Hi, Alexandra. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content). I’m glad to hear that we’ve been on your radar for a while—and especially glad that you decided to join! I’ve sent a note to Lisa, maker of the fabulous no-cook tomato sauce, and am just waiting to hear back on how long it’ll store in the fridge. She’s usually not online much during the day, but I bet she responds this evening. Speaking of cooking, I’d love to hear more about your infused olive oils and finishing salts. Any chance I could twist your arm into guest-writing a blog post or a 101? You probably already know your way around, but you can always find the latest additions to HOMEGROWN at the top of the homepage, and if you’ve ever got questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home!
