This has to be one of my favorite meals, vegan or not. It’s even better in the summer when the vegetables are in season and you can wash it down with a glass of crisp white. By the way, still on the Daniel Fast. One. More. Week. So, here’s the meal. First I make homemade [...]

I threw this recipe together for my mom’s birthday party and everyone raved about it so I promised to share the recipe. That was two weeks ago. At the time I made it my fridge was full of vegetables that I needed to use up and since I fell victim to my own overcommitting nature [...]
Dear Canning, I’m just not into you. I love mason jars, though. Thanks, Jamie I don’t make it a secret that I don’t like to can. I feel like it’s one of those situations where I can embrace technology and make traditional homesteading a little easier without going all the way over to “the dark [...]
Kale Mint Pesto This makes a lot of pesto. It will freeze very well, though, especially if you freeze it in small portions (ice cube trays work great ). This can be used in so many ways. Drizzle over meat (especially lamb), pasta, veggies, soup, bread, crackers…you get the idea. Instead of kale you can [...]
Here is a great way to preserve almost any vegetable – Homemade Vegetable Bouillon. I saw this recipe on 101cookbooks.com quite awhile ago and thought it was a brilliant idea. In fact, I couldn’t believe I had never thought of it or saw it before.
It’s that time of year again when everything is bursting into a thousand different shades of green after a long and cold (and brown) winter. Everything including those pesky dandelion weeds. Most gardners and lawn enthusiasts detest those little suckers, but before you start spraying your yard with chemicals to get rid of them why [...]
I struggled with whether I should share this soup now or later. As in much later. It’s not in season. The main stars are tomatoes, red bell peppers and beets for goodness sake. Unless you have some in your freezer from last season, it’s hard to come by good tasting tomatoes in KC right now. [...]
This is going to be a quick one, as I am in the midst of giving the ‘ole homestead a New Years make over and I have a deadline I’m working against (translation: husband is out of town for one week). Anyways, this soup thing is really working out for me. I made my second [...]
Happy New Year! Since I concluded 2010 with several sugar and butter centric posts, it only seems fitting that my very first post of 2011 is on…detoxing. The holidays are over and while it might seem trite, our bodies could probably use a break from all of the incredibly fun and tasty havoc we’ve wreaked [...]
This was our last week of Cooking Club at Frank Rushton Elementary. The children invited their parents to feast on everything we made for the past month — Homemade Chicken Soup, Whole Wheat Breadsticks, and Cranberry Muffins. It was so much fun! As a “thank you” we received the sweetest books that included pictures of [...]
