Quips, Travails, and Braised Oxtails

A few years ago, I became interested in the concept of the food desert, areas unserved by large grocery stores which have been linked to dangerous diet-related health outcomes.  I wondered what kind of diet I could create without a full-service grocery and challenged myself to scour local dollar stores and drugstores to find a better, tastier and healthier diet.  Since I believe education is crucial to addressing food insecurity, I also write about teaching my young son to cook for himself.  Find out more about what I've discovered in places where resources are scarce.
