There is an abundance of information on the Interwebs on why raising your own chickens is such a wonderful adventure (and raising chickens really is an adventure).

I have the same birthday cake every year: carrot cake. I cannot even remember a time that I did not have carrot cake, though I remember (vaguely) of a Strawberry Shortcake birthday cake like this one from my early childhood: I actually had the original cake form up until I last moved 7 years ago, […]

I’m not going to wax poetic about these veggie burgers. I’ll let them speak for themselves. But I WILL say that you ought to give them a try. I really dressed mine up with the chipotle & dried cranberry coleslaw I made to go with them, as well as some dill pickle, Swiss chard or […]
