How to Season Cast Iron

Cast iron is an old fashioned kitchen tool that I implemented into my cooking last year. I'm still new to the whole system, but a year of use will teach you a lot! I really struggled to get a proper seasoning on my skillet when I first began cooking with it. I made mistakes like... Continue Reading →

Sourdough Drop Biscuits

Around here, slow Saturday mornings often involve a hearty brunch. That almost always means eggs, potatoes, and some form of sourdough bread. We often rotate between sourdough pancakes, waffles, chocolate chip muffins, crepes, or biscuits. I love these bread items because they give us the health benefits of fermentation and they are all naturally sweetened... Continue Reading →

Homemade Fermented Pickle Recipe

I love from scratch foods. There truly is nothing like that kind of cooking. Homemade Crock Pot Cinnamon Applesauce on a cool autumn day will fill anyone with joy. Lathering early morning biscuits with a Homemade Butter. The smell and flavor of a Honey-Sweetened Monster Cookie in the afternoon. I'm telling ya...you just can't find... Continue Reading →

Sourdough Mistakes to Avoid

Perhaps you've recently jumped on the popular sourdough train that is making headway in our current society. You're excited about the beginning steps of creating your starter (see how to do that right here), watched the bubbles form, and maybe even baked a few good loaves of bread, pancakes, pizza crust, or muffins. That's fantastic!... Continue Reading →

Cast Iron Mistakes to Avoid

I've been cooking with my cast iron skillet for about a year now. I must say that when I added this old fashioned pan alongside my sourdough starter, I kinda felt like my farmhouse kitchen took a step back in time! Those two items work quite well together. There's nothing like sourdough pancakes or sourdough... Continue Reading →

All Natural Liquid Dish Soap

As I continue towards ridding my home of as many harsh chemicals as possible, dish soap is next on the list. I began using a toxic-free all purpose cleaner a few years ago and still find it extremely effective! I then like to freshen up any linens with my natural linen spray and remove any...

Homemade Sourdough Tortillas

Tortillas were one of the first food items I made from scratch when my husband and I were first married. I mixed them up in our little apartment kitchen, rolled them out into odd shapes (I could not make them into a circle to save my life!), and baked them up on the skillet. That... Continue Reading →

Stain Remover for Carpets DIY

I utilize stain removers for my carpets on a regular basis. A certain mobile baby boy tends to leave behind trails of spit up as he scampers around the house. But thats ok because I found a homemade solution for cleaning up those messes! I knew that I didn't want just any carpet cleaning product... Continue Reading →

Sourdough Pizza Crust

Today is a very gray, rainy summer day in the Midwest. The amount of rain we've received over the past few weeks is definitely not normal for this time of year, so I'm looking for ways to enjoy the time inside (even when we'd rather be outdoors). Dinner tonight will be a weekend favorite: ham... Continue Reading →

Honey Sweetened Mug Brownie

My husband and I sat down for a movie night last week and before long my sweet tooth started nudging me. Ice cream or a yogurt parfait are my normal go-to's, but neither of those were available at the time. So I pulled out an old winter favorite: a warm, homemade, fudgy brownie in a...
