Chicken Ortega Casserole

One of my favorite meals is any meal I grew up eating. That feeling of nostalgia as you take that first bite, it takes you back to when you were a kid. I always spent summers at my Grandma Nonny’s house. I can remember cooking and baking with her, playing cards in bed, sitting on the porch and looking out on the lake below. Some of my best childhood memories took place with my Nonny and some of my favorite…

Tyson Foods Launches New Animal Welfare Initiative

** While this post has been sponsored on behalf of Tyson Foods, all opinions expressed are that solely of Prairie Californian. ** Growing up the daughter of a butcher, I grew up with an intimate knowledge of where the meat we eat comes from. It wasn’t until I started school and began talking to other kids about what their parents did that I realized, not everybody has the opportunity to be so close to food production as I did growing…

Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Pork tenderloins have become one of my new favorite things to cook, especially for a weeknight meal. They are quick to cook and still pack a ton of flavor. I have always enjoyed stuffing pork tenderloins, but haven’t spent a ton of time just cooking them to slice and enjoy.  I decided to cook these pork tenderloins on our Green Mountain pellet grill, which by the way, I absolutely adore. The Butcher Man, my dad, gifted us the grill as…

Maternity Fashion Favorites

So for anyone who has been pregnant or is currently pregnant, it is no surprise to you that maternity fashion that is cute AND affordable can be hard to find. I find most of the time when things are super cute, they also come at a designer price tag. I have spent a considerable amount of time looking for outfits and things that I can mix and match during my pregnancy. If you were to walk into my closet, you…

Recipes Salads Sides

Potluck Pasta Salad

Last week, I got the phone call.. Someone in our community had passed away and it was our turn to show love in food and service.  Serving at events like funerals in the basement of our local church always gives me a renewed sense of faith in our small towns. I don’t know about where you live, but in small town America, we show love in food. There are many salads and bars that are brought to nourish the hearts of…

Pregnancy Update: Hello Third Trimester

Time just seems like it is FLYING by… It won’t be very long before our little man will be here!! That leaves me both equal parts excited and scared.

Pulled Pork Nachos with Chipotle Slaw and Pineapple Salsa

When we were in Hawaii, we enjoyed some amazing nachos that were plum full of pulled pork, great homemade bbq sauce, a pineapple pico style salsa, and some coleslaw to top it off. We split a plate amongst friends with some beers and then ended up having to order another plate because they were just THAT good. I have been wanting to recreate them ever since we got back, but I just haven’t.  Last week I had some pulled pork…

Farmer Approved Farming Recipes

Farmer Approved Tractor Meals

Doesn’t matter what season it is whether it be spring planting or fall harvest, it always feels like it goes from zero to hundred in the blink of an eye. Every year I tell myself I am going to be more prepared and have things on hand to help feed an ever-busy, can barely stop to eat farmer and agronomist. Some years I do and some years I don’t. The years I don’t I am left unprepared and unsure of what…

Celebrating Thirty in Savannah

So I finally joined the 30 club last week. And in order to celebrate that milestone in my life, since I couldn’t have a blow out party because ahem knocked up, I decided I wanted to travel. For anyone who knows the hubby and I, you know we enjoy traveling. We’ve traveled extensively west and throughout the Midwest. I have traveled some to the East coast. But much of the South has been left uncharted for me. So I decided…
