I bumped into a vintage ad for margarine this morning, which led me on a hunt to find more. I was struck by how the processed food industry’s main marketing message seems to be that their foods are natural, have wonderful flavor, and are healthy. *cough cough* Some things don’t change, do they? I picked five of my “favorites” to share with you.

Our next free webinar is on Friday, March 9, 2012 at 1pm Pacific. I’ve asked a special and knowledgeable guest — my friend Vickilynn Haycraft of Real Food Living — to share her expertise on the topic of grain mills. Vickilynn has been using and reviewing products and tools of the homemaking vocation for over 25 years. She really knows her stuff! Also, the webinar will kick-off two drawings for free grain mills! This post contains the details.
Don’t assume you don’t like parsnips. That is, unless you’ve already had them like this — pan-fried, browned and caramelized in butter. Super good and super easy. Beth, with whom we shared a garden last summer, gave me this recipe and a taste-test of her prized leftovers. They were fantastic, so I couldn’t wait to try it myself. And the whole family loved these! [by Wardee Harmon]
A group of plain people, the Vallenses, live and survive in what was once Central Texas. “The Last Pilgrims” is a good, fun, clean, thought-provoking end-times adventure story. You begin to care for and understand the people. But what I love most is that this story makes survival living and eating seem real to me. If you’re going to buy the book, please wait until February 24, 2012 to participate in the book bomb!
Hi, my name is Harmon. I am a blogger, teacher, homemaker, homeschooling mom, traditional foods cook — and Ron Paul supporter. In this post and video, I share why my family supports Ron Paul, along with Life, Prosperity, and Liberty.
Is this Amish butter or not? Come along with me and we’ll find out. [by Wardee Harmon]
A departure from the usual, today I’d like to share… mostly pictures. I’ve shared a lot of these on Facebook, but I thought it would be fun to do a catch up of sorts for people who don’t see me over there. Enjoy!
Although my family is not grain-free, I often make these cookies. They’re chewy and delicious, but I especially like that there’s no waiting on soaking or souring. The cookie base is blanched almond flour, which gives a fabulously moist, chewy texture. We’ve taken these to church too many times to count, and we always get compliments on how yummy they are.
The last words of a good book are often the most inspiring. Take, for example, the last words of “Plan It, Don’t Panic: Everything You Need to Successfully Create and Use a Meal Plan” — “May your planning be productive, your stress relieved, and your meals delicious!” If only… but wait, it is possible! This eBook will help you do all that, plus save money and serve healthier meals. And all for less than $5. We’re giving away one copy!
