Risotto

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: sides, recipes, bones, newsletter

Risotto is really simple to make, but it is outstanding when done right. The trick is having patience as well as good rice and broth. It can be a stand alone meal or a side dish. I love taking the time to caramelize the onions this recipe calls for...



Paprika Beef Stew

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, beef, roasts

This is our favorite recipe for beef chuck roasts. We love to make up a bunch of it and freeze portions for later use.



Gotta Have it Pate'

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, sides, chicken, liver

Liver, a ‘traditional food’, is very nourishing yet does not have a presence in most modern households. If you have never given liver a chance, this is a great way to try it.



The Best Eggnog

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: dessert, recipes, eggs, newsletter

If you're going to splurge and have eggnog, you really ought to make it yourself. It is quite easy and delicious! Seems like the New Year is a perfect time to serve this up for some guests!



Crème Brulee a la Betsy

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

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.



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.



Fresh Veggie Chevre 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

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

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.



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.



Pork Chops with Capers and Cream

Here is an amazingly simple and tasty recipe for your pork chops or loin roasts. We took these chops off at around 135 degrees.
