Real Food Wednesday 4/27/11

April 27, 2011 · 84 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!

    I shared a great recipe for lamb chops in a video, one of my favorite foods for depression. This is a great time of year to shop for deals on lamb at your local grocery store. To boot, commercial lamb is basically grass fed.

    Hi Kelly, thank you for hosting. I’m sharing a great spring recipe made from forage – a meat rub made from roasted dandelion roots. It’s sort of smokey and deep, and altogether tasty.

    I linked up a guest post from nutritionist Julie Matthews about different diets to help with autism. Seventy percent of kids improve with dietary intervention!

    Today I’m sharing a recipe for coconut fig balls.
    Thanks Kelley!
    Best wishes-

    Thanks Kelly! I am a long time reader and excited to jump in with my new blog.

    I posted about my (successful) attempts to adjust regular muffin recipes for soaked muffins. Scroll down to What’s Cookin’?

    Hi Kelly,

    Thanks for hosting! This week I’ve linked up Hungarian Meatballs with Noodles…a favorite of my girls!!

    I’m very excited as tomorrow I’ll be moving Creative Kitchen into my very own domain!! New url, so I’m hoping my readers all find me :) I also moved my blog from blogger to wordpress, so have been cramming about a month or so of learning into just 8 days. LOL! I’m almost to the other side…Yay!!

    I’d love if you were able to stop by sometime this week. I’m a Real Food blogger (though not traditional foods). I’m aimed at helping families to get off the SAD (standard american diet) of processed foods and eating out…and help that cooking from scratch & eating REAL food doesn’t have to be scary. Have a great week!!

    My “prepper” friends tell me I need to be storing food. But I don’t like that freeze-dried blech they sell, so I developed a plan of my own.


    10 Belinda @zomppa April 27, 2011 at 2:07 am

    Thanks for hosting again! Hungarian meatballs got my name all over them!


    11 hellaD April 27, 2011 at 3:22 am

    Hey Kelly thanks for hosting, I just added New Zealand’s national dish, white bait fritters, simple, nourishing and oh so fresh is how they make em. Unfortunately I have to use silver-fish as a substitute, which any good Kiwi will tell you is NOT anything close to white bait–to be honest they look the same to me ;op Hope there aren’t any real Kiwi’s reading this…I am just a wanna be Kiwi….

    Hi Kelly,
    I shared my GF Coconut Banana Blueberry Bars with a video demonstration and an article about the benefits of pastured eggs. I hope you like them!


    15 Debbi Does Dinner Healthy April 27, 2011 at 6:36 am

    My recipe today does contain a jarred sauce, I don’t know if you allow this or not. If not, just let me know! Thanks!


    16 Soli @ I Believe In Butter April 27, 2011 at 6:57 am

    Happy Wednesday! I have a link roundup to share this week.


    17 Rhi@The Challenged Cook April 27, 2011 at 7:29 am

    I’ve shared my recipe for maple almond cakes. They’re sweetened with maple syrup, and have very little flour, but plenty of butter and ground almonds. Enjoy.


    18 Megh April 27, 2011 at 8:07 am

    Thanks for hosting! I put up my butterscotch pudding recipe that I made yesterday, it was yum!!


    19 Lisa @ Happy in Dole Valley April 27, 2011 at 8:41 am

    I’ve shared links to grain-free Parmesan spinach bread and homemade mint ice cream (including a GAPS-legal option). Thanks for hosting!


    21 Jennie@ Pure Homemaking April 27, 2011 at 8:55 am

    Thanks for hosting Kelly-today I posted a recipe about getting used to drinking green smoothies and an easy beginner recipe that’s easily adaptable. I’d love for you to stop by some time and say hello!


    22 Ruth April 27, 2011 at 9:25 am

    I shared a link for what to use if your recipe calls for a graham cracker crust, but you want to use something more healthy. I love this with cheesecake!


    23 Alex Lewin April 27, 2011 at 9:26 am

    I shared my story about the Organic Consumers Association campaign, Millions Against Monsanto. This is a great chance to really make a difference.


    24 Jill @ The Prairie Homestead April 27, 2011 at 9:30 am

    Today I’m sharing an exciting giveaway for a quart of organic coconut oil from Tropical Traditions! Some of the best stuff you can buy.
    Thanks for hosting!


    25 Wardeh @ GNOWFGLINS April 27, 2011 at 9:32 am

    Hi, Kelly and all! I haven’t participated in awhile but I thought I’d stop by today and share my 6 tips for preventing “sour” sourdough. Sourdough doesn’t have to be sour! Have a great day!


    26 Kimberly Hartke April 27, 2011 at 9:41 am

    This Commodity Cropism Video will wake up America! Take a peak and pass it on. Commodity Crops are costing us our health and destroying the environment!

    Hi Kelly,
    This is my first time linking up here – thank you so much for hosting!

    I am sharing a recipe for one of my family’s favorite side dishes – Garlic Carrot Potatoes! They are sooo pretty and sooo yummy. My husband absolutely loves them!



    29 Joanna April 27, 2011 at 10:03 am

    Thanks for hosting Kelly! I’m linking my post about reading ingredient labels and what to avoid – great for real food newbies!


    30 Kim April 27, 2011 at 10:05 am

    I left a comment for throw chicken casserole. Yay! I’m off to check out links!


    31 Pam April 27, 2011 at 10:10 am

    PLEASE FORGIVE ME! My first drop scone link is incorrect – I posted the second corrected one – I should not have done it so early!


    32 Tina (PinayInTexas) April 27, 2011 at 10:34 am

    Linking up a Filipino dessert called Pichi-pichi which is made from grated cassava, sugar and water and then coated with grated coconut.
    Thanks for another week of hosting!


    33 Melissa @ Dyno-mom April 27, 2011 at 10:57 am

    I am looking forward to getting back out there this week! I posted a how-to for perfectly hard boiled eggs with not green but golden creamy yolks that DON’T suck the moisture from your mouth! Basic skill, I know, but valuable none the less. Thanks, Kelly!


    34 Melissa Fritcher April 27, 2011 at 10:59 am

    I made certain dietary changes only a few days before the Holiday weekend, and after all the menu planning had been done. See how I turned things around to make it a much healthier experience, still enjoyed myself, and lost 5 pounds that week.


    35 Crunchy Pickle April 27, 2011 at 11:16 am

    Here’s some inspiration when you feel like you aren’t getting ANYWHERE in your weight-loss/health journey!


    36 Marelie April 27, 2011 at 11:47 am

    37 Krystal April 27, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    This is my first time participating in the Real Food Wednesday blog carnival. I posted Skillet-Baked Oatmeal, a personalized version of Sue’s. ;) Thank you for hosting this, Kelly! I always get so many great ideas and recipes from the blogs. :)


    38 Andrea (Andreas Kitchen) April 27, 2011 at 12:32 pm

    Hi Kelly! I am sharing my recipe for Cauliflower Chopped Salad. I created it to mimic a gourmet pasta salad but with cauliflower instead of the pasta. It has artichoke hearts, salami, sun dried tomatoes and lots more!
    Thanks for hosting!


    39 Tressa R April 27, 2011 at 12:35 pm

    Wow, lots of great links already! I am sharing my recipe for Baked Eggs with Swiss Chard and Fresh Herbs. I hope you’ll try it and let me know what you think.


    40 Ashley April 27, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    Hi everyone, today I’m sharing about my experience trying honey as a facial cleanser.

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly!


    41 Maggie @ Maggie's Nest April 27, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    Simple, homemade yogurt. GAPS-friendly. Yum!


    42 Durga Fuller April 27, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    Hi – I’m sharing about pesto, all the ways it can be used and all the ways it can be made. It’s not just pasta and basil!

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly -


    43 Jenn April 27, 2011 at 2:46 pm

    I love Real Food Wednesdays! Such an inspiration!


    44 dani April 27, 2011 at 3:08 pm

    I added my recipe for Cheesy Bacon-y Stuffed Peppers, thanks for hosting!


    45 Lori @ The Davidson Den April 27, 2011 at 4:03 pm

    Contributing a cheeseball recipe. It’s to die for!!


    46 Amber April 27, 2011 at 6:17 pm

    I’m sorry, Kelly, mine’s on there twice b/c I tried to fix the fact that I forgot to add the recipe name at first — so the first “The Mommy Earth” one (#89) I wanted to delete but couldn’t. Anyway, I posted a recipe for Chicken Rice Soup, linked correctly at #91.


    47 Deirdre April 27, 2011 at 8:57 pm

    After an unusually warm April Wed (mid 80s in northern VT!), I was in the mood for a cool, refreshing and substantial milkshake. Raw milk with sweet potatoes, maybe a bit of ginger is just the thing. Whatever you have left, goes into popsicle molds in the freezer for the tastiest creamsicles once summer really arrives. Loving real food!


    48 Megh April 27, 2011 at 9:29 pm

    Unfortunately I’m thinking the Dark Chocolate Cake using Hellmann’s mayo (#92) probably isn’t really a good fit here … :( Maybe if it used real, homemade, olive oil/coconut oil, lacto-fermented mayo :)


    49 Joy @ Graceful Words April 28, 2011 at 12:48 am

    Thank you so much for hosting! I’m linking up a Tropical Traditions Giveaway for Certified Organic Raw Honey–it’s so delicious! :)


    50 Amy April 28, 2011 at 1:42 am

    I shared my recipe for Leftovers Lentil Salad using roast wild pork and my own homemade feta. Looking forward to checking out the others!
    Thanks for hosting :)


    51 Eve April 28, 2011 at 2:25 am

    Thanks to Amber from The Mommy Earth blog for her post about Chicken Rice soup, which also reminded me of Real Food Wednesday! Love this Link up!


    52 Paleo Diet in a box June 8, 2013 at 6:13 pm

    Clearly that’s a problem with our society and the Paleo In A Box generally. The idea is to match how our bodies are genetically engineered to the foods we are eating, or even overnight. There is a lot more to write about so maybe if Annie leaves her computer on, so I decided to see for myself. These are all natural food that our forefathers for many centuries flourished in.
