It's Christmas Eve and I'm gearing up to finish my New Year's cards and bake some cookies to take to my mom's for Christmas Day tomorrow. But as a Happy Holidays to everyone, I thought I'd share some easy, fun holiday recipes from past posts, including Christmas Bison Chili, Irish Whiskey Cake, Easy New Year's Eve...

Who feels like cooking when you’re sick and tired?

I've been sick since Thanksgiving. The usual winter head and chest cold that it seems everyone is suffering with right now. Lousy time for it, with the holidays bearing down. There are gifts to buy, cards to address, meals to plan. Who has the energy? I don't. Not after working all week. Just trying to sit... Continue Reading →

Really. Anyway - more later on Barack Obama and his Whistle Stop Tour through my hometown two days ago - Go... Continue Reading →

No. 10 Pot Pie Comfort

Cold, lean and on-edge. Time for Comfort Food. I suppose it's time to get back to some foodchat. I've been spouting off about the newspaper business (hiring, anyone?) and the DTV revolution, which, by the way, saw a bump in the road last week when the feds ran out of money for those government-sponsored discount...
