We’ve been huge fans of Mark Bittman’s The Minimalist for years; we’ll be sad to see it go, but are excited for Bittman’s new blog and its purported focus on food in relation to the environment and politics.
Hi! My name is Christine and I would love it if you check out my blog. It's about looking fun and fabulous on a budget =)
PS - I also have a photo blog with pics I've taken - http://cfphotoreblog.tumblr.com
Hope you like!
Loved your post on holiday leftovers! I wrote a similar post over the Thanksgiving Holidays if you are just dying for more ways to get the most of family "making way too much food" dinners.
Thanks for sharing! That turkey hash looks really good - love the ratio of veggies to meat and the inclusion of ‘offal’ with the turkey livers.
We’re up for nomination in the following categories:
Best Home Chef in a Series
Best Male Host in a Series (Max, even though he’s been on hiatus since Season 1. Still love him, though!)
Best Female Host in a Series
And you can also vote for the stellar documentary Kings of Pastry in the Best Film or Documentary category. It’s an amazing film about France’s elite pastry chefs and it’s by world-renowned documentary team DA Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus. I was the associate producer on the film and it was a really fun and educational experience that resulted in a fantastic and mouth-watering film.
Do you compost your fruit and veggie scraps? If so, do you also compost coffee grounds, and can you give advice on how to do that? I mostly am I curious about separating the grounds from the used filter.
Yes - I do compost coffee grounds, apparently it’s really good for the compost as it helps break down the foods and enrich the compost. Here are a couple of filter suggestions:
Switch to a gold filter - they’re surprisingly affordable, reusable and washable, saves you money in the long run and better for the environment
Or, use unbleached paper filters, which are compostable, too, and good for the compost as well (although I’d say that you probably can’t compost them all - too much fiber and the compost won’t break down)
Leave your grinds-filled filter out overnight so the grinds and filter dry. The next day, you should be able to dump your grinds into your compost bin and dispose of the filter without a mess.
Hope that helps! Feel free to let me know what you do and how it works out.
