While visiting a close relative, I was astonished to see one of the numerous milk alternative products inside his refrigerator. I avoided jumping to conclusions – after all, they say it’s hardest to educate those closest to you.

Valentine's Day for a farm wife can be unpredictable for some, very predictable for others and a complete unintended oversight for too many.

Resolutions abound this time of year. In 2014, 38 percent of Americans[http://www.statisticbrain.com/new-years-resolution-statistics/] made a New Year’s resolution, with weight loss holding the top spot for self-improvement. Unfortunately, only 8 percent achieved their resolutions. Why? Ambitious weight loss goals are hard to attain unless you have smaller, clearer objectives laid out. And I have just the smaller, clearer... continue reading

I love the holidays beginning with Thanksgiving all the way to the New Year! It’s a special time to spend with family and friends and to eat foods that are also special to this season. It’s possible to gain about 5 pounds - one pound for every week. That is IF you eat a little... continue reading

As a child with a birthday near Thanksgiving, I distinctly remember one year when my Mom bought me the most colorful birthday cake in the shape of a turkey for my birthday party.  It had the tail feathers fanned out like a peacock in a colorful array of fall colors all done in buttercream icing. ... continue reading

Pasteurization is a pretty big deal. I, for one, appreciate this process as well as its discoverer, Louis Pasteur. December 27 is his birthday, 192 years later. Food safety is something that most Americans take for granted. As a Family and Consumer Science educator, I dabbled in food safety in college and grad school some,... continue reading

“Brain breaks” – the latest craze in schools for helping students increase their physical activity minutes. What’s a brain break, you might ask? It’s exactly as it sounds, a break for the brain!
