adult picky eaters

There was an interesting article in the WSJ this morning about adult picky eaters. Please check it out! Picky eating is one of the most common issues I help families with. As you see here, some kids don’t outgrow their picky eating. If you are concerned, read a book, get some help. (Child of Mine, or Secrets to Feeding a Healthy Family, both by Ellyn Satter.)

Its a little extra work at times, but has a lot of benefits. You can display and protect handed-down recipes. See Grandma’s lemon loaf in her handwriting. You...

I used to pull a jar of salsa out of the fridge and wonder when I opened it. Was it a week or three months ago? I ended up with two problems: 1) I had things in my fridge that were WELL past fresh.

Now I know oil stays fresh longer in the fridge, but that was embarrassing.) 2) I threw out things that were probably fine, but couldn’t remember exactly how long they were in the fridge. SOLUTION?
