Baked Homemade Tater Tots

It’s been a few years since I first started reducing the number of packaged and processed food items in my house, and overall my family has been enthusiastic and very supportive.  For the most part.  There have been a few items that have been harder to skip or replace than I would have suspected.

Einkorn Flour Banana Bread

I know bread is supposed to be “bad” for us, that it’s either partially or fully responsible for most of today’s dietary ills, depending upon which article or book you are reading.  But I don’t buy it.  I’m still of the opinion that bread itself is not the culprit, but rather modern bread made with […]
