Pumpkin Muffins

Everyone is on the pumpkin craze train, so I figured I might as well jump on too. These muffins are quite filling and in hind sight- I should have made them smaller or used a loaf pan. I believe in using what you have on hand, so my one cup of almond flour was really […]

Pancakes for Stephanie

One of Baby Girl’s college friends can’t have gluten, and one thing I have noticed about that bunch is that brunch is common place. I have been looking for and experimenting with gluten free recipes for classic southern faire- this comes pretty close. It reminds me of a whole wheat flap jack. If you are […]

THM/Gluten Free Cheddar Bay Style Biscuits

My favorite thing to eat for breakfast are biscuits; it’s a southern thang. I especially love bacon gravy…and so does my butt. This can be a problem. Lately, I have been missing some of my comfort foods, and Baby Girl wanted garlic cheddar biscuits. CHALLENGE!!!! Twenty experiments later… I have finally found the proper texture […]

Sweet Charaty has a trick she uses on busy mornings. She calls it “cheating”, but I think this is a brilliant idea. I bet her hubby, Greg, would agree! -Enjoy! The Homesteader’s Wife

Who doesn’t love warm bagels? My bunch could eat them for breakfast everyday. I love the fact this is an easy recipe and so forgiving. I have recently been adding dried fruit into the dough, or you can top them with anything before finally bake: cheese, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, dehydrated onions, cinnamon, dried apples, […]

Cheese Popovers

I have been racking my brain trying to come up with ideas on how to use duck eggs and fresh cheese. Then I remembered, years ago, Baby Girl had a boyfriend that liked to cook; he introduced us to these Brazilian Cheese Puffs, which were originally made with Ranchero Queso Fresco. They were rather bland, […]

Whole Wheat Bread

Our own Mrs. Mary was kind enough to share her whole wheat bread recipe; it makes four 2# loaves, which is great if you only bake once a week. It’s even better if you bake more frequently because the dough can be shaped into loaves, frozen, and then pulled out as you need them for […]

Angel Biscuits

What’s an angel biscuit? The easiest way to describe them is half yeast roll and half buttermilk biscuit. I like to make my dough right before I go to bed, set it in the fridge overnight, and then most of the work is done then next morning! Enjoy- The Homesteader’s Wife

1 pack of Rapid Rise […]

Mention N’awlins and I think of Beignets. Never had one? Think of pillowy squares of fried bread drenched in powdered sugar. Make a cup of chicory coffee, add lots of cream and sugar, and it’s morning in N’awlins. – Enjoy- The Homesteader’s Wife

1 cup warm whole milk (about 110°F)
½ cup granulated sugar
¼-ounce package dry yeast
1 […]

Buttermilk Biscuits

The hardest part about teaching someone how to make biscuits is the measurements. After you’ve made a few dozen batches, you just get the feel for the dough and tend not to measure things- at least that’s how it is here on the homestead. My memaw taught me how to make biscuits, and it took […]
