Applesauce for Africa! And plum chutney and strawberry jam and guacamole and . . .

Fri, 08 Jan 2010 07:13:21 +0000

It’s plum season round here and, although plums are making a showing at a whopping $8/kg in the shops and stands, the trees in my neighbourhood are heavy with lovely fruit. I’ve certainly been known to pull one off the tree, give it a good shine on my shirt and eat it right there in [...]

This New Zealand Life

Sat, 19 Dec 2009 07:47:29 +0000

For me, life in New Zealand has been all about lifestyle. We went from a harried lifestyle in the US to this New Zealand Life. Most Saturdays find us mucking about it the vege garden. Usually it’s pulling weeds and watering, but today we did a bit of hand to hand combat with the compost [...]

The Incredible Edible New Zealand Egg

Thu, 29 Oct 2009 02:44:58 +0000

We moved to New Zealand to find the good life. We found the good egg. The New Zealand egg, fresh from the hen, sporting a good bit of  whatever that is that is cleaned off of American eggs before they reach those pristine styrofoam cartons, big as life and, oftentimes, neither fully white nor fuly [...]

Zen and the Art of Cheesemaking

Sat, 17 Oct 2009 07:30:10 +0000

Making your own cheese is a great way to eat locally. Some local milk and some very local labor and you’ll be enjoying homemade cheese in under an hour. My first memory of homemade cheese is from my teen years when my dad started making cheese. I remember cheesecloth balls draining at the sink. And [...]

Do you speak my language?

Thu, 15 Oct 2009 02:18:41 +0000

As many of you know, I’ve recently made the big move to New Zealand. It’s been quite an adventure and one that is in no small way related to my quest for the best food I can find. From my almost immediate trip to the local farmers’ market to my now weekly bread baking, my [...]

Red, White and Blue

Sat, 04 Jul 2009 22:21:00 +0000

Today, daughter and I made a red, white and blue cake. A simple chocolate layer cake made with fresh ingredients with freshly whipped cream is topped with local strawberries and bright blueberries. Yum!

Blessed are the cheese makers!

Sun, 05 Apr 2009 18:07:27 +0000

Things are looking up with regard to cheese making! I seem to have the process down, although grocery store milk is unpredictable at best. Liquid rennet seems to be the way to go. And bringing the milk up to about 95 degrees F seems to help as well.  Husband and I made a trip out [...]

Alternative Meat

Fri, 06 Mar 2009 14:48:04 +0000

Many health-conscious folks have considered scaling back their consumption of beef. Easier said than done. Unless you are a vegetarian or a vegan, beef probably comprises a hefty portion of your protein intake. It’s readily available, even hard to avoid, and most omnivorous Americans eat it on a weekly basis.   Beef is not always [...]

Watching my dinner swim

Sat, 31 Jan 2009 02:38:55 +0000

In my quest to eat healthfully and locally, I’ve zeroed in on fish as the most obvious way to go. Living in Florida means that dinner can often be found swimming just hours before it’s on the table. Not really knowing too much about fishing, I looked to a colleague for information, advice, and, well, [...]

Oat Cakes (or what to do with leftover oatmeal)

Tue, 27 Jan 2009 03:23:42 +0000

  If you’ve got leftover oatmeal, pack it up and put it in the fridge for the next day. When breakfast time rolls around, add an egg or two to your now cold oatmeal. Mix it together with clean hands as if you’re making meatloaf or hamburgers. Shape it into little cakes and pan fry [...]
