What are your plans for the new year? Been thinking about learning new traditional cooking skills, eating better in general, improving your health, or improving your traditional kitchen? If so, you’re in the right place — those are the topics of next week’s podcast. I’ll be taking a few questions in this epissode. If you want to know anything about getting started with traditional cooking or a particular skill, let me know. I need your questions by Tuesday, January 1, 2013 — if you want to get them answered in episode #17, that is. This post shares multiple ways to add your questions.

Looking for new desserts to try this winter? New Year’s celebrations are still coming up and any of these would be perfect for a fellowship or gathering!
May your hearts be lifted in praise this Christmas for the precious gift of Jesus and the joy He brings. We treasure you among the blessings and gifts He gives. Thank you for sharing your life with us. From our family to yours, have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New Year! This post includes our digital Christmas card, plus the part of the shot I didn’t want to be included. 😉
Thanks everyone for submitting your dehydrating questions for today’s podcast. I’m so happy you reached out and shared what’s on your mind, and I’m even happier that I have an opportunity to help. So without further ado, here’s this episode of Know Your Food with Wardee. See below for a list of the questions answered and the links shared.
This is a variation of the Coconut-Honey Candy I shared last Easter. These are more Christmas-y with the mint. I took this candy to a Christmas potluck. The days leading up to the potluck had been really busy and I woke up that morning thinking I needed to come up with super easy dessert or I wouldn’t be taking anything at all. And literally 15 minutes later, this was in the fridge chilling.
We’re heading down home… to your farms! Urban, suburban, or rural — whatever you’re growing and doing, we want to see it. Today’s featured farm is Spellcast Farm a small diversified located in Catawba County, North Caroline. The farm is run by Michelle T. Barnard and Walter McSwain and has been in existence since 2008. They recently became the first Animal Welfare Approved farm for rabbits! They garden and raise goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, geese, and rabbits. Many locals get to enjoy Spellcast farm “real food” through the farmer’s market. Come on in and visit their lovely farm.
You may remember that last June I took a trip to Arizona to get help with a software implementation (and I got to meet many Arizona readers at dinner one evening!). I didn’t mention at the time but the software that we were putting in place and switching “on” was Infusionsoft. In this post, I’ll share the backstory behind this switch and the results. Then I’ll ask for your feedback about what we can do to better serve you — plus I’m asking you for a favor to help me get a temporary “job”. Check inside the post for details.
The items I share below are a little off-the-beaten path. They’re not your typical Christmas gifts in that they’re made by a small home business or perhaps only a traditional foodie can appreciate them. Some are hold-in-your-hands and some are digital. The list won’t be long, but it is here — and only if you’re hunting for a special something. If you’re not, I’ll see you back here on Monday. 😉
Next week’s podcast is all about dehydrating and I’ll be taking listener questions. Now’s your chance to get your questions answered! I need your questions by Tuesday, December 18, 2012. So…. ask away! Or feel free to share comments or suggestions for the new dehydrating class.
