Kale Butternut Squash Galette

PMD kale squash galette

By Estelle Hayes Without question, fall calls for comfort food staples like homemade soups and grilled cheese. But this year, I’m ready to welcome butternut squash into my weekly menu rotation – any way I can get it. I cannot get enough of the of this super food. My go-to recipe is a simple roasting of olive oil coated cubes tossed with lentils or quinoa, but our own Danielle Copeland of Domestic Dish seriously inspired me with her pot pie recipe a few weeks ago.

Apple Picking with Torrie and Ryan

PMD apple-picking

By Torrie Sessions Aside from a little fertilizing, a bit of basil/tomato/squash/pepper-picking, and of course- watering, we’ve stayed pretty clear of our garden over the past couple of weeks.  You may recall the “lingering [southern California] summer” we wrote about in our previous post.   Well, a few days later- our weather took a major upward turn.  In other words, HOT became HOTTER.  Lingering is an understatement.  So, we’re calling this a “transitional” month. …A month to take a step away, and get inspired.  Whether it’s flipping through Sunset magazine, strolling through our favorite garden centers, Read More →

Allergy Mom Exposes Hidden Allergens

hidden allergens - Pink moon daily 9-11-13

By Danielle Copeman Have you read the ingredient label for that bottle of shampoo and conditioner? How about that diaper cream? Bar soap? I don’t know about you, but as a parent and a parent of an allergy kid I am learning as I go. I just didn’t think about (ever) the fact that I could be lathering up my squeaky clean baby girl with some harmful stuff. I am talking egg white protein in shampoo, and nut oils in lotions. Scary stuff for a food allergy sufferer. I had never thought to look into Read More →
