Canning and freezing season is in full swing at our house.  A few weeks ago, we spent the weekend making one batch of canned tomatoes and creating all sorts of peach items: peach and tomato salsa, peach jam, pickled peaches, peach-infused vinegar, peach-infused vodka, and peach bread.  Our basement shelves

Although I am not a vegetarian, I am a huge fan of produce.  Some of my favorite meals are based around fruits and vegetables.  So, this time of year is quite exciting for me.  After a long winter and spring with almost no freshly picked produce, it is a delight

It is two months into the year, and we have been successful with our goal to use only locally sourced meats, produce, and dairy items.  While it has made meal planning a little more challenging, it has been exciting to visit our biweekly farmer's market to see what produce will
