Taking Candy from Strangers

We’re taught as kids to distrust the stranger, to be skeptical of help that comes from the unknown, and of help that comes without expectation of return.  We begin to assume that if someone helps us, then they must want something back. And yet on this trip, I’ve learned to trust in the stranger and […]

Golden Dressing

This dressing is so good you might just find youself drinking it. And why not, when it’s packed with B vitamins, amino acids, and healthy oils?  This recipe is adapted from the  Hollyhock cookbooks. It’s an easy recipe to whip up and double (or quadruple, so you have enough to pour yourself a glass!). Just […]

She would handwrite her recipes and “chuckles” each week and send them to the paper – and deciphering and typing up Annabelle’s cursive for copy was one of my first jobs as a teenager in […]

Building a Fresh Start

Thirty minutes outside of Madison, a hard working crew is building a new Dane County park. They’re building trails through the woods, clearing honeysuckle, buckthorn and other invasive species to make gently sloping paths overlooking the lake. They’re clearing garbage and old farm machinery from the woods. They’re planting cover crops and the seeds to […]
