Perfect Potatoes a.k.a. Sentimental Spuds

As a writer, I rely heavily on my memory to help me make connections between food, my past and my heritage.  Or maybe it’s more likely that I depend on food to help me make connections between my memories, my heritage and the present.  What I am sure of is that food memories are powerful.    Whether the memory is triggered by sight, smell, feel or taste, it can be as strong as a lightening bolt and jar a memory that may have been hidden for years....more

  What does a food blogger do when she has lost her appetite for food?This puts what Grant Achatz went through in a whole new perspective - it is hard to eat when you are not hungry and without a desire to be fed.  Imagine suffering mouth cancer and going through intensive treatments that physically and emotionally weigh you down but still having to work.  And that work is not just your livelihood but other's as well?AND IT IS FOOD........more

The Little Girl Who Wanted to Be a Mommy: A Modern Fairy Tale

Today we celebrated Amy’s birthday even though her birthday was a week ago.  Our family members could coordinate and harmonize their calendars better today than last Sunday.  A celebration can take place anytime plus I firmly ascribe to the ‘birthday zone”  theory.  A birthday is really too special to confine the revelry to just one day....more

Inspiring with Food

But kids are notorious for being "picky," "difficult" and "plain." And truth be told, my kids have thus far been truly amazing little eaters. My first has very openly tasted foods most of her life, leaning towards a less-interested stage when she hit four years of age, but nonetheless, discovering for herself what she truly enjoys and absolutely detests. ...more

Getting Healthy

If I had it my way, my diet would consist of fruits, vegetables, chicken (grilled or baked), seafood, water with 3 slices of lemon, and various nuts.  Man, that would be great! But, alas, I have 2 sons and a husband to feed, who enjoy more than the plethora of nuts and berries I like. Recently, I have started to change the foods we eat....more
