Barney Bakery Blanched Almond Flour

Barney Butter Blanched Almond Flour

Okay, so I tried Barney Bakery Almond Meal first, and was simply wowed by how wonderful the texture and flour was when I rolled my tofu in it and then fried it. (Oh, my! Heaven on the tongue!) But today, we have tried out the Barney Bakery Blanched Almond Flour.

I decided to try to make a loaf of bread in my Toastmaster Bread Machine. I simply substituted the almond flour for bread flour. The rest of the recipe is simple enough, a little oil (I used Bertolli EVOO), some yeast and some water. And let my machine do its thing.

When the baking was happening, the aroma in my house was divine!  Expecting it to have a slight nutty flavor due to the almond flour, I was pleasantly surprised when you had to really TASTE for the subtle hint of nuttiness to the flavor. It was totally AWESOME! (So what does a vegan put on bread? I made an avocado pesto that was to die for! It was wonderful! Of course, the hubby slathered thick butter on his. (Doubt he could even taste the bread! LOL)

My point is, that anything you can make with regular wheat flour, you can make with almond flour. So let the baking begin! I'm thinking blonde brownies for dessert tomorrow, sweetened with maple syrup instead of sugar. What think ye? Sounds yummy!

You can purchase a 13-ounce bag of Barney Bakery Blanched Almond Flour here.  The price is $11.48 a bag, but hurry, right now when you add the item to your shopping cart, you can click on a 20% off discount coupon! That's a great savings!

Be sure to try out the Barney Bakery Almond Meal that I previewed earlier, too! Oh, heck, go ahead and order both! You'll find they are well worth every penny spent! And makes your favorite dishes delicious!

I rate this product with five stars,



I give it a big thumbs up,



and I highly recommend it!

Barney Bakery Natural Almond Meal

Barney Bakery Natural Almond Meal

I haven't been a vegan for very long, just a short three months. But I have already come to rely upon Barney Bakery meal and flours for my cooking and baking needs. And the Almond Meal has fast become one of my all time favorites.

I use this meal when I am frying tofu. I love to cut my tofu into "steaks" after draining the liquid. Then I dip them in my "egg" wash (1 tbsp. ground chia seed with 3 Tbsp. water) and roll them in this almond meal before frying in coconut oil. Who says eating vegan has to be boring?

I've also substituted almond meal instead of cornmeal when baking "cornbread", with fantastic results! (Thanks Mrs. B. for the delicious beans that went with the almond meal bread!)

And I've also dipped my tofu in this, redipped in the "egg" wash, and then rolled it in panko for a crispier version. Oh my! Either way it's delish!

This great almond meal can be used for about anything you can imagine! Sprinkle it on the bottom of your pizza pan, then make a pizza crust from the finer ground almond flour (Yes, Barney's Bakery has that too!) and you've got the start of a delish pizza! Everyone loved the slightly nutty flavor! Load the dough down with some fresh veggies, and homemade pizza sauce, and drizzle a thin hummus paste over all, and you've got a pizza made in heaven, vegan-style! Love it!

You can find Barney Bakery Natural Almond Meal here. It retails for $9.99, and you get a generous sized bag of 13-ounces, or about 2-1/2 cups.

Almond meal can be used for just about any kind of breading needs you have for veggies or meats.  Almond Meal is low in carbohydrates and a good source of protein, fiber, vitamin E, and magnesium. And you can store the bag in your refrigerator's freezer to extend the shelf-life.

Remember that Almond Meal is simply whole almonds that have been ground to a meal consistency.

Barney Bakery is certified peanut-free, it is gluten free, and is certified Non-GMO. So you can feel good about using it.

I rate this product with five stars,



I give it a big thumbs up,



and I give it my personal recommendation.

AmazonBasics USB 3.1 Type-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter

AmazonBasics USB 3.1 Type-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter 

Love this adapter! It is a USB 3.1 Type C AV three port adapter. As you can see it fits three very distinct different devices. And the plug fits into a laptop, not a regular USB port on a PC. I have a TOSHIBA laptop, and it has the Type-C USB, so it's great. I use this adapter to charge both my phone and my Kindle at the same time, using a single USB port! And it works wonderful!

I notice no lag time in charging two devices at once through the single USB port, like I have with other, less capable adapters. So, I am really excited to add this to my stash of tech supplies!

The description also tells us that it can be used in reverse! Something not all adapters are capable of! And you data at some pretty fast speed:  5.4 Gbps; maximum current output of .9 Amps.

Best of all, it is compatible with Windows 10/8.1/8, Mac OS and Chrome; easy installation - no drivers or power adapters required.

You can purchase the adapter here.  It retails for $39.99, and is available with free shipping and handling! (Always a great perk!)

I rate this adapter with five stars, 



I give it a big thumbs up,



and I highly recommend it.

Medeli M361 Electronic Keyboard

Medeli M361 Electronic Keyboard

Since this is only the second keyboard I have ever owned, I have to say I can't give you any real comparisons. But based on its merits alone, I am thoroughly enjoying this Medeli model keyboard!

A full 61-key board with multiple style settings including classic piano. It comes with a music stand that clips onto the keyboard, and an AC adapter, but it can also use batteries for those times you are jamming where power is unavailable.

Two powerful speakers are built into it. It has a backlit LCD display. Polyphony for a grand orchestra backing. 653 voices. There are 8 demo songs. 160 preset songs. There's a port for a microphone (sold separately). And functions to help you learn to play and record your songs!

You will need to purchase a stand and stool separately, but a standard stand will fit this keyboard.

I give this Medeli Electronic Keyboard five stars,

a big thumbs up,

and my recommendation.


You can find the Medeli M361 Electronic Keyboard HERE. It is currently unavailable, but keep checking back as this is a popular sale item!

Oribe Night Ceremony Ultra-Rich Cream

Oribe Night Ceremony Ultra-Rich Cream
0.33lb

I don't usually use creams on my face as I am prone to allergic reactions. But I was already having an allergic reaction to medication when this arrived, and I would have tried anything to soothe and speed up healing to my face.

Enter the Oribe Night Ceremony Ultra-Rich Cream! One application and it felt like someone put a fire OUT on my face! Soothing and comfortable! By the next morning the raised areas were gone. And by mid-afternoon, you couldn't tell anything had ever marred my face!

This is a very rich formula, so just a dab will do you! No need to slather it on. It's light and refreshing when you apply it. Be sure to put it where you have the most signs of aging: eye corners, lip corners, forehead and chin. I also put it on my sagging chin, probably won't "un-sag" the chin, but it makes it feel so smooth!

I give Oribe five stars,

a big thumbs up,

and I highly recommend it!

You can find Oribe HERE. It retails for $115.00, and is eligible for free shipping and handling.
