Chef Camp #1: Priorities

Chef Camp #1: Priorities

Budget? Health? Low-sodium? Organic? Vegetarian? Vegan? Allergies or sensitivities? Time?

All reasons are important.  What works for you may not work for anyone else.  The best priorities are the most important ones to you and your family.

Taking some time and seriously considering the aspects of food and eating that are important to you and your family can help you define your cooking style and your kitchen.

Site Updates

Hey folks!

Just a few updates around here you might like to check out.

1. Check out our Publicity and Press page: WSU Global Campus recorded one of our college course farm tours and made it nice and neat for their students.  There is a link to the 45 minute tour you tube video on that page.  Fun!

2. We are in the process of moving all our photos from various hard drives (some of which have died... again...) to Flickr.  You may have noticed a bit of a change in our page tabs at the top: now instead of just "Photos" you'll find a link to Facebook Photos and to Flickr Photos.  You should be able to see the photos whether you have an account for the services or not.  (If not, let me know!)

Pumpkin Potato Pancakes

A.K.A. Pumpkin Latkas

Part Hannukah, part Thanksgiving, part necessity.

Pumpkin Potato Pancakes

I was surfing the web looking for inspiration for an egg-free breakfast and these are what I came up with.  Egg free in part because my chickens are on strike again and store-bought eggs are just so different!  Egg-free in another part because as much as farm eggs are yummy and healthy and filling and delicious, some people still simply cannot eat eggs.

Oh yeah, and it's kid approved...


See that?  Sour cream not even touched...

Chef Camp: Monthly goals: December

Happy December Folks!

While I'm sure you all are loving reading about my opinions on how to improve yourself and your kitchen, I'd bet that everyone would love to hear also about your challenges and growth.

Many of the various "boot camp" ideas also have a participation or sharing component.  It's that whole build community thing, right?

I would love to know that some of you would like to grow and stretch as well.  Make a list.  Not a long one, a short one will do.  A list of what you'd like to improve upon, learn about, try out, etc. in your kitchen this month.  Feel free to share some or all of your list here and then at the end of the month, lets report back and talk about it.  Lets work together, build some community, and hold each other accountable for what we'd like to try.

Ready?  I'll start with mine below...

1. try out some pre-made breakfast type pastries for HM in the mornings and quick breakfasts for the rest of us.
2. find one new reasonably fast breakfast idea a week.
