Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: Local Eats


Local Eats

I've been busily working on a not so secret project lately, a radio show, and it scares me to death. Seriously I am a shy person and the thought of speaking in front of people makes me sick to my stomach. But the need to spread the word about the local food scene in our valley is stronger than my shyness. If you know me in real life you're thinking BS, she is not shy, but I am and I FORCE myself to step outside my comfort zone on a daily basis.

Back to the SHOW! It's called Local Eats and it's going to cover all about food in our borough, the Matanuska Susitna Borough that is. Farmers, CSAs, new restaurants, old restaurants, food storage, preservation, The Alaska State Fair, cottage industries, the local brewery and so much more. I have recorded the first show and it was actually fun! I don't know when it will air but I will let you all know when it is scheduled. And it will be available as a podcast so you can download it and listen when you want to. The radio station is Radio Free Palmer 89.5 fm located in Palmer, how about that?

Each show will feature a menu: Appetizers--bits and pieces around the world--Main Dish--1-2 pieces on the local food scene and Dessert--a sweet treat whether it be a recipe or an interview or.....I will be interviewing folks around town once or twice a week, sharing a blog post when relevant and basically having a delicious time.

If you live locally and you have a hot tip on any food issues, events, restaurants please feel free to drop me an email at localeats.palmer@gmail.com.

How will this affect this blog? It won't. I will be continuing to post here regularly because this is my first love.

Peace and Love--



  1. You (the person who spoke at a national blog convention) shy? I'm shocked. Just joking, I wish you luck on your new adventure, I'll be listening.

  2. Good luck. I am shy, so I know how hard this must be for you. The listeners will be lucky to have your information. I wish I could hear it in Utah.

  3. Sounds like a fantastic show and a great idea to promote local eating! Good luck to you :)


Am I talking DIRECTLY to you? Well then let me know!
