I am not going repeat what I already wrote here. A quick synopsis, starting August 1st, 2010 I will publish a picture I take that day everyday for a year (well to be exact I will do this everyday until July 31st, 2011). This is the 74th of those photographs. Also, there is a Flickr collection called “The Awesome Leftovers” where I put the daily shots (if any) that didn’t make the cut.

Get them while you still can.

It’s summer, which means it’s Mojitos on the beach time. This recipe is the bomb!
What You Need
2 teaspoons of organic powdered sugar
2 ounces of organic lime juice
4 organic mint leaves
1 sprig of organic mint
2 ounces of organic white Rum
2 ounces of club soda [This is why the recipe is almost organic. I found that there is no such thing as organic club soda. If you can prove me wrong, do it!]
What You Need To Do
Place the mint leaves into a long “collins” glass, if you have one, if not a tumbler works just as well.
Next pour the the juice from the limes over it, add the powdered sugar, then gently smash the mint into the lime juice and sugar with a muddler (you can also use the back of a spoon if one isn’t available). Add ice (preferably crushed), then add the rum and stir. Top it off with the club soda and garnish with a mint sprig.
Today on April 10th, 2008, I welcome the Official Web Site of Me, CaraReynolds.com into the world. Firstly, I would like to thank Marine Boudeau for all the work and time she put into creating this fantastical place and making it more than I ever expected. It has been a long journey, but we did it!
What is CaraReynolds.com all about you may be wondering? It is about me wanting to have a space for my photography that goes beyond Flickr, a place that not only showcases my photos, but my life as well. I think this site turned out amazing. It is as I say ALL the time, AWESOME!
So, sit back and enjoy the show… and remember, just like me, CaraReynolds.com will continually evolve, so come back sometime and see me again.
Between 1980 and 2004, meat production in the developing world tripled, today amounting to well over half of the world’s output. Dense concentrations of corralled industrial livestock, which create vast quantities of manure, now skirt the edges of major cities in Asia and Latin America, causing severe environmental damages.
This is a classic Cuban recipe for sweet plantain bread. It is not only classic, but delicious.
Again this can be an organic recipe if you can find organic plantains…not an easy feet, but possible.
What you need…
1 large ripe organic plantain
1 tablespoon organic butter
2 1/4 cups organic flour
1 teaspoon organic baking powder
1 teaspoon organic baking soda
1/2 teaspoon organic salt
1/2 cup organic butter at room temperature
1cup organic sugar
2 organic eggs
1 teaspoon organic vanilla
1 teaspoon organic lemon juice
organic butter and flour for greasing and dusting pan
What to do…
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Peal and slice the plantain into 1-inch thick diagonal slices.
Melt the butter in a sauté pan over medium heat.
When hot add the plantain slices.
Sauté 2 to 3 minutes on each side, just until soft.
Transfer the plantain to a small mixing bowl and mash it well with a fork, then set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, cream the 1/2 cup butter with the sugar. Beat in the eggs, then add the plantain, vanilla, and lemon juice. Add the plantain mixture to the dry ingredients and blend.
Grease 2 8X5″ bread pans with butter and lightly dust them with flour.
Pour the batter into the pans and bake approximately 1 hour, until a knife comes out clean when inserted into bread.
Remove from pan and allow to cool slightly on a wire rack before serving.
Serves about 20 people.

According to one study, when diabetics eat copious amounts of fiber they are able to control their blood-sugar levels significantly. Fiber, which is found only in plants, helps people to lose weight because of its ability to satiate. According to a European study of 400,000 people, a high-fiber diet can slash the risk for deadly cancers by up to 40 percent.
