CSA Cookoff: Egg on Pizza

"Cool, you're welcome...I hope!  I have to admit though, I've never done it -- I've used radishes in a pico and they were very good, added awesome crunch, but my fear is the beets will dominate the flavor.   If I had some…"

CSA Cookoff: Egg on Pizza

"Great idea, Jennifer!  I'll be sure to try this on a future pizza.  And if you have any of those cute tomatoes left could you make a little pico de gallo with them and the jalapeño?  Maybe even dice up one of the beets…"

What's in Jon's Pantry

"Thanks, Heirloom Lizzie!  Keep in mind that it's large and open because it's just a shelf at one end of our basement, not an actual separate pantry :)"

"Anne, this is soooo cool!  Thanks for sharing.  I've been making jam without pectin because I didn't want to buy it but now I know what I'll do whilst making a batch of applesauce.  "

Jonathan Spee replied to Kirsten Madaus's discussion 'COOKED: The end of the road' in the group Cooked: HOMEGROWN Book Club
"Great description of how you enjoyed the end of the book, Kirsten.  I don't think I cranked the tunes but I'm pretty sure I had a fermented beverage - it was a homebrew that I made with beet juice in it (which most people who tried…"

"That sounds good to finish up next week.  And I like the idea of sharing a photo of something we've made that was motivated or inspired by the book (or just related to it).  "

"Tara, I loved that part with the health inspector too!  Pretty awesome how in many cases the wisdom of past generations knows what's best even without having had science to back everything up.  Science is great too, but it seems like…"

"I loved this part of the book so much and was eager to get to it when I began the book. I made two different fermented non-alcoholic drinks this summer, Kombucha and Ginger Bug.  Both are fantastic and leave me with a nice knowledge that…"

Jonathan Spee replied to Jennifer's discussion 'Week 4 Discussion: Part 3/Air' in the group Cooked: HOMEGROWN Book Club
"Hi Everyone,  I really took my time responding this time!  Anyways, glad there was still time. Kristin, I totally agree with you about how Pollan's books can make you feel good one moment and bad the next. I guess that's good…"

"  Hi Everyone, and thank you, Julie, for starting this week’s conversation with great thoughts and reflections! I hadn’t really felt the way Julie was feeling in terms of Pollan pointing a finger at women, but then again, I’m…"

"So, I'm really late folks! Sorry, I've tried to keep up but the past week has been insane and I'm not sure it's going to get much easier. I'll try  to read all of Chapter 2 but I don't want to let the group down so…"

Jennifer replied to Jonathan Spee's discussion 'Week 2 Discussion: Chapter 1, parts IV-VIII' in the group Cooked: HOMEGROWN Book Club
"I love that this group isn't a perfect sample of the population at large. Folks here aren't taking their meat lightly. You guys are answering the charge that Jon called for in his opening question: How can meat be returned to its former…"

David Axberg replied to Jonathan Spee's discussion 'Week 2 Discussion: Chapter 1, parts IV-VIII' in the group Cooked: HOMEGROWN Book Club
"Sorry so late. Great discussions so far. Loved the whole idea of asking how do we get meat to be a big deal again. I for one am privileged of being able to raise all the meat we eat (Beef, Pork "bacon", chicken and turkey). We do make it a…"

"I am a day late but summer is my busy season and time got away from me. For me meat has never been my favorite. I wish I could say its from a deep understanding but mainly I have never acquired a taste for it. Every now and then I crave a steak or a…"

"Thanks for the discussion opener! I am such a Michael Pollan fan - but I have to say that this book lacks the density of information that I so enjoyed in "Omnivore's Dilemma." Anyone else out there feel this way? His bbq stories are…"

Hi, Jonathan. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here: site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content. I’m so glad you found us. We love getting our HOMEGROWN mitts on dads who love good food! I hope you’ll turn up plenty of projects and ideas here to spur you on, and I hope you’ll be game for sharing some of your own, too—maybe on that coldframe hoop house or any home-brewing experiments—in our member blog, The Stew. (Also, just a note that if you’re ever inclined to repost from your personal blog here on HOMEGROWN, please do! Reposts in full with a link back to your blog, rather than just posting a link, tend to get more eyeballs, but it’s up to you. We just like to help spread the love!) Elsewhere on HOMEGROWN, you can always find the latest additions to the site at the top of the homepage, and if you’ve ever got questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home!
