  • Start with a good breakfast

    Even though my last column was published the day after Christmas, I wrote it before the holiday.  Now that our celebration is over, I can relate details of how I spent my time with family. There was a splendid sunrise on Christmas morning.  If it had not been for my busy schedule, I would have […]

  • Apples, anyone?

    I can’t let October get away without featuring apple recipes.  I have collected them for years and have tried lots of them along the way.  Several years ago, a friend of mine called me the “apple lady” because she was fascinated with all the different things I made with them.  I used to spend a […]
