Thanks for hosting, Kathy! This week I’ve shared a poem I wrote about a women who is shunned by her community and accused of being a witch because of an herbal remedy she used.

I sincerely appreciate you hosting Kathy, thank you ! :) It’s nice to see the party is back on this week – I’ve missed it!

Most store-bought tortillas are laden with hydrogenated oils and some even have high fructose corn syrup. I shared a recipe this week to make your own and it can be customized to white or wheat and there’s even an option to soak the grains beforehand! I also shared an article on the various types of butter and what they mean – grass-fed vs. organic vs. cultured, etc. – and how to find the best butter for your needs.

Thanks Tiffany :-) Good tortillas are very hard to find indeed … I need a little practice I think to get good at making them myself.

Hi Kathy!
Thanks for the invite!
I hope it’s okay to share this recipe. It does contain protein powder- does that make it not qualify? I know that there are good and bad protein powders out there.. um I’m sorry if it doesn’t. Should I change the recipe?

Thanks for asking me Kayla, I surely appreciate it :-) … but yes you’re right they don’t fit. Protein powder is always a bad idea (Ditch That Protein Powder). Not sure what you could do other than protein powder for this kind of thing. Seems like some kind of meat jerky would be the most likely replacement? I’ll take it down … I’d invite you to submit something else if you’d like … you have lots of yummy looking dishes and it doesn’t need to be a new recipe.

I posted my tutorial for my “farmhouse cheddar cheese.” It is SO good. We love it!

I made this Caesar salad dressing today and it is deeeeelicious! It’s my first time making a salad dressing that actually turned out tasting right! I made it for a salad with chicken and some romano cheese and I ate the salad with an orange and some butter carrots (which as always are so good and why didn’t anyone tell me before now??).

Not sure how granny would feel about the anchovies in the dressing, but once it was blended up I didn’t mind them! And I use a good brand of olive oil, too.

Sounds pretty nutrient dense to me :-)
