Start Here-Best in Class Breakfast Sandwich

I had a fabulous chat with Jason Marcks at WBEZ radio in Chicago.  He voiced the problems that most people have with New Years Resolutions.  No one really knows where to start. His personal issue is that he knows he is supposed to eat breakfast but with his schedule and ...

Only chickens go to summer camp

Tuesday 28 August 2012 . (0)

We picked up our daughter from her first summer as a camp counselor this week (let me tell you, 10 weeks is a long time for a mom to not know what her kid is eating!) We stopped at a lovely gourmet shop and I picked up a quickie picnic without asking what she would. Continue Reading…

I gotta tell ya, it’s a lot to ask of a mom juggling busy kids, all those meals, that house, those birthday parties and maybe a job and a dog. Oy. And then I come along and ask that you also consider the environment when you make your food purchasing choices. What’s inside the package. Continue Reading…

Monday 19 September 2011 . (0)

Tucking your garden in for the winter is a bittersweet autumn project that’s full of conflicting feelings. On the one hand, saying goodbye to summer and all her bounty can be depressing, especially when faced with the prospect of an ice-cold winter, mounds of slush, snow and short, dark days. But it’s also exciting to. Continue Reading…

Last week I wrote about seed saving as a way of getting over the end-of-season blues. Another great way is to get planting again! Yes it’s true. You can extend your growing season beyond the summer even if you live in a cold climate. There are many hardy vegetables that love the cooler temperatures and. Continue Reading…

S.O.S – Save Our Summer by Saving Seeds

Tuesday 6 September 2011 . (1)

It’s here but I’m in denial. September. Despite the abundant harvest, lovely cooler nights and the promising show of blazing autumn trees I’m kicking and screaming my way out of summer. I refuse to admit that soon I will have to trade my sandals and white shorts for sweaters and blue jeans then cram myself. Continue Reading…

Convenience Foods Redefined:Preserved Harvest

Monday 8 August 2011 . (2)

One of the great innovations of the 20th century was convenience food. Who could forget freeze-dried coffee, TV dinners, powdered mashed potatoes, Jiffy Pop and Space Food Sticks? Canned and frozen foods got busy moms on the go a head start on dinner and they were especially great for moms like mine who were stranded. Continue Reading…
