Raspberry, Blueberry and Chocolate oat milk

Hope everyone has had a super summer and ready to get back to work or school or whatever it is you took a break from! No?! Oh, well, maybe these tasty and colorful, flavored oat milks - raspberry, blueberry and chocolate - can help! I've been taking it easy this summer and not posting a whole lot of recipes, but now I'm ready to get down to business again! My first recipe, just over 6 months ago, was for my favorite homemade plant milk, using a great mix of oats and just a few almonds. ... Continue Reading

Veggs Benedict Florentine with vegan hollandaise sauce

So, yesterday was my birthday  - another year older another year wiser, right? When I read about the origin of the term Eggs Benedict, I had to laugh: Supposedly, Lemuel Benedict, a retired Wall Street stock broker, strolled into the Waldorf Hotel in New York City in 1894 and ordered "buttered toast, poached eggs, crisp bacon, and a hooker of hollandaise."

Facon and (v)eggs

I have a confession to make. I broke one of my own little rules when I wrote the title to this post and recipe. Sorry, about that - sometimes it's hard to come up with a catchy, fitting name.

The ultimate muesli

When I say I've always been a cereal guy, I mean I started out as a cereal kid. And when I say cereal, I'm talkin’ Fruit Loops, Frankenberry, Lucky Charms, Cap'n Crunch… you know, all those wholesome, low sugar, best-way-to-start-your-day kids’ cereals. Ha! Almost got your there, didn't I? Wholesome, low sugar - who am I kiddin'?! It’s truly amazing the stuff that’s actually in these “foods”. First off, sugar. When you think about it, it's no wonder there are so many kids ... Continue Reading

Perfect plant milk – an oat/almond blend

I started drinking plant milk about seven years ago, and I fell for oat milk from the start. While almond milk seems to be the number one type of plant-based milk in the US, here in Sweden, it’s oat milk that makes the largest splash – or well, if you drop something into the milk it will make a splash. Or, uh, ok, forgot the splash part. One great thing about oat milk, especially making your own, is the price. Even if you live a lot closer than I do to California, where something ...
