Welcome to Simple Meals Friday!

There is nothing like having a collection of simple meals to throw together in a slow cooker first thing in the morning or in a skillet as a last minute dinner. What are your favorite slow cooker, rice cooker, skillet meals and salads?
We want to know your easy to make meals. It’s great learn and be inspired by others. When you link up on any of our sites the links will show up on all the blogs.

Meet Your Hosts

Please Read and Follow these Simple Meals Friday Rules

  • Keep the foods “nourishing”, such as homemade chicken stocks, whole grains, vegetables, fruits, healthy fats (lard, coconut oil, butter, olive oil, tallow), unrefined sugars, flours and salts and meats.
  • Please don’t include recipes using processed oils such as soy and canola oil, msg laden bouillon and other highly processed foods. If I notice a recipe using these ingredients it will be deleted. Try to incorporate traditional methods of preparing foods like, sprouting, soaking, sourdough and lacto-fermentation.
  • Link back to this blog hop, it is a common linking courtesy. It helps to build a stronger blogging community. That way we can all learn and share with each other.

We enjoyed reading all your submissions. The hosts will pick a favorite post to feature on next week’s Simple Meals Friday. If you want to be featured please be sure to link back to this blog hop. Our favorites will be featured on facebook and pintrest!

  1. […] Instructions   Cook on low for 5 hours or until brown, stirring occasionally. Make sure you keep the cover on the crockpot slightly cracked. The more frequently you stir, the finer the consistency. If you prefer clumpier granola, stir less.   Add raisins, dried fruits, chocolate chips…whatever you desire. This is delicious as a hot or cold cereal, as a snack, a topping for yogurt, or made into granola bars.   To make into bars: combine 2 cups granola w/2 beaten eggs, put in a lightly greased cookie sheet, bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Cut into bars and cool.   This keeps for several weeks in the refrigerator, and I bet it would freeze well too, but ours never lasts long enough for me to find out!    Linked with October Fest Carnival of Super Foods: Healthy Fats Edition, Ultimate Recipe Swap, Mostly Homemade Mondays, Natural Living Mondays, Better Mom Mondays, Titus 2 Tuesday, Teach Me Tuesdays, Raising Homemakers.
