Comfort Foods that Nourish: Shepherd’s Pie

By | February 5, 2014

By Jerri Ann, Contributing Writer We call it sheepherder’s pie in our house. That is what a shepherd is after all, a herder of sheep. So why is it called Shepherd’s Pie anyway? I went to the google machine. It seems that Shepherd’s Pie is used synonymously with Cottage Pie. Cottage Pie dates back to Read More

Recipe Collection: Quick Beef and Potatoes

By | March 15, 2012

I know.  If you’re on Facebook, I made noises about chocolate cake for today.  And I did bake one, and it was pretty good.  But it didn’t turn out quite how I thought it would, and I didn’t decorate it and fill it and make it all nice.  Actually, my family’s coming this weekend to celebrate Read More

Recipe Collection: Simple Marinated Beef

By | March 8, 2012

Right before Jacob was born, I was preparing some freezer meals.  I don’t like to freeze pre-cooked meals, or even uncooked casserole or soup type things.  I generally don’t eat them.  Instead I was focusing on freezing prepared meal components like stock, soaked and cooked beans, and pitas.  I wanted to do some marinated beef, Read More

Recipe Collection: Mexican Rice

By | February 9, 2012

I used to love going to Mexican restaurants.  I’d always get burritos, enchiladas, or quesadillas (with chicken or mushroom fillings) with sides of refried beans and Mexican rice.  Oh, I loved the beans and rice!

I know I promised you homemade gravy today, but I didn’t make any this week to take pictures of.  Bummer.  However, I made this meal awhile back and took pictures of it, and it’s actually kind of similar.  It’s basically cooked ground beef with gravy, which I like to serve over mashed potatoes.  The method Read More

Recipe Collection: Beef with Tomato and Zucchini

By | January 28, 2010

hen I was faced with the necessity of cutting grains out of my diet recently, I had to become more creative in what I cooked. This recipe was born of necessity. If you’re not grain-free, you could serve it with some pasta as a sauce. If you are, it’s great just by itself. :)

Recipe Collection: Baked Ravioli

By | December 17, 2009

I made this for dinner this week and it was yummy! So I thought I’d share with you. :) It’s also a GREAT real food recipe. Lots of pastured eggs, grass-fed beef, whole grain flour, raw milk cheese (if you want; we still can’t do dairy).

Recipe Collection: Stuffed Peppers

By | October 22, 2009

We love stuffed peppers so much, we have them at least every couple weeks! Sometimes we even have them every week. These are kind of fattening (which is GOOD!) and very yummy.
