          I purchased cocoa (thank you Dr. Bork Bork) today and already have cayenne pepper, so I may try hot cocoa with cayenne pepper tonight. Chili later in the week fersure.

                              Left over sweet potatoes, chunked out of skins, into a frying pan with a large amount of melted butter. Fry until crispy brown, then sprinkle with cinnamon. Serve hot.
