Home Cookin’ !!! “When Love Calls” ….I might be having Breakfast in a Farmhouse in Flinders, Australia

On the menu:
Almond Flour Pancakes with Huckleberries/Blueberries               Eggs Baked in Tomatoes
Savory French Toast Stuffed with Turkey and Cheese                    Carrot Cake Pancakes
Smoked Salmon and Egg Stuffed Avocados                                      The "Bagel Bar"
Pesto and Roasted Tomato Omlette

So here's the "stupid, irrelevant, but true" story……

Back in college, me and my boys were sitting around drinking cheap beer, eating good pizza, and smoking some, shall we say, "Bill Clinton" cigarettes (the cigarettes that are now legal in 24 states).

And somebody posed the question to everyone…..

"So how do you you think you will know after college, when you meet the love of your life" ?

The guys went around the room with these, in my opinion, pretty lame answers……

…..then it comes around to me, and in the fog of the room, I said something totally out of the box.


[Below] The "Bagel Bar" (more info further down)

I said, "If your woman walks up to you and says she got a job in Australia and moving to a farmhouse out there, and she wants you to drop your whole career and life and come with her…."


"And if your the very first thought, without hesitation,  is, 'Hey when do I need to pack my bags, cause it's you and me to the end baby'……"

…..I said, that's how you answer "When Love Calls", and when you know, she's "The One" 🙂

Everyone in the room stopped and look at me like "What the hell is this dude talking about" ?

In the midst of the "Herbal Experimentation", my mind took me to some desert  farmhouse in Australia, no running water or plumbing, wondering, "Why the hell did I move to this dump"…

But, with the right girl in this modern farmhouse in Flinders, Australia, on the far side of the world…

I can see that vision in my "altered state" back in college making sense, it lines up now …….yep 🙂

The Healthy Chef's "healthy morsel":  So far as bread is concerned, I was grain/gluten free for two years, but have lightened up a bit because  gluten issues may actually be glyphosate pesticide they spray on non-organic wheat, not the wheat itself. I just try to find a quality ingredient bagel (example here)

The Healthy Chef's "healthy morsel":  I eat 20 full eggs every week, yolk and all,  my cholesterol scores are perfect!!!. For recipe above, here is a link for a homemade pesto.  For pancakes, stick to real maple syrup ONLY, or the whole purpose of healthy delicious eating is defeated!!!!

The Healthy Chef's "healthy morsel": As mentioned above, but I'm back to eating occasional bread because  gluten issues may actually be glyphosate pesticide they spray on non organic wheat, not the wheat itself. I just try to find a quality bread (example here).  For recipe below, I'll use coconut milk and get Grass Fed Cheese (I totally avoid commercial dairy)

The Healthy Chef's "healthy morsel": For recipe above, I'm not a big fan of Almond Milk and such, because of all the other "questionable" ingredients and sweeteners they put in there. I use full fat coconut milk. For recipe below, with free range eggs and organic ingredients, the recipe is perfect as it is.

Atlantic Starr: "When Love Calls"

(ENJOY!!!   ….while you take a tour of the home)  🙂

about the crib……

This contemporary take on a traditional farm house in Flinders, Southern Australia, was a custom creation of
Canny Architecture.

The moody interiors deliver a unique composition of textures and colors to take this country home to the next level in style and sophistication.

The clients challenged the architect and designers to incorporate dark ebony colors in the walls and cabinetry, but still present a feeling of warmth, brightness, and openness in the modern rendition of a farmhouse.

Ha Ha! How great to be able to peek into your mind while in a somewhat altered reality. I totally get it. And the pictures of the food. . . OMG. That’s enough for me right there, although I wouldn’t turn down the rest. Instant love affair. Life is good.



Hey Bobbi,

I’m sure you can tell by now I have a “warped mind”. My mind has always had a mind of it’s own. There has to be no less thatn 1,000 instances in my life when I say somehting totally meaningful and true to me, and everybody in the room just stopps and looks at me like I’m crazy. but watcha’ gonna do…..I gotta be me  🙂

P.S. ,

Hey, warped is always way more interesting that “normal”, whatever that is. I’ve always enjoyed my relationships with people who also inhabit the outer limits of reality. The view from there is great! Nice to meet you. . .
Warp Drive – Full speed ahead!



Fortunately, I’ve always perceived my own mind as normal, and every one else around me has a “Warped mind”….
