    This week I used roadkill elk to recreate a delicious restaurant dish that I often crave. With just a few ingredients, and the right technique, it’s easy to make an amazing sticky garlic ginger crust on stir-fried red meat.

    How awesome! I always feel so sad when I see squirrels and birds on the side of the road and sometimes not even getting taken by the carrion eaters. Seems like such a waste.

    Kelly – If it hadn’t have been for seeing you Tweet Real Food Wednesdays I would have forgotten it had even been the day for it. I had just tweeted the post I finished up so went back and linked it to RFW.
    My subject this week is “Getting to know your Local CSA’s”. We attended the 12th annual one in our area for the first time a few weeks back. I also added an item about the goats milk soap with an added ingredient that left me not buying from from one of the vendors there.

    Hi, Kelly.
    This week I’ve written about the dangers of fructose eaten in excessive amounts, especially as high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS). HFCS is added to thousands of processed foods, sodas, and flavored milks. Like sucrose (table sugar), HFCS contributes way too much fructose to our diets. I address some health concerns of an overabundance of fructose, as well as some concerns linked to HFCS itself.
    Thanks!

    There are lots of great applications for the iPhone/iPod Touch. Today I review “Don’t Eat That”, a terrific resource for deciphering food ingredients! Never again do you need to wonder what Alpha-Methyl Benzyl Butyrate is, what TBHQ stands for or if Diacetyl Tartaric Acid of Mono-and Glycerides will worsen a soy allergy.

    I posted about my (failed?) first attempt at rendering lard. There’s also a bit of interesting WAPF-like talk about my boyfriend’s cousin who moved here from China.

    this week I’m sharing the script I would have used for a video to send to Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution campaign/show. He sent out a call for videos about what “our” food revolution was. life intervened and I didn’t get to make a video, but I sent my script in and posted to share with readers.

    I posted a quick analysis of the issue of phytic acid in coconut flour. It’s apparently been somewhat controversial of late.

    My post this week is not specifically food-related, but instead focuses on an alternative healing technique I couldn’t live without during allergy season.

    Nothing controversial here…just good food, plain and simple. Isn’t that what it’s all about?

    My post this week is just an opinion piece. It’s my opinion on why my family has reached a “do or die” point in our eating habits. This is my effort to convince others (especially my own family members) that they need to start making changes now.

    Hi Kelly!
    I’ve been making a minimal knead sourdough sandwich bread for awhile. Today I’m sharing a variation on the original recipe which my family prefers. It has a very mild sourdough flavor and even my 19 year old daughter who doesn’t care for whole wheat sourdough likes it.

    I posted a delicious recipe for a pasta and fish in an herbed tomato sauce – Penne in Guazzetto. It could easily be converted to a gluten-free dish with alternative pastas. The dish is delicious and economical, and we loved it!

    After someone asked me the other day about making green smoothie leathers – My brand spankin’ new post today is about dehydrating green smoothies (and you can try our favorite green smoothie recipe too if you dare). :)

    I had all these bits of left over bread gathering in my freezer so this week I made Amish Bread Pudding. A very easy and delicious recipe.

    A simple, basic recipe – soaked grain banana muffins. If you have children, you have to have banana muffins and these are a favorite at our house.

    Hope you enjoy this almond flour pancake recipe! I whipped some up for the first time last Friday night and my husband and I were delighted with how they turned out!

    Well, I don’t have my own blog like everyone else seems to. I don’t know what stumble is or how it works. I just wanted to add that I am making a cheese pie for dinner tonight. It’s my grandmother’s recipe, but instead of store-bought cottage cheese I will use homemade cream cheese from yogurt. Sally Fallon’s recipe. Also using her flaky crust recipe. My grandmother never wrote her recipes down. It was always a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

    Linda,
    I do have a blog, but I have no idea how to stumble or tweet. Just wanted you to know you are not alone. Thanks for posting about your cheese pie. Is it something like a quiche? I only recently heard the term “cheese pie” so I don’t know exactly what that is. Thanks again!!

    I left a post on great skin food, and how beneficial bacteria are vital in the health of our body & skin. Our gut is the main detoxification system in our body, so having beneficial bacteria -through making sauerkraut, or taking probiotics- is worth considering.

    Hi Connie,
    I ‘d say it is like a quiche. I think My grandmother made it up herself. It has cottage cheese, eggs, vanilla extract, a little sugar and cinnamon. I have always loved it. When I was on my low fat, low cholesterol diet I thought I could never eat it again. Ha!

    My post gives the recipe for the Spring Lamb we enjoyed on Easter Sunday. This lamb was cooked on the bone in the old way, and was great!

    Very late, I know, but I just wanted to share some gardening inspiration with my real food friends. Time to get planting some real food!

    Hi Kelly! This is my first time posting on Real Food Wednesday. I’m fairly new to real food (have been taking baby steps for the past year or so), so I posted my menu plan. There are some things that could use improvement, but for the most part, I’d say it’s a pretty good plan! :)

    I write a blog called Spoonfed: Raising kids to think about the food they eat. Just posted a link to yesterday’s post about raising conscious eaters who aren’t judgmental of other kids: http://spoonfedblog.net/2010/04/07/preachy-little-foodies-and-how-not-to-have-one/

    Now I’m off to add a link back here!

    ummm, #26 I think you got lost on your way to a processed food blog carnival? jell-o pudding, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla wafers?

    Pamela,
    Did you see this one? http://kellythekitchenkop.com/2010/01/homemade-breakfast-cereal-homemade-granola-snack-from-cheeseslave.html

    The oats are soaked, not cooked first though…?
