My grandmother was an amazing, vivacious, full-of-life woman who loved days at the beach, fresh corn bought from farms in the summer (long before it was en vogue again to do so) and green grapes.

Things change so quickly. When I was a young child, we had a television. It was a really big deal when my grandmother and I went shopping for a VCR for my grandfather … and that wasn’t a small, inexpensive present. Back then, there was no on-demand, no home computer, no iPods. Then, all of […]

It’s Tuesday afternoon and I am sitting in my home office, with The Beach Boys’ Sounds Of Summer playing in the background. Outside my open windows is brilliant blue sky, bright sunlight and the sound of laughing children. It’s enough to make you throw open your arms and yell Welcome, springtime. This is weather that […]

Some issues of magazines are just blow-you-over good. The 2008 Cookies issue of Fine Cooking is like that. Another 2008 goodie? The November 2008 issue of Everyday Food. I can’t tell you how many great recipes I have made from that issue. These enchiladas are among my favorites — flavorful, creamy, cheesy and spicy (want […]
