Cajun Boiled Peanuts feautring Woodham Cattle Co.

I’ve lived in California and North Dakota, neither of which are the South. Apparently boiled peanuts are a thing in the South and intrigued me. So when I got a peanut grower for Thirty Days of Food, I figured I may as well give Cajun boiled peanuts a go. Boiled peanuts are a fall favorite of Woodham Cattle Co. from Alabama. I only hope this recipe can do them justice!   PEANUTS: WOODHAM CATTLE CO. Alabama When did you start farming? What brought…

Pumpkin Goat Cheese Raviolis featuring Kyle Wasson

Just recently I had the pleasure of attending the U.S. Durum Associates International Durum Forum. It was incredible to learn all about durum production and be able to hear how the production of durum differs from the hard red spring wheat we grow. I am excited to be featuring a durum grower for Thirty Days of Food. Kyle Wasson grows durum (among other crops) in Montana. For those of you who don’t know about durum, here’s a little background information. …

Salted Caramel and White Cheddar Popcorn featuring Pilot Knob Comforts

When I visited Chicago several weeks ago, I was gifted a bag of Garrett Popcorn. Inside the bag there was a mixture of cheddar popcorn and caramel corn. Let me tell you friends, it was magical. Fast forward to when the Bowman’s of Pilot Knob Comforts emailed me regarding being featured for popcorn… Yep, I decided to make my own Garrett style popcorn. But I upped the ante a little, I made white cheddar popcorn and mixed it with salted…

Raspberry Chipotle Black Bean Dip featuring Ashley Kennedy

This last summer, I attended the National Festival of Breads in Manhattan, Kansas. Everyone said I just had to make it to the So Long Saloon for their Raspberry Chipotle Black Bean Dip. It sounded interesting, so I made the trip and tried it. It was phenomenal. Unlike anything I’ve ever had before! I knew I had to re-create it. Ashley contacted me and the minute she said “black beans”, I almost squealed! You may know Ashley from her blog…

Appetizers Crop of the Month Farming Recipes

Poblano Corn Fritters

I picked up some poblanos a couple weeks ago and I’ve throwing around ideas on how to use them. I always find them in recipes whenever I don’t have them on hand. Finally have them on hand and bam, no ideas. Isn’t that how it always works?  If you’ve been following my Crop of the Month series, I’ve been cooking and writing through all four crops we grow here on the farm. Last month was all about soybeans. I’ve made…

Soybean and Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Crop of the Month series and back and this month it is all about soybeans!  We grow soybeans on our farm because they are a great stable crop for our area. Soybeans allow us to maintain good weed control as well as are a pretty tolerant crop. We need a crop that can be seeded into wheat residue that has the potential to be wet and soybeans allow us to seed in a wide range of planting dates. I will…

Guacamole

Growing up I was never really a fan of guacamole… It’s green and goopy. It looked scary. Or maybe I just never had homemade guacamole. Now that I’ve discovered the joy that is homemade guac, I literally could eat close to a whole bowl in one sitting. I heart guac. Homemade guac.  Hence the reason it always makes me cringe when I come across store bought guac. (Sorry if that is you). This guacamole recipe literally takes 15 minutes, tops.…

Buffalo Wild Wings Copycat Wings

I am not sure there is someone who loves wings more than my husband. During my life, wings have been hit or miss for me. I enjoy the buffalo flavor, I don’t enjoy the hard to eat mess. But I guess that’s half the enjoyment of wings, they are messy. Anyway, it was my husband that introduced me to Buffalo Wild Wings and needless to say, the ole B dubs has me a changed woman.  Ever since I first tried…
