This afternoon, after creating a new post over at my other blog: A View From Table One, I tried a little experiment. I imported all the posts from this blog over there. I've actually been toying with this idea for a few weeks.

When I first created this blog a year ago, it was to record my journey towards a special end, the move out west. With the beginning of the New Year, I decided that I would continue the blog as a means to record the next step of my journey which is the search for a meaningful (and profitable) career. My other blog became a weekly forum of articles for whatever was on my mind at the moment, generally my view on something political, cultural, or personal.

For the first year, this separation worked and kept me focused on the task at hand. Now however, I find that I am referring readers to one blog or the other, which may or may not be convenient for them. From my own reading habits, even if I know that a blogger has two sites, I will generally stick to reading one site over the other unless I have an abundance of time. Which is what led me today to use blogger's very simply export/import function to import all of the blog posts from this blog to my original blog.

Now, tell me what you think: Do you manage more than one blog? Does it make sense to maintain two blogs or does one do the job? As a blog reader, do you follow a blogger's multiple sites?

I prefer reading one blog although I did go back and forth with yours. I really love the clean layout of your other blog the best and it's easier to read without the colored background. I tend to like simple when my focus is reading content.

And I prefer two separate blogs. Table One appears too congested and in an identity crisis right now.

Collard Greens with White Beans - A Vegetarian Take on a Classic

Could a vegetarian version of collard greens ever compete with the traditional goodness of collard greens cooked with a smoked ham hock?

I was skeptical until I made this recipe. It is every bit as delicious. Taking the place of the ham hock is the rind of parmesan or other hard cheese. I keep a small plastic bag of cheese rinds in the freezer, they are the perfect flavor enhancer of stocks and soups, and now collard greens.

Similar recipes call for dried beans, but sine I live 10,400 feet above sea level, dried beans are always a challenge unless I'm using a pressure cooker. For this recipe, I opted for canned beans and am just as happy as can be.

This recipe is quick, easy, delicious, and so rich and satisfying a bowlful with a slice of garlicky olive oil toasted bread makes the perfect week night dinner. It is also a satisfying side dish.

Let's get cooking!

Ingredients:
1 bunch of collard greens, touch center stems removes, leaves torn into large pieces

Open to the Spirit - Book Review

Open to the Sprit is like reading a letter from a friend. McKnight writes a very accessible introduction to the Holy Spirit and its role in our spiritual life. McKnight uses several stories from his life and others to share how the Holy Spirit consoles and deepens our daily spiritual walk. A terrific book for those seeking an introduction to a relationship with the Holy Spirit.

Dinner with Julia

What do Ina Garten and Martha Stewart have in common? Both women describe cooking through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking when they were young as foundation to learning to cook.
Julia Child is an inspiration to most home cooks of a certain age. I found her so inspiring that at one time, I had all of her cookbooks, including a first edition of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and had read almost every biography written about her, My Life in France, being my favorite. And yet! I confess that until this week, my cooking adventures in Mastering were limited to her omelet recipe, her iconic recipes for onion soup and Beef Bourguignon.
When the Food52 Cookbook Club on Facebook chose Mastering as its cookbook for the month, I jumped at the chance to finally use Julia’s first cookbook for its intended purpose.
I decided to start with something easy, a poached egg. I purchased the best organic eggs I could afford, read the recipe several times, and began. After I’d tur…
