Look on the internet and you will find lots of recipes for kombucha. Rachel, from Small Notebook, has the clearest directions for homemaking kombucha that I have found. It really is a lot of fun if you haven't tried it. Before I began making my own kombucha, I saved up my G.T.'s kombucha bottles. I use those to store my individual batches of kombucha. It would be fun to buy the home-brewing bottles that Rachel uses though. Maybe one day.

How to Make your Own Kombucha.

Meatloaf from Paleo Musings

Tonight I made this meatloaf for the second time. It has been a huge hit both times I've served it to my family. The recipe comes from the 3/11/12 post on Paleo Musings titled Heavenly Paleo Meatloaf. The first time I made it, I used only pork. Tonight I used one pound of pork and three pounds of beef.

Quinoa Cakes from The Whole Foods Diner

Tonight I made Quinoa Cakes. I thought they were delicious. I'd say my children were about half in agreement to liking them. In my opinion, that isn't bad for a first time offering.

The recipe comes from The Whole Foods Diner, their 4/15/13 post titled Meatless Mondays : Quinoa Cakes. I left out the onions because I didn't want my children to be afraid; I think onions would have made these great cakes even better.


I hope to use this blog as an organizational tool to help me better meal plan and feed my family. Still hoping to use minimal sugar and gluten, this will be an everyday-type, all-encompassing menu blog. Therefore, I will be using categories to try to keep things organized : Season, meal, focus, and possibly even main ingredients.

Some of the categories I am going to start out with are:
gluten free
refined sugar free
dairy free
