This stuff works great for burritos, bowls, and just snacking cold, straight out of the fridge (I eat it by the handful that way for breakfast). It would probably be good in sandwiches, too. For the chicken, I use boneless, skinless chicken breast. For steak, you can go from very easy to more work but […]
Brining for Juicy, Yummy Meat
I have discovered brining. I had no idea what I was missing. Brining uses salt water to suck moisture and flavors into the meat. The key is to use enough salt. If you use too little it sucks the moisture out instead. At least, that’s what they say. Making the brine: Use 1 tablespoon coarse […]

Confused About Fat? Choose Grassfed!
Confused About Fat? Choose Grassfed! by Jo Robinson Printer Friendly VersionIn my Grandma’s day, there was no such thing as a bad fat. All fat was “good” simply because it tasted good. My Grandma fried her eggs in bacon grease, added bacon grease to her cakes and pancakes, made her pie crusts from lard, and […]
Tortilla-less Burrito Bowls
You can use any kind of beans and any kind of cheese that you like. I used Anasazi beans and a mixture of cheddar and other cheeses. I think it was called the Mexican Blend or Taco Blend. I bought it already shredded. It is really better to grate your own because they use an […]
Too Much Zucchini and Beef Soup
I love zucchini, and it’s a good thing I do. We planted just two zucchini plants and have more than we know what to do with. This is a beef soup, featuring zucchini. It also contains a small sweet potato. I use cinnamon and cayenne to compliment the squash flavor and the sweetness. The homegrown […]
