Berta’s Beet root Smoothie

(a good source of dietary fiber, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin C, iron & vitamin B6) Last year I added beets to my juicing list and was pleasantly surprised when I didn't ...

EASY: Propagating Basil in your NYC windowsill

by Tuesday, December 29, 2015

Mid summer I bought a suffering basil plant off the hot streets of Harlem. There is a lovely fresh street market on Lenox between the train stop and my apartment.
