My Five Favorite Food Blogs

Without boring you too much, I’ll say that I have complicated feelings about food. I read way too much on the internet which leads me to believe I should be eating vegan for health, sustainability and moral reasons. But in reality I am a pescatarian (I eat fish occasionally – but not without some guilt). I […] Read more…

The CSA Cookbook Review

I’ve expressed my adoration for Linda Ly’s Garden Betty Blog before, so of course I was thrilled to be given the chance to review her first book, The CSA Cookbook.

Style Stories is a project that celebrates and promotes sustainable fashion; items that are locally made, eco-friendly, vintage, fair trade, cruelty-free, or organic. Anyone who […] Read more…

Healthy Changes for 2015

Happy New Year! Are you sick of hearing about resolutions yet? No? Oh Good 😉 I have a few fun posts planned but they weren’t quite ready yet. So instead I thought I would talk about a few little changes that have made it easier to eat more vegetables and support local farmers. I know it’s only the 14th […] Read more…

Making Rose Hip Jam

I had just finished telling a friend that I’d heard you can make jam from the rose hips of the beach rose plant, Rosa rugosa when a fateful email newsletter arrived from the Goldenrod Foundation. HECK YES I DO! It was yet another unseasonably warm and gorgeous fall day, and the drive past the forests and […] Read more…
