All about That Broth

Bone broth. Two words spoken in my home at least 1/2 a dozen times a day, enjoyed by the mug full another 1/2 a dozen, and utilized in several other methods periodically throughout my time in the kitchen. Its my breakfast and my bedtime snack. My two children ages 6 and 4 could quite possibly…

Bone Broth – Beef Tongue

We live in a culture of hot & fried – fast food. I want to bring us back to low and slow – soul food. The meals where the love that went into the preparation can be tasted. To nurture the food we plan on serving others and take joy in the anticipation of that…

  Cake. Its whats for breakfast.     Once a week we have an event at our house called “baking day.” This is the day Mom, (me) gets over zealous and enthusiastically prepares and creates as many dishes possible -before my brains explode- and throw them all in the oven all at the same time….

Ground Beef/Liver meatloaf

Meatloaf – one of those iconic, stick to your ribs, hearty, classic American dinners. Always served with a side of mashed potatoes. Today, we’re upgrading. I’m always ‘sneaking’ superfoods onto my boys plates. My husband will eat anything (except avocados), bless his gracious heart. Anything, I thought, until I fried up liver and onions one…
