Do you remember Dr. Seuss’s “Green Eggs and Ham” ? I had this rhyming story of two people discussing when to eat green eggs and ham first read to me by my kindergarten teacher, Ms. Lacy. Afterward, we shared green eggs and ham (which consisted of scrambled eggs dyed green, with pieces of ham mixed in.) I remember thinking it was the most disgusting thing, and didn’t want to eat it, even though I loved scrambled eggs and ham--when they [...]

As spring arrives and the farmers markets begin to fill back up with fresh produce, I am always drawn the the section with fresh greens. There is something so vibrant about the color green in the spring, especially if the plants outdoors have been hibernating during the winter. The green seems to pop out with all the enthusiasm of the changing season. In the aisle of the farmer's market, this is practically a beacon that guides me in. Before I [...]

As a child, I lived down the street from my three older male cousins. They were your stereotypical Texas boys who played sports, hunted, and fished; and as their younger female cousin, they felt it was important that they teach me to partake in these activities along with them. So, in first grade, I embarked on my first fishing trip and joined my extended family on a trip to the Wichita Mountains. I remember it being a hot summer day, [...]

Lately I have been thinking a lot about bread. Several of my colleagues greatly enjoy quality bread, and their enthusiasm for the qualities of “the loaf” have rekindled my own passion for it. As a child, my mother would make a loaf in her bread machine each week. We bought flour by the 25-pound bag at Sam’s Club or Costco, and learned early on that the “thump thump thump” sound during the mix cycle meant the dough was too dry. [...]

My sister, Caitlin, and I spent last week climbing and eating our way through the hills of San Francisco. (Full disclosure: neither of us must contend with any food intolerances, so we did not have to do any prerequisite planning around that). However, one of the perks of living in or traveling to a larger city, of course, is the increased availability of delicious food that does fit into a modified diet. Many of the menus from restaurants where we [...]

Culture has always been synonymous with food for me. Being from a large city with countless inhabitants whose people originate from far away places is as exciting as it is delicious. As a child, I loved to try new foods from different countries. It told me about what was important to that culture, which is usually family. It is also a great lesson in sustainability. A quick glance at any culture’s food teaches about what is local to the region [...]
