Homemade pizza with Pizza Camp!

Homemade pizza with Pizza Camp!

Mr. President and I prefer staycations over vacations and homemade dinners over meals out. But, Philadelphia has such a wonderful food scene, so how can we make sure we’re not missing out? Buy the restaurant cookbooks, that’s how! This summer, we’ve been working our way through two cookbooks that were born right here at Philly’s […]

Growing and harvesting your own dried beans

Growing and harvesting your own dried beans

Every year at this time as I walk through my overgrown vegetable garden, I question my sanity. My spring self gets overzealous about planting time and I overdo it, screwing royally my summer self. My garden doesn’t look good, and I struggle to keep up with the harvest. Once I finally harvest, the next project of making sure […]

Best DIY summer moisturizer

Best DIY summer moisturizer

I have a love-hate relationship with DIY beauty products. After my extreme experiment of making nearly everything I put on my skin with lackluster results, I went back to using a mix of store bought, as-natural-as-possible products and luxurious DIY concoctions based on what works best for me. I first saw this recipe in the Mountain […]

Your garden, your story

Your garden, your story

When I go on vacation, I usually return home with fewer than a dozen photos. It’s not that I don’t like photos, it’s that in the moment, I’m too busy enjoying the experience to be bothered by snapping photos. If I’m standing barefoot in the wet, cold sand of Pfeiffer Beach in January and the […]

Olive oil: the real deal

Olive oil: the real deal

A great book can change your life or at least part of it. I recently read (and reviewed!) a book like that called Real Food, Fake Food by Larry Olmsed. It reminded me that great food can also be life-changing, especially when you know exactly what it is you’re eating and you are getting what you […]

Apple Dutch Baby

Apple Dutch Baby

Tonight, the temperature here is going down to 7 degrees. Seven. For us here in eastern Pennsylvania, that’s unusually cold even in the dead of winter. Everyone’s face gets all scrunched up when they’re outside because it hurts. I don’t mind winter or the cold so much at all, as long as I have my […]

Book Review: Real Food Fake Food

Book Review: Real Food Fake Food

I have often said my life would be easier if I wasn’t informed about food and if I didn’t care deeply about eating good, honest, sustainable and humanely raised food. There is nothing convenient about my quest for food. There is no one-stop shopping since I need to visit several places just to get everything I […]

Spiced Roasted Eggplant with Bulgur Salad

Spiced Roasted Eggplant with Bulgur Salad

As in years’ past, the leaves on my garden eggplants look like Swiss cheese this October. Once again they are the unfortunate victims of flea beetles I simply didn’t take the time to battle. There was even a big fat tomato hornworm I didn’t have the heart to kill. It was huge by the time I […]

DIY Natural Skincare: Winners and Losers

DIY Natural Skincare: Winners and Losers

If I could hold my head up high and proudly look you square in the eyes, you’d see that my skin is looking great. I’m slightly ashamed to tell you it’s not because of the plethora of DIY natural skincare concoctions I’ve been trying on my face. For more than a year starting with my […]
