My favorite poet is Rumi, a 13th century Persian poet and theologian whose visions, words, and life teach us how to reach inner peace and happiness, stop the continual stream of hostility and achieve true, global peace and harmony.
I hope you enjoy my cooking demo from yesterday’s CBS 46 Better Morning show. We were thankful we had a chance to get some airtime because due to the Atlanta flood, most of the show was dedicated to the weather. Tracye Hutchins, one of their reporters had planned an entire Farm to Table show where Rebecca and I were to be on for several segments.
The weather “rained” out a big part of our Serenbe Farm to Table segment today but we were glad to have some time on the show. It was a great adventure with Dana Widmer and Rebecca Williams starting at 3 am as we loaded up our car and made our way to the television station. Rebecca did a wonderful segment on container gardens with vegetables from Serenbe Farms.

“A little paint on the wall and Voila, you have an instant nest where you can recoup, revive, or entertain!”
Here are a couple of recipes from our wonderful Georgia EMC day. I hope everyone enjoys both the chicken and the blueberry cobbler. The cobbler is one of my favorite recipes from Nathalie Dupree’s cookbooks.
“The beauty of it is that you can use any kind of fruit you like and it is so easy to prepare. Just last week, I made the same cobbler with apples and it was absolutely delicious!”
Preheat oven to 350º. Slice butter, put in baking dish and place in oven until butter is melted. Mix together the dry ingredients then add the milk. Pour batter into melted butter and then scatter the fruit around. Place in oven and bake for 30-45 minutes.
