Spring 2017

Who doesn’t love this time of year when the hum of lawnmowers and early morning birds replaces the metallic scrape of snow shovels. The earth is providing all the dandelions and nettles that our bodies need to cleanse away winter’s sludge. Dandelions are tough plants that contain plenty of vitamins and nutrients and are powerfullyContinue reading “Spring 2017”

Get Out (of the kitchen)

These are photos of my very sweet Grandmother, Lillian. Like many first generation Italian women she was defined by the work she did in the kitchen. She more than lived up to the measure as her hands and heart created the most delicious sauces, gnocchi, scrippelle, biscotti and pizzelles. The reason that I love theseContinue reading “Get Out (of the kitchen)”

As it turns out, there is a high demand for nutritious food and drink in Livingston, Montana and beyond. And, so, there is aContinue reading “Introducing…”

Dishing Up Soup, Hot Diggity Dogs and Kombucha with a Kick

I had the pleasure of hearing many writers recently in Missoula at the Festival of the Book. One of my favorites (aside from my darling, Marc Beaudin) was Liz Carlisle who spoke of and read from her book, Lentil Underground which chronicles the story of a group of renegade Montana farmers who were early leaders in the organic foodContinue reading “Dishing Up Soup, Hot Diggity Dogs and Kombucha with a Kick”

4th Thursdays at Wheatgrass

A few months before opening Wheatgrass Saloon, I took a trip to Denver with my teenage daughter. Thanks to an Expedia package deal, we splurged, staying at the Brown Palace Hotel. To balance out the indulgence of a fancy hotel stay, we spent most of a day enjoying the search for thrift store treasures onContinue reading “4th Thursdays at Wheatgrass”
