Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole
This is a great "use what ya got" recipe. I'm sure it's great as is but I changed it to use a few things in the fridge. I used 7 eggs (med size from a friend), 2 cups organic whole milk, 1/2 loaf of 2 day old rustic wheat artisan bread cubed, 1/2 lb diced ham, 4 beef jalapeno natural sausage, 1 1/2 cups vintage white cheddar, Himalayan Pink Salt, rainbow pepper, garlic powder, & freeze dried shallots. omitted the mustard powder. Browned sausage and ham in a 12in cast iron skillet, let cool slightly and mixed everything right into the skillet. Let sit on counter for 1/2 hour till the bread had absorbed the egg mixture. Baked 40 mins on 325*. It came out great! Be creative and waaste not, want not :)

My Best Clam Chowder
I been looking for a good clam chowder recipes well this is it! I did it change a few minor things I just can't seem to help myself. on the advice of other reviewers I cooked 3 slices of bacon in my stock pot, then took the bacon out to drains and crumble in later. when I added the clam juice and water I also added in some time and old bay seasoning (next time I will use bottled clam juice instead of water). I didn't want to use a separate pan so any microwave safe bowl I added the potter and the flower and cooked it together until thoroughly nick n about a lease then I added the half and half into the bowl using a whisk. then I dumped the mixture into the stock pot with the vegetables and water and juice. I cooked the whole thing on medium heat until nice and hot thick but not boiling. then I added back in the bacon and the clams. I used 2 cans of chopped clams and 1 can of baby clams. I didn't have any red wine vinegar but I will try it next time it was still amazing without it!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread
To make this slightly more healthy I used 1/4 cup butter 1/4 cup canola oil. I also used whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose and added 1/4 flax meal with a few tablespoons water. It turned out wonderfully!
