Shopping: Bountiful Baskets

One of my favorite things in life is my budget. I love the challenge and ingenuity that comes with trying to live on a certain amount of money. But, this blog isn’t about money, it’s about food. Which brings me to Bountiful Baskets. Have you heard about it? If you live in Arizona, Nevada, Utah, or Idaho, you really need to check it out. Each Monday, I contribute a small amount of cash to a collective pool, and each Saturday, I show up and pick up my basket of produce. So if you are like me--you have a limited amount of money but want really fresh yummy produce (that is often locally grown), give this system a chance. I am a huge fan.

Thanksgiving: Stuffing

Thanksgiving is in three weeks. Are you prepared? Do you have plans? What are you making?

If you are in charge of the stuffing, don't forget about this perfect recipe.

And while we are here, what is your favorite, absolute must have Thanksgiving dish? Mine is sweet potato casserole. But more on that later.

I'm Back


It has been far too long. But for those of you in the know--you'll know we've been a bit under water lately. Underwater for good reasons, not bad. We moved across the country. And as the number of boxes diminishes and the number of recipes on my counter increases I feel a need to start documenting again.

Starting tomorrow, I'll post more, cook more, experiment more, read more, and in turn you'll read all about it. Do you see my new email address? Send any questions or suggestions you may have. And finally, please link my blog to your blog. In the months to come, we'll be expanding, growing and changing, and I promise you'll be glad to be a part of tortillas and oranges.
