Food & Recipes


by Julie Branstetter, Th.B. Welcome to everyone's favorite page, of which the purpose is to share the joy of food and cooking. Please know that the purpose of this page is not to help you live a healthy life. That page is labelled 'Health & Fitness". I have to say this because you will find sweets and desserts and BREAD everything considered evil by the health food industry and I totally understand, but this girl loves food too much to leave anything out. Not to mention I have learned that you don't have to cut foods out of your diet to be healthy you just need to moderate yourself. More on that on the health page. Some recipes are super healthy and some are indulgent, but the blog over all celebrates the joy of cooking and creating enjoyable food. Many times indulgent recipes can use substitutes to make them lighter so keep that in mind while you browse. The greater the variety the better. Guest posts and recipes are always welcome too!

I let my machine do all the work on th...

One of the things I keep in my cabinet at all times is shortening.  I use it to coat pans and to make pie crusts.  You could also deep fry in it, but I prefer coconut oil or regular vegetable oil for deep frying.  Coconut oil is the best deep frying oil since it does not turn over to trans fat at high temps as other oils do.  So if you like fried food use Coconut oil.  We fry once in awhile but with moderation.  So here is a very easy pie crust from scratch that you can make the next time you...
