My best friend and I have the perfect date when we can get away: pasta and a glass of wine at Whole Foods and then next stop, Book People. I love to cook too and it does seem like a bit of a dying art. My co-worker looked at me as though she was amazed when I shared the recipe for a simple citrus salad dressing. There is great joy when my daughter calls from college to ask how to make something that she enjoyed while home. She's an adventurous cook! Thanks for sharing the recipe - it's always nice to try something new. Please share more recipes as you're inspired!


The larger my garden gets, the more I want to cook and experiment. I've also started foraging and studying herbalism. I think you would love Rebecca Altman's blog Cauldrons & Crockpots http://www.cauldronsandcrockpots.com/2014/04/wildflowers/#respond The real challenge now is trying to accomodate my son's new diet, which is gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, egg free, and legume free. I read a lot of cooking blogs for ideas. I don't own Heidi Swanson's book, Super Natural Cooking Every Day, but I have been reading her blog for a couple of years. http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/mung-yoga-bowl-recipe.html I'm looking forward to hearing more of your cooking stories.


Thanks for the blog link, Holly. Your son has presented you with quite the challenge. I had a guest visit us a few weeks ago. I made a gluten free meal which wasn't too difficult but I was surprised at how many products have wheat. Hoisin sauce, for example. It's as prevalent as corn.

I haven't been to Heidi Swanson's blog but will visit it soon. Thanks!


Cat, at 50 I still call my mom to ask, "How do you make green chili stew? How do you make tamale filling?"

When you want a taste of home, Google cannot compete with mom.

    In the summer of 2015 my husband and I acquired a fine German touring machine (aka VW Jetta Wagon TDI) so that we could escape the confines of Austin from time to time. We never know if we're going to head out to Lockhart for barbecue, Fredricksburg for peaches or Marble Falls for a soapbox derby. The only sure thing is that my trusty Canon goes along for the ride
