  • Apple Pie

    Apple Pie

    Granny Smith apples are tart and crisp; Red Delicious a bit sweeter and softer, in a baked pie. Combined they make a beautiful pie, or using only one type, adjust sugar, more for Granny, less for Red. Experience is the best teacher! Just never substitute salt for sugar and most any apple pie is edible. 🙂

    This Dinner Roll recipe is mine. It started from my years of baking experience and a recipe from an old cookbook, putting the two things together quite awhile ago.

  • On Taco’s and Farmers Breakfast

    We are having Taco’s for dinner tonight. I’m not making them, the children are. I have recipes on this site, things I make up, and they use either that, or a printout of it to make dinner. This is the recipe link … https://pastoralfarms.us/2009/09/18/taco-ground-meat-filling/ We still make it the same way, only I have a […]

  • Muffin Cake

    I was making muffins for breakfast yesterday morning and then something happened which made me hand the process off to my daughter. I was going to write the recipe down on an index card, but I got distracted by the other thing, and then my husband and I had to go to homedepot for the […]

  • Penne Pasta & other dishes

    I had a box of Penne pasta I’d gotten at Costco a long time ago, never used any of it since I like the Capellini pasta with my homemade version of meat sauce often, and didn’t want to add another tomato sauce dish into the mix. (All my life I made meatballs to go with […]

  • Spelt Bread (food)

    I’ve ignored my Sourdough cultures of late. I’ve taken to this process: Day 1: Put 1 1/2 cups of whole grain spelt in a bowl, and mix into that 1 cup of yoghurt. Cover with plastic well, and sit that bowl on a shelf until sometime the next day, to make bread with it. I […]

  • Sourdough and Spelt, Soaking, bread (food)

    I put my original sourdough culture in the fridge the other day, as well as a small batch of some from that which I had started to add only white spelt to. They both seemed to be going along fine, so into the fridge with them was my choice. I was reading further in my […]

  • New Meals inspired by Food TV (food)

    I was watching Food TV yesterday, and Paula Dean’s show was on. It caught my undivided attention because she was using recipes for crockpots and slow cooking, particularly the first recipe, Creamy Macaroni and Cheese for the crockpot … which is something that she said they use in their restaurant (in Savannah, GA) a lot. […]

  • Grinding Meat (food)

    I made spaghetti for dinner last evening. I didn’t make fresh Kamut pasta, my preference –what I haven’t done much in the past, but am trying to get going regularly now, but I did use Spelt pasta, bought at Whole Foods, a VitaSpelt product (Purity). It’s a dry boxed pasta, Angel Hair being my favorite […]

  • St. Patty eats (food)

    Tomorrow is “St. Patty Day” … I have Irish in my family tree (many, many years ago); and I had a beloved Aunt who was married to my blood-uncle — she was 100% Irish (as far as I know) but born (I think) in the USA, and raised in the USA. I like having the […]

  • Meatloaf (food)

    I’m making a meatloaf for dinner, in the crock pot. I haven’t made many “meatloaf” dishes in the past few years, used to make them more in the past. I think I’ve done one in the crock pot before, but not more than that, usually prefering the oven … but today I am trying it […]

  • Older Meal made once again

    Frank let me get a new crock pot last week. I had three, and something went wrong with each one, and the last time I used one was some months ago already. Costco had a certain one in stock, a decent price, but it was fluffy-boo-coo to me. I didn’t want it. It was all […]
