Beans are a popular garden plant, with good reason—they are one of the tastiest vegetables in the garden. They are also pretty easy to grow, and with a little bit of TLC you can get quite a yield of tasty pods or shelled beans that can be used in all kinds of recipes. Beans are also a perfect garden crop for vegetarians because of their high protein content. What’s not to like?

With the summer months rapidly gaining momentum, what better way to enjoy the warm nights than with live music? Although some of us may be busily earning money to pay off those college debts, hard work deserves a reward every now and then. With new releases from Beach House, Hot Chip, Best Coast, Kimbra, The Tallest Man on Earth, and Norah Jones (just to name a few), this summer is sure to be filled with plenty of new anthems and notable shows to catch. Here’s a sampling of a few tours that will be moving through the Pennsylvania area during the upcoming months.

I wanted to do something slightly more savory with my recent bunch of rhubarb, which is tough because it is very tart and needs some sugar. I settled on the idea of something “applesaucey” and it was a hit with our grilled pork. It would be great with some strawberries added in (if you like the strawberry-rhubarb combo and are willing to part with your strawberries—but I’m not there yet.)

Have you ever walked into a place and smiled? It’s like finding your “happy place.” Happiness may not be found in coffee (or chocolate), but they definitely help. And when you meander into a little cafe like Helena’s Chocolate Cafe & Creperie in Carlisle, and look around, I guarantee that you will smile.
It’s a little touch of European cafe-style happiness in the middle of a historic town. It’s the feeling of being involved in the community, and yet, somehow elevating the community … adding something special to the recipe of community. A sprinkle of joy + a dash of delectable delights + sunny sentiment = Welcome to Helena’s!

We all know the story of Justin Bieber’s rise to fame by being discovered on YouTube, but six sisters from California are taking it to a whole new level through their covers. Cimorelli - comprised of Christina (21), Katherine (19), Lisa (17), Amy (16), Lauren (13), and Dani (11), has over 650,000 subscribers to its YouTube channel, is currently working on a full-length album, and just won Ryan Seacrest’s“Bieber-Off” contest that was hosted on his website. And to think it all started with one Miley Cyrus song.

A truly authentic experience…

When I moved to State College in 1972 and noticed five large plants growing in my backyard in suburban Lemont, I had to ask what they were. Rhubarb, I was told. I had never heard of it. So I took out all but one of them to make room (ironically) for a strawberry patch. Who knew?
I know better now, of course. And judging from the (modest) increase in sales of our Jade Family Farm rhubarb, folks in Happy Valley are catching on, too. Now you can find it from several vendors at most local farmers markets – and sometimes in supermarkets.

The support last night for the broadcast premiere of “Our Town: Nanty Glo” was amazing! Everyone in the studio said they were so proud to be a part of the project and that they were so proud to be a part of the community. The excitement from the community was felt from the moment the program began and we’ve received 323 contributions in support of the program.
