Blog Update!
For those of you not following me on Facebook, as of the Summer of 2019 I've moved to Central WA, to a tiny mountain town of less than 1,000 people.

I will be covering my exploits here in the Cascades, as I try to further reduce my impact on the environment. With the same attitude, just at a higher altitude!

Crunchy Chicken Cooks!

Hello all,

I've decided to start up a new blog and I wanted to invite you to come check it out.

Crunchy Chicken Cooks will be comprised of recipes that focus on seasonally inspired, local and organic foods.

Millions of peaches, peaches for meSince most of the recipes will have some history behind it, whether it be ingredients originating from my garden or something I picked up at a farmer's market, I'll be posting a short description of the new recipe on this blog with a link to the recipe so you can check it out if you are interested.

The first recipe posting is a result of the jam canning jamboree from over the weekend. I made several different flavors of peach jam and was so excited, I wanted to share them with you. I found some delightful organic peaches originating from an orchard down by the Wenatchee River and went to work. There are three recipes in this posting:
  • Cognac Vanilla Peach Preserves
  • Cacao Peach Preserves
  • Ginger Peach Preserves
I'll still be working just as hard as ever on this blog, but since I talk so much about the food I'm growing and cooking, this is a great outlet to share exactly what I'm doing.

I hope you enjoy!

[Stay tuned for Part 3 of my Back to the Basics series tomorrow!]

Cool! I'm always looking for recipe ideas and ways to preserve or prepare what's fresh now, so I'm excited to see your recipe posts!

I think this will be a great resource - sometimes you get tired of your own tried & trues, you know?

I love it! I just joined a CSA today so I'll definitely look to you as a resource of what to do with that stuff!
