A few things I’d like to share: We raise chickens an are currently getting nearly 2 dozen eggs per day, so we incorporate them into the menu plan quite often. We are still harvesting fresh jalapenos (& canning them!), eggplant, figs, watermelon and sweet potatoes from our garden, as well as a few sporadic bell peppers.

Cost Less (not sure if they have an online presence)
Hi there, there is a “Print Friendly” button at the top of each/every recipe. (Rather than printing them, you can print them to “PDF” files and save them in a folder on your computer for later perusal, if you’d like.
not a big fan of pdf files… take up too much room and can’t share online. but thanks. I usually just save them on a Word doc and then to a folder on my computer, so I’m not printing them out.
We’re thrilled that you want to save our recipes for later, but We do ask that you share a link rather than copying and pasting our recipes & menus online if you happen to share them with others.
🙂 We work hard to create everything we share here on the site and love to see new faces join!
