No More Moldy Berries!

Life can be very hectic. Learning to slow down, smell the roses, pick the berries is something I am working on. So many times I rush through the market grabbing the things I need to rush home and make the things I want. But there are times when I pause to look around me at all the beautiful colors nature has provided for us in our fruits and vegetables. It is the rainbow and I am grateful for it!

My Mom taught me to thunk the melons, smell the strawberries and squeeze the citrus to get the freshest and sweetest fruits. I do that to this day so when I bring my well-felt and sniffed fruit home I want it to last so I can savor every piece. Continue reading

Today’s Reason to Celebrate – Apples!

Take It Outside!

Grill It All
 
Every since I was a child I thought food tasted better when you ate it outside. From camping trips to eating a vine ripe tomato with a shaker of salt while watering the garden, it just tasted more real outside.
 
Now the summer season is almost upon us and I am so excited to start grilling everything I can get my hands on. Grilling is not just for meats; veggies and fruit are great on the grill too! Grilling makes everything taste better and the cleanup is a breeze.

Do You Go a Caroling?

Carolers
 
One of the things I enjoy most about the Christmas season is the Carols. Old, new, it doesn’t matter. My husband and I begin the season decorating the tree and singing to all of our favorites. My mother and I knew all the words and my husband, like my father, make up their own words.
 

That made me wonder; maybe everyone doesn’t remember the old favorites. How many do you remember? Not to worry if you don’t, the answers are at the bottom!

Kids in the Kitchen

Cooking Kids
My friend Carolyn recently told me that she has dedicated Wednesday nights to cooking a new recipe for her family. The kids were tired of the same old things like tacos and spaghetti.  She pours through her cookbooks and cooking magazines to find a new recipe that her kids might like each week.

Theory of Relativity….A Cooks Version!

Einsteine
 
Einstein may have come up with his Theory of Relativity first but I certainly experienced my own this weekend! Since we all know about Einstein’s, let me tell you about mine. The first time you try a new recipe you are pretty sure you can make it better the next time. But that is not always the case….thus the cook’s version of the Theory.

To Keg or Not to Keg, That is The Question!

Keg vs Case
 
Kegger Parties from college were the way to go then but is that what works best for the party you are going to throw now? Not only do our tastes change but we are more sophisticated now, right? Variety is the spice of life and to offer several kinds of beer is a classy thing to do.

Hey Yogi! What’s in Your Pic-a-nic Basket?

Yogi Picnic
 
Summertime is Picnic time! Whether you grab a few leftovers from the refrigerator, throw them in the ice chest and go to the local park or beach, or decide to go gourmet and plan your meal and scenic destination, a picnic is always a fun change of pace. The beauty of a picnic basket is that you can fill it with all your favorite things. There are no wrong items as long as you know how to store them, within reason. Leave the ice cream for another day.
