Cool weather is the perfect time for a steamy bowl of rich clam chowder! But, the truth is, I love chowders even if it is hot outside!

Small Batch ~ Pear Butter

Follow Me on Pinterest
I purchased a couple pears to make a pear tart, but the pears over-ripened before I had a chance to make my tart. In the past, they would have been tossed out, but I peeled one and the inside was still perfect. I chopped them up, added a little of this, a little of that . . . simmered awhile, and I have, not quite a cup, of very tasty Pear Butter!

Who doesn't love a pudding cake? Walk through the bakery section of your local grocery store, and you'll see whole pudding cakes in assorted flavors and for those watching their weight . . . they'll even sell you one-half of a pudding cake! They do look tempting! But, as we all know, nothing beats a homemade pudding cake! I have a moist, sweetly spiced, Pumpkin Pudding Cake recipe you're gonna love, and come back to, over and over again!

Crock Pot Pork Shoulder

Follow Me on Pinterest

I used to cook all my larger roasts in the pressure cooker until I read Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon. It appears the jury is still out about what heat under pressure actually does to foods. So, I've decided when I have the time, I will use the Crock Pot, in lieu of my pressure cooker.

Making a Feast out of Nothing . . . Turkey a la King!

Follow Me on Pinterest

This week I bought a fresh turkey breast at Sprouts on a manager's special. This particular turkey had a piece of the backbone still attached. Such an innocuous bit of turkey, most would have thrown it out!
