Having three kids with different dietary needs and desires means that I spend a lot of time in the kitchen trying to make everybody happy. One of my daughters has celiac disease, another is a vegetarian, and my son-well, let's just say that if it is processed, packaged or fried,... Continue reading

I just have to give a shout-out to newspaper food writers, and newspaper writers in general. These hard working folks should be celebrities. With tight deadlines to meet and the nerve to uncover the truth, they are celebrities in my book. Anyway, with blueberries in high season, here's a great... Continue reading

I'm a bit of a celebrity chef junkie. Ina Garten, David Lebowitz, and Lydia Matticchio Bastianich are a few of my favorite chefs. Like the people in my life, once I find a chef that strikes my fancy, I am committed for life. Recently I came across Ina Garten’s recipe... Continue reading

Last in a series While in New York, we did all the touristy things one would expect to do. We took one of those double-decker buses, where we sat in the open air and toured different parts of the city. This is a great way to get an overview of... Continue reading

One of the first things we did when we arrived in NYC on a warm and sunny Sunday afternoon was to walk across the street from our hostel and explore Central Park. There is beauty everywhere you look. Decorative trees and shrubs surround streams that trickle through the landscape. Quiet... Continue reading

Sixth in a series The last place we visited on our trip was New York City. We stayed in a hostel, above the West Side YMCA in Manhattan. This is a great place, and is right across the street from Central Park. We slept in bunkbeds, and our rooms were... Continue reading

Fifth in a series The Amish have very unique names for the towns they inhabit. Bird in Hand, White Horse, Churchtown, Goodville, Bareville, Intercourse and Blue Ball are just a few of the names that provoke quizzical thought as to their origins. My biggest goal as we left Hershey and... Continue reading

It does not smell like chocolate in the town of Hershey, PA. A few years ago, most of the production was moved to a new facility just outside of town, so only on a good day, when the wind is blowing just right, may you get that whiff of chocolate... Continue reading

Fourth in a series After saying goodbye to D.C., we headed out in our rental car toward Gettysburg, PA. It was drizzling when we left, but soon that drizzle turned into a pouring rain that did not stop all day. It was a bummer, because we could not get out... Continue reading

Third in a series The history that Washington D.C. holds is inescapable, from the halls of the National Archives down to the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. We tried to see as much of it as we could, and we squeezed it all in until the kids were ready to... Continue reading

Second in a series of summer travels. I do have to admit, I did not shower before going out to dinner. It was late, I was tired, very hungry, and the town was looking rather deserted so I figured that if all five of us took showers, the restaurants would... Continue reading

First in a series detailing 2013's summer adventures. Our family vacations have consisted of nearby locations that are familiar and easily accessable by car. The Mojave desert, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Luis Obispo are familiar destinations for us. We have even ventured out and gone to Yellowstone, about... Continue reading

originally posted October 2011 I love fall. As a school teacher, it seems more to me like the start of a new year than in January. Recently, we decided to take advantage a school holiday and head west to the Oregon coast. We stopped for a night before our final... Continue reading

Yet another superbowl and its commercials are in the can. I was not all that impressed with this year's offerings. The game was painful to watch, and most of the commercials were lackluster at best. Two commercials, however, stand out from the rest. After making us wait it out until... Continue reading

Recently, I bought a new Kitchen Aid stand mixer, and as a bonus, I got a free pasta making attachment. I searched the internet for good pasta recipes, and found one by Mario Batali. I figured, since I am making an italian inspired dish, I should choose an Italianish chef.... Continue reading

A while ago, I posted about a back-to-school activity that inspires personal clothing style. I introduced the idea of fashion strips. These are mini clothing collages, which give style inspiration when it's time to go shopping. To see the original blog post, click here. Well, it is that time of... Continue reading

On Saturday, I racked my brain trying to think up something fresh to cook for Sunday. I didn't want to go to the store, and didn't want to spend a lot of money. So, as I was sitting in my backyard, I noticed that the blackberries were starting to get... Continue reading

I saw this quote on Writers Circle and loved it. Reminds me that when we do things we enjoy, we are doing it for ourselves and because it fills us up, and that there should be no ulterior motives for recognition or fame, and that is enough. “Perhaps I write... Continue reading

For this week's Fresh Food Sunday, I decided to make vegetarian lasagna with focaccia bread. One look at the lasagna recipe will tell you that it is chocked full of fresh vegetables and does not need meat to make it a hearty meal. It has been adapted from a meatless... Continue reading
