Farmwife’s “Crab” Cakes (aka Poor Man’s Crab Cakes)

So, I found myself cooking for a pescatarian today. Most of our easy lunch options include meat-based protein, which meant I needed to put forth a bit more effort than usual. And yet, lunch was ready in less than 30 minutes, felt gourmet, and was made entirely from ingredients I already had in my pantry!... Continue Reading →

Farmwife Fire Cider!

Tonight, I set up four quarts of fire cider to mature / infuse for a month. Fire cider is a miraculous tonic / tincture that has been a folk medicine standard for hundreds of years. In the early 1980s, Rosemary Gladstar provided her students at the California School of Herbal Studies with a recipe for... Continue Reading →

Mixed Pepper Jelly

  In the midst of my food preservation / preparation flurry, I've made some large batches of mini (quarter-pint) jars of certain things for our yearly holiday gifts. Come wintertime, all I'll have to do is make pretty labels, and give them to the Man to hand out Yay for reducing holiday stress! Following is... Continue Reading →

Make chimichurri of course. It must be noted, of course, that traditional chimichurri from Argentina and Uruguay doesn't actually use... Continue Reading →

You can adjust the heat and flavor to your own preferences by switching out the peppers: just make sure... Continue Reading →

Homemade Skillet Chili Mac

If you're anything like me, a sizeable portion of your life is spent devoted to creating dishes that are somewhat healthy, that your ridiculously picky tiny people will still eat. My girls are great with anything that revolves around "normal" fruits, bread, snack food, sugar, or chicken nuggets, but that is about the extent of their culinary... Continue Reading →

Four Cheese Skillet Lasagna

Dinner last night was a one-pot wonder. The picky, picky toddlers ate it happily, which is the triumph I pray for every day...and I managed to sneak veggies in! Next time, I'll add more vegetables (now that I know they'll go for the sauce and won't notice them) and skip the bread crumb topping to cut... Continue Reading →
