ANIMAL ADDICTS

Many vegans on social media act like recovering addicts needing to sponsor someone in order to stay vegan. They first pick their families. When that doesn’t work they go outside the family.  That’s when they get desperate and start abusing others.  That’s when they fall. These are the vegans nobody likes. They’re too needy. Animal-eatingContinue reading “ANIMAL ADDICTS”

Beer Nut And Walnut Butter Spread

BEER NUT AND WALNUT BUTTER SPREAD Of course this is a high fat spread, but compared to others it’s more nutrient and fiber dense.

I like rustic for this,Continue reading “Beer Nut And Walnut Butter Spread”

RE: Preparation Time For Recipes

It takes a lot longer to develop a recipe than it does to replicate a recipe. For that reason the prep times are not given. To estimate the time for each procedure after the fact would not be accurate enough for my tastes. The number of ingredients aren’t necessarily an indicator of preparation time.
