1/4 cup powdered buttermilk
1 1/2 tbsp onion powder
1/2 tbsp dried parsley
1/2 tbsp dried chives
1/2 tbsp dried dill
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
2 tsp kosher salt


1. Preheat oven to 375°.
2. Lightly coat the legs with olive oil and sprinkle with the rub. Raise the skin and put some of the rub next to the flesh.
3. Spray a baking dish or pan with cooking oil and add the chicken legs. Set a timer for 45 minutes.
4. After about 35 minutes, check the temperature of the legs and brush on additional olive oil to encourage browning. Raise the temperature of the oven to 400° or turn on the convection fan.
5. After 45 minutes, check to see if done. Remove from the oven and cover with foil for 10 minutes before serving.



FFF Chicken Breast 
Olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
12 ounces fettuccine
12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast (about 2) 
1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter
2 cups heavy cream
2 pinches freshly grated nutmeg
1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano


1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and salt generously. Add the pasta and cook according to package directions until al dente (tender but still slightly firm). Drain and toss with a splash of oil.
2. Slice the chicken into 1/4-inch-thick strips, and lay them on a plate or a sheet of waxed paper. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the butter. Raise the heat to medium-high and add the chicken in 1 layer.
4. Cook, until the underside has browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip the pieces, and cook until browned and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes more. Transfer the chicken to a medium bowl.
5. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the remaining 6 tablespoons butter. Scrape the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spoon to release any browned bits. When the butter has mostly melted, whisk in the cream and nutmeg and bring to a simmer, then cook for 2 minutes. Lower the heat to keep the sauce just warm.

Meat Loaf

Meat Loaf

For years, this recipe has been a staple in the Zeiter Family to bake big batches of Meat Loaf and feed a crowd of hungry eaters! With the "hidden veggies" it also became a prime way to sneak in the greens without little meat lovers noticing 😉 


2 lbs FFF grass-fed ground beef
2 large carrot finely chopped
1 large zucchini finely chopped
1 large onion finely chopped
3 large cloves garlic minced
2 eggs
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
3 T ketchup, 1 T worcestershire sauce
2 t salt, 1 t pepper, 1 T italian seasoning
Fresh chopped parsley for garnish


1 cup ketchup
1 T white vinegar
2 T brown sugar
1 t garlic and onion powder
1/2 t ground black pepper and salt
1 T tabasco 


**Pre-heat oven to 375˚F

1. Saute carrot, zucchini, onion, and garlic in a little bit of olive oil until soft, set aside to cool.
2. Mix together remaining ingredients (besides parsley) until well-combined, then mix in cooled veggies.
3. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and add meat, gently pressing down to shape evenly - bake meatloaf for 40 minutes.
4. In a small bowl, mix all of the ingredients together for the sauce. Spread the sauce over meatloaf then return to oven and bake additional 15-20 minutes. 
5. Rest meatloaf 10 minutes before slicing. Drizzle with baking juices from the pan.  


1. It's easiest to chop the carrot, onion, and zucchini in a food processor to get it as small as possible.
2. Feel free to make it as spicy or mild as desired with tabasco in glaze.
3. We love meatloaf best with buttered peas and carrots or some other kind of green vegetable.
4. Add a bit of pureéd onion to the mashed potatoes for extra flavor - we also love to use plain greek yogurt instead of sourcream.

4 pounds (~1.8 kg) pork shoulder picnic (cut into 4 – 8 pieces)
1 tablespoon (15ml) olive oil
BBQ sauce of choice


1. 2 tablespoons (25g) brown sugar
2. 2 teaspoons (5g) chili powder
3. 2 teaspoons (4g) black pepper
4. 1 teaspoon (2.4g) onion powder

9. ½ teaspoon (1g) fennel seed , ground
10. ¼ teaspoon (0.5g) cayenne pepper


1. Mix all the dry rub ingredients and rub it all over the pork shoulder picnic pieces. Then, put the pork shoulder picnic in the fridge for 30 minutes to overnight.

2. Heat up your pressure cooker (Instant Pot: press Sauté button). Make sure your pot is as hot as it can be when you place the pork shoulder meat into the pot (Instant Pot: wait until the indicator says HOT).

3. *Optional Step*: Add 1 tbsp (15 ml) olive oil into the pot. Ensure to coat the oil over the whole bottom of the pot. Add the pork shoulder pieces into the pot. Brown the pork shoulder on all sides. Remove and set aside.

4. Pour in half of the Pulled Pork BBQ Sauce and deglaze the bottom of the pot. Then, add in the remaining BBQ sauce mixture.

5. Place all the pork shoulder pieces into the pressure cooker. If you left the skin on, make sure the skin side is facing up. Close lid and pressure cook at High Pressure for 60 minutes (see notes). Turn off the heat and fully Natural Release (roughly 15 minutes).

6. Open the lid carefully. Take one piece of pork shoulder out and see if you can shred through the meat easily with two forks. If it is not fork-tender, cook for an additional 10 to 20 minutes at High Pressure, fully Natural Release.

7. Use some cool Pulled Pork Shredder Claws or two regular forks to shred the pork shoulder meat. Dress how you would like it and serve!


Here are the pressure cooking times depending on the size of your pork shoulder pieces from a 4 pounds pork shoulder:

If it's cut into 8 pieces: roughly 55 - 60 minutes pressure cooking time.
If it's cut into 4 pieces: roughly 60 - 70 minutes pressure cooking time.
If it's cut into 2 pieces: roughly 75 - 80 minutes pressure cooking time.


The pressure cooker pulled pork can be stored in the fridge for up to 3–5 days.
