We returned home from our 3 week vacation and could not wait to see, in this order, Flora and our vegetable garden. Flora was all joy and sunshine, but our garden looked a wee bit sad. My dad diligently tended the garden in our absence, but the heat of Eastern North Carolina took its toll on my cucumbers.

Another week’s progress to document in my Garden Diary. I don’t know about your location, but once winter decided to hit the road, we have had a really nice spring.
Full confession: I love kitchen gadgets! Some (my husband) might say it’s an unhealthy obsession. If I were a choco-holic, it probably wouldn’t be wise for me to work at Godiva Chocolate. If shopping were my addiction, I probably need not work at The Mall of America. Well…if kitchen gadgets were your addiction, Williams-Sonoma might not be the best place for you to work…if you actually wanted to bring home a paycheck. While I did love working at Williams-Sonoma, my husband swears that our bottom line is greatly improved since I resigned from the store…go figure. And while, I’m not a medicine cabinet snoop, I am a kitchen gadget drawer snoop. It’s always eye-opening to see what gadgets my fellow kitchen-istas keep on hand and actively use.
It always makes for a funny moment when a guest at my home has a need to open my bottom oven and is greeted by a big bowl of eggshells. I am invariably asked, “Uh, why are there eggshells in your oven?” Then I have to try to give them the abbreviated version of my composting and organic gardening trials, tribulations and adventures. At the end of the discussion, I usually get an “Oh…” (which in their mind is followed by ‘that’s more than I really needed to know’ or ‘wow, she’s way crunchier than I realized’).
I have been using coconut oil (in addition to olive and canola) for several years. I especially enjoy it in Thai cuisine and for sauteing some vegetables. In the winter, I make my son a chai coconut latte (chai spice, coconut oil, milk, vanilla and honey all frappe-ed together…one of his favs). My daughter likes to use it when she makes eggs and her protein pancakes (eggs and bananas).

Canning, like any other skill, takes a little education and a lot of common sense. Most people are intimidated by stories they’ve heard about exploding canners and botulism. The pressure canners of today have come a long way and are much safer than those in the past. And by following some very specific, but very clear, guidelines, the risk of bacteria borne disease are eliminated. I have been safely soups and stocks for 5 years, without a single incident of food borne illness.
