Last year we grew several different kinds of squash. But our fav out of all of them was the buttercup squash. My Mom found out an amazing may to cook them, they are so good!!!!

First start by cutting  your squash in half. Then gut it,  in other words scoop the seeds out of the center. Place on a baking sheet ( foil lined)  then  put  the following into the hole: 2tbl. butter,  3tbl. brown sugar,  sprinkle of cinnamon  and  a drizzle of honey!!! Bake at 357* until they are tender, poke with fork to tell. Then scrape your squash and juice and place in a bowl, give it a good stir then serve!!

You can really bake this at any temperature, Mom puts it in to cook slow at a low temperature for Sunday dinner, it will also bake just as well at a higher temperature if you are baking several things in the oven at one time…which we often do!








Then here is your finished product!!







Hope you all are enjoying this nice weather¬†I can’t believe¬† its Feburary can you ?

Well last night Ineeded somthing quick and easy  to make for supper so I  made  baked hamburgers  and home made french fries every body loves this around here!! Here is the recipe for ya!!! 

 Take 2 pounds of  hamburger and make it into hamburger patties and set aside.

Mix  1c. water  1/2c. ketchup, 2T. mustard, 2T. vinegar, 1/2c. brown sugar, 3/4t. salt

Mix together above ingredients and pour over hamburger patties and bake at 350* for 45 to one hour.

Now Iwill tell you how I make my french fries.  First I start by cutting up 4 to 5 big baking potatoes,  I just cut them into long thin strips and then I fry them in coconut oil. I prefer to use coconut oil than crisco, crisco tends to make them  more greasy than the coconut oil plus it is better for you!!  We love dipping our french fries in  honeymustard   so here is what I do. I start by using  1c. of mayonaise, 1/3c. of  coarse ground mustard and about  1/3c. honey. Mix and adjust with more mustard and /or honey to taste. We store this in a plastic squeeze bottle in the fridge.

Well I hope yall have enjoyed another recipe!!!!

With the mercury rising in the upper 90’s it is just to hot to turn on the oven to make dinner. So what are you going to fix for the family? Here is an idea that I fix year round that is quick and easy and a big hit at our house. Here is what I used in this skillet, you can put your own twist on it.

Take a large skillet and add a few spoonfulls of organic coconut oil, the oil gives everything a sweet flavor.

1 pkg. of our organic chicken breast, deboned and skinned, cut into bite size pieces.

Then I added 2 chopped onions and gave it a good sprinkle of garlic powder

I stirred this all up to coat well with the coconut oil and put on the lid and let it cook for 10 to 15 minutes. Then it looks like this:

Then I added thinly sliced potatoes, you can add as many as you desire. The potatoes can make it a much larger meal by adding lots of them.

After adding the potatoes to the skillet I gave all of it a generous sprinkling of Real Salt and pepper, you can add any seasoning you would like. Put the lid back on and let it cook until the potatoes soften a bit, maybe 10 minutes. It will then look like this:

 Then I sent one of the kids out to get a golden zucchini out of the garden and I washed it and thinly sliced it.

I then stirred the chicken and potatoes and then put the sliced zucchini on top and put the lid back on for 5 to 10 minutes to steam the zucchini. I then removed the lid and gave it all a good stir and it is ready to eat!!

Keep in mind that this is a very easy dish to change around with what you have on hand. I have added corn and sliced peppers instead of zucchini. I slice and freeze zucchini to use in this skillet in the winter. I also use thinly sliced steak, or any other meat you have on hand. It could even be already cooked beef or chicken that is left over. Chopped fresh tomatoes would be good as well, or some fresh spinach. Have fun and be creative. Everybody here ate it up tonight! 

Lords best to you,
