Home – Come Back To The Table


 

Welcome to Come Back to the Table

We ask so much of ourselves today! Women and men both have challenging, demanding jobs that require huge commitments of time and energy.

We have families that require time, attention, and nurturing, children who require our loving presence, attention and guidance.  We have homes that need care and maintenance.  Fueling all these demands on our energy with fast food, convenience foods, and take-out doesn’t work.

We need real food, honest food, full of vitamins and minerals, and so do our families. I invite you to come back to the table, to savor the difference real food can make in your energy level and your sense of well-being. I invite you to learn simple food preparation with fresh ingredients, seasonal eating that anchors us, that lets us live in harmony with the rhythms of the Earth.

Crockpot Breakfast

This post is from last week’s Coloradoan column.  They didn’t print the whole article I wrote, so am adding it here.

Cooking overnight, breakfast greets us with savory aromas, ready to go on a busy day or a laid-back weekend. The recipes go together quickly the night before, … Continue reading
