Cooking and writing have been my constant companions ever since I was a small child.

My earliest memories are of my grandparent's garden and watching my grandfather clean fish for our meals. Every bite of food was wrapped in love, and I carry that with me to this day.

My writing is all over the place. For frugal and home cooking- mom stuff, visit The Farming Wife. I blog over at Eartheats.com, about wildcrafting and growing food on our family farm, and Herb Gardens about everything herbal.

Farmer's markets are the unsung heroes of good eating. I have worked them and shopped them for years, and all over the country. What I have found, is that some of the ideas for vendors vary, but...

This kitchen appliance is not used to make an overcooked roast smothered in cream of mushroom soup. Slow cookers have gotten an upgrade, and home cooks have taken notice. Some of the traditional...

Cooler nights mean that grilling is so much more flavorful. No more fighting mosquitoes and sweating as I flip burgers while the family plays in the pool. My grill works hard, and in the late summer...

We can't deny it, summer is coming to an end and the kids need portable food. Back-to-school is a huge adjustment for everyone involved and healthy fuel helps your little chefs get through the...

Late summer means one thing; the sweet corn is finally ready. Oh sure, you have probably seen it offered at your local grocery store or big box stores since spring, but I have a secret. Corn from...

Zucchini seems to be the unwanted visitor of the home gardener. It always strikes me as funny when people make jokes about having too much of it, or leaving extra bags of zucchini on the neighbor...

Having a gluten free member of the family can be challenging for the home cook. Many recipes include wheat, both hidden and obvious-especially if you are a cooking from scratch. With kids, that can...

Chocolate is a magical ingredient. It can become the main feature in a savory dish, or a much beloved sweet dessert. For me, it's all about dessert. As I have gotten older, I have also become...

Warm days and lots of get togethers mean summertime is upon us. The summer potluck is a quintessential rite of passage for anyone who enjoys the break from school and dreaded cold weather. Now that...

August is the month of plenty. It seems as if everything is growing and producing more than I can keep up with. So, my recipes reflect the seasonal foods and our dinner table is full of delicious...

Working with a food budget can be quite a challenge. Every cook knows that eating healthy is the most important thing we can do for our families, while being able to afford that diet can be a little...

Juicy peaches pair so well with the herbaceous rosemary and creamy Brie that we had to share this lovely summer recipe from My Bottomless Boyfriend. The crispy, light puff pastry makes the...

The grill definitely has a season at our place. We brave the elements in the winter (or until the snow covers the grill completely) but nothing like when warmer weather hits and I can actually sue...

Summer parties are much less of a hassle to put together than during the winter months. It's time for easy conversation, warm breezes, and plenty of good, seasonal food. That's why I love...

The wonderful thing about the garden season is that you have such a variety of foods that need little done to them to taste wonderful. Try harvesting a few of your favorite veggies, and breaking out...

What's light and creamy, full of flavor and has a crispy crust? It's summer pie eating time. From Sunday suppers to community picnics, everyone loves the pie table. Now, you can make some of...

Cool and creamy, icebox cakes are the perfect ending for any summer meal. Since they are no-bake, it's also great for the cook who doesn't want to heat up the kitchen. Icebox cakes are simply...

When the heat rises, who wants to heat up the kitchen for even a minute? Instead of suffering, break out the grill and cook every bit of your meal outdoors! You can get suprisingly tasty results...

Remember those days as a child, when you played in the sprinkler until you were exhausted and then eating cool, fruity popsicles in the shade while calculating your next freestyle move. We have found...

Summertime is all about enjoying friends and family in a relaxed way. Let's not forget all the eating and parties we finally have time to attend. With all the hot days and time spent outside, it...
