I’m pleased to announce that I’m now a regular blogger for FRESH, a 2009 documentary film about the people and ideas transforming America’s food system. I’ll be sharing my take on sustainable food issues on their blog a couple of days each week.

My first post, on “do-it-yourself” cooking projects, came out on Monday.

I’d love to hear your ideas and suggestions for blog topics! Do you have any questions you want answers to, or thoughts bouncing around in your head that I could bounce around on paper? Leave them here as comments or e-mail me at

I’ll be doing my best to keep on track with this blog as well (better than I’ve been doing lately, I hope!). Please bear with me as I get accustomed to this new, more intense routine.


As the November weather turns chilly and the perennial discussion arises about what ingenious new strategies have been devised to keep any part of the turkey from drying out in the oven, my mouth begins to water for lefse. My grandmother has been preparing these Scandinavian potato crepes for more than 40 years, and for me there can be no Thanksgiving without them. That’s why I’m trying to pick up the art and science of lefse preparation with Grandma in her own kitchen.

I’ll have to wait until Christmas to devour my share this year, but you can be sure I’m savoring their sweet flavor and warming aroma in my mind even now. Check out my description of last year’s lesson on the Smithsonian food blog, Food & Think.
