Got the winter blues? Bacon is the cure. Cure and smoke your own nitrate-free Sichuan-style bacon for noodle dishes, fried rice, braised beef, and this spicy cabbage stir-fry.
I am a wife, mother, step-mom and grandma, trying to be a more conscientious consumer, passionate about local foods and sustainable agriculture. I’m a cook and a baker feeding my family the best way possible on a limited budget.
In May of 2012 we moved from a townhouse with a postage-stamp garden to a big house with a citrus orchard in the back and a huge blank slate in the front. Every extra dime and brain cell is devoted to making the garden of my dreams and somehow along the way I became a permaculture geek, too.
I also run Gainesville Cow Pool, an online community for the cooperative purchase of local, sustainable, and affordable meat for middle-to-low-income families.
