How to Make Low-Carb Flax Meal Bread

I call this bread "focaccia-style" because it is baked flat on a sheet pan, and then cut up into whatever sized pieces you want. It is "rough" in texture like heavy whole grain breads. Since it isn't made with wheat, it doesn't have the same kind of grain as wheat breads, but the carb in flax is almost all fiber.  Here's my original recipe for the flax bread, and here is more information about flax.

How to Flip an Egg (Look Ma, No Utensils!)

Almost every morning I have fried eggs with something  (usually over leftover vegetables or with flax toast).  I love that I can do it so fast - by the time the vegetables are heated or the bread is toasted, the eggs are usually done.  I taught myself how to flip the eggs without utensils, and now you can do it too!  It's actually fun, and only takes a little practice - then you can feel proud of your new skill!  (I practiced over the sink until I was sure of myself, but I only actually "missed" once or twice.)

This cauliflower "rice" is surprisingly versatile and easy to make. The flavor is mild, and can be used with a curry dish, as the basis for fried "rice", or many other rice dishes (I like to make a low-carb chicken biriyani with it).  See also: my recipe for this dish,  and also my recipes for Cauliflower "Potato" Salad and Mashed Cauliflower.

How to Braise Meat

Braising is a cooking technique that is perfect for tough cuts of meat such as pork shoulder, short ribs, or a chuck roast (bonus: these cuts are often the least expensive as well).  The connective tissue breaks down to create a succulent dish.  Stews are a type of braise, and here is a demonstration of braising a brisket.
