Nut Milk

Starting the anti-inflammatory diet I have been mostly just drinking water, but occasionally almond milk or coconut milk. I don't really like the texture of most of them, and they generally have added sugar and flavor, so when one of my friends mentioned that she makes her own almond milk I was intrigued. I had...

Curry Crackers

I forgot to take prep pictures, but will add next time I make them, which is about weekly.
