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.

Fall is here and I can finally indulge in my favorite flavor: Pumpkin Spice! Of course I can always eat and drink my way to the bottom of a pumpkin spice seasoning jar, but since it's fall, I can...

Having been writing and cooking for the Foodista website for many years, I have created and collected a huge list of favorites. Of all the things, the top of the list is quick and easy chicken...

We start our homeschool year tomorrow, and that means mealtime has to be far more organized. I love creating recipes and diddling around in the kitchen, but when my wasting time means my kids are...

Sometimes the best part of the meal is a simple dessert. When trying to get your little chefs to eat all their vegetables, coaxing that last bite into them is much easier with a nice dessert waiting...

Despite these last few days of Indian Summer, it's certainly fall as far as the apple trees are concerned. Our apple trees are loaded this year, there is an ebb and flow to the amount of apples...

To be honest, condiments are the unsung heroes of any dish. Who out there can relate to an overcooked hamburger being saved by creamy mayonnaise or chicken coming to life with a marinade of...

A quick trip to the farmer's market and I am once again loaded down with bags of fresh, heirloom tomatoes. In fact, in a wonderful coincidence, we pulled in to the parking lot and the man...

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...

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...
