Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
This morning, my boys asked for green eggs for breakfast. Since we just observed the shared birthday of Dr. Seuss and myself, the whole green egg concept isn’t strange to them.Pin It

While confronting and redeeming a recent popular secular phenomenon, Hallee Bridgeman, A.K.A. “Hallee the Homemaker” finds every grain of truth in her second whole food, real food cookbook with in-depth analysis and amazing recipes of yeast breads, quick breads, sourdoughs, and breads using grains other than wheat. The Walking Bread is a cookbook wrapped in a parody surrounded by a comedy with a tongue firmly inserted into a cheek — but the recipes are “dead serious” and may leave readers searching for all the tasty bread crumbs.Pin It
In Greek, the word bobota can mean anything from cornmeal to any bread or polenta-type dish made with cornmeal. In Greek history, during times of hardship, cornmeal recipes were very popular, and bobota is considered by many to be a “peasant” dish. This recipe gets a delightful shot of flavor from fresh orange juice and produces a dense, crumbly cornbread.Pin It
I made these for breakfast one Sunday morning, and my kids asked for them all week long. They were incredibly easy to make and tasted amazing.Pin It
My daughter Kaylee LOVES fresh pico de gallo. She’ll sit with a huge bowl of it and a bag of organic tortilla chips and just inhale it. And because of the health benefits to the fresh salsa, I don’t discourage it. With fresh tomatoes, fresh peppers, and fresh onion, the vitamins and minerals can’t be beat. In running the nutritional analysis of the recipe, this is what I discovered. Fresh Pico de Gallo is has no cholesterol, is low in sodium, very high in dietary fiber, high in manganese, high in magnesium, high in niacin, high in phosphorus, very high in potassium, high in thiamin, very high in vitamin A, very high in vitamin B6, and very high in vitamin C.
It’s also REALLY easy. I make it all summer long straight out of my garden.Pin It
I remember my mom making this whenever we had company for dinner. This is the perfect “company’s coming” type of dish. It has your meat, starch, and vegetables all rolled into one casserole dish. It’s hearty, delicious, and different from the standard lasagna or baked chicken that are easy fall backs for entertaining. You can prepare it, put it in the oven, and get your kitchen cleaned up in time for company to arrive. Serve it with a tossed salad and a fresh baked loaf of French Bread, and you have the perfect meal.Pin It
I love this recipe, because there is no sugar in it. It uses maple syrup as the sweetener. The addition of the almond extract is the perfect flavor to make your cup of coffee taste like a cinnamon roll right out of the oven.Pin It

I made this to take to church for breakfast for my Sunday School class. It was really good, and required no syrup for serving. I made it the evening before, popped it into the oven 30 minutes before we had to leave for church, and was able to serve it still warm to my class. I did not take any pictures of the process and I apologize for that. But, the recipe was too good not to share.Pin It
This is a quick pasta sauce that every member of our family will love. The kale is a wonderful source of vitamins A, C, and K, as well as omega 3 and omega 6. You can use any kind of pasta you want when making this dish. It takes very little time to make, and using grass-fed beef and organic vegetables it’s still barely $3 per person.Pin It
