Holy crap! holy crap! That website! I’m excited!
I’d always heard rumors of people making their own almond milk but I assumed it was a super difficult process. I was pleasantly surprised when I finally built up the courage to make it. It’s really easy, and oddly fun.
To make Raw Almond Milk:
What you’ll need:
1 cup raw almonds
2-3 cups of water
vanilla extract (optional)
What you’ll need to do:
Combine almonds and water. Let sit overnight. Blend together and pour into a jar lined with cheesecloth/muslin/pantyhose. Let this separate the milk from the leftover almond chunks. Make sure to give the cloth a good squeeze when you’re done to get as much out as you can. Refrigerate and enjoy!
- 1 tbsp. butter, melted
- 1 tbsp. white sugar
- 1 tbsp. brown sugar
- 3 drops of vanilla
- pinch of salt
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/4 c. flour
- 2 tbsp. chocolate chips
In a bowl, mix together the butter, sugars, vanilla, and egg yolk. Add in the flour and salt. Mix until combined. Add in the chocolate chips. Put the dough into a small microwaveable bowl, ramekin, or coffee cup. Microwave for 40-60 seconds or until the cookie looks done. Best served warm… Enjoy!
I’m making this…..right… now…….
IT’S LIKE A COOKIE PUDDING
where have you been all my life
uhhh i’m going to make this tomorrow for myself, yes.

Food Porn: Shawarma!
Stack of meat wrapped around a pole! Here are some information about this fast food.
Shawarma is an Arab meat preparation, where lamb, goat, chicken, turkey, beef, or mixed meats are placed on a spit (commonly a vertical spit in restaurants), and may be grilled for as long as a day. Shavings are cut off the block of meat for serving, and the remainder of the block of meat is kept heated on the rotating spit.
It is similar to the dish called döner kebab ‘turning kebab’ in Turkish, and the Greek gyros ‘turned’, formerly called ντονέρ /doˈner/. A related Armenian dish is “tarna”, literally meaning “to turn”.
Shawarma is made by alternately stacking strips of fat and pieces of seasoned meat (beef, lamb or marinated chicken) on a stick—an onion or tomato is sometimes placed at the top of the stack for additional flavoring. The meat is roasted slowly on all sides as the spit rotates in front of, or over, a flame for hours. Traditionally a wood fire was used; currently, a gas flame is common.
While cooking, the meat is shaved off the stack with a large knife, an electric knife or a small circular saw, dropping to a circular tray below to be retrieved. Shawarma is eaten as a fast food, made up into a sandwich wrap with pita bread or rolled up in an Armenian Lavash flatbread together with vegetables and dressing. A variety of vegetables come with the shawarma which include: cucumber, onion, tomato, lettuce, eggplant, parsley, pickled turnips, pickled gherkins, and cabbage. You have the option to get French fries in some countries including: Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, also countries in Europe such as Romania, Germany, Bulgaria and even the U.K.
Chicken shawarma is served with garlic mayonnaise, toum (garlic sauce), pomegranate concentrate, or skhug (a hot chili sauce). Once the shawarma is made, it might be dipped in the fat dripping from the skewer and then briefly seared against the flame. [*]
I had cheap, delicious döner kebab a couple of times from a place near our hotel in Munich. It was seriously so good and the guys that worked there were really nice and friendly in a totally non-creepy way. :)Source: elriz
Summer has officially hit, actually it hit like 3 weeks ago, with its scorching hot 90+ degree F weather so for this week’s installment of #SundaySupper, we are beating the summer heat by bringing you recipes that can be prepared quickly and without the use of an oven. That being said, I bring you a quick and easy coleslaw with a secret ingredient: granny smith apples. I was definitely a bit skeptical about the apples but it actually brought such a nice, refreshing tartness to the slaw that was very well balanced with the lemony-poppy-seed dressing. Plus, it’s such a nice twist on boring old, traditional coleslaw. Best of all, it serves as the perfect side dish to almost anything!
This sounds freaking amazing.
Also let’s be real dinner tonight was some bomb ass shit and surprisingly cheap when I actually went to look at the receipt. Here is a pseudo-recipe, I guess. It’s spicy sausage and green bean stir fry-ish loosely inspired by the Chinese dish of the same type and the recipe in Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything for twice-fried green beans which is basically the same Chinese dish.
- 1 packet Premio hot Italian sausages with casings removed ($3.69 at our supermarket)
- 1/2 lb green beans, washed and prepped (otherwise known as: the three or four handfuls of green beans that looked okay at the store) ($0.50 at our supermarket)
- 1 jalapeno, diced (IDEK, it was like $0.50 for three small jalapenos at the deli across the street)
- 4 cloves of garlic, diced
- 4 scallions, diced
- Canola oil
- 1 tbs sugar
- 3 tbs soy sauce
So Mark Bittman has you deep fry the beans, then take ‘em out and drain most of the oil off, then fry the sausage, add the garlic, scallions, and jalapeno, then add the beans back in and cook them a little longer. I didn’t want to deal with deep frying shit so I just threw some canola oil in the saucepan on medium heat, added the sausage and kept moving it around till it browned, added the garlic, scallions, and jalapeno, waited about a minute, then added the green beans and 1 tbs of soy sauce. I covered it and waited till the green beans got a bit squishy, then added the sugar, some salt, and the rest of the soy sauce. Stir, add to rice, revel in how fucking delicious it is.
Now the beautiful part: the money amount. If you add in the cost of the other basic elements that we had around the house, probably total cost was maybe $8 or $9? I guess? And it fed three people.
Not making any statements about all food is cheaper to cook!!! or the prices in your store or my store or whatever, just, you know. Happy.
