We have decided to start a blog to share our recipes and to also keep them in a place we can easily access them. We hope you enjoy them and the little tid bits of our lives that we throw in. Most recipes will be based on primal principles although a few non-primal baked goods may slip in :)

Homemade Fruit By the Foot

Adam bought a dehydrator so we could start making jerky and veggie chips.  For our first use we made banana chips...need to work on this one and will post when we have a good technique down.

Kroger had strawberries 4 for $5 so we took up that deal and with some rhubarb from Mom and Dad Pitstick's garden we set out to make fruit leather.  We made them slightly too thin and dehydrated just a little too long.  But it should be pretty easy to fix for the next round.

All we did was puree the strawberries and rhubarb, added about a tablespoon of honey.  For a little energy boost we added 2 tablespoons of chia seeds.  We put plastic wrap on the dehydrator sheets and then spread the puree mixture on those (do not do it too thin as it will get thinner as it dehydrates).  We put it in the dehydrator for 8 hours but will probably do about 6-7 the next round.

Yummy Chicken!

So we just discovered foodgawker and it opened the door to even more primal recipes! We get tired of plain chicken either grilled or baked and wanted something different. I found this yummy recipe on foodgawker. Seriously a dish we will make often!
