LOVE LETTER TO CRAIG
Dear Craig, My LOVE and BEST Friend;
Craig, this is a love letter to you. We have been through so many ups and downs throughout our 14 years of marriage including 2 job losses. But no matter what life throws at us, you have always been my rock and #1 supporter. I have to believe that most men wouldn’t be as cool as you when it comes to all the “dirty work” you do behind the scenes and yet do not get the credit like you should. This business should be called “CRAIG and Maria Mind Body Health” but you never complain about needing a title or recognition.
This love letter may seem goofy that I am writing this on a blog post, but I need you to know that all you do for our family does not go unnoticed; you make sure the dishwasher is loaded “properly” (and re-load it when I do it so dishes actually get clean! lol), home-school the boys with patience and love, answer blog questions and Facebook questions when I am too busy with clients, do the laundry (I haven’t folded clothes in over 2 months!), you make sure my Kale Chip addiction is full-filled by making them perfectly crispy for me, and as well as many other things such as make forms out of sheet metal for these amazing BA-CONES!
I am one lucky girl…
Ba-Cones with Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream
- 12 slices thick cut bacon
- ICE CREAM:
- ¾ cup plus 2 tbs coconut oil (organic butter if not dairy sensitive)
- 4 tbs SKINNYFat MCT oil *needed to create a smooth ice cream
- ½ cup unsweetened almond milk or water
- 4 whole eggs
- 4 egg yolks
- 2 tsp banana extract
- 1/4 cup Swerve confectioners (or 1 tsp stevia glycerite): to desired sweetness
- ½ tsp salt *helps keep ice cream soft
- PEANUT BUTTER SWIRL:
- ½ cup natural peanut butter, softened
- ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
- ¼ cup Swerve confectioners (or 1 tsp stevia): to desired sweetness
- Preheat oven to 400ºF.
- Line a large baking sheet with defined edges with unbleached parchment paper.
- Using cone-shaped metal (we made our own with sheet metal), wrap one slice of bacon around each. Wrap the bacon tightly, overlapping the edges so the bacon totally covers the cone.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Remove from oven and allow to totally cool.
- Meanwhile make the ice cream.
- In a blender (I used my blendtec), place the coconut oil, MCT oil, eggs, yolks, almond milk/water, extract, natural sweetener and salt. Blend until very smooth. Place into ice cream maker and watch the magic happen!
- Meanwhile, make the peanut butter swirl by combining the peanut butter, coconut oil/butter and natural sweetener in a small bowl. Combine until smooth. Cool in fridge until ice cream is almost done.
- Swirl into the ice cream maker for the last 30 seconds.
- Turn off ice cream maker. Store in airtight container in the freezer.
