This month I thought I would add some book recommendations to our reading list. Our entire family loves to read. When my girls wanted to stay up later as kids, they knew all they had to do was beg me to read them another story! Reading has always been my soft spot! Having a ranch, large vegetable garden, and orchard means most of my reading occurs during the slower winter months. So with May already well upon us, I am reaching the end of my reading season. (I still manage to get a few books read even during the summer!) Here are some I have recently enjoyed:


Real Food, Fake Food by Larry Olmsted 

Warning, this book will change the way you look at food. Our family now only buys olive oil that is extra virgin and has a PDO seal. You may never want to eat parmesan cheese out of a can again!​

Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon

This is primarily a recipe book, but also contains the author’s opinions on our food culture, or lack thereof, and traditional food cultures around the world...
