As I’m writing this post it’s late-June and I have a pot of soup on the stove for supper. Two days ago it was quite warm and more salad weather than soup weather but last night a storm came through and has left a cold dreary day behind. Once again perfect for […]
A few years ago I discovered The Prudent Homemaker’s website. I love this site for the huge amount of frugal ideas. Brandy and her family built up food storage when times were good and had it to fall back on when times were not as good. She shares many recipes featuring her food storage plus […]
Homemade broth is an important part of a real/whole/traditional foods diet. Making broth was one of the first things I started doing when we began to transition to real foods. The homemade broth is wonderful for making soups, cooking beans, making sauces, etc. Broth is a protein sparer which allows you to consume small amounts […]
After a summer filled with travel and lots of discussion my family is going to start on GAPS Intro. Last October my husband, Joe, and I did GAPS. The GAPS diet is based on the book Gut and Psychology Syndrome by Natasha Campbell-McBride, MD. The GAPS goal then was to help me with some issues […]
Purple Chicken Stir-Fry! Such a wonderful and adaptable dish! My daughter dubbed this Purple Chicken Stir Fry since the beet stems made everything a lovely purplish color. Sometimes I’ll leave the beet stems out and then it’s just a regular old stir fry and still delicious!
Game plays a prominent role in our meal plans. Living in Wyoming we enjoy what seems to be an abundance of antelope and venison. In my area, the game feasts primarily on sage brush and prairie grass. Having several wonderful ways to cook game is a quest I am on. Our absolute favorite is to […]
This is a delicious way to finish off a pot of beans. Usually by the end of my bean pot there are still some beans in it with quite a bit of the cooking liquid. Since I cook the beans in broth this is still a very nutrient dense liquid. We’ve talked about the […]
A few days ago I shared a video from the Weston A. Price Foundation titled Tips for Limited Time and a Limited Budget by Sara Pope. In this video it is mentioned that by incorporating large amounts of broth into the diet, meat can be consumed only once or twice a week with good […]
We enjoyed a delicious Enchilada Casserole last night. I think one of the things that made it so good was the Enchilada Sauce. I found a recipe last week to make the sauce out of chicken stock. I love any way to be able to add a good broth to a meal and this really […]
I had a turkey in the freezer that we did not use for Thanksgiving. I admit to being slightly turkey challenged. I’ve roasted a few of them over the years but that is about the extent of my turkey experience. I’m great at using the bird post roasting but had no idea of other ways […]
It is always nice during a busy time to know that my freezer holds the basic components for a wonderful meal. I love being able to pull a few things out of the freezer in the morning and then in the evening spend a couple of minutes on assembly and Voila! We have a wonderful […]
You ever have a night when nothing sounds good? Maybe the menu plan you so diligently made just doesn’t quite work for that night? Or maybe you just didn’t bother to make a menu plan for the week. Sometimes I have those kind of nights. I’ve been on a quest lately to try to find […]
