As we head into spring (or wishfully think about it), it’s time to consider what we can add to our kitchen from the Earth around where we live. Not only does growing your own produce save you money, but it doesn’t require a lot of space. Container gardening works well for many plants, from herbs

Cooking healthy doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. 2020 has been a year of improvising like a madman (or madwoman), and this recipe is no exception. I used “salmon” fillets I got from the frozen section of the grocery store sometime… probably a couple of months ago, and I was one short. The broccoli

The title is a bit of a troublesome mouthful, but the dish itself is one you’re not going to be able to get enough of. Summer is the start of squash season, and what better way to make an easy, hearty, flavorful soup than to use the local fresh produce at the farmer’s market? I

The last time I made pickles was when I was a kid. I remember very little of it other than it being a fun experiment. Now that more of us have been spending more time at home (and AE has already covered sourdough territory), there’s no better time than the present to experiment with canning

I’ve been on a mission to find a good balance between my carb-heavy diet and Hubby’s protein-heavy needs. The middle ground appears to be fish and poultry, which I can eat lots of without the negative… effects… that I get when I eat large portions of red meat. Fortunately, seafood is something I grew up

Our new home has an amazing mint garden out front and a raspberry bramble out back. As anyone who’s ever met me knows all too well, I love tea. Mint tea is the quintessential winter beverage for me, and raspberry leaf tea is like black tea’s fruity cousin. With two natural resources literally right outside

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I have a lot of currants. Possibly too many. I’ve been at a loss for what to do with them, but I decided to get adventurous and figure out how to best bake them while fresh (I’ve got recipes for dried ones, like my Rosewater Currant Cakes but

It’s summertime again, and that means my friend’s mom has currant bushes that are overflowing with fruit. This year, she taught me how to juice them using a pressure cooker, but then I was stuck with far more currant juice than I knew what to do with. I still had jelly from last year, as
