I love the Italian Good Seasons salad dressing, it really is the best! It’s a great way to create some tasty dressings that your family will love. If you have your own garden or are lucky enough to have a friend who ‘gifts’ you with fresh produce (like I do!) – you’ll find these dressings enhance the flavors of them.
It’s summer, you're hot; you want a cocktail but…you’re watching your weight. What’s a girl to do? Well you could whip up a pitcher of the limited-edition Crystal Light Mocktails. Or better yet you could make some Mocktail Pops for an even cooler treat.
Out of all the things I learned about cattlemen, ranches, and feedyards, the thing that made the most impact on me over those two days was how much of a family affair this industry really is.
Anyone who has read my blog on a regular basis knows that I love ice cream. In a bowl, cone, on a stick you name it I’ll eat it. Any flavor , single, mixed (except Tiger Tiger…) I’ll try it and usually like it. Low fat, high fat, premium, sorbet…I’m just an ice cream lover.
As much as I have tried, I have a hard time getting my family to eat vegetables. Maybe it’s because of the color, some of them I’m sure it’s because of the taste or maybe it’s just some anomaly that I have no control over. I try and ‘dress’ them up as much as I can, with sauces and spices.
About a week and a half ago, I shared with you my Mt. Rushmore Sandwich that will be featured as a part of Kraft Food’s Sandwich Road Trip across America. As part of that I was also able to host a contest for a $100 Amex Gift Card for a reader who entered their favorite sandwich recipe. After moderating and verifying the 413 legitimate entries the winner is . . .
I know that’s what some of you have been thinking when you’ve been reading my On the Ranch posts, I have had some correspondence to that effect anyway. You may believe I was fed a bunch of crap from the industry and am just regurgitating it.
I’m no expert, but my guess is, when questions arise about beef safety, especially when asking moms, growth hormones are probably one of the biggest concerns out there. That was my biggest question before going ‘On the Ranch’. How does the use of growth hormones in cattle (or any agriculture animal we consume
I think there is a common misconception that feedyards are like over crowded classrooms. That the cattle are tripping over each other and that they have no room to (dare I be punny?...) moo-ve.
The average American today is at least two generations removed from agriculture. That describes me pretty well. My grandparents had a small honey bee operation, and five years ago my sister married into a crop farming family, but other than that, I have no direct exposure to agriculture of any form. That means that most of what I know
It’s kind of shallow, but I’ll admit one of my favorite parts of summer is partaking in s’mores!
My best friend puts on a great 4th of July shindig, and the highlight of the evening for me isn’t the fireworks but rather…the s’mores! And when we were choosing excursions for our Alaskan cruise, I was almost swayed to take one of them simply because it included a part where you get to make s’mores around a campfire (sad I know…)
Farmers and ranchers consider themselves the original environmentalists. Their livelihood depends on the long-term health of their land and natural resources. Identifying and using practices that preserve and use these resources responsibly is a necessity for the long term sustainability of the beef industry.
“Take a Sandwich Road Trip with Kraft Foods!”
In July, Kraft Foods will be launching an interactive microsite on www.Outstandwich.com that will act as a virtual trip around the country, as we search of the best regional sandwiches. Some of the sandwiches will be inspired by the Kraft Kitchen Experts, but others are coming straight from bloggers (and I'm sure you've seen some posts up for these already) and their readers (hoping I’ve got your attention now! )
About the book:
When Yeats and his parents visit his grandmother’s creepy old house, Yeats reunites a pair of pirate bookends and uncovers the amazing truth: Years ago, Yeats’s father traveled into The Arabian Nights with a friend, and the friend, Shari, is still stuck in the tales. Assisted by the not-always-trustworthy pirates, Yeats must navigate the unfamiliar world of the story of Shaharazad
In some groups and communities there seems to be a misconception of the use of vaccinations and antibiotics in particular with cattle. Perhaps it’s the same groups that have issues with vaccinating their own families or using prescribed antibiotics when they get sick, I don’t know.
