Whole wheat buttermilk biscuits

Happy Easter!I can’t believe we are already in to April and Easter is just around the corner!!  I talk a lot about healthy eating, but I have never been a believer of trying to eat healthy for holidays.   I usually have traditional family recipes that I like to make for holidays.  My line of thinking is that they only come once a year, and how much you eat on a particular day isn’t going to make or break your diet or waistline :-).  You do have to be careful when it turns into a week of eating fattening leftovers though....more

Milk and Bread

I’ve been on a mission to use up gallons of raw milk. Boyfriend is part of a herdshare program and that comes with two gallons of milk every week. Just because we went on a road trip to South Carolina for a few days, that did not mean the cows took a break from milking....more

Hi everyone, it's Cait again! Did you enjoy Jeff's post last night? And he thought he had writing skills of an 8th grader? I don't think so. His post was great-and so was that caramel frappe that he made! I told him not to make me once since it wasn't the healthiest recipe out there, but I actually ended up just drinking half of his....more

Whole Grains: What's the Problem, People?

I'm old enough to remember when "brown bread" was something exotic and vaguely threatening that only the hippie family down the street was brave enough to eat. As a kid, I assumed there was only one "normal" kind of flour: white. Same thing with rice. And the only variety we got as far as grains were bowls of Cheerios, Cornflakes, or Raisin Bran. But most often, we got our grains in the form of Wonderbread, Oreos, and Poptarts. ...more
