August 2014 Articles and Recipes

August 28, 2014

I can’t believe August is already drawing to a close! Where does time go? Before we know it, the leaves will begin to turn beautiful colors and the temperatures will drop–perhaps this is already happening in some areas of the country.

 

As I always say around this time of year, take advantage of farmer’s markets! This is when they have a ton of produce (both summer and fall varieties) readily available for great prices. For those into do-it-yourself projects, consider taking up something self-sustaining like canning or drying foods. The initial set-up cost might be higher than you’d like, but it pays off in spades over the years to come.

 

FYI: many of the recipes below are allergen-free, whether labeled or not, so please read them carefully!
