Picking the Garden

Here is my latest harvest. I've been getting something akin to this when I pick a couple times per week. The question is how to do it justice? Today, the tomato worm "massacre" was worse than normal as I haven't... Continue Reading →

Seasonal Eating

What's in season right now? Depends on what you planted, what's growing, and what's native. Right now it's mulberry, collards, and onion season! So, I will be whipping up a mulberry crumble and some collards and black-eyed peas! We are... Continue Reading →

When You Want Burgers, But You’re Out of Buns

I wanted burgers for dinner, but I was out of hamburger buns. So, instead of running to the grocery store, I just made some buns using Prairie Homestead's recipe. These are so good and are fast and easy to make!... Continue Reading →

What’s For Dinner? Chicken Chow Mein

We don't eat much takeout because we are way too far off the beaten track. The closest fast food is NOT worth it. Naturally, we haven't been dining out over the last 15 months either. Hence, we often get stumped... Continue Reading →

Fall Garden in the Low Tunnel

I cleared the summer weeds and grass out of my low tunnel and planted a fall garden on September 18. The tunnel is roughly 25 feet long and sporting 6 mil poly. I thought I'd take you for a tour and show you how things are growing!

Bok Choy Harvest & Kadun Kadu (Chamorro Beef Soup)

We lived on Guam for 3 years before we got out of the U.S. Navy; it was the Husband's second tour on Guam. One of the recipes I instantly loved was Kadun Kadu and everytime I can get my hands on bok choy, I'm almost sure to make it.

Collards & Black-Eyed Peas

Oh, how I miss the South! So, the only other thing I can do to keep from being homesick is cook Southern food, especially since we're up here in this bleak and bland land they call Kansas. (We haven't been impressed with Midwestern casseroles.)

Slow Food & Air Fryers

Okay, I'm opinionated about instant pots and air fryers. I'm anti-instant pot, but I'm on my way to being converted to an air fryer believer. (The jury is still out until I've attempted egg rolls in the air fryer.) I will note that I would never have purchased an air fryer, but I did receive one as a Christmas gift from my kitchen-gadget-loving mother.
