Meatza

I have no complaints with Pizza, it is likely my second favorite food (just behind quesadillas), but I also like changing things up, and meatza is definitely something different. It is also a great meal for making with friends.

Slow Carb Bagels

As much as I love the Slow Carb Diet for getting things done, e.g. dropping some pounds, sometimes you just need something that looks like bread and quacks like bread. That is why I love this bagel recipe so much. It is maybe a bit far from tasting like normal bread,...

Braised Chicken & Veggies

  I’m finally learning to use my cast iron dutch oven for good rather than evil (fried potatoes anyone?). So far our favorite meal  involves chicken leg & thigh combos and vegetables. Brandie usually prefers light meat over dark, but this recipe is one...

Kielbasa and Cabbage

This is a staple  in our house. A once-a-week meal that we look forward to. Two ingredients (and a bit of oil/seasoning) is all it takes and it fills you up. 5.0 from 1 reviews Kielbasa and Cabbage   Print Prep time 5 mins Cook time 15 mins Total time 20 mins...

Nacho Lasagna

Somewhere I came across a recipe scrap that was titled “Super Nachos” and my life was forever changed. I’m not sure whether I’ve ever followed the recipe exactly, it calls for 3 sets of layers and I think the most I’ve ever done is two. I...

Deconstructed Turkey

I don’t think I’ll cook a whole turkey ever again. Not when you break it down beforehand, season the light and dark meat separately, and use the entire carcass for making stock and gravy (before you’ve even cooked the meat). I believe this recipe...

Crispy Chickpeas

Adam and I, plus the rest of the Qwerty Crew, were heading to the movies a couple weeks after we started the slow carb diet, and all I could think about was popcorn. What kinds of snacks am I going to have at the movies if I can’t have popcorn or candy!? I love...

Goopy Carbonara

  We (Brandie and I) first saw this recipe in The Sims 3, but it wasn’t until the Food Wishes version that we decided we needed to try it ourselves. This has become a favorite of ours. Even when you don’t make it perfectly (like you will see happened this...

Lentil Burgers with Tzatziki

(Adventures with Raw Milk is on break this week. I tried a cream cheese recipe twice that did not come out, so instead I’m going to write about a nice meal we had for dinner last week.)
Brandie is responsible for this great dinner. She wanted lentil burgers, she tracked down this recipe and she did most of the work. I’m just writing about it because I was lazy and didn’t have anything else prepared for this week.

Adventures With Raw Milk Part 3: Ricotta (I Think?)

Last time on Adventures With Raw Milk we thought we were making ricotta, but it turns out that ricotta literally means “recooked”, so to get something closer to classic ricotta, you need to recook the whey saved after making cheese.
