See me on Evening Magazine!

Filed under Leftovers, Videos

I had the chance to film a segment called “Cheap Eats Tacoma” with Saint Bryan on our local nightly news magazine, Evening Magazine.

It was so much fun to be a part of, and I’m thankful for the opportunity.

Saint and I went to some of my favorite local eateries.

Learn More about Me in Terra Organics’ Member Spotlight!

Filed under Leftovers

This week, I was thrilled to be featured as Terra Organics‘ first Member Spotlight.

Terra Organics is the home produce delivery service in my area that I get 95 percent of my organic fruits, vegetables and eggs from.

Produce delivery is one of my godsends for time saving. During the work week, I don’t even have to think about picking up fresh produce, because it’s delivered to my door each week. It also actually saves me money, since I’m not spending money on impulse buys from copious trips to the grocery store. We are able to eat healthier, eat local, and eat organic with virtually no effort. It’s a fabulous service that I am so thankful for. Read More »

I work in a family business myself, and I know the joys and challenges of working with family.  It seems to me that the ladies of Lynnae’s Gourmet Pickles have got it figured out and are producing a mighty fine pickle, one jar at a time.

I have a confession.  I lead a double life.  A Big Mouthful is my food blog  mainly focused on recipes.  And then there’s Tacoma Foodie, a Twitter and Facebook I maintain to fulfill my local food and restaurant fix.  This is how I found about Lynnae’s Gourmet Pickles, and I thought I’d share it with you, O’ Big Mouthful reader.

Ever gotten the itch to pickle?

If so, this is the time of year to do it.  Cucumbers are now at your local market or farm stand, just waiting to be transformed into crunchy, sour and herby pickles.

I have never pickled before.  That is, until last weekend. Read More »
