Welcome to my Page of recipes, most of which are handed down to me from family and friends! I think I was born a foodie! Every since I was knee high to a grasshopper I remember food being a big part of my life! I was fortunate to have both maternal and paternal grandparents that loved food!
My maternal grandparents raised me and taught me the value of growing our food, harvesting what was needed never taking more than we needed and to use the whole of the food when possible! My Paternal grandmother was always in the restaurant industry so I got to go into professional kitchens and eat some pretty fancy foods for a simple little country bumpkin!
I now enjoy the best of both worlds! I love my country comfort foods but love to experience dishes from everywhere! So you will get a good blend here some country comfort and some dishes I have discovered, with a small back drop into my childhood favorites and memories! Bon Appetit!

Welcome to my page Kartia’s Travels! I hope everyone is doing good through this Pandemic. One of the things I am finding to help keep my PTSD under control is staying busy! Idle time is my enemy.

Rustic Root Veggies and Roast combines all of my favorites! Parsnips, Turnips, Red Potatoes, Onion, Beets, Celery and Carrots!
This is what you do:
Rustic cut all veggies Parsnips, Turnips, Red Potatoes, Onion, Beets, Celery and Carrots caramelize the carrots in pan, season your roast I used a chuck! I use a blend similar to McCormick steack dust! I also pounded out the roast to tenderize it a bit! Add in all your veg then some beef stock. cook in oven covered for 3-4 hours low and slow I had mine at 250 degrees F. let set once done to rest then slice and serve over bed of veggies! I love a dollop of horseradish! Oh so yummy!
So I had some medical issues and after a surgery and mass amounts of antibiotics I am now gluten and dairy intolerant, or extremely sensitive. Being a foodie this makes going out and trying new dishes a painful experience. I have been working on all of my handed down recipes from my family and friends and will be adding them here to share with all of you! Some I am working on are Gluten free versions.
So photo'd is the handwritten version of this cake! But I am writing out the Gluten free version!

This is such a delightful and easy pie to make. Your choice of fruit black raspberry Blackberry or blueberries!
I can remember going out and picking fruit with my grandma and grandpa, I think more went in my belly than ever went in my pail!

We always seemed to pick enough to freeze some make jelly, wine, cobbler and this yummy delight!

I am certain I picked more than ever made it into the basket! my tiny fingers, hands and face always was covered in stains from eating so many! Oh the sweetness of those berries! And the memories!

This is a simple semi homemade dish that I hope you enjoy as much as I do!
Remember the season is for giving and sharing the love of Our God for he sent his only Son for us to be saved! The birth of our Savior!

Your choice of CBD or THC is by the plant you use!
The main psychoactive component of cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is one of the 483 known compounds in the plant, including at least 65 other cannabinoids, including cannabidiol (CBD).
Male Hemp plant is CBD.
Female plant is THC.
In order to get the best health benefit from this butter you must first bloom the plant material! What I am saying is you need to be sure the plant matter is heated to release the benefit of the oils in the plant! I toast mine in a skillet on medium heat for 30 minutes but you can put it on a cookie sheet and put into the oven for 40 minutes at 400Degrees.
You will need:
4 sticks of butter
1 ounce of Marijuana
once the plant material is toasted and bloomed add butter to the pan. lower the heat to low and allow to simmer on low for 30 minutes taking care to not burn the butter!
Strain if desire. pour into a mold let set up!
This is a spice mix I made up and use to sell, thinkin about doing it again! So many uses for this mix! Shrimp, chicken Steaks, fajitas! Big ole grouper steak on the grill! Good in pasta dishes! Salad dressings adding it to a basic ranch dressing on a fresh crisp summer salad! Om me oh my.... could go on and on about this blend of flavors! You can use a himilayan sea salt or no salt at all! Oh soooooo GooooooD!
2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
1 1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp, red pepper flakes
stir together all ingredients until evenly blended! Be sure to use the freshest of ingredients!
