Late Summer Harvest Soup

Roasted poblanos, tomatoes, corn, black beans and tomatillos all vying for the spotlight

So in the spirit of sharing I’ve decided to try something new.  I want this little space on the giant interweb to be more than just for me.  I want YOU to feel like it’s your space, too.

What does that mean?

It means, you get to have more of an impact on what you see here.  Here’s how you can do that:

  • Write to me.  Ask questions about cooking, canning, preserving or gardening.  Or, maybe you want to know more about Columbus, being newly married, travel, Iceland, making a space your home, nursing, kids or living in a 150 year-old house.  Tell me what you wanna know.
  • Write for the blog.  By no means do I intend to keep the writing all to myself.  If you’re interested in writing a guest post, sharing a recipe, a recent trip or whatever inspires you to write or photograph, just say so.
  • Make requests. Tell me what your garden (or neighbor’s garden) is growing in overabundant amounts that you need recipes for.  Or, what’s something you’ve always wanted to make, but didn’t know how, were intimidated by or just want advice of someone who’s made it before?
  • Tell me what you like and what you don’t.  Some people love, step-by-step, detailed directions and photos showing the entire cooking process.  Other people get super annoyed by that.  More photography or less?  Leave comments in these posts, use the contact form, tweet me or put up a post or a message on the Facebook page, just let me know your thoughts.

Okay, enough from me.  It’s your turn.

What do you want?
