About the Rambler



Welcome to my ramblings on dinner & drink, people & places, our planet’s health & the future of food. I’m a journalist, author and media trainer. My kitchen forever smells of garlic and curry. And much like my mother, I start thinking of dinner long before breakfast….

Lady Godiva….

… lives on our neighbors’ farm and she looks like THIS:

C'mon, she's a squash...

It was her first appearance of the season. And as if that weren’t enough, we split her open to taste her hulless seeds:

Lookee the seeds...

Surprisingly sweet and tasty they are, fresh and fruit-like. But Farmer Jon says her flesh is bitter. Hmm…

Yes, this is the kind of food we grow down here in the deserts of Nuevo Mexico. ¡Aye Carumba!

  • Ooooh, you’re having adventures without me! We’ll exchange stories upon my return. Just took a nighttime trek through the cloud forest…. saw a few kissing bugs among other creatures.

    Hmm, it’s a bit early to harvest winter squash. Maybe it needs to stay on the vine longer to develop sugars. Or, you could try salting the flesh to leach out the bitterness.
