I love a good Blog - cookusinteruptus.com

I stumbled upon this blog on one of my many message boards. It is written by Cynthia Lair...here is her bio and the link. (She has an amazing recipe for cooking Kale!)

Cynthia Lair (Cynthia Lair) - Author, faculty member (Bastyr and UW), speaker,
actress, improv artist.

Cynthia is a fresh local organic nutrition educator and cookbook author. She
lives with her husband of 25 years, Steve. Shortly before the economical crisis
he decided to cut the umbilical paycheck and go free-lance. Their daughter
Jane, has moved back into the nest with her 5-year-old son Joaquin in tow. She
doesn't have a job yet but dreams of her band making it big. Or maybe just
getting a catering job. Keeps things lively. Recently Steve's dad, Ward, came
for a visit. He doesn't like to be alone and his wife Doris seems to be on an
extended vacation. We're not sure where Steve's friend Darrell lives. At least
he can fix things.

So without a steady stream of income and more mouths to feed, Cynthia agreed to
do a web cooking show in her home. Family life proceeds as usual during
shooting, sometimes Steve, Jane, Ward or Darrell pitch in but mostly they
interrupt. There's not much money in the mattress (or the 401K) but we're
saving the world, one recipe at a time. And around the house, both the plot and
the sauce thicken.
"This is a really silly, but totally informative cooking show online from
Cynthia Lair, the author of a great cookbook, Feeding the Whole Family . "How to
cook fresh local organic whole foods despite lifes interruptions " is exactly
what I need! The short instructional videos are fun (and funny!) and the food
quickly comes together while life happens around Cynthia, her "husband," Steve
and their "daughter," Jane. She provides full meal menus on the website, both
meat and vegetarian options, and I know from her cookbook that they will be
healthy AND full of flavor." -from Dawn at The Sustainable Table
