This is an old post… that never got posted. I wrote it when I was pregnant with Avi… it’s crazy to think that was about two years ago. When I found it this afternoon I was going to rewrite the whole thing and only keep the recipe. But I wrote it then, and it brought(…)
Grain, Dairy, Sugar Free Recipes
Lately my posts have been deeper, more philosophical and not super joyful.. Time for a bit of a change. I’m certainly not always in that frame of mind,although it does seem to be more of a new norm for me!
We eat eggs almost every morning for breakfast. Occasionally my kids will ask for something different which ends up being steel cut oatmeal bake, grits or gluten free french toast. We all do like eggs, but having something different once in a while is nice.
Over two days I was GIVEN 62 lbs of cherries. 50 lbs were seconds and were small Tartarian cherries and the second batch was 12 lbs of large champagne cherries. Both tasted fantastic and were a huge treat! But to process all of these! There were certainly some late nights involved. But Brian stayed up with(…)

Lard!!! LARD!!! You may say… that’s what most people say when they hear we cook with lard. “Don’t you know that stuff ‘ll kill ya’!” “That’s what my mama cooked with back in the day.” “Your a nurse and you use saturated fats?”
I’ve been tired of the same old, same old for lunch lately. I’ve gotten stuck in a rut having the same thing over and over. The kids don’t seem to mind, but I do! Also, I’m really looking for GOOD food and I’m just stora eating lunch to get me through til dinner, but not(…)
Two week ago we celebrated Thanksgiving with our Bible study and we were in charge of the turkey. I cooked a 27lb bird for 16 adults and 18 kids… we ended up with LOTS of leftovers! I’m not complaining! We had some for dinner that week and I froze some for future use!
I couldn’t post this on Thursday or before since I hadn’t made it and didn’t know exactly what I was going to make too far in advance! However… The food was delicious even though I was only responsible for 3 different sides! Thanksgiving foods tend to be traditional in that families have their tried and(…)
I know the CSA was last delivered over 2 weeks ago, but I still have some cauliflower left in the fridge… .and I have no idea what to do with it. Usually we just roast it in the oven until it’s tender and the edges are nicely browned. However, for some reason my kids have(…)
Last night I was lacking in inspiration, but was in NEED of a good dinner. Being prego I have no desire to be in the kitchen, but I REALLY want something good to eat and am always on the quest to find what it is. Chicken sounded good, but drumsticks or on the bone with(…)
I’ve long missed boxed mac n’ cheese… I know… it’s one of the worst foods in the world for you but it is SO good! All those chemicals, preservatives, fake ingredients and food coloring and I still crave it!
I have LOTS of veggies on had after getting our CSA share yesterday, and not a lot of anything else on hand for lunches! I few pieces of leftover chicken and that’s about it… The kids were happy dipping the chicken in some homemade BBQ sauce with some cucumbers and apples on the side and(…)
We didn’t have a CSA delivery last week because of the Labor Day Weekend. So I wondered what I was going to post since we didn’t get our weekly delivery of fresh veggies! I figured I should do something about food and good food at that! Usually Tuesday is my recipe day, but I haven’t(…)
