The local raspberries are available -- about half the size of the mammoth berries I can buy pretty much year round, and tangier tasting somehow. And the fresh local blueberries are ready too. Mmmm: half a cup of each for breakfast, with a mand... Read more

I love hot cabbage and beet borscht in the winter time . . . with lots of garlic and red chili flakes, carrots and celery, maybe even a potato or two. Great stuff. But: decided yesterday to make a quick quick chilled summer borscht version... Read more

Tough Day
