Good May to you all fellow food lovers, low-carbers, web browsers and those who ended up here for other reasons and decided to stick around. Welcome back to Hungry Julie with your host, The One and Only, Julie! It's been a month or so, I do apologize for the delay but things needed to be settled as mentioned in my previous entry. For one thing, we now are the proud parents of a PUG! We adopted him from the North Attleboro Shelter and couldn't be happier. Our falling in love prompted us to find a new apartment since our landlord at the time wouldn't hear it about dogs and then he went and paved over my garden, remember my garden? Pride and joy! Covered in asphalt! I didn't wanted to know what was coming next and so we moved on. Sometimes it's as easy as that.

If you're looking to de-clutter your kitchen there is only one thing to do, take a good hard look at everything you own and try to remember last time you used it. The once a year turkey platter or Christmas dishes should be placed elsewhere and the plastic containers without lids should be tossed. Buy new ones and move on with your life. The attachment we create with certain things is just out of control. I had a little heartbreak when my favorite mug came up with a broken handle during the move and it took my friend to toss it out for me, as I have another million favorite mugs (But this one had my cat on it! =^_^=). Also best to do it when the husband (you're not reading this hun are you?) isn't around to look at the lobster butter melter and say "Oh Julie, we should keep this for next time you get lobsters!" because next thing you know, you're on a mission to get rid of them without him knowing and he's hounding you for lobsters.
Are you still reading? Something about a recipe? Sure why not. I've been mildly obsessed with this microwave bread recipe from Alison over at Keto Incognito, she is a wizard with keto baking and gave me permission to give you guys the recipe, so here it goes:
Alison's Bread (TM)
1 tbsp of melted butter
1 tbsp of water
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
1 tbsp coconut flour
Use a round ramekin or a flat plastic container for this, depending on the shape you want your bread in.
Melt the butter, add water, whisk in the egg with a fork.
Whisk in the baking soda and cream of tartar until well dissolved.
Add the coconut flour, mix it well until smooth.
Microwave on high for 1 minute (I like mine 1 1/2 min because I use a round dish)
Let rest, slice, butter, toast, make grilled cheese sandwiches, in-bread your cat etc. The choice is yours! Variation involves throwing some garlic powder and rosemary in there for dinner rolls or even Stevia and blueberries for a morning muffin, could do with cocoa powder and banana too if you were that kind of person. I've been making egg muffins for myself and it's a wonderful thing.
