Hello, readers! Long time no recipe, and for that, I apologize. This summer came at me like a tsunami, and I’ve been trying to keep afloat. I’ve been learning how to beekeep, living in a house without air conditioning, dealing with family matters, and, most relevantly, learning how to forage from the abundance of plants

It’s been a bit of a hectic month, so I’d like to start of by apologizing for the unexpected hiatus. I’ve been working at a local community garden, and it’s been in the 90s+ here all month. On top of that, the home AC is busted, so when I’m already hot and exhausted from work

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

My garden this year has a jalapeno plant that’s been an absolute champion when it comes to producing peppers. It’s provided for countless loaves of bread, bowls of guac, marinades, and omelettes. Despite having so many uses, I still found myself struggling to keep up with the output, so I decided it was time to

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

Last week, we learned how to make garlic dill pickles. This week, we’re trying something a little different. I love pickles, and I always have, but I’ve never liked sweet pickles. Unfortunately, I realized that I’d run out of dill while I was in the middle of mixing brine for the cucumbers I’d already sliced

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

My kitchen has a whole cupboard dedicated to tea and vessels from which to drink it. Sometimes, I get a box of something thinking it’s going to be the best thing ever, but then I make a cup and never want to see it ever again. Mostly, that happens with spice teas. You’d think that
