  • I was a Scout many years ago and my troup was sponsored by the Scouts. We paid dues and had fundraisers and worked hard to go to Scouting events around the country. I learned a lot about being a good, productive person and I have to say, nobody EVER asked if I was gay. And nobody cared. And I am gay now and certainly was then.

    I have to say, I leave my lights up and light some of them until Valentine’s day. I don’t have them looking like Christmas trees or anything, but I find them festive in the dark part of winter.

Then they’ll be off as spring seems right around the corner (I can pretend).

    Kale and collards are often sauteed, but if you think they are a little bitter, try boiling them in salted water, draining them and reheating with olive oil adding lemon right before service.

    Totally agree. We grew parsnips in our garden when I was growing up and they have been a prized root vegetable ever since. My favorite way to prepare them…..caramelized in bacon fat served with the crumbled crisp bacon.

The broth warms them nicely.

    Great article! I am a huge fan of kale, especially because of the long harvest period. It isn’t unusual here in Michigan to go out to the garden and find some kale under the snow in February or March. We grow several kinds (I’m partial to dinosaur kale) throughout our flower gardens and the deer [...]
