Albondigas (Latin Meatball Soup), Recipe of the Month, October 2018

Albondigas are Spanish-style meatballs that are often served in a tomato sauce, or in this case, soup. This is very flavorful and even better the next day. Cooking the meatballs and vegetables in the soup broth eliminiates the need for extra oil and is a lot of fun for children! - Julie Lopez (Timber Pass)

Two Green Bean Recipes, Recipe of the Month, August 2018

It is that time of year when we are harvesting an abundance of green beans from our garden. We have found that the variety Crockett, is an exceptionally tasty, deeply colored, narrow bush style green bean that has a flavor that surpasses any green bean we’ve ever tasted. Also, it grows like crazy and is pest free. Much of the harvest gets blanched for two minutes (quick boil - quick cooling rinse), then frozen on a cookie sheet, and finally packeted in vacuum bags. - Joe Pardue and Marcia Griswold (Timbercrest Trail)
