Counting Cookies

Ginger's Grocery

“Who ate all the cookies!”

My eleven year old slams the cabinet door. It springs back open in response to the force.

“There are still some cookies left,” I say.

“There is one cookie left. A broken one.”


“There were eight cookies left after dinner last night,” she says. She reviews the facts like a seasoned prosecutor. “William says he only ate one. Dad didn’t eat any, and I didn’t eat any, either. That means that someone ate five cookies between last night and right now.”

Implication: That someone is you, mom.

“I don’t want to talk about it,” I say. “I bring all the food in this house. I earn the money that buys it. I shop for it, I put it into the cabinet, and if I want to eat every last thing under our roof, that is what I will do.” And sometimes that is…

The 5 Vegetarian Meals You’ll See at Weddings — Wedding Woes

Round Two

As a vegetarian, I’m fully ready to admit that my least favorite part of most every wedding I’ve been to is the food. While there have been a few memorable exceptions (and I freely acknowledge how ungrateful I sound), most of the vegetarian options I’ve had have been lackluster or obviously put together as an afterthought.

In the end, it doesn’t matter that much because eating cake, dancing, and celebrating with friends and family are more important. But it does always make me a little sad to compare what’s on my plate with the rest of my tablemates when the meal is served. The vegetarian option usually falls into one of these five categories.

The Southern Locavore

Jill Dutton | Travel Journalist

While the term “eating local” is a buzz term these days, I’ve found in my travels that it has different expressions in various areas of the U.S. So during my trip south, in each city I’ll take readers step-by-step through a journey of eating local. From a visit to the farmers’ market, a farm-to-table restaurant and interviews with farmers and chefs (plus info on CSAs, farm-to-table restaurants and farmers’ markets in the area), the articles will explore all the flavors unique to each city–and what it means to eat locally in the south.

Please join me on this journey by following my Wanderlust blog, commenting below, or by tweeting or sharing this post. Then follow along as we explore four southern states by rail–and discover the southern locavore.
