Silk Soy Yogurt

I just had a container of black cherry Silk brand soy yogurt, and I really liked it. In fact, I think I like it more than “regular” milk-based yogurt. I’d buy it again. Silk Soy Yogurt

New Moon Farms CSA

Beth and I just joined our first CSA, New Moon Farms. In case you don’t know, CSA stands for “community supported agriculture” and the idea is that you buy a share (or, in our case, a half-share) of one growing season at a local farm. The farmers plant, raise, and harvest the food, and then… Continue reading New Moon Farms CSA

Treehugger: TreeHugger 100-Mile Thanksgiving Challenge

Treehugger: TreeHugger 100-Mile Thanksgiving Challenge Beth and I are strongly considering taking the 100-Mile Thanksgiving Challenge. But it’s a bit difficult. (I guess if it was easy, it wouldn’t be a challenge, now would it?) So far we’ve found a decent variety of ingredients all grown or raised locally – beef and pork, mushrooms, cheese,… Continue reading Treehugger: TreeHugger 100-Mile Thanksgiving Challenge

Ah, it’s got Nutrasweet!

I figured out why the new Coca-Cola BlaK has only 45 calories (see yesterday’s blog entry, below). It’s because it’s got a mix of high fructose corn syrup and aspartame (Nutrasweet) as sweeteners! The coffee flavor does a pretty good job of masking the hideous taste of the aspartame.

According to the company’s press release: Coca-Cola BlaK is a sophisticated, premium blend of Coca-Cola, natural flavors and coffee essence. The effervescence and rich flavor of… Continue reading Coca-Cola BlaK

Borracho Beans

It wasn’t until I took a Spanish class that I learned that borracho means “drunk”. I’d had borracho beans at restaurants before but didn’t realize the source of the name. They’re called borracho because the beans are cooked in beer. Here’s my recipe. 4 cups cooked pinto beans 1/2 pound bacon 1/2 onion 1 clove… Continue reading Borracho Beans
