Not My President
(Zoo At Home is NOT a political blog. It is a place to share my thoughts.  Right now, these are my thoughts. Take them for what they are worth to you.)   Yes, Donald Trump is now

Building the Perfect Beast
(NOTE: This is a long post with lots of images, so it may take a while to load.) We've had this project in the works for awhile now, saving up our pennies (okay, more than pennies but not enough to buy our own island) for a much needed technology refresh. W...

  A friend of mine requested this recipe and I've been meaning to post it for awhile now. I just keep forgetting because, honestly, I don't make this very often. I mean, face it. Even with the addition of a whole grain crust and lots of veggies, pizza still...

I came across this abandoned post today when I came back to the blog at the request of a friend. I honestly don't know why I didn't publish it when I wrote it. Obviously, something distracted me. Interestingly, I've had a fairly stressful year since writing...

Oven-roasted Golden Beets
I was smitten by produce today. We have a new addition to the produce
dept at our local Freddy's. His name is Andrew and, just let me say,
this guy really knows how to stack his vegetables. The organic display
looked amazing! And, right smack in the midd...
