It has been a soggy and chilly spring here so far, and we're still craving the comfort foods! Here's what's cookin' at the cabin tonight - inspired by some of the amazing eats we have enjoyed while traveling around south of the Mason-Dixon line. [read more]

Kohlcannon

We're back, with another dose of hearty comfort food, that fits very nicely into a low carb lifestyle! Featuring ground caraway seed, cauliflower and slightly pickled cabbage, Kohl-cannon (from Blumenkohl which is the German name for cauliflower) is a decidedly German twist on Colcannon, a traditional Irish dish made with potatoes. This has quickly become …

Easy Egg Muffins

Hello friends! Last week's conference was an opportunity to test our skill at frugal travel! As I have mentioned here before, we are artists and musicians, relying heavily on the gig economy for our incomes. A hotel room AND restaurant meals was a bit too "spendy" for us. We needed some travel-ready food for both …

Cold & Flu

We're down with colds here today. I have broken out the eucalyptus leaves and added them to some hot water for the fresh, fragrant and therapeutic steam (not for drinking!). Many people skip the leaves entirely and simply diffuse... [read more]

Eggplant Lasagna

This hearty lasagna uses thinly-cut eggplant in place of carb-filled pasta noodles. The trick here is to slice that eggplant nice and thin (slicing the short way makes this easier) before roasting to keep it tender, melt-in-your mouth gooood! We love the subtle, smoky flavor that the roasted eggplant brings to this dish and don't miss those noodles one bit... (read more)

Tallow Seared Steaks

Hearty Sausage & Vegetable Soup

The weather report here is calling for our first possibly major winter storm of the season! We're busy today battening things down here, at our little cabin. We've got a nice big stack of dry wood and kindling ready to go by the woodstove, shovels by the door, flashlights and candles at the ready, some "power optional" projects and reading lined up, and a nice big pot of Hearty Sausage and Vegetable soup simmering on the stove...

Grain Free Waffles

I remember missing bread-like foods when I was first getting started, so I thought that today might be a good time to share this recipe. These waffles are simple to make. They freeze well and you can thaw them quickly in the toaster. Start to finish, you can have a batch of these finished in 30 minutes! Add 2 teaspoons of vanilla and your favorite low carb sweetener for a sweet waffle, or a half cup of your favorite shredded cheese and a pinch of dried herbs for a more savory snack... (read more)
