October 24 2012 Appalachia Newsletter

Greetings to all folks near and far.

Autumn here in Washoe Valley, Nevada, has so far been lovely. The colors of trees and bushes are gorgeous. Yet, I know rarely does the landscape of a beautiful autumn come close to the beauty of fall in Appalachia country.

This time of year is when I re-discover my love of cooking up delicious stews and breads for the family. I have some Native American recipes from Appalachia country for you to try. Enjoy!

Here is my latest article from the Appalachia site at

Harvest Supper - Recipe
The Three Sisters, corn, squash and beans, have always been a mainstay to the diets of most Native Americans. When these crops were introduced to the Iroquois and other tribes, they were a great compliment to the meats provided by the hunters.

An Old Irish Blessing

May God grant you always
A sunbeam to warm you,
a moonbeam to charm you,
a sheltering Angel so nothing can harm you.
Laughter to cheer you.
Faithful friends near you.
And whenever you pray, Heaven to hear you.

Till next time, may you walk in peace and harmony.
