Down on the farm
Down on the farm

Last week I knew I had a three day weekend coming up and I didn’t exactly know what to do with it, so I thought I’d offer my help to anyone who needed it.  Amazingly, the very first person I asked was willing to take me up on my offer and asked if I wanted to drive up to Bonifay to help out on the farm and build a chicken coop.  Can’t say I’ve ever...

Gluten-Free Spiced Pear Cookies
Gluten-Free Spiced Pear Cookies

Ah, Fall… gotta love this season.  Pears, apples, spices… all of them show up in full force to drown us in their comforting tastes and smells.  This weekend I was at the Farmer’s Market (as usual) and decided to pick up a few bags of some dried Asian pears (grown by a local farmer out here) mixed with roasted pecans.    Upon getting home and remembering...

Think outside the drum
Think outside the drum

As anyone who has turned on a TV in the past month knows, there is a massive plume of oil spewing into the Gulf of Mexico.  Recently I moved to the Gulf Coast and instantly took to eating locally and enjoying the fresh seafood, but that time is now over.  With the larger and larger fishing bans, many fishermen are choosing to do other things to get paid, resulting in many...

Stuffed Squash Blossoms
Stuffed Squash Blossoms

Last July I was introduced to the lovely thing that is a squash blossom by my CSA and since stuffing and frying them, I’ve been waiting all year to do it again.  The funny thing about this?  I posted a pic online when I made them and since then my uncle asks me for the recipe every time we see each other.  Now, usually we don’t see each other much, but since...

The Triple By-Pass: KFC’s new creation?
The Triple By-Pass: KFC’s new creation?

By now, almost everyone has heard about KFC’s sandwich, the Double Down, but what could possibly top it?  With KFC riding high on all this press, you know they’ll have to somehow one-up this creation… it’s simply good marketing sense.  Recently it was reported that they were extending the item’s time on the menu through the summer and had estimated...

Take Le Whif of this
Take Le Whif of this

I’ll admit it: I love candy.  I especially love candy from other countries or candy made with non-standard (in the US, anyway) ingredients.  While visiting my brother and sister this past weekend for her college graduation, Jess and I slipped away to the mall and checked out the candy store.  Among the many candies from around the world they had the most intriguing...

Yo, Gurt, make your own!
Yo, Gurt, make your own!

So, a few of you may have read my previous post about yogurt where I said that I would attempt to make my own next.  Well, that time has come!  The other day I bought a quart of milk from a local dairy for $3.00, and one “starter” yogurt for $1.34.  If all went well I’d have a whole quart of yogurt for less than $5.00.  Not too shabby, if I don’t...

I’m blue (da ba dee da ba die)
I’m blue (da ba dee da ba die)

First of all, I’m not turning into a Smurf or a Na’vi or anything.  Secondly, no, I have no idea why I’m turning blue.  Yesterday I was doing my usual exercise after work (walking fast uphill on a treadmill) when suddenly my finger felt funny.  Looking at it, I noticed it was kind of swollen, but I figured that maybe I hadn’t had enough water or something. ...
