Joyful Cooking, Healthier Living

It's Summer!

Long days, steamy nights, and a bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables.  Summertime produce tends to be the brightest, juiciest, and sweetest of the year.  Weekly trips to the farm markets are exciting and fun, and my kitchen garden is producing tomatoes, okra, field peas, and peppers like crazy. So put on your sunscreen, hydrate, and get outside!  




This blog is a journal of the pursuit of good living and good food, rooted in a heritage of self reliance, love for self and love for others.
