kitchen monday

So after shooting I did indeed get a lot done.

I know it's blurry but look at Ambrose's fingers. Eating plantain pancakes.

My husband spent his Saturday morning preparing this before heading off for work for our date that night. Have I mentioned he's also really good-looking?

Practical Paleo, as mentioned in the video.

I used a head of green cabbage, two roasted jalepenos, an onion, a few cloves of garlic, two carrots, a few baby beets (hence the colour), and about 4 tbsp salt.

Massaged it all with the salt till liquidy, put a plate & weight on it, moved on to other projects to let it sweat.

you can see the brine starting to rise...

completed rice pudding

put into handy jars for the boys.

fat, still half frozen, ready to cut. I used this tutorial to get started.
simmering away

pizza dough - 1 c cassava flour, 1/3 to 1/2 c water (can't quite recall), 2 tsp salt, 2 eggs.

baked to lovely light bubbly perfection. why don't we hear about this more often as a paleo option?

returning to the sauerkraut - one jar packed, one in process

ooo lovely

a simple late lunch - cheddar, avocado, kolhlrabi sticks with salt.


  1. I'm on the fermenting bandwagon. I have lemons fermenting in my cupboard. They should be ready by the end of whole30. Your kraut looks GORGEOUS. What recipe are you using?

  2. what was the fat simmering for? were you rendering it?

  3. yo man I love your kitchen monday videos!

    and LOL YES I have tried that vanilla nut tea. It's horrible, you're totally right. it's tastes like cardboardy water. Horrible.
