Adrianna Trigiani wrote a novel called "Big Stone Gap" where childhood foods of the main character , Ave Maria Mulligan, are described. In the sequel, "Old Cherry Holler"' Ave Maria, now married, is making a bread her mother used to make. It is rustic flat bread with roasted red peppers and olive oil pressed on top. No name was given to the bread, but based on the good description in the book, I tried making it for my family. I don't know if it was anything close to Ave Maria's family recipe, but we enjoyed it very very much.

I have been making my own laundry detergent for he last 2.5 years. It is made of Zote brand bar soap (I buy it at Home Depot or Walmart) grated, and mixed with hot water and borax and washing soda. I make enough to fill a 7 gallon bucket. Lasts me about 6 months as we do laundry all the time, but sooooo cheap and effective at cleaning. Best part is there is no perfume smell.

I'm female and even I don't like farmers markets. They are over stimulating to me, sort of like a carnival.
