  • It’s good to know that after a decade in the restaurant business I can still be surprised by food.

    On a recent trip to Florida to attend a cousin’s wedding, I was treated to some very authentic Indian cuisine. The flavors these foods brought to the table were both unique and delicious, so when I returned home I wanted to recreate what I had just discovered.

  • It is still not too late to get in your fall soil samples for next year’s growing season, and the recent rains make it an excellent time to collect samples.

    An interesting result of the dry weather conditions this past summer is that we may see lower soil pH and potassium levels in fall soil samples. 

    Measuring the accurate levels of pH and potassium in soil after harvest will provide the proper amount of potassium fertilizer and lime needed in the spring to supplement the soil’s nutrients to provide suitable growing conditions.

  • At the It’s About You! Diabetes Support Group November meeting Thursday, Nov. 15, the program will focus on healthy holiday foods.

    A presentation will be given on healthier traditional holiday foods for people with diabetes. We will discuss how favorite recipes can be adapted, and several recipes will be shared.

    People with diabetes often have a difficult time over any holiday, especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas, as many of the traditional foods eaten are high in fat, sugar, carbohydrates and sodium – not the best foods to regularly eat.
