The New Home Economics

Happy Birthday NHE!

2 Comments

I just realized I’ve been writing this blog for two whole years now!  In case you haven’t been reading this since the beginning, this blog was inspired by a project that I did with some other people who are a lot smarter than I am, The New Liberal ArtsCheck it out!  A great, thought-provoking little read.

Just for fun, here are my top posts of all time:
Recipe: fermented salsa
Recipe: Easy, no-knead whole wheat bread
Cooking with lard
Welcome (my first post!)
Buyer-beware: ultra-pasteurized milk

Shoot, those are all food-related posts.  My personal favorite posts are all garden-related.  Anyway, thanks for reading!  Any requests?  More recipes?  Less gardening?  (Fat chance, if so!)

  1. I would actually like to see a “gardening for complete dummies” section sometime! For someone who has no idea how to even begin…….that would rock! Maybe a few “dummy” articles once in awhile, cooking, bike-commuting, gardening, just not as far along as you!!!!!! Thanks for the awesome blog!

  2. Happy birthday NHE! I’ve told you this before, but your blog has been a compass for me as I try to figure out how to live in a more healthy and sustainable way. My favorite content is recipes, book reviews and theory, and alternative cleaning & personal care tips. My gardening experience is limited to an unsuccessful container garden on my balcony (http://katiemaesfoodblog.blogspot.com/2010/09/garden-harvest.html), so I don’t really relate to that.

    And as a side note, I looked at the list of collaborators for the New Liberal Arts book and was surprised to find I know several of them! Matt Penniman and I run into each other frequently in the Lansing nonprofit world, Diana Kimball and I went to high school together, Gavin Craig was one of my college advisors, and I met Robin Sloan at a speaking engagement (his, not mine). Weird. If y’all are reading, hi!
