Chicken Soup

Chicken soup is so yummy and so easy! Before the GAPS diet I didn't make soup very often, but I always loved when someone else made it :) Now, I am making it a couple of times a week. I am amazed at how much flavor the soup has with no added bouillon! Dieter says, "I don't yike onions" so I have to blend them so he doesn't no there in there.

2-3 Carrots
2-3 Celery stalks
Leftover chicken from stock making
8 cups Chicken stock, homemade
1 Onion
Sea salt
Black pepper, freshly ground
Any other fresh vegetables you desire, such as broccoli, cauliflower, green peas, kale, cabbage, etc.

-Peel carrots, rinse celery and slice both into small pieces.
-Slice your onion
-Into a large stockpot, add the carrots, celery, onion, leftover chicken
and 8 cups of chicken stock. Add in any other vegetables that you would like.
-Simmer over medium heat until the vegetables are soft. Season soup with sea
salt and pepper to taste.

Basic Chicken Stock

It is so easy to make chicken stock and it is so flavorful. You can freeze it in ice cube trays or mason jars (leave 2-3 inches head space.) Use it in soups this winter instead of store boughten broth full of additives.

Large pot
1 whole Chicken
Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Pepper

-Place thawed chicken in pot
-Fill up pot with water (you would think I would measure the amount of water, but I haven't.)
-Add salt and pepper (I stop adding salt when I think I have added to much. It usually turns out good)
-Bring to a boil, then simmer for 2-3.5 hours
-You will know when it's done when chicken falls easily off of the bones
-Remove chicken and bones and strain your stock
-It will keep in the fridge for 7 days or freezes well

5 months old

"Mantha" is 5 months old. Dieter says "Mantha" and it's kind of stuck. She loves to sit up on her own. She grabs at anything she can. She is very ticklish and her laugh melts my heart. She loves Dieter (sometimes I don't know why.) This past week she hasn't wanted to be set down (hopefully that passes.) She is such a calm, happy little girl. She is a little blessing to our home.

Check out this Deal!!

I just bought 4 of them! I think they're adorable leggings! Happy Friday!

Quinoa Burgers


{Image found at}

Quinoa is a good source of manganese, magnesium, iron, copper and phosphorus. It comes from South America and has a nutty flavor. I have found it pretty reasonably priced at Costco. To make this gluten free, use 2 cups rice flour instead of whole wheat flour and oats.

2 cups Quinoa, cooked (You can also use brown rice)
2 cups of your favorite kind of Beans, cooked
2 small Zucchini, grated
1 Onion, grated
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup Rolled Oats
1/4 Olive oil
Favorite spices (I use my ranch dressing mix)

-Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
-Mixture should be sticky. If it's dry add water. Add flour if mixture is runny.
-Try your mixture. If it tastes good then the finished result will be good. Add more seasonings if necessary.
-Shape into patties and fry on a skillet coated with light layer of olive oil.
-Serve on a bun with your favorite vegetables and condiments.

Rice Bowl

{Image found at Cornbread and Caviar}

You could really add anything to this! Top with your favorite dressing (I use my homemade ranch.)

4 cups Brown Rice, cooked
2 cups Lettuce
1 Avocado
2 cups Black beans
Fresh Salsa
Garlic Powder (optional)
White or Cayenne Pepper (optional)
Soaked sunflower seeds
1 cup Cilantro

-Fill individual bowls with 3/4 cup rice.
-Top with lettuce, avocado, beans, salsa, sunflower seeds, cilantro
-Sprinkle on seasonings
-Add dressing (or use salsa as dressing)

Another Good one!

Always Soft Sugar Cookies

This is the only recipe I use for sugar cookies. They always turn out so delicious. My trick is to take them out of the oven right before their down so the edges don't get crunchy. I add a cream cheese frosting to them. So Yummy! They're not Dieter approved. Maybe someday I will come up with a sugar honey cookie he can have...


1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup butter
3 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt

-Cream butter and sugar together. Then add vanilla, egg, and sour cream. Continue to mix until smooth.
-Add soda, salt, and half of the flour. Stir into above mixture and then slowly stir in remaining flour.
-Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness.
-Place on buttered cookie sheet (I use a stone) and bake for 8-10 minutes at 375° (My first couple of batches take around 12 minutes on the stone).

Cream Cheese Frosting

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, melted
4 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

-Cream the softened cream cheese: blend with butter.
-Add powdered sugar and vanilla and beat well.

Honey Lemon Curd

{Recipe found in Internal Bliss Cookbook}

This is so rich! One small spoonful is enough for me.

4 Tbsp Ghee at room temperature
1/2 cup Honey
5 Egg Yolks
1 whole Egg
2/3 cup fresh Lemon Juice
1 tsp Lemon Zest

-Cream the ghee and honey together. Beat in egg yolks one at a time. Mix in the whole egg. Mix in lemon juice. Mix in zest.
-Pour mixture into a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan. Cook over low to medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture coats the back of a spoon.
- Pour into a bowl. Cover and place in the refrigerator for several hours until well chilled. This will keep for several days.


So a couple of months ago I had never heard of Ghee. Now I use it almost daily. Dieter can't have dairy products, but he can have Ghee. It is clarified butter used for cooking.

1 lb unsalted organic butter (At the moment I am buying salted butter. I don't like the ingredients in the unsalted butter).

-Put the butter in a small glass baking dish (It works best for me to use a couple of wide mouth pint jars). Heat the butter in the oven at 225° or a lower temperature as your oven will allow.
-Continue until the butter fully separates and a clear golden liquid is on top. The solids will fall the bottom. This may take about an hour or slightly longer depending on oven temperature.
-Remove from heat while the liquid is a clear gold color.
-Spoon out the golden liquid (ghee). If you used salted butter, remove the salt sitting on top with a spoon or fork. Pour ghee into a glass storage container. Ghee will become solid when refrigerated, but you don't need to refrigerate it.
-Ghee will keep for many months.

Lacto-Fermented Salsa

I found a recipe for Lacto-Fermented Salsa. You might be thinking, "What is that?" Lacto-fermented salsa will keep for weeks and even up to 6 months in the fridge. It has many health benefits; it is loaded with enzymes and probiotics (who doesn't need more of that?).

I found my recipe on Nourishing Days. I have a lot tomatoes and peppers so I tried some. I admit, I was a little skeptical keeping it on my counter to ferment. My first batch is finished and it is so good! Kimball asked me to make more so it will last all winter! I have four more quarts sitting on my counter as I type now.

Lacto-Fermented Salsa (makes 2 quarts of salsa)

1 large onion
3 small bell peppers, cored and cut into large chunks
6 large garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 cup packed cilantro leaves
2.5 pounds roma tomatoes, cut into quarters
juice of 1 lemon
3 tablespoons sea salt
1/4-1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder
1/2 cup whey
1/4-1/2 cup water

-Combine onion, bell peppers, garlic, and cilantro in food processor (I don't have a food processor so I chopped all of my ingredients.) Pulse 3-5 times. Add 1/3 of the tomatoes and pulse 2-3 times. Repeat with another one third of tomatoes, and finally the last of the tomatoes.
-Pour contents of food processor into large bowl. Add the lemon juice, sea salt, cayenne powder, and whey. Stir well and allow to sit a few minutes while you prep your containers.
-Wash two quart jars. Do the same for the food funnel and jar lids. Ladle salsa into jars, leaving 2-3 inches of head space. Add water to submerge the salsa.
-Close lid tightly and leave a room temperature for a few days, until bubbly and fermented. During this process the solid vegetables may separate from the liquid. Simply stir with a wooden or plastic spoon until redisbursed and submerged under the liquid. Transfer to cold storage. Should keep for months.

That is my breakfast. Yum!!

Cantaloupe Popsicles

Dieter has been asking for popsicles for a couple of weeks (popsicle season is about over). I usually make them out of our apple or grape juice that we press or steam. We have so many cantaloupe in our garden I decided to make it with them. I blended a cantaloupe and added a little bit of honey. If I had any lemons or limes I would have squeezed a little in. They taste delicious and are so creamy!

Why didn't I know this?????

Well, I recently read a book that I want to share.

So, you are probably wondering why I read this book when I just had a baby. I DON'T want to get pregnant anytime soon and this book taught me a lot about when to make a baby. I am amazed at what I didn't know about the female body. This book will explain to you how you can know the exact day you are ovulating by being aware of your own body. There are no test needed just daily awareness of your body. Pretty simple! You ovulate on day 14 right? (that is what I thought) Well, only a small number of women do and you can ovulate on any number of days, who knew? ( I don't know how I have two children. I was pretty ignorant on this subject).

And another thing I learned was that boy sperm swim faster but die sooner, and girls are slower but live longer. If you get the timing right, you can try for a boy or girl (Heavenly Father still has the ultimate decision) This book is full of great information! Anyway, I thought I would share. I first got the book at the library, but purchased it because it is one that I will refer to often. Hopefully that wasn't to uncomfortable :)


Kimball: I am at the liquor store. What kind of vodka do you want?
Shay: Uh, regular!
Kimball: There is no "regular". The wall is full of vodka; potato, wheat, all kinds of grains.
Shay: Uh, potato? I don't know!

That was mine and Kimball's conversation Saturday when I sent him to the state liquor store (Don't worry family. We have not started drinking). You see, I found a recipe to make my own vanilla extract. I had know idea real extract had alcohol in it (not your imitation stuff. Check your labels). Anyway, Kimball bought me wheat and potato vodka and I am using the wheat vodka now (I liked the bottle better). Three months from now it will be ready...

Vanilla Extract

6 Vanilla Beans (They smell soooo good!)
750 mL Vodka

-Split vanilla beans in half lengthwise.
-Pour out few ounces of vodka from the bottle to make room for the vanilla beans.
-Place split vanilla beans in the bottle with vodka and secure lid.
-Store in cool, dark place, shake occasionally, for two or more months.
-When vanilla extract is ready, it will have a deep caramel color and smell delicious.

Vodka picture is some random picture from the internet

Broccoli Salad

So I don't have picture of this salad and I found some random picture of broccoli off of the internet. I love broccoli! Kimball doesn't share my interest but when I make this salad, he will eat it. The secret is the coconut milk. I don't have any measurements . Just add and taste as you go...

Broccoli Salad:

Broccoli cut into small pieces. (For picky eaters, the smaller the better)
Apples cut into small pieces
Almonds (However you want them, slivered, whole, halves...)
Sunflower seeds
Shredded carrots
Grapes (I don't always add these)
1/2-1 can Thai Kitchen coconut milk (sweeten it a little with raw honey)

Combine ingredients and mix in coconut milk.

I love this time of year! Peaches and Nectarines are two of my favorite fruits. We have planted a little orchard but the trees are not producing much yet. I went to a local fruit stand and bought Nectarines. Kimball bought me a dehydrator last year for Christmas and I am so grateful for it this time of year!! I am currently dehydrating nectarines. This is my first time doing nectarines and I hope they turn out.

I have an Excalibur Dehydrator. I know it is a lot of money but I think it's worth the investment!

Oh Dieter, My Dieter

It's a good thing your sister is patient with you...


Tomato Sandwiches

Thinking about tomato sandwiches is making me hungry! I hardly buy tomatoes through out the year so I really look forward to them in my garden. I had never had this until I married my husband and now it's one of my favorites!

If you have a toaster oven it's easy:
Put cheese on bread and place in oven.
When cheese is melted, pull out and top with tomatoes, salt/pepper.

If using the stove:
Turn stove onto low-med heat
Butter bread and place face down on pan
Let bread lightly brown then flip over
Top with cheese and put the lid on so cheese will melt
Add tomatoes and salt and pepper


I take turns making dinner with Kimball's mom and sister, so when we make dinner we make it for 2 other families. Tuesday is my day to make dinner and I made enchiladas. They are simple and so delicious. I try to cook with whole foods and when I buy something processed I want to be able to know what all the ingredients are.

1 or 2 cans La Victoria Enchilada Sauce (32 oz. cans)
12-16 Tortillas ( I buy Costco's uncooked tortillas)
2 cups Beans (I like black beans. I soak them the night before. You could use canned)
1 cup Corn, fresh or frozen
2 cups cooked Rice ( I like Basmati)

Cheese, optional
Sour Cream, optional ( I like Daisy brand)

Preheat oven to 350
Pour enough enchilada sauce to cover bottom of 9x13 pan.
Cook Tortillas (if their uncooked).
Cook your beans and rice.
Mix beans, corn, rice, and 1/2 of the Enchilada Sauce. Reserve the other 1/2 to pour over the top.
Fill tortillas with mixture. Roll and place fold side down in the pan.
Cover with remainder of enchilada sauce.
Cover with cheese if you desire.
Bake for 30 minutes.


Ranch Dressing

Hi Friends! I have been so busy canning/freezing/dehydrating fruits and tomatoes. I love this season but it is nice when were done. Here is a Ranch Dressing recipe. It is so good and easy! I mix all the dry ingredients in a mason jar and store it in my cupboard.

Dry Mix:
1/4 cup dry minced parsley flakes
1/4 cup dry minced onion
1 Tbsp dry dillweed
2 Tbsp onion salt
2 Tbsp garlic salt
2 Tbsp onion powder
2 Tbps garlic salt
1 Tbps salt

Mix 1 tsp to 1 Tbsp of dry mix
1 cup sour cream (I like Daisy brand)
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup milk ( cow or sesame. To make sesame milk blend sesame seeds with water until it turns "milky")

Business in the front, party in the back...

Samantha has been sport-in a mullet! We finally cut off her tail (after my brother laughed and laughed at her. It was the final straw). I bet she feels much better now :)

Freezing Peaches

I froze a bushel of peaches. I will use them through out the year, most likely for smoothies. I found it was faster if I filled up a quart mason jar then dumped the jar in the quart baggie. I did save some peaches to make fruit leather. Fruit leather is one of my favorite treats!

Allergies a blessing?

I recently read the children's book Pollyanna. In the book she plays a "glad game" where she looks for something to be thankful for in every situation. Her game spreads through out the town and every one is happier because of it. Well, I thought of Dieter's allergies. I noticed his allergies when he was 5 months old (eczema and vomiting). His allergies continued to get worse and worse and it seemed anything he came in contact with his skin broke out (rubber, latex, plastic, citrus, the list goes on...). He is now 28 months old and can't have soy, corn, dairy, gluten, refined sugars, tree nuts. Nothing processed or packaged as they contain soy/and or corn. I have thought about the paths we have taken and the trials we have had. I have realized God gives us trials to make us stronger. He wants us to learn something along the way. But the amazing thing is, through it all He never leaves our side. He is our guide, our companion. My family still has a long journey ahead but I do feel so blessed to be where I am today.

Here the link to the book if your interested:


Dieter can't have store bought ketchup because of the corn syrup, so I made my own. I was surprised how good it was! After having it, I will have a hard time using "regular" ketchup. I multiplied my recipe by 24 because I wanted to bottle it.


2 lbs Tomatoes, roughly chopped
1/2 cup White Vinegar
1 Onion, chopped
1 Clove of Garlic, crushed
1/4 cup Honey
4 whole Cloves
1 Bay Leaf
1 Cinnamon Stick
1/4 tsp Celery Seeds
1/4 Red Pepper Flakes
1/4 tsp whole Allspice
1 Anaheim Chile, chopped (optional)
1 1/2 tsp Salt

- In a small saucepan, combine vinegar, cloves, bay leaf, cinnamon, celery seeds, red pepper, and allspice. Simmer on low heat for 30 minutes.
- In a large skillet or wok, combine all remaining ingredients except honey. Cook on medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until onions and chilies are very soft, about 40 minutes.
- Strain the vinegar mixture through a fine-mesh strainer and add the infused vinegar to the tomatoes and stir.
- Puree the tomato sauce in a blender until smooth. Strain the sauce through a fine mesh strainer and return sauce to the skillet.
- Continue heating until the sauce is at a desired thickness, about 2 hours.
- When near completion, add the honey and stir until fully incorporated.
- Taste and adjust salt, honey, and vinegar as desired.

I need a new camera to take better pictures :)

Recipe found in the Internal Bliss cookbook

Dehydrated Almonds

Almonds are one of Dieter's favorite snacks (They're the only nut he can have). They are easier to digest if you have soaked them 12-24 hours before. I found a recipe in my Excalibur book for Honeyed Nuts. Dieter loves them! He has about eaten them all!

1 cup Almonds (You could do any nut. Soak them 12 -24 hours before.)
1/2 tsp Coconut oil
1 tsp Honey
Dash Sea Salt
Pinch of Cinnamon

Mix honey, coconut, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl.
Mix in nuts (Taste mixture. Add more honey/cinnamon if needed)
Dehydrate at 145 until crisp

And I found this picture on my mom's computer over the weekend. It made me smile! It was taken before we were married, so about 6 years ago. Kimball looks so young!

Delicious Pancakes

{Image found at Serious Seats}

I grew up eating Bisquick. I still love it, but I don't use it very often (except when I'm pregnant, I crave "yellow" waffles). This is a really delicious pancake recipe. It is a Fanny Farmer recipe (She published a cookbook in 1896 and introduced the concept of using standardized measuring spoons and cups.)

1 cup milk
1 egg
2 tbsp melted butter
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder

This is how Dieter gets pancakes

1 cup almond milk
1 egg
2 Tbsp melted coconut oil
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp honey
1 cup rice flour
2 tsp baking soda

Bottling Peaches with Honey

Ok, so I don't have a recipe. I pealed and sliced about 8 quarts of peaches and put them in a big bowl. Then I added around 3 cups of honey (taste your mixture and add more if needed) and I stirred everything together and let sit. Then I filled up my quart jars and made sure that the peach juice filled up the jars as well. The last jars I had a hard time getting enough juice. It think if I had added a little more honey I would have had more juice. I processed them for 25 minutes. I am trying more today and hopefully they turn out as well...

"You look like a nap"

That is what Kimball said to me when he came home yesterday. I just laughed because I had just woke up from a nap. If I can get my kids to nap at the same time I usually nap with them. His comment made me think of when your sleeping and the phone rings, and you try to sound like you haven't been sleeping. We've all done it...

This is a really cute video about love

Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) is the diet my family is on. The book is natural treatments for Autism, ADHD, ADD, Dyslexia, and Schizophrenia. While Dieter doesn't have those conditions, he does have eczema and allergies. This book talks about healing the gut and strengthening the immune system. I honestly think you can heal most anything if your gut is healed and working properly.
Kimball and I don't have any allergies like Dieter, but growing up I had a chronic runny nose. I didn't discover until after I was married that cutting certain foods out of my diet would clear up my runny nose (oh, and my chronic headache). Kimball has digestive issues (I'm sure he'll love for the world to know). Anyway, put our weaknesses together and we get Dieter! Cute, but lots of problems. I believe this diet will heal our whole family and I am looking forward to whole foods and home cooking!!
