Cider Season

For me, there's still no drink that screams fall more than apple cider. I love a glass of hot spiced cider on a cool autumn day, but cider can be used in baking and cooking as well. I hope you'll enjoy these recipes from my kitchen to yours!

Fall in Love With Dutch Ovens

Celebrate the arrival of fall weather with delicious, hearty Dutch oven recipes. However, if you don’t own one, feel free to try these recipes in a pot, oven safe skillet, or another baking dish. 

Farm Fresh

Inspired by the mission of Urban Agrarian, this month’s recipes feature fresh, locally available ingredients that are full of flavor and nutrients.

Commentary

Exercise Your Right to Vote

In the wise words of a founding father and third U.S. President, Thomas Jefferson: “We do not have government by the majority. We have government by the majority who participate.”  

The words are simple but hold much truth. If we don’t vote, we not only miss the opportunity to support a candidate who shares our specific views and concerns, but we also allow others to chart a course that impacts our future.


A Perspective of Gratitude

Is your cup half empty or half full? The majority of us have heard this question before, and we know the answer depends on our perspective. The month of November comes every year with the reassurance that we are to give thanks. Truthfully, we have reasons to give thanks every month of the year, and every day of that year for that matter.
