Pumpkin Cranberry White Chocolate Cookies

For a few years now I’ve wanted to make a cookie like this, but haven’t ever done it. This year I decided there were no excuses. I borrowed this one from this blog and made a few changes. Ingredients: 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt […]

What Does It Cost to Farm?

It’s easy to see the dollar signs when it comes to buying food. It’s easy to think different options should all be the same – a head of lettuce is a head of lettuce, right? So let’s say I borrow $45,000 for a hydroponic aquaculture system – this doesn’t include fish, water, food, any chemicals […]

Steak Salad with Goat Cheese and Coconut Rum

I’m not a big rum drinker. It’s generally too sweet for my tastes. However, I do love to use it when I cook – as a deglazing agent. It sounds so formal to call it an “agent”! One of my standby suppers is beef salad. I don’t, as a rule, lack for beef around here, […]

Is Tradition Bad? Food Choices & The Past

So often we want to look back to ‘better days’. We think, or imagine, it was better back then. I often say we combine tradition with technology. We’re not opposed to technology but using it for the sake of using it doesn’t make sense. My mom would be turning 87 today. I think back, then, […]

It’s GMO! Or Is It?

It’s become a battlecry. It’s “evil”. It’s wrong even if it reduces chemicals and increases production. It’s a strand or two of DNA so small that it doesn’t alter the appearance of the plant. A corn plant is still a corn plant. More specifically, a field corn plant is still a field corn plant. There […]

No Child Left Hungry – Is It Possible?

We exist for food choices – heirloom/heritage, common sense food for those who want food choices and want to know how/where their food was raised and processed. I’ve faced criticism at times for not condemning those who farm differently, or for patting ourselves on the back for the things we “do right.” And if I […]
