Apple Recipes ~ A Baker’s Dozen!

It’s fall in Wyoming and I have apples on the brain!

Each fall we like to stock up on apples. I often order these by the case from Azure Standard or pick locally from friends. I love to dehydrate apples to have for snacking and baking through the winter but we also enjoy eating […]

My Well-Traveled Sourdough Starter and Favorite Sourdough Dishes

7 years ago in July I caught a wild yeast “sourdough” starter. After babying it along for a few weeks it my little starter became strong and healthy. For 7 plus years it’s served me well!

Over the years my starter has went on several trips. I’ve taken it camping a few times, for […]

Egg Curry

Egg Curry

Yum! This is a recipe I found on Pinterest that really caught my eye. During the spring and early summer our chickens work overtime laying us lots of eggs. Finding ways to enjoy these eggs is always my goal.

The inspiration recipe is Punjabi Egg Curry from My Heart Beats. At that post she […]

Stock the Pantry: Planning for Frugal Soups and Stews

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 […]

Salmon Curry

One day while cruising Pinterest a Salmon Curry popped up. I have a fondness for all things curry and had to check it out. The original recipe looked delicious but had many ingredients that we don’t keep on hand — in fact, some of them I’ve never even heard of! But I […]

Homemade “French” Salad Dressing

Homemade "French" Salad Dressing

We’re definitely coming up on salad season. Salad greens are one of the things we tend to grow well in our garden and find easily at the natural grocery store and, later, the farmers market. Plus once it’s too hot to cook a main dish salad is a welcome meal.

When we […]

Emergency Meals for When the Menu Plan Falls Apart

Pretty much every week I put together a menu plan. When I make that menu plan I fully intend to follow the plan– sort of. While I enjoy the knowledge of having the plan and knowing that if I follow the plan I won’t have to scramble at the last minute trying to put a […]

Almond Meal Pudding- Hotel Room Style

Travel season is officially here! When my family is away from home we still strive to stick with the traditional food style of eating that we enjoy at home. By eating the way we are accustomed we can help reduce any dietary distress and feel our best while we are out enjoying ourselves.

While sticking […]

In my post yesterday, 5 Ways to Afford Real Food on a Meager Budget, I talked about how we ate less meat but still had high quality meals. In this post I share a few of our favorite meat-free meals.

Creamed Onions with Thyme and Sage

This is a dish that we love and […]

Barley Soup

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 […]

Potato and Salmon Patties

This is a tasty lunch that we enjoy as often as we can. Leftover mashed potatoes combined with wild caught canned salmon and an egg or two to hold it all together makes a super easy and delicious patty. These are great fresh out of the pan or served cold making them packed lunch friendly.

[…]

Creamy Carrot and Apple Soup

This is a very tasty, easy and inexpensive soup. It is a great use for apples that are slightly past their prime. My little boy particularly loves this soup. You can adjust the amount of curry powder depending on how much heat you like. I’ve made it with the three tablespoons and I loved […]

Eggs in Marinara

On Tuesday night I watched a new reality TV program. The premise of this show is a blind taste test. Contests have the opportunity to create a one taste dish that four chefs sample. Then the chef can decide if they want the contestant on their team or can send them packing. I absolutely do […]

Super Flexible Stuffed Burritos

While we were on our family vacation this summer we ate out at Chipotle’s. We each had a huge stuffed burrito and while dining Joe said we should eat more burritos. I was surprised by that since we often have some sort of burrito, taco or tostado as part of our Stretchy Bean dishes.

My […]
