Almond Flour Banana Muffins | Grain Free

Almond flour banana muffins are naturally gluten free and grain free, and even Paleo, but taste just like “regular” banana muffins. The perfect hearty, grab and go breakfast!

A crowd-pleasing breakfast muffin

Listen, not everyone (in my house, even) loves the taste of almond flour. And when I bake, I like to keep my ideal reader (that’s you!) and my ideal eater (that’s my youngest) in mind.

She doesn’t like the taste of almond flour—but she really likes these muffins. That is a win. 🙇🏻‍♀️

If you add a few diced ripe bananas to the tops of them, like you see in the background of the photo above, they will spread a bit more on top. Try adding them to some, but not all.

They have everything I look for in a muffin: tasty, hearty, satisfying, and they freeze well. That means that I can make a batch, and let … Read more

South Dakota ranch family got pardon; likely got off light at time of crimes

They are not the last cowboy song but they are likely the final full pardons from the 45th President of the United States.

And they are being forgiven for breaking some of the most basic food safety laws after having gotten off pretty light to begin with.

A posthumous pardon went to Martin F. Jorgensen Jr. who died in 2020 at age 95. His son Gregory L. Jorgensen, 69, and Deborah L. Jorgensen, 67, were granted full pardons.

A 14-day jury trial more than two decades ago in January 1996  resulted in the three Jorensens going to jail, but not for long. They were in July 1996. Martin got a 15-month prison sentence. Gregory was sentenced to 24 months and Deborah to 12 months. The jail time and the total of $100,000 in fines for the trio, were all appealed. A review by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the … Read more

Who’s Paying for the Great Delivery Wars?


It’s probably not Uber Eats, Postmates, or Grubhub

2020 was an undeniably big year for food delivery. As the pandemic limited access to restaurants and the government dragged — and continues to drag — on providing financial support for small businesses, consumers were given few options outside of takeout and delivery to eat a meal that they didn’t cook themselves. Not only was it convenient, it was also an ethical imperative: If you wanted to see your favorite restaurant survive, you needed to order out.

Benefitting the most from this disruption to an already broken food supply chain are third-party delivery apps, such as UberEats, Grubhub, and DoorDash. The apps offer infrastructure to tackle delivery, while simultaneously employing suspect practices like charging exorbitant fees to the restaurants that use the services. As we enter a new year, pushback against delivery apps and predatory practices is growing — in courtrooms, … Read more

Perdue exits the building after getting USDA jurisdiction over gene-edited livestock

In one of his final acts before leaving the USDA, Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue signed an agreement ending a turf war between his department and the Department of Health and Human Services. It shifts oversight of gene-edited livestock to USDA.

A short time earlier, Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Stephen Hahn said he would not sign the memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the USDA and the FDA. But, Assistant Secretary for Health and Public Health Services Admiral Brett Giroir, M.D. did sign for FDA.

Perdue, who left Washington D.C. as the Trump Administration’s longest-serving cabinet member, said the MOU clears the way for agricultural animal biotechnology innovations. Perdue, 74, said the MOU “clears a path to bring our regulatory framework into the 21st century, putting American products on a level playing field with competitors around the world.

“In the past, regulations stifled innovation, causing American business to play catch-up … Read more
