Cajun Okra Rice

Recently we started helping at a farm share, we enjoy bringing home fresh, organic veggies! The first basket we received had many things in it, including okra, peppers, onions, celery leaves, and tomatoes.

We had never cooked with okra before, and so we were not sure what to do with it. We found several recipes on how to cook it, but we didn’t know what to pair it with. Adrian stayed home one morning when the rest of us went out and he surprised us with this mash-up of recipes he had found online. It is not spicy, but you can add more Cajun seasoning if you like the heat.

Pickles, Large Batch

We prefer the smaller, hand size pickles for these. Whole cucumbers do not get as soggy as cut and a lot can be stuffed into the jars.

Macadamia Nut Cookies

The white chocolate chips make these a super sweet cookie, so we reduced the sugar by over a half cup. According to our taste testers, these are the the perfect sweetness.

Mango Lassi Popsicles

An excellent treat invented by Megan. You will need to make a batch of custard, so use your favorite recipe or use the one that Megan used.

Pickles (Great Grandma Reble’s Recipe)

This is a small batch of pickles that you can make as your cucumbers become ripe. Grandma did not hot water bath them, but it is highly recommended that you do

Chocolate Sausage

Rolled into a sausage shape and then cut, this is a simple and very customizable treat.

Butter Chicken for Instant Pot

A friend brought this over for dinner. It was so good, I asked for the recipe 🙂 This is a mild recipe, so adjust the seasonings if you prefer spicier.

Chocolate Covered Banana Popsicle

This was a wonderful way to use up some older bananas. It is a tad bit harder than chocolate covered bananas, but just as enjoyable.
