Victoria Brigham replied to MONICA OSBORN's discussion 'Composting disconnect'
"We used to live an area rife with racoons.  Nobody in their right mind would put their trash out the night before.  That said, I never had a problem with racoons raiding the compost pile.  I think as long as you stick with vegetable…"

"Hi,   This is a really late reply, but I saw your post, and thought you might like to know that there is a farm near me that does just this.  Here's the link:  http://www.hoofsnhorns.com/CowSharepage.html"

Victoria Brigham replied to Cornelia's discussion 'How to have a minimalist, homegrown baby registry' in the group Earth Mamas and Papas: HOMEGROWN parenting
"My sage advice (my kids are 26, 13 and 10) is wait!  People will give you a huge amount of stuff, and you can find lots of stuff at yard sales, second hand stores, etc.  The things you will really need right away are diapers, t-shirts (or…"

Victoria Brigham replied to Cornelia's discussion 'Greens recipes: Kale, chard, collard, lettuces...what do you do with your luscious leafies?'
"Favorite greens recipe:  saute onion and garlic, add chopped tomatoes (canned works fine) and chopped washed greens, saute 10 mins or so, until cooked through.  Season with salt and pepper, and perhaps a splash of Tabasco."

Victoria Brigham replied to Lizz's discussion 'Neighborhood Composting?'
"The issue of putting anything in the hole is that you no longer have a hole, so it isn't doing what the hole was intended to do, ie fill up with water when it rains.  If you wanted to not have a gaping hole, you'd need to have a…"

Victoria Brigham replied to Mari Mann's discussion 'Egg gifts for the Holidays?' in the group Backyard Chickens
"It won't keep well, but anything custardy: zabaglione (sp?), custard pies, and , of course, egg nog. Egg breads: challah, brioche, maybe pannetone? Never made it, but I think it has eggs in it. Cheesecake also has a fair amount of eggs. If…"

Victoria Brigham replied to Coyote Ridge Farms's discussion 'Kombucha Carbonation' in the group Kombucha
"I have the same problem, and recently saw a similar post on a kombucha list I'm on. The reply said the original poster wasn't doing anything wrong, so I'm still wondering about this. I'm getting the same thing, eg, vinegary smell…"

Victoria Brigham commented on Stephanie M, Together In Food's blog post 'Is There A Crisis in Home Cooking?'
"I think cooking has become too "professionalized." Jamie Oliver's site is prime example of this. His idea of simple and quick is that of a professional chef, not a civilian. Everyone seems to think that you need fancy expensive…"

Victoria Brigham commented on Stephanie M, Together In Food's blog post 'Is There A Crisis in Home Cooking?'
"Re Jamie Oliver's "30 minute" meals, I looked up his recipes on the website (*that* took almost 30 minutes). I found them over-complicated. Salads with capers. I like capers, but I don't usually have them hanging around the…"

"Re the pumpkin/butternut squash thing - I pretty much always use squash instead of pumpkin for pie. It used to be that they sold squash in cans like pumpkin too, but I don't think you can find it anymore. Anyway, you can't tell the…"

Victoria Brigham commented on Stephanie M, Together In Food's blog post 'Is There A Crisis in Home Cooking?'
"It's absolutely true that fewer and fewer people are cooking at home, but I think that publications like Gourmet are part of the problem. Everyone seems to think that you need a professional degree to cook a meal, and every recipe has a list of…"
