Our next free webinar is on Friday, March 9, 2012 at 1pm Pacific. I’ve asked a special and knowledgeable guest — my friend Vickilynn Haycraft of Real Food Living — to share her expertise on the topic of grain mills. Vickilynn has been using and reviewing products and tools of the homemaking vocation for over 25 years. She really knows her stuff! Also, the webinar will kick-off two drawings for free grain mills! This post contains the details.

Pan-Fried Parsnips

Pan Fried Parsnips | Don't assume you don't like parsnips. That is, unless you've already had them like this -- pan-fried, browned and caramelized in butter. Super good and super easy. Beth, with whom we shared a garden last summer, gave me this recipe and a taste-test of her prized leftovers. They were fantastic, so I couldn't wait to try it myself. And the whole family loved these! | GNOWFGLINS.com

End Times Food — “The Last Pilgrims”

The Last Pilgrims by Michael Bunker

A group of plain people, the Vallenses, live and survive in what was once Central Texas. “The Last Pilgrims” is a good, fun, clean, thought-provoking end-times adventure story. You begin to care for and understand the people. But what I love most is that this story makes survival living and eating seem real to me. If you’re going to buy the book, please wait until February 24, 2012 to participate in the book bomb!

A departure from the usual, today I’d like to share… mostly pictures. I’ve shared a lot of these on Facebook, but I thought it would be fun to do a catch up of sorts for people who don’t see me over there. Enjoy! :)
