About Me

I'm a cookbook author, "A Month of SUNdays - Solar Cooking at Home," entrepreneur, and inventor of The Solar Chief, a solar oven specifically designed for the mainstream cook, available to the public in 2011. Welcome to my blog and a whole new way to reduce fossil fuel usage, enjoy great meals, and put money back into your own pockets. About five years ago, I discovered a secret -- mainstream cooks had never heard of solar cooking. Why? Why shouldn't lower energy bills be available to everyone? Why shouldn't everyone be able to reduce their impact on fossil fuel usage? Once you use a solar oven, cooking is free for the life of that oven -- 20 to 40 years of free cooking. Now, that's a secret that has to be shared! 

I've had people mention that they can't reach me through this site. So, here's how you can email me. Send it to sjthomasREMOVE@mainstreamsolarcooking.com  Copy and paste into your address box and then delete the word REMOVE. Or, write me at S J Thomas, Creative Handz, 1280 White Memorial Church Road, Willow Spring NC 27592.

Rockin' Chair Reflections is for everything else. Opinions, observations, ruminations, they're all there -- not to mention the occasional anecdote from back in the day.

The 365 Photo Challenge is a 2011 journey I'm taking along with several other photographers. Jen of Cabin Fever in Vermont is the leader of the challenge and generates a new word a day that is the focus of that day's photo.  Anyone can participate and follow within their own comfort zone, with as many or as few photos as they want to share. So, add to the fun, if you want to play along. I've joined to help me gain skill, as well as become more comfortable taking photos of my recipes


  1. I just read your comment on almostallthetruth regarding the guest post from Mother Earth School. Thank you for your comments - we'd love to have you 'like' our FB page - it really helps spread the word about outdoor education & what is possible when our children spend ample time outdoors! Thanks!

  2. This is totally intriguing to me. What an interesting idea. So many people talk about ways of reducing energy usage... and cutting bill costs... that are completely impractical for my family. But this... this is a possibility.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Sarah! I hope you'll stop by often and discover just how many different foods can be cooked by the sun and discover the savings, as well.

  7. Ashley Madison may not be your average dating website, but it does have quite a lot to offer for those who have some untraditional desires. It offers a good layout and numerous features/functions that you can take advantage of. The payment system is a bit tricky to figure out at first, and it would be nice if they offered month-to-month membership options. Overall, it’s not a bad site if you are looking for extra-marital companionship. It has a pretty big user base, so your chances of finding the perfect match nearby are actually quite good.
