    Ask Herbal health Expert Susun Weed & Nature Painting with JF Peters

    in Self Help

    Susun Weed answers 90 minutes of herbal health questions followed by a 30 minute interview with JF Peters. "I believe I paint to help preserve the beauty of nature. My creative process would not be possible without this clear, meaningful purpose. I guess you might say, this is my spiritual trip, to which I am totally commited.  The images of my paintings begin in my mind. They appear as a blend of memory (beautiful places I've experienced) and imagination. After a few years, the image calls me to the point that I begin to slowly and methodically, bring the painting out onto the canvas. When the calling ceases, the painting is born. Nature is my guide and the vehicle for my creation."

    The Frugal Foodie on the Regional Styles of Chinese Food

    in Cooking

    My last show was about how Mexican food has become more authentic in America. The vast variety of styles that comprise Chinese food has also become more authentic and pervasive in America as well. You will find a Chinese food restaurant in every corner of the country, and even the smallest towns.


    America's introduction to Chinese food was very Americanized adaptation of Cantonese dishes. I will be discussing the history of Chinese food in America, and how the various regions of China differ not only in ingredients, but also styles of cooking. Of course, no discussion would be complete without sharing some of these recipes.
