Eco-Friendly Christmas Gifts

I try to think of the environment with all that I do, and Christmas gift giving is no exception. I was thrilled to meet a couple at a farmer's market that makes handmade beeswax candles with all natural and local ingredients. Local bees produce the beeswax and they are scented with handcrafted […]

Use Home-Grown Pumpkin For Pumpkin Cheesecake

Last spring my organic seed supplier had a special on pie pumpkin seeds. Naturally, I decided to grow pie pumpkins for the first year ever. This left me with a problem: I can only eat so many pumpkin pies. I did find they work well in pumpkin soup (you can find my grandmother's pumpkin soup […]
