Homemade Sauerkraut

Growing up with a German family there was never a shortage of sauerkraut. At least once a week we would have it in our meals. Usually with franks. Somewhere down the line, as I got older, it slowly disappeared. Not sure if our eating habits just changed or possible complaints from my brother and I. […]

Benefits of Fermenting Foods – Raisin Chutney

I’ve been reading “Deep Nutrition” by Dr. Catherine Shanahan, M.D., as one of my books for my Nutrition program. Let me just go ahead and say I HIGHLY recommend this book, especially for anyone interested in the history of how we are supposed to eat and more in depth information on how food affects us. Dr. […]

Citrus Glazed Carrots

Holiday side dish? Abso-freakin-lutely! Of course, Vaughan is probably getting sick and tired of carrots… I’m pretty sure I cook them at least once every day. Secretly I’m just trying to get him to say ENOUGH! and take over the kitchen. Unfortunately my plan doesn’t seem to be working very well. So, in the mean […]

If you don’t like Brussels Sprouts, then you’ve never had them prepared right! This is such a delicious veggie, but not one that many will enjoy steamed or lightly sauteed. They’re hearty and can take a beating when being cooked. We love our Brussels Sprouts and would eat them AT LEAST once a week for […]

Grilled Caesar Salad

We love Caesar Salad. But only with our homemade dressing. I can’t remember the last time I actually purchased caesar salad dressing.  It’s actually Vaughan’s recipe. I have to give credit where credit’s due, and it is my absolute favorite.  Citrusy, light and packed full of flavor.  And if you’ve never grilled your lettuce before, […]

The Whole Carrot

Every week, on Thursdays,  for the past couple of weeks we’ve been getting a basket of organic produce form Ellensville Farmers Market.  For $35-$40 we get a basket full of eggs, greens and all sorts of mixed veggies, all organic of course.  The first week we came home with potatoes, greens and a bit of […]
