    Satisfy your appetite with baked beans

    Recently on a trip that took me to Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia, I walked a small stretch of the Appalachian Trail. It made its way across the town and onto the towpath of an old canal toward faraway Maine. I learned that following the 2-inch-by-6-inch vertical rectangles that are painted white on trees, rocks and sign posts will keep you on the trail instead of lost in the woods. (I’m sharing this in case you are ever lost in the woods along the trail.)

    Stay cool this summer with icebox pie

    Too hot to turn on the oven? Understood. But if you’re craving something sweet that’s homemade, the high temperatures might be a real letdown. How can you have your cake and not heat it, too? Got it. “Bake” an icebox pie or cake. Assemble the ingredients, then refrigerate or freeze. Fresh berries in season now can help to make some delicious desserts for summer.
