Well, my friends, I have made it through the year of "Firsts". As of July 13th, one full year has passed since my Love passed away. I was able to survive my "First" night sleeping without him, my "First" morning alone, our "First" wedding anniversary apart,

Dear Friends and Family,
You will never know how much you have helped to lift my heart.

At the end of every phone conversation, say, "I love you".
At the end of every letter, note, honey to do list, say, "I love you"

My Dearest friend and Husband, what happened my love??? The morning was perfect! We had the house to ourselves, the weather was lovely, the humming birds seemed extra busy, your back seemed to be a little kinder to you, even after doing that wonderful job on

Occasionally the question "How do I make a bread starter?" pops up on the "Buzz". Here are some instructions from someone who has been using sourdough starters for 20 years, ME :o)
I have 2 starters in my refrigerator at all times. One is a starter that my BIL brought back…

Back in January I wrote a blog "The Sweetest Part of the Lobster", recounting bits and pieces of my family's lineage. Since that time I have learned a bit more and feel the need to correct a few points, not that it makes much difference in the big scheme
of things, but working my…

Let's talk food safety.
I am always a little puzzeled by the number of posts that ask the question, "I left __________ out on the counter overnight, is it still good to eat or should I toss it?" I am even more puzzeled by the number of responses stating things like "If it smells

Over the past few years, I have done a lot of thinking about the obesity problems in our country. Because of the business that I am in, I am an assistant manager in our local school kitchen, public schools have come under fire for a large part of this problem. Although the public school…
