What is it about the Amish life that’s always drawn me? Perhaps it’s the throwback to simpler times in the way they eschew modern technology in their homes, the romantic scenes along a country road of horse-drawn buggies and one-room schoolhouses, the traditional form of dress or the charming Pennsylvania Dutch accents. It feels like […]

Camping. Climbing. Kayaking. Biking. None of these adventures feel right in a minivan to me… heck, not even a road trip feels sexy in a minivan. I’ve always associated minivans with soccer moms and suburban families, so when Kia offered up their Sedona MPV (that’s Multi-Purpose Vehicle, not minivan, mind you) for The CSA Cookbook […]

I almost can’t believe that we’re over 5 weeks and nearly 10,000 miles in to The CSA Cookbook Road Trip (by the time you read this, we will have hit that 10,000-mile mark on the Lost Coast of California). When Will and I first set out on this adventure in May, we weren’t sure how […]

(Chatting with a passionate group of edible gardeners and urban homesteaders at cluck! urban farm supply in Providence, Rhode Island.) This post is bittersweet for me. It’s the last leg of The CSA Cookbook Road Trip, but marks a drive I’ve always wanted to do since moving to California — Highway 101 down the coast […]
