In general, all is well. There are a huge abundance of beautiful, tasty plants in our garden. Click on the photo above to see the set. As for me, I wound up with some tasty mesclun for a salad Christmas eve. I wish…

I wanted to believe that the shining black well held the knowledge of the Universe—the knowledge shamen and monks…

Russian Rye, Anyone?

Bread machine! I finally got one. Do any of you have great heirloom recipes to try?

Well, the bread machine is rocking and rolling! I'm not a bread expert, so this is a fun way to start. Prep time is about 10 minutes for a loaf of delicious bread. So, it's easy to put the ingredients in the machine, press the button and wait a few hours. Voila! It's done!…

Jamaican Jerk Tofu

Jerk tofu

 

 

Yesterday, I was bummed that I didn't have some ingredients to make Thai sweet chili tofu to go with some delicious brussel sprouts and black rice. Then, it occurred to me that it's been a long time since I had any Jamaican style food.…

Gravity Light and Crowdsourcing
