Yummy Bakeover

Recently I began subscribing to MaryJane's Farm magazine. It's a really wonderful combination of information and values about eating organic, seasonal foods, old fashioned thrift, respect for the environment, feminism and glam. Mary Jane Butters, who runs her own farm and is now a publishing phenomenon, has branded herself as a Farm Girl type of Martha Stewart. She sells everything she writes about, from her organic Budget Mix (an organic, healthier alternative to Bisquick) to the cutest damn travel trailer I've ever seen (for about $15,000).

Today I decided to try to make one of her much-touted Bakeovers. The video shows how it's done, but it's very simple and I have to say it -- Delicious! I used potatoes, onions, garlic, tiny cubes of ham and Gruyere cheese, topped with the whole wheat budget mix crust. Take a peek at the leftovers!

I'm envisioning all kinds of possibilities now that I've done it. My family totally loved it! It gratified those few small molecules of Farm Girl I've got drifting around inside me somewhere.

Thanks for the link to Mary Jane Farm, I had never heard of that magazine, so many of my favorites have gone out of business recently. I also have a garden blog http://thetinygarden.blogspot.com it looks like you enjoy gardening too.

Thanks for your comments! I have to say I'm loving the MaryJane's Farm mag, I got a new issue yesterday with a bunch of corn recipes I'm drooling over. :)
