Don't Be Afraid of the Dork

Covered in dog hair, Obsessed with books, Wondering what it's all about. I suspect the answer is ice cream and the ocean.

The Feast Nearby: How I lost my job, buried a marriage, and found my way by keeping chickens, foraging, preserving, bartering, and eating locally (all on $40 a week) - Robin Mather This book is a collection of essays and recipes with an emphasis on local eating within a budget. It's organized by season featuring the fruits and vegetables of the time. She describes a number of techniques for preserving and preparing - the recipes are practical and simple with a touch of gourmet. I liked the recipes enough that I ended up buying the book on kindle.
