  1. If you want to be taken seriously, you need to tinker with these recipes..lard? Seriously?

    • When you use lard from healthy sources (grass fed animals), it is an extremely healthy option. If you believe spray pam, canola and other vegetable oils are the answer, I encourage you to do research on Chris’ site as well as other alternative sources to our “wonderful” government indoctrinated “healthy” food choices. You’ll be much healthier, loose weight and feel better.

    • Lard is good for you. It’s tasty, too. Thinking otherwise – re good – is buying in to commercial profiteering propaganda advertising. One reason for the obesity is the horrid advertising content re fats, including vegetable oils – see Adele, and animal fats,
      What is used is a privatized, perverted form of fat, for example, margarine. But then all those other hydrogenateds and otherwise deformed contents, like coffee ‘creamer’ – a term that would be outlawed in a just society.
      Do you know that fats sheath your nerves – including in your brain, – just for instance…?
