Simple Folk Medicine Kitchen Treat

If you have a sweet tooth you don’t have to zone in on the heaviest, calorie, sugary ridden treat you can find.

Most of the time, there is something you can put together with simple ingredients in your kitchen to provide a healthier (and perhaps even more delectable) option for your dessert.

Cottage cheese and Manuka Honey.

Fairly simple and can satisfy a sweet tooth (at least my sweet tooth):

One 1/2 cup of cottage cheese & 1 teaspoon of honey.

That’s it – Enjoy!

WMF Review & Father’s Day Brunch Recipe

Hi Everyone — I have been holding out on the WMF cookware review, but I finally had a chance to use the items that I purchased. I also crafted a Father’s Day Brunch recipe that will make that special father in your life feel all warm, full and fuzzy on his special day.

Now, focusing on the WMF cookware:

I must say that I am impressed. The piece of cookware I tested is sturdy, ergonomically friendly and modern in design.

Trying out the WMF Profi Plus Wisk.

The WMF Profi Plus Wisk helped me create the Father’s Day Brunch Recipe, which is corn bread and crab meat egg bites.

I used corn bread ingredients that were premixed, Bob’s Red Mill Cornbread Mix.

Making the premixed cornbread was easy enough since I just followed the instructions that were listed on the back of the bag, however I substituted a few needed ingredients (ex: instead of using whole egg, I used liquid egg whites and I substituted whole milk with oat milk).

For the crab egg bites I used 2 tablespoons of lump crab meat and 1/4 cup of liquid egg whites (enough for one serving per ramekin).

As most may know, ghee is my go to, so I added a half teaspoon of ghee to each serving of crab egg bite to provide richness and flavor.

Place the corn bread and the crab egg bite mixture in the oven on “bake” at a temperature of 375.

The corn bread may take 25-30 minutes and the crab egg bites take 20-30 minutes, depending on your desired firmness of your egg bites.

Once the corn bread and the crab egg bites are ready, you can serve with the beverage of your choice, but preferably coffee or hot tea since it is for brunch.

The tasty “potassium, protein and selenium” packed result(s)😋.

Enjoy & Happy Father’s Day from Folk Medicine Kitchen!
