“Getting Laid helped me to find my “inner farm girl” I am trying many of her recipes and my family is very grateful that I now have dozens of ways to cook eggs and not just my old go-to scramble. This is a book I will keep and use for decades as author Barb Webb espouses exactly how I want to live- healthier, happier and as far away as possible for GMO monoculture. Bravo Barb Webb!”
–Louise Baxter Harmon, author of Happiness A to Z

Sustainable living boasts no boundaries. You don’t need massive amounts of acreage or even a fenced-in backyard. We may not be 100 percent sustainable in our lifestyle, but we can become better in-tune with our environment and conscientious of our actions. Like all aspects of life, it’s about balance, finding ways to live a greener, cleaner life within the parameters of your current lifestyle.
Top blogger for country living, Rural Mom, shows us the (actually very easy) way to live a sustainable lifestyle without making ourselves crazy in the process.

Why does even Jennifer Aniston raise chickens in the Hollywood Hills?

Easy answer, it is extremely cool to raise you own hens. Eat the organic eggs and lie back on feather beds from your own brood.

And what about you? Author Barb Webb believes there’s a farm girl in all of us and she helps you find yours!

Available internationally at a all major booksellers and online retailers including Amazon

“This is the best farm to table book I have ever seen and I think it helps that Barb Webb lives on an actual farm. Clearly, she knows what she is talking about and has put together not just a book of how to grow your food and cook it very creatively, but really this is a guide to the good life.”
–Reeda Josephs, author of Girlfriends Are Lifesavers

Make Food While the Sun Shines | Solar Cooking

Interested in solar cooking?  Want to know how to make a quick and easy solar cooker?  Stop by to read my lastest article on Fix.com

 If you’ve ever stepped barefoot onto blacktop on a sweltering summer day, you’re probably already painfully familiar with the extraordinary heating power of the sun. Harnessing this free energy is the crux of solar cooking – a fast, renewable, pollution-free method of food preparation. Solar cooking has long been on the agenda of ideal sustainable living practices, but with new innovations and dwindling natural resources, there’s hope to have a fully powered solar eating future ahead. -Barb Webb

Back to our Irish Roots on Epicurious Community Table

Tickled to be featured on the Epicurious Community Table today as part of the “Personal Touches in the Kitchen” series.  Stop by to learn about my food story and be sure to share your own!

Out of the Kitchen and Back to My Irish Roots! #epicurious #outofthekitchen –

 

Born under the earth sign Taurus, I arrived in this world ready to start digging and planting. My love of gardening, nature and craftsmanship was further nurtured by a long lineage of homemakers, masonry workers and farmers. You could say, perhaps, I was born with a silver garden spade!

My natural propensity for tending to the garden easily translated into the kitchen with all of my culinary efforts. But despite the fresh herbs and produce I regularly enjoyed, I didn’t quite make the full connection of our food story until I journeyed back to discover more about my heritage in Ireland.

Thinking About Selling Eggs?

Selling Eggs ArticleMy interest in sustainable living and my love of raising chickens naturally led me into the egg-selling business. As my brood grew, I found I had far too many eggs for our family and began to give them away to many of our neighbors. Word spread and before I knew what was happening, people started showing up at our farm asking to buy some of those lovely, fresh brown eggs we had.

I recently shared my experience with the Penny Pincher.  You’ll find my tips and those from Dana Kee, owner of Moose Manor Farms at http://www.thepennyhoarder.com/egg-farming/

Have tips to contribute?  Be sure to share them in the comments section!  I’d love to hear about your egg-selling experiences!
