Recipes from 
Salmon From Market to Plate
by Maureen C. Berry
Sustainable seafood advocate, photographer, and author, Maureen C. Berry of Madisonville, KY, debuted her narrative-driven cookbook, Salmon From Market To Plate, when you want to eat salmon that is good for you and the oceans, in April of this year. She is already writing, Shrimp From Market to Plate, her next book.

In a casual yet informed voice, Salmon From Market To Plate defines sustainable seafood, the differences between wild and farmed salmon, and why you should care. Maureen offers shopping and cooking tips, kitchen essentials and sustainable resources to help you become a sustainable seafood guru. Salmon features easy-to-prepare Everyday Salmon recipes, and for cooks who want to up their game in the kitchen, Chef-Inspired recipes, donated from chefs who support ocean conservation and sustainable fisheries. Salmon From Market To Plate is the quintessential sustainable seafood resource cookbook for the conscientious cook.

Art is a beautiful and joyful way of life. Encourage it to the fullest.  A child coloring, concentrated on a little table, surrounded by coloring pencils and pieces of paper is one of the purest images that one could imagine.

MinuteĀ®Multi-Grain Medley

MinuteĀ® Multi-Grain Medley is a blend of four popular gluten free 100% whole grains. The grains have been divided into 4 separate bags and are ready in 10 minutes.  The four grains include: 
  1. Brown Rice - usually brown but can be black, purple, red or a variety of exotic hues.
  2. Thai Red Rice - also known as Khao Deng, is an ancient grain that has a pleasant and nutty flavor.
  3. Wild Rice - not technically rice at all but the seed of an aquatic grass.  It has a strong, hearty flavor that goes well with other grains.
  4. Quinoa (pronounced "KEEN-wah") - is a small, light-colored round grain, similar in appearance to sesame seeds.  It cooks up light and fluffy.  The protein in quinoa is a complete protein as it contains all nine essential amino acids.
