Hello Everyone and Thank You!

I wanted to say hello and thank you to everyone who has followed my blog here. It has been a VERY long time since I posted here at the homestead. For good reason. We are no longer homesteading on the farm and all that we had is now gone. This was not a decision that…

Spätzle and Beef Goulash Recipe

What is a Spatzle and Goulash Recipe? Absolute mouthwatering rapture is what it is. I admit until a couple of years ago Goulash to me was noodles (elbow noodles to be precise), ground beef, onion, garlic, seasonings and tomato Juice. It was very soupy, and that is how I was raised on it. To be…
