I’d love to say that my first thought after getting the evacuation notice Monday was, better grab the wheatgrass juicer… but of course I’m not that advanced yet.  And somehow I put more importance on my Dad’s paintings and the photo albums.  Go figure… All kidding aside, it was quite a week down here in southern California and we want to extend our prayers and well wishes to the individuals and families that lost so much during this ordeal.  Obviously in a crisis the safety of our loved ones and the irreplaceable items we treasure take priority but, being suddenly [...]

Well, probably not—at least not completely. But there’s no doubt that without the ability to preserve foods by drying them, the Israelites wouldn’t have lasted very long in the desert.

Sugars are concentrated in dried fruits making [...]
