A large part of my life is spent in the procurement and preparation of food. I’ve always wanted to say that. 😀 But seriously, if you think about it this has been the case for most of us since the dawn of time (unless you’re filthy rich and have a cook or you’re a bachelor who eats out a lot). As a stay-at-home mom it’s my main duty to use my husband’s paycheck wisely to feed my family nourishing food #feedthepeople.
I do A LOT of cooking but strangely I don’t create all too many recipes from scratch on my own. I do, however, have a few tried-and-true recipes I found on the internet that I love. Today I’m sharing those with you. I’ve made these recipes multiple times and they are always great. A lot of them are gluten free and all use real food ingredients.
We have been juicing on and off for a few years now, but since our CSA offered a “juicing” box, we’ve been getting more serious with it. The CSA provides us with…well… whatever is on the menu. Usually it’s plenty of fresh kale, lemons, beets, cucumbers, carrots, etc. And to be honest we can’t keep up- our fridge is overflowing with raw veggies! I guess we need to get even more serious.
Today, I am guest posting at a beautiful little blog called The Prairie Homestead. I was a little nervous as to what to write about (it’s my first time guest posting) so I stuck with something tried and true- Homemade Coconut Oil Deodorant.
It has been a long time since I have savored the unmistakable taste of a good batch of collard greens. My Granny is the epitome of a good southern cook and her collard greens are out of this world. So when making my own batch of greens for Thanksgiving, I could of just called her and taken the easy road out.
A lot of homemade cleaners we’ve brewed up at home are at best, hit or miss. Sometimes there just isn’t a substitute for the harsh and toxic cleaners. An example of this is would be automatic dishwashing detergent. All the homemade brews we’ve concocted do not work.
Our two jalapeno plants have been working overtime giving us so many tasty peppers. Here’s a dynamite salsa recipe that will keep you coming back for more. I make this every time we have a get together and it is always a hit.
