Cooking With Herbs
Close picture of herbs  
       Herbs can make a familiar dish new or lift an ordinary entrée to gourmet status. Their subtle magic transforms soups, stews, salads, breads and even desserts. With a bouquet of herbs or a scattering of herb flowers as a garnish, your food will look as wonderful as it tastes.
1. Basil - It's warm, heady flavor lends itself to Italian or Mediterranean cooking, especially tomato dishes or with eggs, cheese or salads. Special tips: Pesto Sauce: blend 2 c. of fresh basil, ¼ c. of parmesan, ½ c. of olive oil, 3 tbs. of pine nuts or walnuts and 3 cloves of garlic minced. Use on pasta and vegetables.

Six Ways Nature in Our Lives Can
Reduce the Violence in our World
sunny-tree-boughs.jpg        Here are six reasons why meaningful relationships with nature may bolster mental health and civility, and reduce human violence in our world.
1. Green exercise improves psychological health. Findings suggest that priority should be given to developing the use of green exercise as a therapeutic intervention. Among the benefits; are reducing blood pressure and burning calories; and the building of social networks.
2. In some cases, greening neighborhoods may help reduce domestic violence. Those living near trees exhibited fewer aggressive and violent acts against partners. Also play areas in urban neighborhoods with more trees have fewer incidences of violence, possible because the trees draw a higher proportion of responsible adults.
