Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: article, cooking tips

Our cookbook often calls for adding herbs to a recipe. The good folks at Cooksmarts came up with an amazing infographic to help you out when you're ready to branch out and try something new.

If you're going to splurge and have eggnog, you really ought to make it yourself. It is quite easy and delicious!

A delicious treat that your family and guests will love. Not nearly as hard to make as you might think. Read the recipe to learn more and be sure to watch Betsy's video to see for yourself! Makes 6 servings.



Egg Labels and what they Really Mean

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: article, newsletter

Animal Welfare Approved, Free-Range, Cage-Free... sometimes all those terms sound the same. It can be confusing. Vox did a great write-up of what all those different terms mean and what you should be looking for with your eggs...



Mashed Parsnips

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, sides

Parsnips are really super good, probably my favorite side right now. Consider doubling this recipe and save the extras for the next morning to make cakes fried in bacon fat to have with your eggs.



Ham Potato and Broccoli Quiche

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, eggs, sausages, ham, video, newsletter

This is a fairly quick and easy meal that works great for breakfast through dinner. A real crowd pleaser, plan on feeding four with this recipe.



Fresh Veggie Cheve Salad with Tahini Sauce

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, vegan, vegetarian

This is the BEST salad for summer (or when you wish it was summer). It is quick, easy and surprisingly filling as a stand alone meal



Tahini Dressing

This is probably Betsy's favorite dressing to have around. It is quick and easy to make and is great on just about everything. Think salad dressing, chicken, veggie dip, veggie salad, gyro, etc.

The inexpensive kitchen tool everyone needs. We use our immersion blender ALL the time... from smoothies, to soups, to aioli/hollandaise to pate. This is the best investment for your kitchen -- saves a TON of time.



Oven Pancake

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, eggs, breakfast, video

Remember the restaurant Pannekoeken? Here’s our version. These pancakes are quick, easy and super tasty. They aren’t so great for those of you on a traditional or GAPS diet… but whatever, go for it! These taste great and have lots of healthy short and medium chain saturated fats and CLAs thanks for the pasture raised butter, eggs and coconut oil.



BATs (Bacon, Avocado and Tomato)

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, bacon

Why didn’t we think of this sooner?! A bacon, avocado, and tomato sandwich was the perfect meal when Betsy came home from a long day of marching band and Jack had a long day of farming while parenting a toddler. Quick, easy, filling, super tasty, and loved by every member of the family. We will be making this again. And again and again….



Chorizo, potato and peppers

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, brats, chorizo, sausages

Our chorizo isn't dried like a traditional sausage, so it is a bit more versatile. Here is a simple dish that works for breakfast or dinner.



Roasted Beets

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, sides

Nothing goes with a great burger or fries like some delicious roasted beets! These are good warm or refrigerated. You can also freeze the beets before topping and save them for a quick dish later.



Spiced Couscous with Raisin and Almond

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, sides

Great with our Moroccan-Style Chicken. A sweet treat and so easy to make!



Moroccan-Style Roast Chicken

Posted by Josh King | Tags: recipes, chicken, whole chicken, breast, thigh, drumsticks, sous vide

This is a delicious dish. Remember: If your spices are old and don’t have a robust smell to them, it is worth getting new ones before trying this dish. Don’t buy spices at big box grocery stores. How long do you think the turmeric sits on the shelf there before someone buys it? Shop for these spices at a local Co-op with a good bulk spice selection.
