We're coming up on Easter, when we're sure to be surrounded by heavily-sweetened, white-sugar laden, conventional treats. Here's a whole food treat you can make instead! It is perhaps a wee bit on the sweet side, but that can be a good thing on a special occasion, I think. :) This simple recipe uses honey, coconut butter, cocoa powder, vanilla and unsweetened shredded coconut. It holds up well at room temperature, though it is especially yummy chilled. Enjoy! Print recipe here: http://wp.me/peJND-3ni

Hi, my name is Wardeh ('Wardee') Harmon. I am a blogger, teacher, homemaker, homeschooling mom, traditional foods cook, and Ron Paul supporter. http://gnowfglins.com
I think Dr. Ron Paul is a really cool guy. He's a Christian who's been married for 55 years to his wife Carol. He gardens with his grandkids in Texas. He's an obstetrician turned Texas congressman.
"But it is true, there was essentially, 4000 babies that I delivered. And it's a delightful thing to bring new life into the world."
He's a champion for the unborn.
"You can't very well defend liberty and personal choices if you don't defend life."
He's just so down to earth and real.
My family and I agree with Dr. Ron Paul on a lot of issues, but we primarily support him because he cherishes liberty.
"It's most important that we understand where our life and liberty comes from. And for me, it comes from a Creator. It doesn't come from our government."
Liberty comes from our Creator and it is a God-given right. Our government should be protecting this, but instead is taking it away, bit by bit. We have body scans at airports, difficulty selling or obtaining raw milk..
"I would like to restore your right to drink raw milk any time you [want] to."
Water supplies tainted with chemicals like fluoride and chlorine, heavy taxation on the fruits of our labor.
"If we have a natural right to our life and liberty, we should have a natural right to the fruits of our labor."
If you're willing to fight for your own liberty, you also have to be willing to fight for the liberty of others -- others that may not choose to exercise their liberty the same way you do.
"You don't have to be judgmental and say, 'Oh, he's using his freedom the wrong way. I want him to use his freedom the way I use my freedom.' No, you can't do that. You have to be tolerant. People say, 'Oh, no, you can't be tolerant. What if they do something that you don't like?' Tolerance does not mean endorsement."
"It's wrong to assume that if you legalize liberty and freedom, that because somebody might do something wrong, you don't want to legalize it. Liberty doesn't mean libertine -- it means you have choices."
Everyone gets the responsibility to make their own choices. It's just like how God doesn't force us to believe in Him. But, with government, if what we do hurts or trespasses on someone's liberty, that's when government steps in as a protector. And that's how it should be.
"The easiest way for people to understand this is, we do understand pretty well in this country about religious liberty. We know that you have a right to practice your religion. We know that you have a right not to practice religion, if you don't want. But, if we could translate that into all personal behavior, as well as all economic behavior -- that it's your life, you run your life, don't hurt any body, don't steal from every body, you suffer the consequences of the way you run your life. You can practice your religion as you see fit. You can run your intellectual life as you see fit. And you have the right to spend your money as you see fit."
Ron Paul is the only politician who understands how important liberty is and how to protect it and uphold it. As President he'll pull the meddling government out of our lives so we can decide for ourselves what to eat and how to educate our children. He'll give the states back the power to protect the unborn. He'll bring our troops home and he'll stop sending all that money overseas. He wants to stop the Fed from printing money we don't have and therefore bring our cost of living back under control. He'll phase out the FDA and EPA.
"You can't just drop it all at once, but you can transition away from it. On regulations, no I don't believe in any of these federal regulations. But that doesn't mean I don't believe in regulations. The regulation of the marketplace takes care of it."
Please help put Dr. Ron Paul in the White House and know that your vote is a vote for Life, Prosperity, and Liberty.
If you want to know more about Ron Paul and where he stands on issues of liberty and other important matters, visit WhyRonPaul.com (http://WhyRonPaul.com).

Tami asks: "I've seen your sourdough starter videos and have my own starter sitting on the counter now (started 8 days ago). It doesn't take 12 hours to double, more like 3 to 5. Should I still wait the full 12 hours before feeding it again, even though it "falls" by that point? And I know you said "several weeks" for it to be ready. It smells good and sour now, will two weeks be enough? Thank you, and thanks for all the free resources! I really appreciate them!"

Do you know why soy is pretty much universally used in chicken feed? It is an inexpensive source of protein and it helps chickens grow faster. But it isn't so good for us and you can find out why at http://westonaprice.org/soy-alert. Perhaps you, like many others, are looking for soy-free chicken food.

We get around 4 gallons of milk per day from our Jersey cow. For our family, this is plenty to make cheese, butter, kefir, ice cream and more — plus we have some to share with friends AND some to clabber (spontaneously sour) for the chickens and dog. I figured out a really easy way to get both clabber for the chickens and sour cream for us, with hardly any work at all.

We help with a large garden on friends' property. This farm belongs to Beth & Kerry Olson, who sell pastured poultry and eggs in Sutherlin, Oregon. Three polytunnels sit on what used to be pasture. This allows us to grow earlier and later than usual. But the weeding is a big job! In June, we harvested beets, spinach, lettuce, radishes and artichokes.

I first learned about tortillas — not the bread kind, but the Spanish omelet kind — on the BBC TV River Cottage series with Hugh Fernley-Whitingshall. You saute and cook various ingredients (potatoes, meats, onions, veggies, beans, etc.) and then pour whisked eggs overtop. When cooked, the eggs set the whole mixture into a pie — or a Spanish omelete. View the print recipe here: http://gnowfglins.com/2011/04/11/free-video-tortilla-spanish
