In our culture, "dirt" is a derogatory term, like "dirt poor," "dirty" or "soiled." Yet, we need only look back a few years to the 1930s Dust Bowl to see how important dirt really is.
In the 1930s, the prairie grasses were plowed under to grow crops. After several years of intense drought, the soils dried out, and no crops or native grasses survived to hold the topsoil in place. Winds whipped the topsoil into huge dust storms, causing many families to become refugees, and the loss of more than 5 inches of topsoil from almost 10 million acres, according to the United Nations.

The beginning of a new year is a good time to re-examine what is working and what needs improvement.
I've come to the conclusion that it's time to redefine the old Readers Ask column in order to expand its focus beyond requests for recipes from local restaurants.
This new column will still include such recipes but now will also be a place to feature all the interesting recipes that come to us from food product companies, magazines and websites.
