Food Processor to the Rescue!

So I have to admit, there is a good chance that this post will be of benefit to no one but myself. But I’m going to share anyway because possibly, maybe, perhaps there is another person out there with a freezer full of antelope and venison that may really need this information.

We process […]

Foods in Review: Week of January 22

I am happy to report that our bathroom project is just about finished. The room is now fully functional and we are working on the details. One thing still to come is a new shower curtain. Our tubs/shower surrounds have built in doors and they have seen better days. So that is being removed and […]

Relearning the Importance of Fat

As a young adult I totally bought into the whole “Politically Correct Nutrition” idea that fat was bad, especially animal fat. At one time I attempted to become a vegetarian for ‘health reasons’ and I’ve been on numerous low fat diets through the years.

Imagine my surprise when I first read Nourishing Traditions by Sally […]

Garbanzo Beans and Sprouted Wheat

Looking for a new garbanzo bean recipe, I found a very promising one titled simply Garbanzo Beans and Bulgur. My only problem with the recipe was my lack of bulgur in the house. But I do have wheat that I thought might substitute well if I sprouted it. Boy did it! This recipe was […]

Menu Week of December 5 Plus More

I recently had the privilege of guest posting at GNOWFGLINS. Wardeh was very kind to allow me to share some of my thoughts on preparing real food and working a full time job. If you have any suggestions on how to make Real Food, Fast please add to the comments.

I do have a few […]

Venison Curry over Cauliflower ‘Rice’

I have been wanting Indian food since a new Indian restaurant has opened in town and everyone is talking about it. But our budget is tight right now and the restaurant is quite spendy. So I decided to make a curry and since venison (deer) is what I had thawing out it became a venison […]

A Week Without a Menu Plan

I thought I’d do something a bit different this week. Instead of posting my Menu Plan, I’ll tell you what we’ve eaten after the fact. Why you ask? Because I’ve been super unorganized and haven’t really put together a menu plan for the week. And I’m feeling mostly okay with that- not completely okay but […]

Chicken Fry

I love a good Chicken Fried Steak. I love the crispy coating covering the meat. And I really love to make it even better by serving the steaks with mashed potatoes and country gravy. YUM. Of course, for years I didn’t eat or cook Chicken Fried anything because of the fat. Now that I […]

Tuesday Twister May 25

Tuesday and time to see a few highlights of what’s been Twisting in my kitchen this past week. Wardeh at Gnowfglins hosts the Tuesday Twisterwhere we can share what we have been working on. I love these recaps. It is a great way for me to look back and see how we are doing […]

Quick and Easy Lunch or Light Dinner Ideas

Most weeks I share my menu plans for breakfast and dinner during the week and three meals on weekends. During the week only Christopher (almost 16 months) and I are home. I thought I’d use this post to share some of our typical lunches.

Often lunch is dinner leftovers. That is, of course, the easiest […]

Last month I bought a bag of frozen wild caught Whiting. I was looking for a replacement fish to the farm raised tilapia that we love. The Whiting is […]

> Another quiet week in my kitchen. I’ve still been working quite a bit and I’ve been surrounded by sickies and even succumbed to sickness myself. We were fortunate to even have meals on the table this past week.

Sweet and Sour Venison Meatballs

Sweet and Sour Venison Meatballs were delicious. Kiki said they […]

Sweet and Sour Venison Meatballs

My husband and I both grew up eating wild game. For the most part we had venison (deer) but some elk too. We are still fortunate to be able to enjoy venison and elk and, now that we live in Wyoming, antelope. The thing with wild game is that it can taste a little ‘gamey’. […]
