This is a great stew to bring to a potluck as it does not have any common allergens. It’s also vegan, but you can add a little cooked chicken for extra protein if you prefer. What started as “refrigerator stew” at our friend’s farm has become a regular staple in our fall rotation. Ingredients 2

Of course, my efforts look like what they are: the work of a dedicated beginner, and that’s OK with me. My only disappointment was in
Welcome back! After an intentional and much-needed hiatus we are finally ready to share what we’ve been up to for the past few months, most of which has overlapped with the pandemic outbreak of coronavirus in 2020. Highlights include Rick’s latest beer recipe, Melon Collie Berry, a thank-you to Trisha and Arthella, the hostesses with
