Recipe: Chocolate Bourbon Bread Pudding

I cannot tell you how much I love bread pudding. For me, the traditional version brings together some of my favorite, comforting elements: bready carbs, light sweetness, heady creaminess.

We’d heard many, many warnings against driving in Ecuador: the local drivers were insane; the roads were in terrible shape; accurate highway maps did not exist; and, pedestrians – human and four-footed alike – had a habit of walking the center […]

Sustainability – Does It Matter?

I have been trying to figure out what to write next for quite some time. I like sharing our travel stories and information we’ve learned about farming, sustainability, permaculture and food. No, actually, I love it – especially when readers respond with wonder, advice and gratitude. It makes me hopeful; like we are actually doing something meaningful and […]
