In response to some of the worst economic times since the Great Depression, I’m excited to launch my “grow. cook. grub.” series. With unemployment climbing, diet-related illnesses increasing and health-care costs skyrocketing, more and more people are looking to feed themselves healthfully, simply and cheaply. Using my family and community as an example, I will show readers how easy it is to cook health-promoting, delicious and inexpensive meals all year using food from my home garden, CSA and local farmer’s markets.
