This recipe was inspires by Sally Fallon’s cheesecake recipe from Nourishing Traditions. I find the recipes in this book to be rather bland, when I use them I always add extra salt and spices. This cheesecake is filled with all sorts of healthy, nourishing ingredients: pastured eggs, raw milk yogurt, pastured gelatin, and honey.
My mom’s grandma, aka Grandma Graham, always made the perfect pie crusts from scratch. It’s a simple recipe, though slightly different from others you’ll see because it contains an egg and some vinegar. I’ve tweaked the recipe a bit by swapping out 1/4 of the lard for butter, this adds extra flavor to the final […]
It’s long been a tradition in my family to gather together on New Year’s Day to eat pork and sauerkraut. When I was young, my grandma was the cook and the entire family packed into her house, cousins, uncles, aunts to help eat the roasters full of kraut that she made. I never liked it […]

Cook one meal each week featuring SOLE (sustainable, organic, local, ethical) ingredients, write about it on your blog and email your happy recapper a link to your post.
It seems like you can hardly find a pumpkin pie recipe that doesn’t call for evaporated or sweetened condensed milk. Pumpkin pie is actually a fairly healthy dessert, especially if you cut back on the sugar a bit and use maple syrup instead. It’s filled with things Weston A Price highly recommends eating like eggs, […]
Many of you gave your home remedy advice on my Saturday post about feeling a little under the weather. Any of you that are friends with me on Facebook saw the photo I posted of the Nourishing Colombian breakfast soup I made Friday morning. This soup is great any day of the week, but […]
Traditionally fermented food are super healthy. It’s always nice when you can make something using these methods. Not only is it quick and easy to make, the end product is healthier than it’s more time-consuming processed counterpart. Pickles are a prime example. I make one kind of vinegar pickles that are canned. The rest of […]
There’s really nothing better than homemade bone broth or stock. It has a depth of flavor that can’t be touched by what you’ll find in a store, even in the expensive organic brands. Bone broths are a deeply nourishing food. They’re also incredibly inexpensive and easy to make yourself at home. If you’re not already […]
The beef we eat comes from the same farm we get our milk from. Their cows spend their days out in the fields eating green grass and feeling the sun on their backs. As a result the meat is really great – tasty and healthy. We eat mostly venison around here because of Mr […]
Actually it was Ginger Venison Stir Fry. Our beef recipes become venison recipes since Mr Chiots is a hunter and we are lucky enough to have 3 deer in the freezer. During the winter we enjoy rich hearty venison stews and warming bowls of venison chili. In the summer I’m much happier eating a venison […]
