Easy Sourdough Cinnamon Rolls


Have you ever mixed up your bread dough, and then forgotten about it? I just did that. It rose and rose, and by the time I looked at again, it was not going to rise again. Instead of throwing it out to the chickens, I decided to try for some cinnamon rolls.

It's just that time of year when I need to eat all the calories (my body does not like the idea of possibly getting cold), so I've been craving cinnamon rolls and everything else under the sun that is sweet and delicious and warm. These sourdough cinnamon rolls satisfied the cravings without hurting my health too much because they really didn't have that much sugar in them.

Forming a Food Community

It's all well and good to talk about eating good foods, right? We also need to do something about it. We need to actually start eating those good foods.



God Food, Good Food

I am, have been, and will be, trying to define our diet. I hesitate to even name it because I'm leaning toward calling it food. But perhaps that's not so well defined these days? Especially when you look at all the available diets.



How to Make Icelandic Yogurt with Goat's Milk

Y'all, I make our yogurt now. We are finally getting enough milk that we aren't consuming it all fresh (and actually, I used a gallon to make yogurt and another gallon to make into cheese today because we have so much!) so I've been experimenting. My next project will be soap. But for today, I want to share how we make our yogurt.

Make sure you check out the bottom of this post to find out how you can make amazing cakes too!


Y'all. I did it.



Garden Eating ~ Eowyn's Scrambled Eggs

Eowyn is usually left inside with the two littles while Gideon and I head outside to milk the goats. Sometimes, she'll decide to make some breakfast. She likes cooking, and the littles will watch a Puffin Rock or Sarah and Duck on Netflix. Usually, it's simple. Like oatmeal, or boiled eggs. But then the other day, I told her she could make some scrambled eggs with onions and spinach from the garden. She loved this idea!



Sourdough Crepes Recipe

Yes, I have something for you today. And you are going to want to thank me.



How to Make Ranch Dressing

My husband can seriously be stubborn. Sometimes, sometimes! Well, the past couple of years, I've been trying to convince him that we shouldn't buy or use the ranch packets anymore. I mean, they have preservatives, and are expensive, and etc. etc. etc. I've shown him all the Pinterest ranch recipes, but he still insisted that the ranch packets just tasted better and are cheaper because you have to use so many seasonings.



Cast Iron Cooking: Meatloaf

Do you know how awesome cast iron is? It is. It is the best thing in the world to cook with. (Although, I do covet copper pots. Cast iron is a bit more affordable.)



Beef Stew

We all know that Jeremy is one of those fabulous cooks. His food is almost always amazing. And my food...well, it sometimes works out. But every once in a while, I win. Wait, it's not a competition. Every once in a while, I cook amazing things, and Jeremy's game is off. That still sounds like I win, doesn't it? Oh well. I win!



A Real Food Grilled Cheese

Did you think that your days of cheap, easy comfort food were over with your real food journey? Changing our diets and habits is hard, we miss our comfort foods, and sometimes we aren't prepared with soaked beans. (That may just be me.)



Sourdough - Quicker

I love my sourdough bread. Buttered and toasted, it's close to heaven. My method has served us for years, but these past few months I've been struggling. Time has been short, nights have quickly gotten too late. So finally, I acknowledged defeat. Right now, I can't do a second rise sourdough. I need something that I can get done in one day, not in two.


Top Ten Posts for 2015

2015 was a good year for us, with plenty of ups and downs, changes in plans, blessings and stressings. I fell twice, which I am not happy about (don't laugh like my husband did, I got all bruised up and made awful noises on the way down).

Holiday Favorites: Sausage Balls

Yum, yum, yum. Christmas eating involves several favorites in our house. A nice cheese ball, cookies of any sort (my favorite!), and sausage balls. I'm not really sure why we reserve sausage balls for Christmas time, because they aren't that hard to make, and we all love them.


Chicken 'n Dumplings (& Budget Meals Idea)

I haven't posted a recipe in a LONG time...probably because I haven't been cooking in my own kitchen lately. And what little cooking I have been doing is limited to smoked sausage stir-fries. And while, we love them, it's not really anything to write home about. Or blog about.


Easiest Way to Freeze Corn

Every year my family and I buy several bushels of corn and spend a day freezing it all. It takes FOREVER, makes a HUGE mess, and afterward nobody wants any corn for at least 3 months. But we're always so glad to have the fresh, sweet corn in the winter months.


Squash & Zucchini (& a Harvest Recipes Link up!)

I don't really know what I do to my squash and zucchini plants, it's just one of those things that apparently grow well under a black thumb. Or maybe the Lord loves growing it so much He just blesses us with extra. (Since I can't grow very much else well.) I really should pay more attention to them, actually. But I get a big harvest, and by the time the bugs start killing them off, I'm somewhat relieved. We all are, actually, we've been eating squash and zucchini almost every day for a month now.


When You have Eggs and Zucchini...

I guess I'm pretty vain, and a bit too proud of myself. I thought I had made up the world's newest egg casserole and I was about to share it with all of you. I was just trying to come up with a name. I was thinking "Putemtogether." And I thought that was pretty cute. Because, you know, I just put eggs and zucchini together.


How to Make Strawberry... Syrup?

Don't be like me. Don't read about making strawberry jam from several different sites; some that used pectin, some that used apples, some that used sugar, and some that used honey. And definitely don't combine all those recipes in your head. Here's what happened:
