Beef Broth

By Jan Buhrman

There is no comparison to homemade stock from that found on the shelves in the grocery store. It is one of the most economically rich foods to include in your weekly plan. Find a farmer (possibly at a farmer’s market) or ask your butcher if they can get you grass-fed beef bones. Broths or...

Greek Kakavia

By Jan Buhrman
