Peripatetic philomaths…focusing on what's really important, eating ethically and cleanly, fermenting, foraging/wildcrafting, practicing herbalism, and being responsible stewards of our land. Sharing our photos, musings, and learnings. Still seeking our tribe.
After a stretch of warmish weather here, the cold has returned. Last night, the sky had that look: thick, heavy, yet cottony clouds hung overhead – a “snow sky”. Though there was no snow in the forecast, we’ve learned to rely on the signs, rather than the weather app…and flakes fell as we began the nightly animal lockup. Only a few, but maybe it was a harbinger – or maybe that’s just wishful thinking!
While looking for a birthday cake recipe, I happened across the phenomenon known as the “mug cake”. Where have I been, right? Seriously, I had no idea that this was even a thing, let alone that it could be made low carb, low sugar, gluten- and dairy-free, vegan…something for everyone’s dietary needs. Since I didn’t want a full-sized cake sitting around the house, I decided to try making a single-serve (paleo if you use coconut milk, gluten-free) coconut mug cake and am hooked!
