Campo Lindo Farms - Just the best eggs in the country! I have been partial to brown eggs since I was six years old. My mud pies were the envy of the neighborhood. I've graduated to making real food and my husband, Chef Gary, agrees that Campo Lindo eggs add that deep, rich flavor that only fresh air and sunshine can provide. They also raise chicken, turkey, lamb and beef. Visit their website to learn more about these folks who are doing their part to keep our food real and chemical-free.

Cooking with Chef Gary - Finding your bliss is a current buzz phrase that has everyone scrambling to figure out what they really enjoy in life. My husband, Gary, didn't even have to look. He started cooking for fun in his early twenties and discovered he not only loved it, but also had a gift for it. He has cooked in various restaurants the last of which was our own Tea Room and Bed and Breakfast. Now he teaches cooking classes and does cooking demonstrations. I receive many an envious look from women when I say Gary does the cooking in our household. He loves it so much I had to put my foot down. “ All right, Gary. Just let me cook one meal a week. Please?” Ah, yes. Life is grand. Who knew I’d have my own personal chef.
