Maple Nut Granola {Soaked Version}

I posted a picture of my granola ingredients soaking on the Becoming Kindred facebook page and was asked if I would share the recipe. I intended to share it sooner but life always seems to have a way of changing what I intended. A little side note as a recipe...

Pumpkin & Red Lentil Curry

Lentils are a relatively new addition to our family menu. Other than enjoying them in the dal that our friends made whenever we would share an Indian feast, until this past year, they weren’t legumes that I had cooked with much. However, they have become an important...

Creepy Crawlies

Mostly I really like having my own garden and it is so satisfying to eat a meal that we grew ourselves. Today we harvested our first broccoli and ate it steamed and buttered for lunch. We were all enjoying it thoroughly with the girls punctuating each bite with "mm"...

Eat & be Merry

A while back, I talked about the way that we eat. After some conversations, emails, and questions with others, I realized that I had kind of missed the mark and I felt bad about that. My intention was to share some food for thought (haha) and perhaps I did for some...

Our Daily Bread: March 12-18

The sun is shining gloriously and Monday can't help but feel beautiful. I got my meal plan finished last night with just a couple of changes this morning. After a winter of lots of soups and cooked foods, I am realizing that I am so ready for the season of salads, raw...

Our Daily Bread: March 5-11

I thought I would share this weeks meal plan as I haven't done that in a while. It isn't fancy, we aren't too fancy lately. But, we are loving the deer meat that is in our freezer, it is so good. I am excited in the food department right now because a) I have my...

Marissa’s Carrot Cake (Gluten Free)

The very first recipe that I ever shared on my blog was my own recipe for carrot cake. At the time we were not eating gluten free but I was cooking with a lot of different grains and I had come up with a carrot cake that everyone agreed that they really liked. A while...

Scavenger Hunt Sunday {03.4.2012}

Is it seriously already March? Does this mean spring is coming? The appearance of birds including robins leads me to hope. I wasn't sure that I was going to come up with anything from this weeks photos to join Scavenger Hunt Sunday this week but with a couple of shots...

Our Daily Bread: Nov 21-27

The meal plan has been created! I actually am finding it handy to post on here especially when I link recipes because I can check it anywhere, even the grocery store:). I am not feeling terribly creative lately and I feel that more grains than I would like are...

Recipes instead of meal plans

Truthfully, my meal plan is only half done for this week. I am feeling really short on ingredients and too tired to come up with much. So tomorrow, I will probably go to a nifty site like allrecipes.com where I can type in my ingredients and they will offer recipes....

Almond/Walnut Macaroons

I have had this recipe for a while and since it is included in this weeks meal plan, I thought that I would post it on here. They aren't as light at the melt-in-your mouth macaroons but I believe that they still get to be defined as macaroons. Almond/Walnut Macaroons...

Our Daily Bread: November 14-20

I was doing well with the meal plan until mid-week when I was hit with a nasty flu/cold which turned the next few days to misery of aching head and inflamed joints and saw a great deal of chicken broth being added to the menu as well as a few freezer meals prepped for...
