Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. Certainly, there's the
food. But the food is simply a vehicle for bringing us together with family and friends to mark the accomplishments and trials of the year, to remember those that have touched our lives and to give thanks for all of it.

Pickle it and I'll eat it! I'm not just talking about the wonderful array of cucumber pickles out there, though I love them all.
Pickled eggs, the whole array of veggies and even those things with that big "ewww" factor, I love it.
I think the reason I love pickled food is tha

There are night's when you just feel like grazing. I actually love those evenings.We'll put out small plates of fruit, fresh and
pickled veggies, crackers and cheese. We'll throw in a movie and everyone chills, snacks and enjoys the flick.

Fall is clearly making its way into East-Central Illinois. The corn in the fields have turned brown and the soybeans are moving
from green to yellow. There's a chill in the morning air these days. We're harvesting the last of the produce from our garden as well. I always feel the that the

This is a wonderfully cool and refreshing soup that makes a fantastic starter for any summer meal and would be perfect as part of
a Labor Day barbecue or even desert! It's also incredibly easy to make.
This soup is lightly sweet with just a little bite of heat from some jalapeño. The co

We are finally on the road! We were an hour late getting started Thursday morning, but managed to miss all but a few sprinkles of the forecast thunderstorms. I'll take that trade-off.
We traveled across most of Illinois on I-72 before picking up U.S. 36 to go across Missouri. U.S. 36 was a su

We spent most of the July 4th weekend prepping four our summer adventure, packing up camping gear, an oil change for my bike, cutting our acre of yard with the hope that we don't return to a jungle.
I was supposed to do tire changes as well, but the tires haven't shown up yet. UPS promises th

Nancy is a fiend for fresh peaches. So, when we got our weekly email from the Urbana Market on the Square said that the first of the fresh peaches would be in last Saturday, she could hardly wait. I thought
we were going to be camping out in the parking lot like teenagers trying to get Lady

First off, apologies to everyone, I meant to post this early this morning, but had an epic bogger fail and had to get to work before I could finish it.
I was very excited when I saw this recipe in the May issue of Bon Appetit. I love those spicy veggie mixes you can get at most groceries, but
