Food From Scratch

Simple Farm-Fresh Frittata

Recently, we were able to get some really great farm fresh eggs from a local lady and we’ve been happy to have an excuse to eat even MORE eggs than normal!

Old Fashioned Shepherd’s Pie – Reduced Sodium/No preservatives

I LOVE Shepherd’s Pie. It’s one of those incredibly comforting meals that seem perfect for the rainy day that we are enjoying here today.

I’ve been trying my best to find opportunities to feed my family for less. One great discovery – Granola. Why on earth did I ever buy granola? It… Continue reading Homemade Granola

Pizza Pretzels! Reduced Sodium 🙂

For my birthday the last couple of years we have been going on a road trip to Regina (it’s not terribly exciting but it’s about as far as can be enjoyed while lugging around a potty-training toddler!). One thing that we do differently now than before Laura came around is that we pack our own… Continue reading Pizza Pretzels! Reduced Sodium 🙂
