Introduction Rick and I are the "grown" part of the Homegrown String Band, which also includes our daughters Erica and Annalee. When we were first starting out in 1997 we wanted a catchy name. Rick wanted to name the band Rooster Rick and the Cacklin' Hens. As you can guess, he was voted down and we became the Homegrown String Band. Unfortunately, my laugh does sound like a cackle, so the name was probably appropriate. As musicians, money is always tight so I'm always looking for yummy recipes on a shoestring budget. As Quakers, I attribute the lack of money to an adherence to the testimony of simplicity. There are times, though, when I feel like it is leaning more toward involuntary simplicity, rather than voluntary simplicity. Then I take a deep breath and cook.
