How to Make Your Own Garlic Powder

Fisherman Eggs + a Collection of Egg Recipes

Since we raise chickens & ducks for eggs, we often have an abundance of eggs. I’m always on the lookout for egg recipes. A couple years ago, I came across numerous recipes for Fisherman Eggs.

Sounds sorta twilight-ish (as in the zone, not the vampires), eh? No worries. The kids & I are going out of town this weekend for a few days & leaving Hubba behind. He has to work or something silly like that. We were supposed to go last month, but we had to postpone it 4 […]

Overwhelmed? Disgusted? Part 2

A few weeks ago I wrote about the overwhelming feelings that come along with eating Real Food. The post had a HUGE response. I never imagined it would garner so much interest. I wrote it because I, myself, was angry, disgusted & upset. While most of the response that I saw was positive, I did […]

Overwhelmed? Disgusted? Not Sure What To Believe?

There is so much controversy all over the web. It ranges from health to food, politics to schooling. Today we’re going to discuss food & health. It seems like everyone is fighting these days.
