Beef Basics- lets get back to it shall we? Over the years we've heard some pretty interesting questions that, to be honest, scare us a little! Sure, we know that grass fed is better, pasture raised this, and no antibiotics that. And all of that is vitally important, I wouldn't do what I do otherwise. But when it gets back to those beef basics, how to cook certain cuts, what they are called, and where they come from in the animal are almost more important th...

Cottage pie dates back to the 18th century, and comes from Ireland and old England. While Shepherds Pie is typically used interchangeably, a shepherd looks after sheep, and classically, shepherds pie is made with lamb, while cottage pie with beef! 

If you are one of those people that doesn't like when their food touches on their plate, perhaps you might like to skip this post. Cottage pie is so many yummy things in one spoonful, served best in a bowl with a...

Side dishes can make or break a meal. Personally, I'm more inclined to pick a meal when I'm out to eat based on the sides, and then the main protein.... of course, this is when I'm not eating NBB. At home we have a revolving crisper drawer of delicious, fresh vegetables. But it can be easy to get stuck in tractor wheel size ruts of nuking frozen peas, or boxed rice- and trust me, we do that, no judging, but in the same amount of time it takes for that rice...

The meatBALL! (duh...) Super Bowl Sunday. I'm still not sure why it's not a National Holiday, and why we have to work on Monday. But until that changes, there's always going to be hours of eating, awesome commercials, and bad referee calls. This post is all about balls- and not footballs. But glorious balls of meat, beef to be exact. New Boston Beef Balls. Check out a previous post about 3 things to do with ground beef for a traditional meat ball recipe- th...

Beef Stroganoff. Russians only smile when they eat this bowl of love (just kidding) Stroganoff dates back to the mid 19th century in Russia- who knew?! It's a dish that a lot of newly wed brides made back in the 50's and 60's, and still has come a long way since then, but the bones of the recipe are still the same. It's an inexpensive dish, using tougher cuts of beef, stewed and braised all afternoon in a thick gravy and finished with sour cream for even mo...

If you haven't seen the movie Wedding Crashers, then this title is just super awkward. But you still get the point, and that's alllll that matters! 

Meatloaf! Meatloaf is one of those meals people don’t usually eat unless their Mom made it. I wrote down a very simple and basic, but super delicious recipe to start, and then some fun variations for your more adventurous moments in the kitchen!

Today's high in temperature: 8 degrees. 8. Single. Digit. Chilly is a drastic understatement. When life gives you chilly, make it! 

To me, there is no better way to warm up than to have a pot of something on the stove, heat up the kitchen, and sit down to a mildly spicy bowl of love with corn bread straight from the oven. I also love chili because I can get it on the stove in less than 15 minutes, and only dirty 1 pot and a colander! 

Your shopping list...

How long did your pot hang out on the stove? I went back 15 hours later to a beautiful, rich, amber colored broth full of flavor and all the benefits of bones! You can certainly enjoy your broth as is, or make your favorite soup, or freeze it for later use. I made ramen. 

It is up in the air who is to credit for the creation of ramen, the Chinese or Japanese. Either way, making broth from bones is a practice 10's of generations old, mostly for financial nece...

8 Things Bone Broth Can Do for Your Body

1. Heal and seal your gut. A cup of bone broth a day works miracles for leaky gut syndrome, but it's also good for protecting non-leaky guts, according to Jill Grunewald, a holistic nutrition coach and founder of Healthful Elements. The gelatin in the bones typically used for making broth (such as knuckles, feet, and other joints) is said to help seal up holes in intestines. (People who have leaky gut syndrome have po...
