Real Food Wednesday 4/20/11

April 20, 2011 · 94 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!  (Visit that link if you’re new and want to learn more about this blog carnival.)  Remember, if you’re a blogger, you’ll draw some good traffic to your site by participating!  (This is how I built up my traffic in the beginning.)


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?  If you don’t know how, I explain it at this REAL FOOD WEDNESDAY link.  (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 recipe posted 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!

    Wonderful seeing you tonight as always! :-) I posted my notes from the meeting. Good stuff, Dan did a great job talking about the pitfalls of a gluten free diet!


    2 Ray - Pure Spontaneity April 20, 2011 at 12:06 am

    More Meatzza and salads with some good pics


    3 Primal Toad April 20, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    I have yet to try a meatzza. I will have to save your recipe and try it very very soon!


    4 Jessica @ Delicious Obsessions April 20, 2011 at 12:09 am

    Thanks again for hosting this! Can’t believe I remembered to check it! Usually, I’m the last one to the party! :) I posted a simple steamed artichoke “how-to”. :)


    5 Amanda Rose April 20, 2011 at 12:10 am

    Hi Kelly. We’re busy with Easter here but I posted a retro video of my mom this week sharing wisdom about deviled eggs. I swear this thing has gotten over 35K views on YouTube and pilgrims may have manufactured the video camera we used: My mama peeling eggs.



    6 Butterpoweredbike April 20, 2011 at 12:11 am

    Wow, April 20! Time flies, yikes. Things are finally growing in my neck of the woods, and I’ve been tromping around the fields and have discovered a new food (new to me) which is super yummy when fried up in lard (oh yeah, I broke out my best lard for this one).


    7 Alea Milham April 20, 2011 at 12:12 am

    Thanks for hosting. I linked up my post on batch cooking veggies, so I can quickly pull dinner together on busy nights.


    8 Melissa Fritcher April 20, 2011 at 12:13 am

    Thank you for this opportunity!


    9 Lee April 20, 2011 at 12:36 am

    My first try with beet kvass. For all of the wonderful benefits I’m supposed to be getting I’m still having a hard time taking it due to the taste. Does anyone have any tips for getting it down?


    10 Kelsy @ The Liberated Kitchen April 20, 2011 at 12:40 am

    This is my first post for Real Food Wednesday – I’m a little nervous! I shared my GAPS diet legal oven fried chicken – I use almond flour for the breading and tallow for the frying.


    11 hobby baker April 20, 2011 at 1:24 am

    Thanks for the round-up! I shared my favorite jam, just gave some to family and it disappeared quickly. I love that it has less than half the sugar of the original recipe so it tastes like fruit and not just sugar.


    12 Tressa R April 20, 2011 at 1:31 am

    Thanks for hosting again Kelly! I am sharing this delicious salad I made the other day, Roasted Beet and Goat Cheese Salad with Toasted Walnuts. I hope you’ll all enjoy it!


    13 Denise @ Creative Kitchen April 20, 2011 at 1:37 am

    I so look forward to linking up to Real Food Wednesdays every week! Thanks for hosting!! I’m sharing my homemade balsamic vinaigrette dressing. I never knew how easy homemade dressings were until a couple years ago. Mind blowing how easy they are! :)

    Have a GREAT week & a BLESSED Easter!!


    14 Kelly @ The Nourishing Home April 20, 2011 at 1:57 am

    Hi, Kelly! thanks so much for allowing us to share recipes! I’ve posted a link to this blog carnival with an note encouraging my friends to come visit you on my FB page. Blessings to you, Kelly


    15 Trisha April 20, 2011 at 2:31 am

    Thanks for hosting yet another week of Real Food Wednesday. I’ve linked up some Crunchy King Fish Slices!


    16 Kal April 20, 2011 at 5:51 am

    Hi Kelly, I linked my menu plan for the week that included two recipes I’m making for Easter – Huevos with Black Bean Hash Browns and French Toast Strata with Raspberries.


    17 Tressa R April 20, 2011 at 12:17 pm

    Oh my! I am going to try that French Toast Strata!!! Thanks for sharing.


    18 Jill April 20, 2011 at 5:52 am

    Hi Kelly,
    I shared my basic brine for pastured chickens and an article about CAFOs. I hope you like them.


    19 Adrienne @ Whole New Mom April 20, 2011 at 6:30 am

    Thanks again, Kelly!

    Well, I know I shared this at your “Help the Easter Bunny” post, but here they are again in case anyone missed them…..a healthy Easter treat, Chocolate Carob Nests w/ Fudge Eggs. Enjoy!


    20 Rhi@The Challenged Cook April 20, 2011 at 6:35 am

    Thank you for this wonderful carnival. So many great posts already. I’ve shared my Naturally Sweet Breadcrumb Pudding, part of a series all about getting rid of sugar and letting the natural sweetness of the ingredients shine through.


    21 Soli @ I Believe In Butter April 20, 2011 at 6:56 am

    Always a joy to participate! I’ve discovered Jerusalem artichokes this week and they’re delicious!


    22 Lori April 20, 2011 at 7:15 am

    Chicken Parmesan…very simple and great for company!!!


    23 Rhi@The Challenged Cook April 20, 2011 at 7:53 am

    Didn’t mean to post the pancakes too, I’m just very new to this pressed the wrong button in my excitement.


    24 Jaime April 20, 2011 at 8:20 am

    Sharing a soaked banana bread – thanks for hosting, Kelly!


    25 Jill @ The Prairie Homestead April 20, 2011 at 8:45 am

    I’m sharing our favorite recipe for homemade pizza crust today. Plus a tip on how to create the perfect homemade pizza at home! Take that, Pizza Hut! :)

    Thanks for hosting RFW Kelly!


    26 Michelle at Openeyehealth April 20, 2011 at 8:45 am

    I shared 5 easy salad dressings that can be whipped up quickly for a lunch or dinner. Thanks for hosting!


    27 Beth April 20, 2011 at 8:46 am

    I posted one of our current favorites: Pizza Rolls. The dc love them. Made with the yogurt dough and grass-fed beef. They would freeze well – I guess, ours never make it that far!

    Scroll down to “What’s Cookin’?” in the post.


    28 dani April 20, 2011 at 8:51 am

    I gave my recipe for bacon-y and cheesy stuffed peppers (grain free). Thanks for hosting, I’ll make sure to link up in my post later today.


    29 Sarah Smith April 20, 2011 at 8:52 am

    Thanks for hosting! I’ve linked to posts on:
    -GAPS-legal banana bread

    Hi Kelly, I submitted my post about your awesome ecourse! Thanks for sharing all you know about real food with so many people.

    You are changing lives!


    31 Megh April 20, 2011 at 9:13 am

    I posted about my new favorite crave — Shad Roe! :)
    Thanks for hosting!


    32 Soli @ I Believe in Butter April 20, 2011 at 9:18 am

    Shad roe is so delicious! It hasn’t made its way into the fish market where I shop yet. Soon, I hope.


    33 Chris@Earth Friendly Goodies April 20, 2011 at 9:40 am

    Well, as I submit a post on square foot gardening recipes and eating right out of your garden — it is SNOWING! Spring oh spring why have you forsaken me? :)

    I sure am looking forward to that garden though…


    34 Kimberly Hartke April 20, 2011 at 2:11 pm

    Chris, you need to join us for our tweet chat this Friday about @sowingmillions @seedsofchange and organic gardening!

    It is 11:00am PST, 2:00pm EST for 1 hour!

    35 Ashley April 20, 2011 at 9:44 am

    Hi RFW gang!

    This week I posted about my first successful attempt at homemade and lacto-fermented ketchup. I hope everyone has a great week! Thanks for hosting, Kelly!


    36 Belinda @zomppa April 20, 2011 at 9:46 am

    Grass-fed butter? Awesome!! And ketchup? You guys are amazing. Melissa@Market this week gives tips on how to make any kind of salad dressing – never need to buy it anymore!


    37 Kristen April 20, 2011 at 9:47 am

    This is my first post – a yummy raw salad made with seasonal sunchokes. Enjoy :-)


    38 Kate @ Modern Alternative Mama April 20, 2011 at 9:58 am

    Shared my post on why low-fat diets are bad. :) It includes a link to my new book, Against the Grain: Delicious Recipes for the Whole Food and Grain-Free Diet (all grain-free and mostly GAPS-friendly recipes!).


    39 Kimberly Hartke April 20, 2011 at 2:16 pm

    Kate, I am so glad. Just yesterday I told the woman who runs my Nana’s elder care residence to PLEASE feed her real food. I went there and there were tubs of margarine, (not a stick of butter) and lots of soy protein nutrition drinks. Yikes!


    40 Melissa @ Dyno-mom April 20, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    It is so scary what people think is food when it comes to institutional food service! Do you have any ideas about how to teach the food service staff about real food? Do they have a staff nutritionist you can talk to? I was hospitalized last fall and if my mother and friends had not prepared REAL food for my husband to bring me, I would have been eating that some garbage. I feel for you!


    41 Jennie April 20, 2011 at 10:09 am

    This is my first time participating in Real Food Wed. What an awesome ways to share ideas. I can’t wait to try some of these recipes! They all look fantastic!


    42 Jennie April 20, 2011 at 10:11 am

    I think I goofed when putting in the name portion and used my name. I shared “Perfect Rainy Day Stoup”. Oops!


    43 roz April 20, 2011 at 10:09 am

    Hi Kelly, Thanks for hosting again each week. I’ve shared a recipe for Farfalle Carbonara with Spring Peas. I hope that you can stop by and share a recipe or two this weekend on my blog hop as well. Happy Spring to you! Roz


    44 Cecilia April 20, 2011 at 10:47 am

    Hi Kelly,
    I love visiting your blog, but this is my first time posting! I couldn’t bear to ruin my free range, organic chicken eggs with a PAAS dye kit, so I played with natural dyes this week. I loved the results, and now my family can eat our easter eggs without me wondering just how much dye ended up in them.


    45 Andrea (Andreas Kitchen) April 20, 2011 at 11:29 am

    Hi Kelly! I am sharing my recipe for Chicken Dijon Stew. It has nice spring flavors and it is really healthy too!
    Thanks for hosting!


    46 Liberty April 20, 2011 at 12:24 pm

    I love linking up here every week – thanks so much for hosting!!


    47 Kate April 20, 2011 at 12:52 pm

    This is my first post at Real Food Wednesday…just a simple smoothie!


    48 Laurie April 20, 2011 at 1:01 pm

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly. Today I shared a post featuring several different dandelion recipes – cookies, wine and infusions. Dandelions are loaded with nutrients. I sure wish I could access mine now – they’re buried under about 7 inches of snow!


    49 Melissa @ Dyno-mom April 20, 2011 at 1:04 pm

    I really do love Wednesdays! There are always so many great things to make on this carnival. Thanks for hosting, Kelly, and thank to all the fab bloggers for such great ideas! I am making an herb dry brine with pine nuts for our leg of lamb for Easter and I shared the recipe and one an easy, but impressive looking, apple and almond tart. See you all around the web!


    50 Ruth Ann Bowen April 20, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    57 Primal Toad April 20, 2011 at 8:13 pm

    Spicy Bacon Jam? Seriously? I need to try that immediately. My primal audience will salivate over it!


    58 Primal Toad April 20, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    I went to your blog and cant find the spicy bacon jam!! What number are you in the linky?


    59 Primal Toad April 20, 2011 at 8:22 pm

    62 Primal Toad April 20, 2011 at 8:12 pm

    I am linking to a post on ALA – the plant form of omega 3 fatty acids. I believe millions misuse this nutrient. In most cases they are doing their body more harm then good. Click on my link, #109 to find out why.


    63 hellaD April 20, 2011 at 9:35 pm

    Yum, it is nice to see all these wonderful recipes and ideas posted here! After trying several attempts I have managed to come up with a delicious grain-free, gluten-free, GAPS and SCD friendly Hot Cross Bun recipe and I have to say everyone loves it, enjoy!
