10-4 Good Buddy!
Yogi Parker – KETO Trucker Extraordinaire – who I had the absolute pleasure of having dinner with while he was delivering a huge old truck load of goodies to Connecticut the other week – has so much cooking-in-a-truck goodness to share that we’ve teamed up to bring his recipes right to your device of choice!
Whether you’re living in a truck, a tiny home, or a regular house, you can benefit from these amazing, innovative recipes! I’ll format and pretty them up later, but for now just wanted to start getting them to you.
Now Yogi was all worried about his photos – and wondered if I would remake the dishes and shoot them all fancy. Oh heck no! Yogi’s pictures are proof that all of this gourmet goodness happened IN A TRUCK!
