The Easiest (Healthiest) Fried Okra (THM-FP, S)

This year, we grew a delicious variety of heirloom okra that is called Longhorn Okra. It is perfectly tender even when it grows long…which if you know anything about picking “normal” okra, it will be tough as a cob if it gets too long. We had oodles of okra this year. I pickled a bunch,Continue reading “The Easiest (Healthiest) Fried Okra (THM-FP, S)”

Berry Cobbler (THM-S, Sugar Free and Gluten Free)

I had the privilege to pick about a gallon of beautiful, vibrant raspberries and blackberries from our farm. I am constantly amazed at how lovely the berries are!
