STOLLEN!!! .. MMMMM….. 🙂  Does anyone have a good homemade recipe from Germany they could share with me… Id love to make it this year …

Beef hearts

So I am trying something new again.. I found them browsing the beef isle.. all beef hearts…

I googled it and OMG they have so many health benefits… Click here for info ..,

My personal recipe…

I defrosted them…

Put them in a pie pan with

Panko Italian breadcrumbs
Olive oil
Black pepper ( ground )

Then I baked at 350 f ..until crisp…mmmm sooo good!!!

Hand piecing..

So o decided to start hand piecing.. I have always wanted to learn how to hand quilt … just like our pioneers used to… clearly I need to practice but love learning new things….

Veal liver

Found some veal liver in the grocery store.. being from a European family and background.. anything cooked ..boiled or frayed was usually in maggi… the magic seasoning…..

liver and onions with a side of mashed potatoes with a little butter was always on our dinner table… so I thought hey I've never had this style … we always bought calves liver or chicken liver… let's try it!! Here we go…

What did I do… simple…

So I didn't have any onions so added or sprinkled some onion powder on top…and now lightly pan frying … just sprayed with Pam spray… this is .50 lb …

My opinion.. if you want to add a little salt and pepper… you can but I eat a low sodium diet so didn't need it..

Flavor compared to calves and chicken liver .. earthy… yes would have been better with real onions I just did not have any in the house.. so improvised.. a woman's life ( onion powder) …

All in all yum yum yum another great recipe!!

Beef Marrow Bone Broth

The benefits of this broth are infinite, but the biggest natural benefits of adding bone broth into your primal diet are:

1. Joint Health
2. Better Digestion
3. Rich in Minerals
4. Improved Immune System
5. Protects against the common cold and flu

However, bone broth isn’t just your regular stock made after a few hours of simmering a chicken carcass on the stove (although, that’s pretty tasty too). Bone broth’s real benefits come from simmering the bones for up to 72 hours, which allows the marrow to be cooked down and the minerals to be released.

The bone broth recipe is thick and gelatinous, filled with minerals and healing properties that many cultures have believed in for thousands of years.

  • 4 lbs beef bones
  • 12 cups water
  • 2 T apple cider vinegar
  • 1 medium onion, roughly diced
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped carrots
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped leeks
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 3-5 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 t black peppercorns

  • Preheat oven to 450 °F and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place the bones on the baking sheet and roast for 40 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  • Once the bones are cooked place bones in a large stockpot and cover with water. Add the vinegar and allow to sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
  • Roughly chop the vegetables and add to the stockpot. Bring to a rolling boil and then lower to a simmer.
  • For the first 2-3 hours, skim any foamy layer that develops on the top and discard.
  • For beef bone broth, simmer for 48 hours, for chicken bone broth, simmer for 24 hours, for fish broth, simmer for 8 hours.
  • Allow to cool slightly and strain. Transfer the broth to an airtight container and refrigerate for 4-6 hours or overnight. This will allow the fat to rise to the top and solidify.
  • Scrape the fat off the top with a spoon. This will leave you with a gelatinous bone broth when cold.
  • Store in an airtight mason jar or freeze until ready to use. When ready to use, slowly warm the broth over a low heat to bring it back to a liquid consistency.
