Introduction I'm a passionate domestic cook, forager and amateur veggie grower with an insatiable hunger to learn and share as much as possible about food and cookery. I believe that we owe it to our kids to feed them well and teach them to cook for themselves and that if we are going to eat animals, we should treat them with the respect they deserve before they give their lives so that ours can be tastier. Most of the pictures of my food are taken on my iPhone seconds before we eat dinner, so I apologize for the dire quality. I love comments and ideas, so please leave yours! xox -Emily

How do you pronounce the 'g' in bologna?

You don't. the GN is pronounced like NY (obviously?) Like Bolonya. Makes ordering things like gnocchi fun in restaurants
