Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook by Angie Alt

It seems like just yesterday that I started to cook some recipes from Angie Alt's Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook, but it was actually September.  Angie graciously provided me with an electronic copy of her cookbook for review and I have since bought the paperback copy myself as penance for being so slow to review the book. I've now cooked four recipes from the book and I do believe I'm ready to do my summary post.  I'd thought about doing one more recipe, but I thought this would be a nice way to end the year.  Spoilers, but I'll probably be reviewing a few more recipes from this book in the future.  Let's take a look at what I've made so far.

Presto Percolator Product Review & TPR Coffee Mug Giveaway

A little over a year ago, if you asked my friends and coworkers if I liked coffee, the answer would be a resounding yes and my brewer of choice was a Keurig.  I had Keurig machine and home and at work.  As I started to examine my use of plastics in the kitchen, I couldn't ignore that my Keurig and really any automatic drip machine suffer from the same problem, hot water and plastic.  It seemed silly to get rid of all my plastic kitchen storage but then continue to use the Keurig machines, so I looked for alternatives.  A good friend of mine told me about his percolator.  He and his wife use it for tea and he had nothing but praise for it.  What's great about a percolator is that you can buy a model that is all stainless steel on the inside.  No more plastic!  Yay! I bought and have used the machine for about a year, so I'm ready to review it.  If you indulge me, at the end, you can enter a giveaway to get a The Paleo Review mug!
