Homemade Chicken Penicillin Soup

Get cooking!  This immune-boosting Homemade Chicken Pencillin Soup is the best natural “medicine” for staying strong during flu season because it’s loaded with the antioxidant vitamins A and C.  We have been told that a bowl of this soup looks like we went down to the garden, picked a lot of vegetables and threw them [...]

Sweet Potato Pancakes

The Seedlings (ages 3-5) had a lot to celebrate on Saturday, November 19 with their families at the barn.  Our youngest farmers accomplished great things in the organic garden by harvesting veggies and putting it to rest for the winter; and had fun making HealthBarn USA naturally nutritious recipes.  Most importantly, they tried a variety [...]

Tomato Dumpling Soup

It's tomato season and there is nothing better than Jersey Fresh tomatoes.  The challenge at the barn is that we have an abundance of tomatoes in the garden, but because of the crazy rain -- these red beauties don't "look" the best, but still taste delish! If you are in the same boat, we have [...]

Garden Fresh Pasta

The tomatoes are ripening on the vines as we type.  What tastes better than fresh tomatoes, herbs and garlic?  Certainly not, plain pasta and butter!  We know time is precious, so we created this ONE pot dish (you can cook either together in one pot, including the pasta) that moms love to make and kids [...]

Creamy Broccoli Soup

We love soup anytime of year!  We typically avoid “creamy soups” because they are usually high in saturated fat – the fat that’s not good for your heart, but NOT this soup.  This broccoli soup is creamy and delicious and in just one cup it is a good source of vitamins A and C, and [...]

Pizza Potato Skins

We are all about planting potatoes at the barn this week.  So that means potatoes are part of the recipe -- and this one is a favorite.  Our parents are psyched because this recipe is super nutritious and we are eating potatoes rather than French fries without a battle!  Try it, you'll like it...
