Creamy Celery Soup for a Cool Spring Day

What's For Dinner
By Judy Mayer June 4, 2012

 

It’s a lovely cool, spring day and a perfect day for this light, creamy soup. Creamy doesn’t have to imply rich and fat laden! This soup is thickened and given a velvety consistency with the addition of a potato.

Lessons from a farmer

In the Aisles
By Paul Sloth June 6, 2012

Altfrid Krusenbaum watches the skies from his farm in rural Walworth County and crosses his fingers. His family’s livelihood depends on the weather. As a dairy farmer, Altfrid monitors the weather because his herd of 153 cows depends on him. He in turn, depends on them. Until you walk with a farmer through his or her operation, you don’t have a really good sense of just what it takes to produce the food we eat or in this case drink. Ask Altfrid or any other farmer and they’ll be glad to tell you.

This Lebanese Salad a Meal in Itself

What's For Dinner
By Judy Mayer June 12, 2012

 

I’m a big fan of the Mediterranean Diet. Next to the DASH (dietary approach to stop hypertension) it’s one of my favorites. The Mediterranean Diet also received a “best” rating from an expert panel convened by the U.S. News & World Report in 2011.  That’s pretty cool! However, it’s not really a diet. It’s a lifestyle – there is no one factor to pinpoint its health benefits – it’s the whole diet and lifestyle surrounding it that are responsible for its success.

 

This recipe is a classic example of what you might find for lunch or dinner in a Grecian kitchen.

Learning to BAG IT: Giving up plastic, one bag at a time

Sounding Board
By Your Board June 12, 2012

It’s been nearly a month since I attended the Outpost screening of the movie Bag It.  And I have to hand it to Director Suzan Beraza.  Choosing Jeb Berrier as the focus of the movie was absolutely brilliant.  He’s a believable "everyman” whose experience with plastic isn’t so different from every one of ours. He’s not an avid environmentalist or a radical.  He’s just a guy in a world filled (increasingly) with plastic.  Best of all, he has a sense of humor about it, which makes the movie engaging and genuinely entertaining.

Now you know why I'm not a farmer

In the Aisles
By Paul Sloth June 20, 2012

The folks growing our food, right here in our own state, are either dealing with near drought conditions in the south or flooding up north. Either way, their crops are being affected. You might not notice it or think about it, because there usually isn’t a sign reading, “Sorry, no strawberries this year. The heat ate them.” But what if there was?

An avocado combined with beans is genius!

What's For Dinner
By Judy Mayer June 25, 2012

 

It has come to my attention more than once that avocados are avoided because of their high fat content. Yes, one avocado contains 15grams of fat, with the majority of it being heart healthy monounsaturated fats - but this is no reason to avoid this powerhouse food. You just shouldn’t eat them like apples!
