I ran to the grocery store yesterday to pick up a few items. Little did I know that a special six-hour sale was going on complete with free samples on every aisle and employees handing out candy.

These make beautiful and meaningful gifts, especially for moms and grandmothers. Here are a few that I found while searching Etsy today: You Choose the Name on the Heart Necklace […]
I was overjoyed to see parsnips in this week’s Bountiful Basket. I have only used parsnips twice in my life, both times for the same dish (Leek and Root Vegetable Gratin). I have developed quite a fondness for roasted vegetables, so I decided to roast them up with a few of the yams from this […]

The mums bloom. And they are breathtaking. Please feast your eyes upon these mums and these mums and these mums. And then have a look at […]
The purpose of running has changed for me many times over my lifetime. As a child, running was simply a way to get somewhere faster. I see this in my children now. Why walk when you can run? As I became involved in sports, running was part of the game. I never had to think […]

With our family still in California, these photos were taken by my parents (who you might know if you pick up your basket at the Clements Center). I will be back next weekend though, so I am excited to be able to place an order this […]
I had never really cooked with butternut squash much before this fall. However, it is quickly becoming one of our favorite ingredients.
