Garden Trout

I had a smoked trout salad a couple weeks ago which reminded me that I really like trout. I rarely eat meat, but when I do it is something I crave and works well with my body which would be trout, turkey or duck. In the company of others, I may deviate from those.

No, the […]

Squash Blossoms

The squash blossoms I picked up from the farmer’s market Thursday were on my mind when I went out for Italian last night. I didn’t want to batter and fry them and I didn’t want to make a summer soup.
I decided the flat, square homemade noodles that accompanied the abundance of everything else would be […]

By Land or By Sea, Green Superfoods

Over the last couple months I wrote about a variety of superfoods. Nuts, seeds, berries, and now green stuff that is nutrient-dense for their tiny size. We’ve got nutritious green stuff that we find in the garden and not as familiar green stuff from the water’s depths.
For the landlovers, we’ve got your grasses-alfalfa, barley, and […]

Vegetables Don’t Taste Good!

Excuse Me! During my slow and transitioning month of May, I turned on daytime tv. I came across an infomercial with Montel Williams. Did you know he promotes a juicer/blender? And every person who hates vegetables came to the taping? I was appalled.
I am the most adamantly against the in-your-face “do this or […]

I didn’t cook for my friends last week since they were being thankful with and fed by family and friends for the holiday.

Authentic Holiday Gatherings

Not since the mid-90s have I spent Christmas with friends. Not to dismiss quality time with family over the other years, but my favorite holiday memories have been with my friends.
