I love recipes, home cooking and eating local, fresh food. I'm on a recent kick to make my own products so I can save money and reduce the waste that comes from packaging. I am a freelance writer and editor and I love thrift stores, rummage sales, Mexican folk art and public radio. I love listening to The Splendid Table. My favorite cookbooks to use are Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything, The Joy of Cooking and anything by Mollie Katzen. My favorite cookbooks authors to read are Miriam Ungerer (Good Cheap Food) and John Thorne (Simple Cooking, Outlaw Cook). I cannot stand mustard, mayonnaise, ketchup, hard-boiled eggs, or canned tuna. Come say hello to me at Secondhand Nation, my blog about re-use and green living: http://www.secondhandnation.com
