Making My Home A Haven is important to me. Sharing homemaking skills. Recipes and food. Bible Studies. This is a treasure chest of goodies. So take a seat. Have a glass of tea and enjoy. You will learn all about who I am.
I’m never sure how one measures a “bunch” of anything. I used my own home-grown parsley, and simply went by “feel” on it. Which I think is entirely appropriate.
A recipe from The City Tavern Cookbook: Recipes from the Birthplace of American Cuisine, by Walter Staib. This one is on page 218. Part of the CookingBites Cookbook Game, #6. Which is where we make a recipe exactly as written from a print cookbook that sits in our home. (Yes, you can dial down the size if you are cooking for one! Or for a few other, explained, reasons. I made a variant for four, while the original recipe served 8.)
As we get ready for the holiday season, it’s time to start thinking about our holiday dinner menu. Will you serve a ham, wild turkey or a juicy game hen? Regardless of the meat, a good stuffing recipe is needed to accompany this feast. In Laura Ingalls Wilder’s These Happy Golden Years, (and mentioned in other books), cornbread stuffing plays a big role at dinner, especially since it’s topped with bacon…….
This recipe is part of Barbara Walker’s cookbook, The Little House Cookbook: Frontier Foods from Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Classic Stories. We adapted the original recipe by adding a few more ingredients to it for color and flavor, such as red and green peppers and onion. The recipe also calls for adding seasoning and sage to the cornbread mixture after it’s baked. We decided to sprinkle the sage on top of the cornbread mixture before baking it.
From Sarah : I have this wonderful cookbook. I also have Melissa’s Gilbert’s “My Prairie Cookbook”. Little House On The Prairie was a favorite TV show. We watched it as a family. I had all of the book when I was a child. When my niece started reading , she got her own set.
From Sarah: I was going to add some more photos but was having trouble uploading them. Love And Hugs, Sarah
“This month I’ve been talking about all things SIMPLY COZY and I can’t really do that without talking about some meal planning. Having meals prepped and ready or in the slow cooker is probably my #1 trick to keeping things simple and easy. Throw a delicious home-cooked meal on the table and that’s the definition of cozy. Not to mention, it’s just plain really helpful during this busy time of the year. Here are some of my tried and true favorites – I love cookbooks that offer some strategies and tips for keeping dinner easy. Need a quick gift or a little inspiration for the meal times after the new year? These are sure to help!”
