My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

What I do with my Blendtec!

What I made today from my produce that I picked up this past Thursday:

The "Liquid" Brownie a Chocolate smoothie recipe ( I adapted it from here)

3 Heaping Tablespoons Raw Cacao Powder
3 Tablespoons Hemp seed (learn more here)
1 Avocado
3 medium bananas ( I used some from my harvest)
2 T agave
3 cups ice and fill with water to the 32 ounce mark
1 tsp Cinnamon

John, Scott, and William LIKED this!


I made Salsa and Chips from Green Smoothie Girl Video. I put in a wee bit of green pepper because I really don't like pepper and it was just the right amount. John and Scott liked this!

I used my Blendtec twice today which is fairly typical.

My squash and broccoli went into a not-as-healthy recipe. This is an old recipe that my mother would make and I used to eat the whole casserole, well almost. I probably made it healthier this past Thursday than I did years ago, yet I definitely felt heavy eating it and probably won't make it for myself for a long time. David loved this one and he called it picnic food. Not sure how he came up with that name, but is sentimental and appropriate because it was a July 4th picnic casserole in the old days.

Mom's Zucchini Casserole

4-5 cups cooked Zucchini ( I lightly steamed squash and broccoli)
3 eggs
1 cup mayo ( I have not had mayo in 2 years and do not miss it).
1 cup Parmesan ( I used Romano because I had it)
2 T parsley ( I had dried parsley from a previous share)
1 large onion
(and I put crushed garlic in)
1/3 stick butter ( I did not use this)
1/2 bread crumbs (I save crumbs from my whole grain bread left overs)

I greased pan with olive oil, mixed the first 6 ingredients, I did not dot with butter, topped with bread crumbs and a little more Romano. Baked at 350 degrees, ~ 45 minutes.

I am loving all the fresh summer fruit! Especially after this heavy casserole.

We got: yellow squash, broccoli, purple colossal garlic, green kale, leeks, red leaf lettuce, green pepper, sweet potato, roma tomato, carrots, fennel, cantaloupe, banana, green seedless grapes, kiwi and yellow nectarine. Fruit share: gold kiwi, mini red seedless grapes and blueberry. Extras corn and nectarines.
