The truth about the Triple Crown


Witnessing the wonder of fatherhood

I remember as if it were yesterday.


Poppers for Papa

Fire up the grill! It’s Father’s Day. What does a hungry dad want to eat on his special day? Perhaps ribs, wings, kabobs, steak or burgers will be on his menu. No doubt his feast will include a variety of barbecued beasts. Whatever - the day calls for strictly manfood. That’s what’s cooking for dear old dad.

I’m often at the weddings of total strangers, but before you think “Wedding Crasher,” let me explain: My husband is a retired judge of the Superior Court of New Jersey, and is, therefore, authorized to officiate at weddings. And as “Mrs. Judge,” I’m often invited to be with him. I seldom decline.

A treat from Texas

With the months of May and June come graduations, weddings, birthdays, and… summer heat. There’s always some kind of celebration that calls for cake — especially chocolate cake. But no one wants to hang out in the kitchen for too long now. What better way to celebrate an occasion than with a dense, rich, moist cake topped with a velvety-smooth chocolate icing. Decadence — your name is Texas Chocolate Sheet Cake.
