Well, it's fun, healthy, saves money and connects us intimately to our food. And, as I mentioned in my blog entry, "nothing beats the feeling of accomplishment I get from the sour-tangy taste of well-fermented food." You'll find plenty of fermentation recipes scattered across the Web, but one of the easiest and most delicious that I've found is for lacto-fermented root beer. Read on…

'Winter Solstice Vegetarian Chili' Recipe
Wednesday, 18 December 2013 00:00  |  Written by Kim Ridley | Blog Entry

I’ve been tinkering with chili recipes for years, and this winter solstice version is a real crowd pleaser.

Eco Tip

Lower your thermostat temperature in winter and raise it in summer. In winter, set your thermostat to 68 degrees or less during the day (and wear a sweater) and 55 degrees or less at night (and add an extra blanket). Wear less or use a fan instead of air-conditioning on all but the hottest summer days. When you must use air-conditioning, set your thermostat to 78 degrees or more.  More tips...
