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.

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!



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.)



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.


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 Freeze Spinach

I learned this year that I can grow spinach. A lot of spinach. We've been eating spinach for a couple of weeks now. But we still have A LOT. And we've got peas, squash, and zucchini coming up fast, so the kids and I needed to get some of the spinach out of the way. I thought it wouldn't take long, that we would harvest it quickly and that we wouldn't have a ton. I was hoping for 10 quarts actually, so I could put one quart in each of my months of the meal planner.


Creating a Creamy Stir-Fry

I'm having one of THOSE days. You know, the kind where you think "I should not be a mother." Or, in my case, "I should not be allowed around people." I saw my Grandma today, and she listened to my woes and frustrations. At the end of it, I just said, "I'm grumpy, Grandma."


Rooted Shepherd's Pie

I've been working on something BIG, but it's not finished yet. Well, I think it's big. I hope you will too. Gosh, what if you don't? It's just taking a little longer than I anticipated. I thought I would be able to post it today, but I can't just yet.

Anyway. In the meantime, I figured I'd share a little recipe that I absolutely love. I love this stuff so much, I eat it for dessert after I eat it for dinner. Love love love! It has everything I love in it. Mashed potatoes. Corn. Wine.


Honey Muffins

I haven't posted a recipe in a while, and the kids and I have been enjoying these muffins for breakfast. No sugar, just sweetened with applesauce and honey, this muffin is versatile enough that you can really have fun with it.

Hash Browns, Jeremy's Style

So here's the dealio...Jeremy and I have two completely different methods in the kitchen. Mine is: get in, get out, use as few dishes as possible. Jeremy's is: get in, stay in, this is fun and relaxing, use everything to make it taste amazing, presentation is key.


Winning at Biscuits

The past few months Jeremy has been trying to develop the perfect biscuit recipe. He's a fantastic cook, he can grill melt in your mouth foods, but baking does not seem to be his strong suit. And he was shocked the other day when I made up this recipe. He's been waiting and asking me to write the post with the recipe for him ever since.


Fancy Corn Chowder

So what do you have to blog about when you're stuck inside the house all the live long day? Not much! Other than what you're cooking. Or sewing, but I haven't finished that project yet. And we just ate this recipe, with raving reviews, so I'm passing it on to you. The toddler asked for seconds, that's how good it is. And I made it up. That's actually how I do my best cooking. Recipes are recipes for disaster for me. (I couldn't help myself, that is too funny!)
