From Scratch Peanut Butter

I find so much enjoyment in cooking from scratch. There's something so special about making items yourself instead of purchasing them pre-made at the grocery store! Here at the Hilltop we strive to make as many things as we can homemade: Fermented Pickles, Cinnamon Applesauce, Garden-Fresh Tomato Sauce, Sourdough Tortillas, and so much more! Peanut...

Sourdough Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Sourdough discard is always in abundance around here, so I'm always seeking out new ways to use it up rather than throwing it out. Thankfully there are endless varieties of recipes that call for sourdough discard. No shortage of options here! I frequently use up any sourdough discard in pancakes, waffles, crepes, pizza crust, or... Continue Reading →

How to Can Tomato Sauce

My tomato harvest came to a close in early October. I stored just about every Roma tomato that was pulled from the garden in the freezer until I was ready to process them all (find all the info about What to do with Roma Tomatoes here).

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 →

Sourdough Peanut Butter Crepes

Our weekend breakfasts usually include Sourdough Pancakes | Naturally Sweetened, Naturally Sweetened Sourdough Waffles, Honey-Sweetened Sourdough Chocolate Chip Muffins, bacon, sausage, Sourdough Drop Biscuits, or eggs. But sometimes I want something that can be whipped up a bit faster and is still filling and healthy for my family. I also find that I lose interest... Continue Reading →
