Welcome to Bringing Home the Brakebush! Here you will find recipes and tips for making the most of the Concordia Theological Seminary (Fort Wayne, IN) co-op, which provides pantry staples and fresh meat, dairy, and produce to seminary families, free of charge.

I'm a seminary wife who loves cooking and trying out new recipes, especially ones that use mostly co-op ingredients.  If you have a co-op worthy recipe that you'd like to share, I'd love to hear from you!  I also enjoy couponing and finding deals that keep my grocery budget down (not that I don't splurge sometimes!).  If a recipe calls for ingredients that aren't commonly available at the co-op, I try to include stores and prices as a point of comparison when you shop.

This blog started out as a series of Facebook notes with recipes for my friends to use.  I've included them as the first several posts here, which is why they don't have any photos and look pretty boring.  Don't let that fool you, though--they still taste delicious!

So take a look around, try a recipe or five, and discover how to transform even a frozen bag of Brakebush chicken into a mouth-watering meal.
