Local Food Focus: Tepary Beans

I posted a photo of a beet on my facebook page the other day. A friend asked, “what is that and what does it taste like?” My reply was, “it’s a beet and it tastes like a beet.” I love simplicity. Many believe that the name tepary comes from the Tohono O’odham phrase t’pawi  meaning”it’s a bean”.

Tammy’s Top Ten (t3 report) Easy Holiday Appetizers

I’ve had many comments from readers who thought the idea of knowing how to prepare one easy appetizer really well was a great idea. It’s that time of year when we’re invited out and it’s nice to take something along to share. So, I sat out to make a list for us with the rule being that I can’t link to a recipe. Rather if it’s truly simple, I can explain it in a few words and you can replicate it.
