    Springtime holiday dishes

    Within the span of one month, our neighborhood got two new residents. My family moved in just weeks before my next-door neighbor, Jeannette, did. Besides being a nice neighbor, Jeannette is a wonderful artist who shares her talents with many of us each week at art class. She’s a patient teacher and a gracious lady. I couldn’t have asked for a better neighbor, even if she were Mr. Rogers.


    Dress up your salads

    Has this winter made you grow as a person? Now that it’s spring, do you feel there is more of you to love? And are you not loving this development? Feel like the words pleasingly plump, zaftig and Rubenesque are getting a little too personally descriptive? Clearly, this is the season for big salads, not big buns. We needed some of those comforting winter carbs that gave us energy to shovel that snow, but spring and summer call for salads.

    Let chili chase the chilly

    North America shivers in an Arctic freeze….biting, bitterly cold breezes….brutal, potential, record-breaking low temperatures….Polar Vortex - that arctic cyclone that’s swept down from the North Pole ….what’s next? It’s been so cold in Pennsylvania this winter that I’m surprised that Phil even ventured out to check his shadow this week. Olympic Alert: It’s warmer in Sochi!


    Warm up from winter with homemade chili

    North America shivers in an Arctic freeze….biting, bitterly cold breezes….brutal, potential, record-breaking low temperatures….Polar Vortex– that arctic cyclone that’s swept down from the North Pole ….what’s next? Frost Quakes? They did happen in Ontario, Canada, on Christmas Eve. Apparently, some kids there thought that the loud snap sounds and the shakes were reindeer on the roof. Closer to home, parts of Ohio experienced Frost Quakes in 2011. It’s winter!


    Apple cheesecake

    The apple, the original forbidden fruit, was the choice fruit in the Garden of Eden. There are more than 7,500 varieties of apples grown in the world today. Eve ate one of them.


    A taste of success
