Cookbook in the works....

I have been debating for years and have been told by many, that I need to write a cookbook.  I would love to! It would have nutrition tips and information resources as well.  I think 2013 will be the year.  I just have to find time to get all of my recipes out of my head and onto the computer.....Who is with me?

  2. In legalizing food irradiation, the FDA relied on laboratory research that did not meet modern scientific protocols, which federal law requires. I, IV

An afternoon at Farm Girl Produce (the milk lady)....

So we were able to go see our farmer Robin, who is the milk lady around here.  She brings us Fresh Raw milk, kefir, cream and other goodies to the farmers market every Saturday.  My kids and  I have been trying to get out there to see the farm, especially since they have new calf's.  So yesterday, we were able to and it was such a beautiful day.  90 acres of beautiful land and animals.
