    Cauliflower Gratin

    This is one of my favorite times of year because the seasonal produce stand close to where I live finally opens again! I'm going to be even more adventurous this year and try different kinds that I've never eaten. I have a subscription to Food Network magazine and it...

    Ever since I was a little boy,

    I've loved fruits and veggies. Salad is literally tastes every bit as delicious as a great pizza. I'm not a vegetarian or vegan, but I love my veggies. They keep my skin looking great, give me tons of energy and is a major reason why I have great health. If you made me a salad...

    Hawaiian Papaya

    I just had one, and it seriously blew my mind. It was so fragrant, soft, and sweet. It tasted a little like a ripe mango, and the seeds were crunchy and spicy, so unexpected!

    I go to the co-op and buy any cheap fruit

    and veg that is near its use by date, even swede! I wouldn't usually buy swede. I turn it onto soup, smoothies, anything. If fruit and veg were always that cheap, I would literally eat nothing but fruit and veg. The only reason I don't, is because I would need to eat TONS of it...

    I went egg- free veggie this May,

    after a couple of years playing around with being a vegetarian and I love it! I will still eat meat if pressed but after several months I find that I no longer have a taste for it. I get to eat such a greater variety of food and the tastes! I never realised that the meat...

    I Hate Poison On My Vegetables!!

    YES, I mean pesticides. Yes I know they help produce more produce. No, I don't mean you have to eat ONLY organically grown (unless you can afford them or grow them yourself). But methyl iodide has replaced methyl bromide [clever law skirting chemists - hey I WAS one, I'm allowed...

    When I was a little girl, my mother grew a fantastic garden and that's where we got all of our vegetables. We had several fruit trees in our yard, too- a pear tree, a plum tree, a cherry tree, and a peach tree. The only time we went to the supermarket was when we bought staples...

    Internal Punishment

    I love fruits and vegetables and always have. I was always the kid that ate my broccoli. In fact I usually ate the vegies first before the rest of the food on my plate. I just like the way they taste. Some have such complex flavors. For me its all about the taste. My first...

    I Can Work Up An Appetite Reading Seed Catalogs!

    Sounds silly, but it's true. To my way of thinking, the dark days of winter is the period of time between when the seed catalogs come out and when I can put seeds and plants in the ground.I can't remember any veggie that I didn't like as a child.
