Thanks, Aaron! Will link up to it :)

The More With Less Cookbook was one of our great joys when my late wife and I were living in rural Bolivia as volunteers with MCC. It's such a great resource. That and Where There Is No Doctor were our field Bibles...well, those and the actual Bible; we were with the Mennonites after all.

Gosh, this feels so self-promoting. Maybe I should just own that. Here's the thing, I wrote this blog post recently that features food pretty prominently. I don't know if it actually counts as a foodie or kitchen kind of post, but here it is. If it's out of line to throw this up here, just slap my hand and I'll step back in line. The post is called 'The Culturally-Sensitive Butt: on Language, Food, Humility, and Humor.' I hope you enjoy it and related to it.

Hey Maggie.  Good question :)  TeamHouse Kitchen is evolving and for right now, we use it as the portal to all things foodie.  Features, blog posts and highlighted discussions all show up here so that people can find everything foodie.  The working group is more discussions and ideas.  I DO want to encourage people to write more blog posts so that recipes and stories can stand alone and not get lost in the discussion threads as they are just now (IMHO).  Let me know if you see changes to make or things to improve please.  Taking all feedback! xx

what is the difference between The Teamhouse Kitchen and the Foodies Working Group? Seems they might serve the same purpose? Just want to know where best place to post info and questions. Thanks!

Hey all...till I get this sorted out and more organized on how we can find blogs (or maybe discussions are better?), here is the link to a blog about finding organic food in Pakistan....(that I wrote..)

LOL... champagne yeast would probably not make my list of priorities either...

Comment by Alanna Shaikh on January 25, 2012 at 8:23pm

Agreed about inconsistent results, but I am not especially inclined to carry champagne yeast in my suitcase.

Comment by J. on January 25, 2012 at 4:05pm

Yep - that works very well. You take a risk with bread-making yeast (most people are surprised to learn that the yeast you use to ferment with is a key determinant of finished flavor), mainly because the results can be erratic.

Oh, and be sure to follow Ales From the Hood

Highly important resource: How to make your own alcohol

I've done this twice now. The key is to taste every day once seven days have passed, so you can find the optimal balance of alcohol and sugar for flavor.
