We all eventually fall.

With lust, uncontested trust, magnificent love, and an appetite for comfort, we fall into love. A longing to be with the “other”—animal moans and primal groans only last so long.  

At first, we fit together like clams’ shells, and other times we push and pull and only meld with a little lubrication.  

Making the connection stronger—it’s often worth the trouble if you give it your best shot!

Achieving a Sustainable Future Requires Beasts of Change

Many of us hope to create a sustainable future somehow…. but the answers aren’t found in the future, they must be discovered here today. Because climate change is causing more frequent and more severe storms, floods, droughts, wildfires, and extreme weather events every day,

Climate change is a REAL threat to human well-being and the health of the planet, it requires urgent and far-reaching actions and fundamental changes in all aspects of human life to increase people’s and nature’s ability to cope with, and respond to, climate change.

Indeed, our entire biosphere is breaking down as we stand by and knew it all along.  

We knew burning fossils for fuel was going to create climate havoc. Exxon scientists predicted the pace and scale of climate change more than 40 years ago, the oil firm knew about and downplayed the risks posed by continued fossil fuel use.

Had the world adapted to climate change in the 1970s the current climate crises could have been avoided. Now, the world faces the uphill task of preserving a livable planet for our species.

Do you Have the Huevos To Discover a Good Egg?

Someone I know in Iowa was just bemoaning the rising price of a dozen eggs. Imagine $5.99 a dozen!! I asked them what it takes to lay an egg out of the body of a birdlike reptile. 

If an egg came out of you, dear one, how much would it cost? 

Our yearning for the cheapest egg misses the big picture. Driving the price down in the shortest amount of producing time hurts the farmer, their community, and the birds. 

We positively love eggs. Not only are eggs a great source of vitamins and minerals, but they can also be used as part of a self-sufficient food plan; they can be raised right in your own backyard! 

I discovered the wonder of homegrown eggs in the early 1980s. Some of you may remember the obsession. I learned quite a bit about raising chickens and eating fresh organic eggs.

What is breakfast? It means literally, “breaking your nightly fast.” Unless in the wees hours, you’ve eaten too much gelato overcome with ERUPTIONS OF maple syrup.

If I eat a good breakfast, I’m stronger and can face life’s challenges that are gushing at me like a firehouse.

There are many challenges out there, and I am changing along with the world. 

“Spoiler Alert”

This blog is transforming into a full spectrum rumination of organic living through times of change. 

Today it includes breakfast.

Find the flavor of your inner chef

Being good in the kitchen can lead to other rooms of delight. Whether you are preparing meals for your family or hosting a dinner party, being able to whip up delectable dishes makes everything rich and rewarding, 

With the right tips and tricks, anyone can become a master chef in the kitchen. Mind if I spill the beans and give you some helpful hints that have made cooking a central focus of my pleasure? 

I’ll cut to the cheese: ingredients matter

Fresh organic ingredients make all the difference between an average dish and one that’s a party in your mouth. Start by sourcing fresh produce from local organic farmer’s markets and fine Natural and Organic stores. I like supporting Independent Natural Food Stores because they often have better-tasting (and higher quality) food than supermarkets. 

Always invest in good-quality spices, oils, and other cooking ingredients. Spices, oils and condiments have a shelf life, so use them within a year at the longest.

Throw caution to the wind, and don’t be shy to uncover new ingredients and exotic places through recipes. Experiment with different ingredient combinations. I love taking a basic recipe and making it mine with my fresh ingredients. Sometimes it’s a flop, and other times it’s a masterpiece. 

You can never have too much intuition when it comes to cooking, so don’t be afraid to experiment in the kitchen!

Taste food as you go along and adjust seasonings or add extra herbs and spices as necessary when you cook collard greens in a pressure cooker to insure you get the best flavors out of your dish.

Practice makes perfect

Practice is crucial for improving your cooking skills. The more you cook, the better you feel; the better you feel will raise your dough IQ. This includes understanding flavor profiles, combinations, and perfect marriages of ingredients and cooking methods. 

So don’t be discouraged if your first attempt doesn’t come out quite right; keep trying, and you will eventually get better. Document your progress as you go along to help you track your successes and failures. The Lentil Pizza experiment is on my Wurst list. 

Take your time to get your juices flowing it.

Rushing through the cooking process will only lead to a harried meal. You need to take your time and pay attention to each step of the process, from prepping ingredients to plating up the final dish. This may mean setting aside more thyme for cooking than you initially planned, but it will be worth it in the end! 

You can also take some time to relax or stretch while cooking; it will help you stay focused and ensure that your meal is perfectly cooked.

Have a good frolic; make it fun

Cooking for loved ones or just you can be a wanton time! Don’t become intimidated by complex recipes or complicated techniques; instead, focus on having a peachy excursion. Listen to some music with a beet while you cook. Invite a friend to join you in the kitchen to help whip and sip with a laugh and a nip. 

We only have so many moments in our lives, so lettuce celebrate the time we spend in the kitchen with fervor. 

Be patient; take it slow

Above all else, patience is key when it comes to becoming a better cook. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and you won’t become a master chef overnight. But with enough practice and dedication, you can improve your cooking skills and create delicious dishes that everyone will enjoy! Don’t forget to have fun and be patient while improving your cooking skills! With the right tips and tricks, anyone can become a master chef in the kitchen. 

So go ahead and get cooking today—you never know what delicious dishes you will create.

Gouda luck!
