It's been a crazy couple weeks back from vacation. Life is normally a blur, but it hit warp speed. I would guess the big news around this kitchen is that our book is now out and we're doing some of the PR work for it — along with the busy day job, of course. The link above was a new experience for me, I spent 45 minutes on live radio, taking calls from parents. They had some great tips, recipes and insights so give it a listen. Sorry about my voice.
Congrats to _vtg_ as you were the only comment for the last book giveaway, you will get all three. Cool, huh? Leave me your snail mail address at farmerfare [at] gmail [dot] com.
