  1. Been reading your blog for a while and have a question for you. I have a foraging cookbook coming out in September. The focus is on ingredients available across the country, not region specific, and on modern recipes (not salads and casseroles). Anyway, I was given a few Advanced Review Copies. Is that something you would be interested in doing a giveaway for? ~Rob AT connoley DOT com

    1. Hi Rob.
      Much as I would like to, i really don't have a large following. I think you would do better with someone else doing the giveaway.

      Do you have a blog though? I'll follow you. And what's the name of the book?

  2. I feel this is a stupid question, but I can't figure out where to subscribe!! Love this site and I would love to advertise here for my store and I am writing an article that I would love to share your blog in and quote a few things, would you mind getting back to me? info@fountainalleydotcom
