Taste of Nature Summer Tasting Party!

Taste of Nature Tasting Party | @VeggieConverter #RealTastesGood #CleverGirls

It's summertime, so it's party time! And, thanks to Taste of Nature, we had a fun outdoor party planned with games and delicious Taste of Nature bars in six flavors: Brazilian Nut Festival, California Almond Valley, Quebec Cranberry Carnival, Canadian Maple Forest, Himalayan Goji Summit and Persian Pomegranate Garden.

Mine is general in the lower back area and is rarely debilitating but always irritating. I … [Read More...]

Sweet and Sour Summer Squash Pickles

Summer Squash Pickles | @VeggieConverter refrigerator pickles

You may remember how much Bug LOVES cucumbers. Well, this week, we had a large summer squash in our farm share box. And he kids and I aren't huge fans of summer squash in general. Mr. Meaty can take it or leave it. So, after taking a taste of fresh squash (you never know how much more delicious a farm fresh veggie will be, after all), we decided to make a new version of one of our favorites. We used our Chinese Sweet and Sour Cucumbers recipe to craft some tasty refrigerator summer squash … [Read More...]
