The Artisan Kitchen

Many of you may have noticed a while back that I added a new page.  It was time to act on a desire to create a recipe index, to make finding our whole foods recipes a simple task.  I needed to just begin, as it has been on my very long list of things to get to for longer than I would care to admit.  So I did it.  I created the page.  I took that first step, and I began.

Since that initial beginning, it has looked pretty quiet over at the artisan kitchen for quite some time now, but I am pleased to announce that I have been working diligently behind the scenes to breathe life into this fledgling creation.  I have added many links to existing recipes here on the blog, hoping to make it a littler easier to access your favorites, and plan to continue creating and publishing nourishing recipes that encompass our families’ food values.  Whole, mostly organic, plant and pasture based with a strong traditional influence, allow us to nurture and thrive on this beautiful homesteading path.  This is what meets the criteria within our artisan kitchen.

I would love to support and encourage you on your whole foods journey and plan to continue to grow our list of recipes as we share this space with other kindred souls.  Beautiful, whole, deeply nourishing food is one of the main motivations behind our homesteading lifestyle. Unprocessed, untainted, old-fashioned food the way it was intended.  Knowing where our food comes from, pasture or garden, woods or field, directly to our family table allows us to be accountable to ourselves and also the marvelous world around us.  Simple, basic, bursting with taste, and flavored with salt, smoke, herbs, and spices allows the natural beauty of the food to shine through.  It is in sharing my journey in the artisan kitchen with you that I hope to inspire you to create for yourself and your family alongside me.

I invite you now to head on over to The Artisan Kitchen, check it out, find some inspiration, and join me.  If you will, in the comments, let me know what you think, and what you would like to see more of in the future as we expand and grow.
