C-o-o-k-i-n-g.. I love to cook! My Mom used to put me on a chair at age 4 to help, and then she allowed me to cook by myself. This was before the days of most meals being all canned or frozen. No nuking food into poisoned rubber, either. I use ALL organic and/or gmo-free ingredients. Always.

I cook mostly from scratch and/or use my home-canned foods. Casseroles, soups and desserts are some of my favorites. I also water-bath and pressure can. I will add links to original recipes if available. Most recipes are after I change them to suit my tastes. Like all cooking, just about anything can be changed. Enjoy!

French Dip Sandwiches & Au Jus Sauce

I love French Dips! We can no longer eat out at most restaurants. That is the downside of eating “real” food that is organic and gmo-free. Another reason is that they tend to use raw-to-me beef...
