Real Food Wednesday 3/9/11

March 9, 2011 · 76 comments


It’s that crazy time of the week when you entice us with your links and comments to go check out your blogs and your great REAL FOOD WEDNESDAY tips and ideas or recipes! (If you’re a blogger, you’ll draw some good traffic to your site…) 

First, can you help?

1.  It’s not easy for me to catch them all on my own, and I’d really like everyone to play fair, so if you see any posts that don’t link back to this post (blog carnival etiquette you know!) , can you email me please?  (I hate playing hardball and removing links, so let’s all be good to the others who are bringing more traffic to your blogs with their links by doing the same, OK?) 

2.  Also, PLEASE let me know if you see a post that is blatantly not Real Food.  Someone who is striving and on the journey is one thing (as we all are), but if it’s really bad (canned bread, Velveeta, margarine, Egg Beaters, unfermented soy or any other fake food), please tell me so I can remove it.  (If I’ve removed your post, I hope there are no hard feelings, but people come to this post for Real Food ideas, and I don’t want to disappoint.)

3.  I hope you’ll retweet and stumble this post and also any sites you visit – this will get more exposure to all of us, thank you!

4.  Don’t have a blog?  We still want to hear from you!  Please leave your tips or recipes in the comments.

Thank you!

You’re up, and we can’t wait to see your stuff!

    I have a simple, yet refreshing, parsley-garlic dip.

    Hi Kelly,
    Today’s post is a recipe for a wonderful chicken stew. Thanks for hosting.



    3 Denise @ Creative Kitchen March 9, 2011 at 12:32 am

    I’m sharing a tasty & filling Mexican Omelette made with pastured, free-range eggs (my friend’s backyard chickens!!) This has been a favorite here at our home for the past few weeks…hence, family tested & kid-approved!

    Thanks for hosting!!! I really am enjoying getting around these Real Food food blogs!

    Happy Mid-week!


    5 Ravi March 9, 2011 at 12:48 am

    Wednesday yet again! Started digging into the history of garlic and found that this overwhelming plant group has some auspicious historical roots – and they are NOT in food but in folk medicine – the investigation has us pretty much putting garlic (as lovingly and often as we used to use it for flavoring) back into the medicine cabinet where it may just be better off! a compelling bit of learning–

    Hi Kel! The craziness at casa clark continues! College acceptances are rolling in and now she wants to go back to the schools to make sure of her choice! Loads going on! Hope all is well with you and your lovely family. Today I am linking up a lovely recipe for moist and tender chicken. Just flip that chicken! Big hugs! Alex

    Thanks again for hosting Kelly. Already some interesting stuff posted here–great info on garlic by Ravi and man that parsley garlic dip sounds good. Yeah I am into garlic–I confess–especially since I have a mold problem–but it’s getting dealt with! I guess there is a time for everything under heaven and maybe there is a time for garlic and a time not for garlic. Ok I’m rambling…I added a tantalizing appetizer with great mouth feel and delectable flavors–check it out–seared eggplants are like candy when drizzled with pomegranate vinegar and cooked in coconut oil. YUM.


    8 Penniless Parenting March 9, 2011 at 2:07 am

    I shared my favorite vegetable, broccoli rabe (among other wild mustards) and how to identify, pick, and prepare this especially nutritious green. Best of all, its organic, local, and free.


    9 Trisha March 9, 2011 at 6:08 am

    I just linked up a Bean and Spinach bake!!! you’ve got a good collection of recipes at your blog hop!


    10 Soli March 9, 2011 at 6:41 am

    I made chicken broth over the weekend and decided it was high time to write my own primer on this frugal and nourishing food.


    11 Jenn March 9, 2011 at 6:49 am

    I’ve posted a small thought about the term “food snob” and how it should be reclaimed. I’ve resolved to spend this week being a food snob to try to get myself back on track and lose a little weight I put on from indulging too much in the junk food snacks that are readily available around the office.


    12 Lynn March 9, 2011 at 6:51 am

    Thanks for hosting!! Looks like lots of great recipes this week. I always look forward to real food wed. I am sharing my asparagus roll ups! made my style with blue cheese!


    13 Adrienne @ Whole New March 9, 2011 at 6:52 am

    Kelly, Thanks so much again for hosting this great way to connect! I have shared another delicious, healthy dessert that passed with flying colors both at home and at a church potluck. A reader wrote to say that she took it to an outing and finally felt good about giving her children seconds!

    There are lots of substitutions for those on special diets as well.



    14 Sarah, The Healthy Home Economist March 9, 2011 at 7:05 am

    Thanks for hosting, Kel! I hope folks enjoy this grain free pizza crust that I’ve been using only for a few weeks. :)


    15 Suzy March 9, 2011 at 7:07 am

    Hi Kelly,
    I shared some information about a new program at Whole Foods that rates the way livestock is raised. I don’t shop at Whole Foods much because there are none near me, but when I lived in Southern California I shopped there often and would have loved to know how my food was raised.


    16 Kelly the Kitchen Kop March 9, 2011 at 7:11 am

    I’m actually linking to this on Monday (trying to do posts a little ahead lately to de-stress a tad!), so don’t be surprised to see this again there. :) Thanks!


    17 Sharon March 9, 2011 at 7:14 am

    Some useful remedies from the Woodwife’s kitchen. How would you incorporate these in a real foods diet? Salads, teas, ontoast? Thanks for hosting!


    18 Cristina March 9, 2011 at 7:55 am

    Hi Kelly,
    New Blogger here, entering my first post on your site. Thank you for the opportunity!


    19 KitchenKop March 12, 2011 at 12:38 am

    Welcome Cristina. :)


    20 Belinda @zomppa March 9, 2011 at 8:18 am

    Another great list!! Those omelettes…that flank steak…need to try those!


    21 Sara March 9, 2011 at 8:27 am

    Thanks for hosting another great RFW! I love looking through all the posts! I shared links to a post I did this week on GMOs, plus some recipes for Marbled Whole Wheat Brownies and Grain-Free Cheese Crisps.


    22 Therese - Artistta March 9, 2011 at 8:29 am

    This is a post that takes a closer look at how are eating habits, food access, farming practices and so forth changed during the 20th century. This is a 2 part series and is a part of a new ongoing series about Real Food on my blog. Before I dived into sharing information about the importance, the nutritional value and the necessity of real foods in our diet, I wanted my reader to understand were many of our food values originated. Today we see the end affect of the decisions that were made in the 20th century. It’s amazing to see how much has really changed in a little over 100 years.


    23 jenna Food WIth Kid Appeal March 9, 2011 at 8:36 am

    “mom, you’re national” my 7 yo replied when I told him one of my recipes was featured on the PBS Kitchen Explorer blog. this week i’m sharing a naturally green st. patty’s day recipe i got to share with the PBS world.

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly! I posted one of my favorite go-to in a hurry recipes for super-easy butternut-squash chili! Delicious, grain-free, and ready to eat from start to finish in 20 minutes!


    27 Michelle March 9, 2011 at 8:45 am

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly! I left a recipe for a wonderful banana bread with pure maple syrup as the sweetener. It is moist and delicious! :)


    28 Lyuba March 9, 2011 at 8:46 am

    Thank you for holding this party! I wanted to add your button or link to my blog, but I don’t see one. Do you have a url I can post?


    29 KitchenKop March 12, 2011 at 12:39 am

    Hi Lyuba, just use the URL from this post above. Thanks. :)


    30 Heather@Food Ponderings March 9, 2011 at 8:46 am

    I posted for the first time in a long time! I went coffee free for 6 weeks, and survived to tell the tale. Also, I have a recipe posted for a potato starch sponge cake that I am making tonight for a guest!


    31 Kristia@Family Balance Sheet March 9, 2011 at 8:47 am

    My new food addiction is roasted garlic. I had to fight my 5 year old for the roasted garlic and sun-dried tomato hummus. It was that good!


    32 Ami @ The Honey Swell March 9, 2011 at 8:52 am

    This week I’m sharing a new super yummy meatball recipe!

    Wanna change your thyroid symptoms naturally? Maybe the answer is right in that sandwich bread you are eating…

    37 Amanda Dittlinger March 9, 2011 at 9:46 am

    I love Real Food Wednesdays! I posted a link on how to fix messed up homemade mayo. I’ve used this method twice now to fix batches that otherwise would have been no good!


    38 Lisa @ Happy in Dole Valley March 9, 2011 at 10:10 am

    Today I’m sharing our latest “healthified” muffin – Chocolate Buttermilk Muffins. These turned out great and made my husband super happy. :) Thanks for hosting, Kelly! Blessings to all. ~Lisa


    39 Pamela March 9, 2011 at 10:16 am

    Today I am sharing an old posting Foolproof “Healthy Homemade Mayonnaise”. Next time round once my antiquated and very limping along computer is replaced very soon, I’ll be back to share the bone broth I made a few weeks ago a day or so after our chicken butchering day.


    40 Antihousewife March 9, 2011 at 10:49 am

    I have wanted to have sausage for breakfast lately, but it’s hard to find a good spicy variety that is filler/nasty stuff free. This is my solution – buy some ground pork and make the sausage yourself! I hope you guys like the results!


    41 Melanie, One Wellness March 9, 2011 at 11:15 am

    Try a gluten free and delicious recipe for Beef and Peppers, plus a whole lot more! Look for my link above, or link in from my website. Enjoy!
