There’s a post that I’m working on that will detail many recent changes in my personal life that have happened in the past few weeks. You might say that my eyes were opened. I’ll probably post it sometime tomorrow or Tuesday. In the meantime, here are some snapshots I took this weekend at the farmer’s market. Enjoy.
One of my food resolutions for 2013 is to minimize the amount of food waste that leaves my kitchen in the form of trash.

I don’t think that will ever happen as I […]
This post is a day late, but I figure that the wait will have been worth it. There’s no question that beets are one of my favorite vegetables, especially since it belongs in the category of ‘vegetables that don’t get enough respect’.
