Ok, um. This is delicious. And since we’re in the middle of an “elimination diet” where we’re not having dairy, gluten, or eggs, a treat like this tastes especially good! The nutritionist where we saw our functional medicine doctor shared this recipe with me, which came from Golden Barrel. Looks like there are all kinds of great recipes over there that I’m going to have to explore! If you like fudge, and want to make it healthy, give this a try! DELICIOUS. Yes.

I’ve been intrigued by tumeric lately as it seems to be a great herb for many immune system related issues. I recently tried a tumeric latte, which was delicious, and today saw this post by The Simple Times for a “Immune Boosting Ginger Tumeric Lemon Shot.” Head over to their site to see the very simple recipe, and be well!

I bought an ice cream maker years ago and haven’t even tried using it yet! After reading this post by Fresh Eggs Daily I’m going to go get it out! Just got fresh milk and cream the other day so it’s a perfect time to try it!

At our old house we had lemon balm growing. I loved the smell of it when we accidentally mowed over some of it, but I never really took advantage of using it the way I could have! After moving to our new homestead, I realized that I had missed out on all the good properties of lemon balm, and found some plants on sale last year at a garden sale. They came back up very nicely this year in my herb garden off the side of our deck, and now after reading this lovely post from The Simple Times, I look forward to utilizing this fragrant and useful herb!

Jessica from Shower of Roses shared a delicious sounding way to celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday today. I’m always behind with the novena and everything leading up to this very special day, so I appreciate it when I can see a simple way to get our children’s attention and incorporate the meaning and history of Divine Mercy Sunday. Here is a link to her post on her website. Always a great resource!
I just discovered a blog called Minimalist Baker due to a delicious sounding “Three Ingredient Ginger Tea Latte” post I saw on Facebook. I’m a new follower and this recipe looked delicious! I have raw milk so I’m using that, and it is extremely tastey. I like almond milk as well, so when I have that on hand, I will make it that way too!
We used to do this all the time at home with my parents. My dad is about half Polish. I remember him taking our Easter basket of newly stuffed sausages and eggs, some wine and some bread to our priest on Holy Saturday for a blessing. I think we were the only ones doing it then!

This is another recipe I would like to try, namely for the frosting recipe! My friend Jenny at Au Naturale Nutrition posted this a bit ago and I’ve been meaning to try it. I don’t have all the ingredients yet but I’m hoping to get to it in the near future. Reading her post made me aware of some things I didn’t know about oats for instance. I’m not totally gluten free but if this is as tastey as it looks, and the kids like it, I think it could be a great treat!
I just heard of this recipe for Bannock on Melissa K Norris dot com. Never heard of it before, but it sounds tastey and like something our family would enjoy! According to her website, “Bannock is a simple bread, traditionally made in aboriginal cultures. The potato variation is a Canadian heritage recipe” – which sounds interesting to me! Have you tried it?
Despite a hands on tutorial of making freshly ground wheat berry whole wheat bread, which turned out well when my instructor was here, I cannot seem to duplicate last week’s bread making success this morning. I took my woes to FB and discovered a recipe (and other tips) that sounds like something I may need to try. It’s called My Mother’s Peasant Bread. I “bing’d” and found the recipe and a lovely set of images and instructions at Alexandra’s Kitchen here. So it’s not actually MY mother’s peasant bread recipe, but it must be someone’s mother’s 🙂
After I do something with the non-rising blob of dough I made this morning, I’m going to give this recipe a shot! Let me know if you try it and have success!
