Garden to table organic home cuisine.

Organic & Grass Fed

My garden is composed of all organic and heirloom variety plants. The few veggies, eggs and the meats I buy are organic, pasture raised and or grass fed. I feel this is the most ethical and nutritious choice for my family and the planet.

Non GMO

I DO NOT plant or buy anything genetically modified.

Thick and creamy Greek style probiotic yogurt made with raw milk kefir

                                        Almost exactly like my regular yogurt recipe but much thicker and this time I added fresh real vanilla bean powder.   I think this is THE BEST yogurt I have ever had.  It’s smooth and creamy while being light and refreshing at the same time.   Plus it’s the best probiotic…

Healthy homemade soda

I searched and searched for a healthy soda for my husband a crohns patient who loves a nice cold sweet bubbly beverage.   I found sodas made with cane sugar, not a great option but better than high fructose corn syrup.  I found Zevia and other soda brands claiming to be sweetened with stevia really contain more erythritol  as sweetener than stevia, in fact it is the second ingredient on…

Crunchy Chickpeas aka Garbanzo Beans

These crunchy snacks are super easy to make and very healthy.  Chickpeas or garbanzo beans, are packed with fiber and protein as well as a slew of vitamins.  I fry mine in good organic virgin coconut oil, it’s healthy and perfect for frying.  You might think it would make them taste like coconut, instead it gives the beans a buttery taste.  I also use this oil for popcorn, it’s DIVINE!!!…

I Made Fathead’s Paleo Bread

I made this for the family and we think its pretty good!  Better than store bought paleo bread.  It fits my husbands crohns diet as well as being healthy for the kids.  This bread has a springy texture and holds up well when sliced.  It’s more moist than my other gluten free breads, some people may prefer it toasted.  I think I may try adding just a touch of almond…

Avocado Prosciutto Eggs

Try this! Avocado halves make an excellent cup for poached eggs. Add a nest of fresh prosciutto in the avocado before topping with the egg and when you slice the egg the yolk will run just enough to make each bite perfect. I always, always, always, use Himalayan salt and fresh cracked pepper.

Gluten Free Sicilian-style Pizza Crust

                              This recipe uses a wide variety of alternative flours, I find they work best if you mix them.  It does have quite a bit of starch but hey even us gluten free folks have to live a little, right?   I normally would make wheat pizza on a pizza stone but that needs to be…

Kefir Yogurt Recipe

Raw kefir yogurt is probiotic heaven!  I used raspberries but the possibilities are endless.   If you make your own kefir from live grains, you must try this. 1.  Let you kefir sit long enough with the grains to get pretty thick, yogurt-like.  Remove grains. 2.  Dump it into a nut milk bag or cheesecloth and strain out the whey.  KEEP THIS!  Whey  is good for many things.   If your trying…
