Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup and Fluffy Cornbread

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup and Fluffy Cornbread from The DIY Pantry | Canned and packaged foods tend to be chock-full of preservatives, unhealthy fats, and other additives -- not to mention, they are usually expensive.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins (Gluten-Free)

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins | In the world of muffins, quick breads, pancakes, and waffles, I vary our whole-grain flours and use many that are gluten-free.

Fresh Bread on a Wood Stove

Fresh Bread on a Woodstove | My family and I greatly enjoy our winters in Idaho. It gets snowy and cold, but the snow stays around and the cold is a crisp cold -- not a bone-chilling cold with heavy humidity, like we were used to when we lived on the East Coast. We look forward to the snowshoe hikes, the warmth and coziness of the fire, and the benefits of cooking on a wood stove all winter long. I love using my wood stove for our meals, breads, and baked goods. We are very frugal here in the wilderness, so when I can utilize a free resource instead of one I have to pay for, it only seems right. | GNOWFGLINS.com

Bacon Buttermilk Skillet Cornbread

cornbread-square

With our traditional off-grid lifestyle, it’s only fitting that our Christmas and Thanksgiving holidays follow suit. Our families are 2,500 miles away, so we’ve created new traditions of our own while still holding tight to old traditions. I would love to share some of those traditions with you (including a recipe for bacon buttermilk skillet cornbread), and I look forward to hearing your traditions — wilderness or otherwise.
