I thought this would make a great Bonus Valentine’s Episode since it’s all about cooking (men cooking for their girl but could be girls cooking for their guy – overall just the share a healthy homemade meal idea)
I have a lot of listeners who want to be market farmers and they are always interested in how to get their customers to cook the food in their CSAs and also the people who grow their own food or get food at the market want to know how to cook more vegetables from their garden.
We’ve been married for 25 years and my husband built this mini farm last year. but we just dug a well a few years ago 560′ deep and we’re working on making the change from gardener to market farmer. It’s a huge learning challenge somewhat like going from PC to Mac or vice Versa
I’m so excited because I always wanted to work at Rodales.
worked at Rodale for 10 years. It’s part of a small community in Emmaus, PA.
Are you a millennial I talk about millennials a lot if you’ve been there for 10 years maybe your not.
IDK, I’m 32.
I think millennial’s are born between 1980-1995, my step-daughters are born in 1980 and 1984 and they’re are. I think it’s still weird because a generation should be 18 years shouldn’t so IDK but I think you qualify.
There’s a little more pre-chat here but then it jumps to our intro!
Today he is here to talk to us about his new book: A Man, A Pan, A Plan: 100 Delicious & Nutritious One-Pan Recipes You Can Make Right Now! ! When you see his videos you’re gonna love them as much as I did.
I heard about you on this new podcast called Food Republic. One thing I love about this is your videos are short and simple!
Thanks for the kind introduction. I’ve been the food and nutrition editor at Men’s Health. for 10 years for those of you who aren’t looking to get a 6 pack abs chiseled.
We’ve been reporting on food and nutrition before other magazines and websites were doing it.
We’re owned by Rodale Press as many of your listeners might know we’re founded by JI Rodale who is thought of as the father of the organic movement.
It was not even called that in the day. JI was just doing some interesting things at the farm and said we never needed them before why do we need them now?
An hour and 1/2 from Philidelphia
open for visitation
One thing a lot of listeners might be interested in, last year I talked to Maggie Saska so people might also be interested in a job or an internship or volunteering at the farm.
Rodale has other titles under its umbrella
I’ve always been hungry
I had to learn to cook
My mom was a wonderful cook probably didn’t want me in the kitchen that was her turn to take a break from 2 rambunctious children
When I went to get a journalism degree I quickly realized I wasn’t gonna get delicious food like my mom made in the dining hall.
My sister was kind enough to gift me the Culinary Institute of America’s
one Christmas and I’ve been cooking my way through it.
Also through Men’s Health. incredible pleasure of working with some of the best chefs in the country.
I really have this sort of this tutelage under some of the world’s best cooks! I’ve taken their recipes and transmuted them into the magazine in a culmination of the book for the home cook.

grandfather bought a plot of land across the street
potato bugs off of his potato plants, off of his probably 1/8 of an acre plot
Through my grandfather and plot I knew the more direct involvement the better how it’s gonna taste. I probably have a smaller plot then even my grandfather, I’m working on that.
taste better because I put in that sweat equity!
Why don’t you tell us about the book and things you’re cooking and growing.
It’s been out since October and if you’re a woman please do not let the tittle deter you! My wife is a marathon runner she has personally approved every single recipe!

I am a minimalist when it comes to the kitchen I don’t think you need one of those kitchen aid everyone puts on their registries!
I don’t even own a toaster or anything that is a

And it is. I love the videos! I was watching the avacado video becuase I knew some of it but I didn’t know the put the knife in and twist part. Im a pescatarian who eats fish, you put the almonds right in the butter the fish cooks in?
Yes. It’s all about simplicity.
Im glad you brought up the videos
They did a good job of mocking me in a polite and respectful way
question about butter
But it is not to be feared
very few cooking fats

browning butter and almonds
In that catfish almondine recipe after you take the catfish out after searing it in butter you can throw in raw sliced almonds, which get this beautiful nutty aroma and you have a sauce to pour directly over the fish
dinner in about 8-10 minutes
You make it look it look easy. You make it look doable, not like in the Julia and Julia movie where she chops the massive pile of onions, that I’m never gonna do. You make it looks possible. I love the
Its not just me making it look easy, its that they are easy and you can do it
one of my favorite recipes
it is a steak
The people who go out to a steak house for the same dish there’s a suckers fee built in and they are charging double
doesn’t take a lot of experience you just need a good plan.
I meant to tell you also in the Pre-chat I got picked up in NY on Progressive Radio Network I’ll be there are a lot of listeners in NYC who think the expensive grass-fed beef instead of going out once a week or month you could stay home and buy the grass-fed beef!
