EcoFem Links – December 2018

Finally tried my hand at making homemade graham crackers from Karen Solomon’s cookbook Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It – it was incredibly easy! I’d always wanted to try these because the storebought ones are usually so dry and these were definitely perfection! I made them a bit thick as you can see so they’re more like a ginger-less gingersnap…

EcoFem Links – November 2018

While the world seems to have lost it’s damn mind in so many ways, this past week there were some things worth celebrating, and it all began with the color BLUE! And along with Democrats regaining the majority in the House of representatives, the number of women in the House in 2019 will have grown from 19% to 23%, including…

EcoFem Links (formerly Eco-licious)

It’s been in the low 70’s all week so I had to switch gears from the umpteen house remodeling projects we’re working on to the outdoors where I swear, I PROMISE that there will be a huge-ass garden in 2019. One of the major decisions was figuring out how big to make it, whether to enclose it, and how to…

Yes it’s been a while, but – not so shockingly – I still have opinions to share and stuff I’m reading that I figure are important enough to mention every once in a while! There’s some serious shit going on in the world as we all know that no “thoughts and prayers” are going to change. And by the way,…

I know this is a horse property we bought but this scary golden-eyed horse “window” outside on the patio is going to have to find a new home… I’m back for some calling out of stuff that I think needs calling out, woo hoo! Fuck civility. “Are we really to believe that the same people who voted for a man…

Continuing my walk down memory lane, I remember my very first DIY trellis, made from the branches of a holly tree cut down in my yard, jammed into the ground and attached with household string. Sure enough it worked, and sure enough, I realized at the time that THIS many green beans weren’t my jam. I’ve evolved since then on…

I cannot WAIT to tear this kitchen up! Nice shape but those upper cabinets are coming out, those ugly-arse countertops are going, and black & vanilla appliances? Um bub-bye… Life gets better as you get on in years? Yes please, I’ll take it! Europe again leading the way with environmental protection, while a dipshit in our community’s Nextdoor page bitch…

So much going on in my brain right now! One piece of it all (beyond all of the logistics like paperwork, inspections, getting our house on the market this week and, of course, the financials) that we’re obsessing over is figuring out where the ducks, bees, clothesline and garden will be. While we’re not going to be planting anything, our…

Impatient for our house to come up, but loving watching our late spring flowers give us their final show… here are some things I’ve been reading I thought I’d share (and of course, something to boogie to at the end…): Life better once I hit 50, they claim? Six years to go, I’ll tell you if that’s true when I…

Eco-licious: the Danny Seo Rocks edition

Last week on Earth Day, as some may have noticed, I was a bit distracted with the significance of the day in less Earthy ways, so today I want to dedicate my Eco-licious post to one of my favorite magazines, Naturally, Danny Seo. Their tagline is “where style meets sustainability” and is FINALLY filling the long lonely void where my…
