Sausage Potato Bake

I love the convenience of casseroles for our family. With so many mouths to feed, a casserole sometimes is just perfect. This simple casserole is one that goes fast in our house and everyone in the family is able to make it (even the youngest in our house)

From our Homestead – All About Tomatoes

Late spring in Northern Arizona is one of my favorite times of the year. It means that I can plant tomatoes. And I LOVE tomatoes! Beside garden peas, tomatoes are one of my favorite summer garden veggie. I love to go out and pick and eat them right off of the vine. Heirloom tomato plants are varieties that are open-pollinated (meaning…

Blueberry Muffins

Finding some simple tasties when stuck at home can be difficult. I was looking in the freezer and did find some frozen blueberries. They were something that I got on bulk last season and I threw into my freezer so that I could put through my freeze dryer later, but I hadn’t gotten that far. My freeze dryer has been…

Sourdough – Making bread without adding yeast

Reactivating Your Sourdough Starter – Using Dried Starter Add 1 tablespoon (15 grams) of dried starter chips, 1/4 cup (30 grams) flour, and 1/4 cup (60 grams) of water into a glass jar.

Our Family GO-TO Buttery Biscuit Recipe

No Refrigerator Biscuits Here!!! Too many weird unpronounceable ingredients in those… and not to mention RED DYE! 🙁 *These biscuits take a little time…. remember that you can flash freeze the cut dough for later use too.  When we have extra eggs, we tend to make breakfast for dinner too. These work for all occasions.  Mix some fresh chopped herbs into…

Gordon Ramsay’s Beer Bread

This has to be one of my favorite recipes for beer bread and I love using the mini loaf pans for this. I do double this recipe for my crew. We recently made this recipe to go along with our cooking from the past recipe of Hot Collops.

Mushroom, Spinach and Chicken Bake

Love being able to put this chicken dish in the oven (or Ninja cooker) and walking away. It is so tasty! Although, my kids like to pick the mushrooms out of it. More for me! This is Keto / Low carb friendly. I like this recipe and double it often in order to have leftovers. This chicken woks great to…

Throwback Thursday – February 6 – Cooking from the 1800s – Creamed Cabbage

Join us on our journey of creating 1800 and early 1900 recipes in a modern farmhouse kitchen. And learn to cook out of a cookbook from when my Great Great Grandmother was providing for her family.

Forgotten Meringue Cookies

These are a favorite in our house since they are so simple to create. And they were a hit at my mom’s cookie exchange with her friends. The best part about these is that you make them, throw them in the oven, turn off the oven and go to bed. They are ready in the morning for your next day…
