Chicken Taco Soup

This is another one of those recipes that is both budget friendly and healthy. It is more like a chili but you can add more chicken stock to thin it out. It also makes a ton of soup so great for leftovers for the rest of the week! I like to serve it with cheese […]

With legislation moving through Congress demanding that all agricultural practices be ‘science-based,’ I believe our food system is at Wounded Knee. I do not believe […]

Out with the Old…In with the New

If you have read some of my previous posts you might have noticed some of the adjectives I use in describing my son. “Active,” “spirited,”and “a handful” are some of the words that don’t even begin to capture our daily adventures with Gideon.  Before I get into the meat of this blog, I need to […]
