While celebrating the Fourth of July, why not take time for some thoughtful reading.
Joel K. Bourne, Jr. The End of Plenty: The Race to Feed a Crowded World. WW Norton, 2015.
Here’s my blurb for this one:
The End of Plenty takes a thoroughly researched and exceptionally thoughtful and balanced look at the consequences of industrial farming. Joel Bourne’s courageous conclusion: to feed the world’s burgeoning population, agriculture must change and population increase must stop. His book should convince every reader of the compelling need to address world food problems through more skillful and sustainable agronomy, but also through education, especially of women, and universal family planning.
In the late June heat, scores of graduates gathered inside the imposing Granary Building behind London’s King’s Cross, home to the famed Central Saint Martins school of art and design. These bright, young jewellers, at the end of their degree courses, were present to showcase an intriguing array of jewellery designs, from those that […]
Recently, tall and gorgeous Monica Stephenson of jewelry blog iDazzle reminded me of an interview she did with me in 2010.

The produce: Summer Squash, Tomatoes, Berries, Cherries, Eggplant, Sweet Corn, Peaches
The Pantry items: A bit of everything- now is a good time to reassess and stock your pantry!
The star of the week: Sweet Corn and Tomatoes!
I think it’s safe to say that summer is in full swing. Temperatures in Sacramento have been hot (104˚ hot) and with the babe about to hit 2 months old, we’ve been planning to get out of the house more and take a few day trips around Northern California (recommendations are welcome- I’m thinking Petaluma, Santa Cruz, Napa, Yosemite, and Big Sur for starters).
Of course, travel is only a small part of why I love summer. Produce-wise, July is overflowing with goodness. Tomatoes and Sweet Corn are everywhere, berries can be picked by the bucket, and the farmers market is the place to be. Our fruit drawer is packed full of stone fruit for snacking and berries for breakfast toppings (our favorite) while nearly all our meals are cooked on the grill. It feels natural to eat well in July (even when we lived in Illinois!)
Beyond these meals, it’s also a great time to jump into canning! I’m hoping to make pickles, salsa, and some jam. If you’re not sure where to start, I have a basic guide to help you get inspired!
