Ramp Up Your Pesto WIth Ramps

Getting excited about ramp season is soooo 2 years ago. But the fun thing about ramps is that they are gone before you get sick of them. Also their lightly garlicky flavor, their bright green color, and general versatility are a bonus.

If you aren't familiar with ramps, they are a type of wild leek that peek out of the ground in the spring for a very short time. They have a similar flavor to green garlic or garlic scapes so if they don't have ramps where you live, you can substitute with either of those.

How to Make the Perfect Cup of Tea

I love tea. Unless it’s really hot out, I’ll start every day with a cup of Earl Grey tea with almond milk. Since I drink so much tea, I wanted to know how to make it properly. A Google search revealed a study by researchers at the University of Northumbria.

Seafood Watch = Sustainable Choice

Informed choice. It is what matters in pretty much every purchasing situation you’ll encounter. Where did this thing I want come from? How much harm might getting it to me cause, or did it help someone or many someones along the way? Is the place from which I am purchasing a company that I feel good about giving my dollars? Is the thing itself something I need? Do I need a new one of these or would a gently used one serve me just as well?
