Easy, Slow-Cooked Oxtail Stew

Add to Flipboard Magazine. We recently purchased a quarter of a grass-fed cow. It was a really great, affordable (well, per pound at least) way to stock our freezer with grass-fed beef, but we ended up with a lot of odd bits that I’ve never cooked before! I actually didn’t know what the oxtails were. […]

We eat a lot of beans at Casa de Baker. They’re inexpensive, delicious and when prepared properly, extremely nourishing. Beans need to be soaked in an acid and cooked slowly to break down antinutrients that would inhibit proper digestion. In addition to this, I cook them in homemade bone broth, which enhances their nutritional value […]

Darling Baby’s Lunch 10-14-13

We had baby school today. I’m not going to lie, I ate most of the wrap. Darling Baby is teething and just had no interest, although he finally took a little bit of it and ate it near the end of lunch time. He devoured the fruit and seems to have totally forgotten how much […]

Have I ever told you that Darling Baby’s most favorite style of food is Mexican? Italian is a close second. What can I say, he takes after me! In fact I have to confess, I had to make more rolled tacos for this lunch because I ate the ones in the picture. Oops. Oh well, […]
