8 organic pastured eggs

GMO Free

GMO’s in the News

Lots going on this month, including the news that Zika is caused by a Monsanto larvicide. Very sad, but not surprising… We are gaining ground though – Hershey’s is getting rid of GMO sugar beets and the more we boycott GM foods, the manufacturers will listen. Vote with your food dollars!

Love,

Mom

Whole Chicken and Broth in a pressure cooker

Instant Pot

Electric Pressure Cooker

I got an Instant Pot for Christmas. I actually got a few gift cards and used them to buy one for myself. I do use a pressure cooker for canning in the summer, but have never cooked a meal in one.

Originally, I was looking at another brand and saw the Instant Pot as another option. I had never heard of this brand but once I started reading the reviews on Amazon, I was convinced. LOL

I’ve been using it for over a month and just love it. I’ve made the best beef stew we’ve ever had in an hour. I also cooked a whole spaghetti squash in eight minutes.

Blueberry Coffee Cake – Gluten Free

I’ve been trying to make a coffee cake that was close to Ina Garten’s recipe that I put up a few years ago, but that was gluten free. This one comes very close! If you’re blueberries are frozen – let them warm up or it will take longer to cook.

Slow Cooker Osso Buco

Osso Buco

Slow Cooker Osso Buco

I had some grass fed beef shanks in the freezer that I wasn’t sure what to do with, when I found a slow cooker Osso Buco recipe on the Cuisinart site. Perfect! I adapted it to beef, organic and instead of using canned tomatos used some of my San Marzano’s that I had frozen this summer. Just chopped them and added in.

It was delicious and we had enough for a few dinners. First we served it over baked Spaghetti Squash and when we ran out of squash ate it with fresh salad and sauerkraut. It takes a little prep work as you start but the flavors are worth it. So easy to make in the slow cooker! And would be wonderful for company too.

This recipe was for my six quart cooker. Enjoy!
