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.

“Every Meal is a Choice”

Our love affair with convenience and speed led us to processed foods, which many of us rely on to the point that we no longer cook at home.  Or if we do cook, we no longer cook from scratch, depending on boxed and canned and frozen foods for our meals.  The problem is that most processed and commercially produced foods are loaded with sugars and refined salt, preservatives and additives … Continue reading

Keep These Things Out of the Dishwasher

Wash these things by hand: Cast iron, even enameled cast iron I let these pans cool, then add water if there is residue from grilling or pan-frying. Let stand until the residue is softened, then use a stiff brush to brush the softened remains right down the drain. Use a little soap as needed, but water is almost always sufficient. I dry the pan with a cloth, and finish on … Continue reading
