Freeze Destroys Crops in Mexico - I Hope You Have Food Storage

I hope you've already laid in some canned or frozen veggies in your food storage. Produce prices are expected to rise dramatically in the next few days after a freeze destroyed a massive number of Mexican food crops. Like it or not, most of the produce sold in the U.S. during the winter is grown in Mexico. Another reason to buy local and put in your own garden this year?

Fourth Birthday - Red Velvet Cupcakes

Today is Confessions of a Mormon Foodie's fourth birthday! It's hared to believe it's been four years since I started this blog. It's been a fun ride, and I hope to bring you more food and fun as the years go on. This year I've decided to celebrate with a Red Velvet Cupcake recipe from Dan and Sharon Yim. Dan is the community director at Kitchen Monki. If you'd rather have a full blown Red Velvet layer cake instead, I made one for my daughter's birthday a couple of years ago.

Food Blogging at a Snails Pace

Hello gentle readers! As much as I'd like to give you a treatise on slow food, today it's more about slow food blogging. I just want to apologize in advance if my post frequency slows down and becomes even more erratic than normal. I've been diagnosed with carpel tunnel syndrome in my right wrist. Typing much without aggravating it is a bit rough, not to mention keeping my wrist brace off the keyboard. Fortunately I'm left handed so I'm not completely down for the count.

Hmm. Maybe I should pick up some speech recognition software.
