BOOK GIVEAWAY : It's Time to Plant Your Garden!

Work your garden - you'll end up with plenty of food;
Play and party - you'll end up with an empty plate.
-Proverbs 28:19

That's a picture of the two tomato plants I planted yesterday. I don't have a green thumb, mu thumb is so black that everything I plant dies...but every year I try again.

Our dreams - yes, mine too - are often like that. 

I have failed or experienced setbacks on my road to becoming a writer more times than I can count. In fact, my writer-dream has been twenty years in the making!

What do you need to do today or this week to plant your garden, to start that new career, or begin that dream that you have been putting off for years?

What first step can you begin today, to bring it into being?

Leave a comment below and I will give away your choice of an ebook or paperback copy of GOD LOVES YOUR DREAM next Monday.

I can't wait to hear what your first step will be!

I guess not really my dream, but my daughter's. She loves horses and we don't have the finances nor the knowledge to get a horse. Today, we went to a horse rescue farm and found out that they provide horse training for free. Once we complete that, my daughter will be able to volunteer at the facility. That way we can get the knowledge of how to take care of one AND "own" 50 plus horses. There's nothing like living a dream through her eyes.

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!

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…
