Fermented Pickles: The Experiment and Experience

First let me start by saying, “Hello, my name is Kadee, and I am a pickle snob.” I like those expensive refrigerated pickles; the limp heat processed one are deplorable- in my opinion. Yes, I’ll eat the thinly sliced pickle chips that come on a Sonic burger, but it doesn’t mean that I like them. […]

Mexican Cornbread

Y’all, I have seriously been craving some cornbread lately. I been experimenting with gluten free baking and this is spot on. It tastes like the stuff you’re used to. It is an S- yes…even with the masa flour. There is only a ¼ of a cup in the whole batch. This recipe makes a 13×9” […]

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 Caramel Sauce or Creamy Pralines

Hmmmm…that is weird. Which is it? Well the ingredients are the same up until a certain point, so like most homesteaders, Imma kill two birds at the same time. Yes, I know that’s not how the saying goes, but I live in Louisiana- enough said right? Anywho… at the end of this sentence, stop reading […]

Green Onion Sausage

One of the reasons I love this new food plan (Trim Healthy Momma) is because I am able to use the foods I raise and grow here on the farm. Craig Dendy shared his recipe with me; I tweaked it a bit to make it THM friendly. You can play with the spices by adding […]

Never buy Yogurt Again

One of my favorite snacks is plain yogurt, berries, and a drizzle of raw honey, but I have been known to skip the fruit and go with walnuts and honey. I like to make a few jars and store in the fridge at work for a handy and healthy treat. Have you seen the price […]

1 gallon Milk, not ultra-pasteurized
1 1/2 tsp. Citric Acid powder, dissolved in 1/4 cup room-temperature water

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 […]
