2007 marked the 400th Anniversary of the first English-speaking settlement in the New World. I know…it seems like only yesterday. Back then, I was invited by National Geographic and Virginia Tourism to Jamestown to see what I could do with some of the cooking ingredients that were on hand 400 years ago. My utensils included […]

FUN FOR FALL – COOKING WITH BARLEY


No Comments

Not sure why, but I really don’t think much about barley during warm weather months. As far as grains go, barley is especially good for you. It tastes great and can be served as a side dish, cold salad or, as is the case most of the time, in a soup or stew. Barley’s full […]

I just returned from an early season, warm weather deer hunt in the central coast area of California.
