Apples epitomize fall, so of course, we absolutely had to bring up Johnny Appleseed’s famous fruit. Growing up in the New Hampshire mountains, I have fond memories of picking McIntosh and Granny Smith apples with my family, then cooking up a storm.  Between homemade apple sauces, apple crisp, apple pie, apple fritters, tarts and salads, we would go pretty fruity. Apples are a New England tradition, but that wasn’t always the case. Check out my post all about apples to learn much more. Listen to this fun Foodie-Phile podcast to hear all about apples!

Green Diva Feature Interview: Deb Thomas & Cait Kennedy

Deb Thomas is the Community Organizer of the Powder River Basin Resources Council and Cait Kennedy is an intern who flew out to Clark Wyoming to work with Deb. Cait was in the studio with us and we got Deb on the phone to talk about the impact that the oil and gas industry is having on the natural resources in Wyoming. The Powder River Basin Resources Council is committed to empowering people through community organizing and education. They are helping raise awareness about the realities of oil and gas extraction, and that responsible development is critical, not only for Wyoming but for places throughout our country where natural resources can be accessed.
