Welcome to Come Back to the Table

We ask so much of ourselves today! Women and men both have challenging, demanding jobs that require huge commitments of time and energy.

We have families that require time, attention, and nurturing, children who require our loving presence, attention and guidance. We have homes that need care and maintenance. Fueling all these demands on our energy with fast food, convenience foods, and take-out doesn't work.

We need real food, honest food, full of vitamins and minerals, and so do our families. I invite you to come back to the table, to savor the difference real food can make in your energy level and your sense of well-being. I invite you to learn simple food preparation with fresh ingredients, seasonal eating that anchors us, that lets us live in harmony with the rhythms of the Earth.

Testimonials

What you eat matters.  Linda shares her depth and breadth of knowledge and resources about nutrition, food preparation, being in balance, eating locally, living wholly – and more – with humor, fascination, expertise and care. 

Peggy Short, Ph.D., D.Min.

I was a student in Linda’s class on Rebuilding your Gut. She made a difficult topic fun and easy to understand. Her years of cooking experience, inclusive approach, and sense of humor, put everyone at ease. Linda is quick to pick up on people’s needs, and shapes the class to meet those needs. I love the recipes we received, they are nutritious, easy to prepare and colorful! I have used them many times since I finished the class. They all seem to turn out well!

Linda is very generous with her time and willingness to answer questions in and outside of class. Her demeanor is warm and welcoming. By the end of class we all had some new friends and new tools to improve our health.

Chile Peppers Explained

May 25, 2017

There is a bewildering array of chile peppers available to us at the supermarkets (and farmers’ markets later in the summer) varying from mild to hot to extremely hot.  Not knowing the difference can result in a surprisingly spicy dish when we just want a little “kick.” Chile refers to an individual species of pepper,…

Cowboy Beans

February 13, 2017

Charro means cowboy, and I can imagine the camp cook simmering these beans over a fire while the herd moves toward the campsite to bed down for the night.  Very hearty, they are also delicious served with gluten-free cornbread and some fried apples. Charro Beans ½ lb bacon, cut crosswise into 1 inch pieces Bacon drippings 1 large…
