Who I Want to See at the PMA Fresh Summit

Fresh Summit PMA 2014

I’m getting up early tomorrow morning to drive up to the Fresh Summit Convention in Anaheim to blog my little heart out. This event is the epic gathering of produce growers both local and international. As a blogger, I’ll be looking for creative, unusual and delicious ideas and I’m sure there will be no shortage. I’ve already decided to stop eating until tomorrow, because I have a feeling that my stomach will be working overtime. Read more about Who I Want to See at the PMA Fresh Summit

Parsnip & Horseradish: This one blew my mind!

How to tell the difference between a parsnip and horseradish?

I found some really big parsnips and as it’s Fall, I decided now is the time to play with this root vegetable. I saw a recipe for baked parsnip fries and this huge specimen was going to be perfect for experimentation. I took off the skin with my peeler and started to chop it up into chunks. It was firmer than usual and a little woody. Shoot..did I buy an old parsnip? Read more about Parsnip & Horseradish: This one blew my mind!

Cute Fruit Alert! Kiwi Berries!

Kiwi Berries - Cute Fruit Alert!

Look what I found in the berry section today at Sprouts! Kiwi Berries! I have never seen these cuties before and was super excited to get some home because I love kiwis. These ‘berries’ are about the size of an olive and have smooth non-fuzzy skins like a grape. However, the picture on the box indicated that it looks like a real kiwi fruit inside. I don’t think I’ve ever had this much excitement in the produce aisle. I may or may not have made a scene by squealing. Anyway... Read more about Cute Fruit Alert! Kiwi Berries!

Spicy Tomato Jam

I’ve been reading about Tomato Jam in all my favorite Southern foodie magazines so I finally decided to bust out my canning supplies and do this before all the good late-summer tomatoes are gone.

It’s really important to use quality tomatoes in this recipe. Hot house tomatoes will result in something that looks like tomato jam, but tastes like spices. Read more about Spicy Tomato Jam

The Makeup Eraser Meets Handee

Makeup Eraser Review

I love make-up and must have at least a little mascara on when I leave the house! I have a huge assortment of facial cleansers, toners and scrubs, but they are intended for adding balance to my skin type - not necessarily removing make-up. In fact, I can use one of my hoity toity skin cleansers and still be left with streaks of eye makeup running down my face. I have used standard make-up remover creams, liquids and wipes. They often make my face and eye area feel either dried out, or worse - greasy. Read more about The Makeup Eraser Meets Handee
