How can it be May already? This year has a disturbing velocity behind it. Also, for the last couple weeks or so the temperature in Seattle has been in the upper 40s, occasionally pinky toe-ing its way up into the low 50s. Always dark and rainy, it’s had the gloomy feel of mid-winter. Today,… MORE

I finally tried stevia after I found some at the same price I would pay for Sugar Twin. Because of health issues I got off sugar a few years ago. Of course, I consume it in baked goods, but I don't add sugar to anything like my decaf coffees and teas or to fruit, ceral, etc. And I stay… MORE

In a few days we will be celebrating Easter. While the ham is in the oven and potatos are on the stove top, family and friends are having a pre-Easter dinner happy hour of sorts – noshing on deviled eggs and sipping on champagne.  But what about a cocktail with your antipasto? Bellinis… MORE

To say my husband, Kevin, does not like salt on the rim of his cocktail is an understatement. Seriously, he just looks at the salt and his mouth purses. I, on the other hand, sometimes enjoy a little salt on the rim with my margarita. And, I’ve seen folks at the bar ask for extra salt… MORE

As a child I hated coconut, my mother used to make me what she called ovenless cookies and always left out the coconut because I found it disgusting.  I now make the same cookies with the coconut, her recipe is just like Cocoa Quickies with one exception, she adds MORE

The most underappreciated ingredient in cocktails would have to be ice. Typically it doesn't merit a mention in cocktail recipes, except as an off-hand aside in the directions: “shake over ice.” But there’s an old (mostly forgotten) adage about the necessary building blocks of a cocktail:… MORE

Well, I'm fixin’ to have me a rye whiskey, & remembering something Herbert Hoover said about cocktail time: “It’s the pause between the errors and trials of the day and the hopes of the night.” So true, Herbert. Every evening after work at the Department of Commerce, Hoover would… MORE

I opened a bottle of wine last night that was like a perfect Valentine to the senses. It was the 2008 Firehouse Red from Tamarack Cellars in Walla Walla, WA. The first thing that struck me was its ridiculous perfume! If you have a big, oversized tulip-shaped wine glass, I’d drink it from… MORE

In ongoing commitment to preserving the life and health of children, I must make a protest about an ugly truth that prevails in America—I don’t know enough about other countries to comment about them. We talk so much about choices, especially encouraging parents and children to make them heal MORE

Hearty soup comes to the rescue.  Homemade soup I'm not so good at but improving.  I am more successful at finding tasty additions for canned soup,  Last night I added some leftover pork roast to Campbell's Chunky Vegetable soup.  Very tasty and filling it was, too. It is interesting… MORE
