Comments

I have not noticed this feature before and came to it mainly due to its name. It seems that the Post could have come up with a better title that "All We Can Eat" which raises images of gluttony, morbidly obese people, diabetes and so on.

oh c'mon really drdouglar. The masthead shows a nice healthy sweet potato being cut up and if you took the time to read the past columns you'd realize that what it's about is really good, often very healthy food, gardening and great ideas for nutritious meals.
