The Recipes

Orzo Pasta Salad
An Austin Homestead is a blog focused on all the elements of living sustainably, featuring tips and stories to help us human-animals to be good stewards of the soil and fellow Earth inhabitants. It is also a place for me to publish the recipes i have written and adapted. I've compiled this page of links for greater convenience when browsing my recipes.  Keep in mind my recipes don't always include specific amounts or strict cooking times. Consider all my recipes as guides to work from and experiment to suit your own tastes. Enjoy, and as always i'd love to hear your comments/results!

Grow your own, shop locally, cook seasonally.                Eat joyfully!
