Chicago food writer and blogger Julie Ohara from A Mingling of Tastes came up with a great idea to honor Gourmet magazine. I hear there are few other bloggers hosting a tribute to Gourmet. I grew up on Gourmet. My mom bought it and for years I’ve ripped out recipes and saved them. This menu […]

Healthier Crumb Topped Blueberry Muffins


I wrote this recipe last year for Hannaford’s fresh.  I like the normal, not mammoth, size of these muffins.  Between the oats and the blueberries, you are looking at a health boosting treat, although if you really want to change your diet you can find out the Nutrisystem cost online which is perfect to keep […]

My long time friend Adam, whom I met while living in Washington, D.C. is a restaurant critic and food writer for New York magazine.  I have shared some wonderful meals with Adam and he taught me how to order sushi. He also makes a killer Chinese sesame noodle dish (we’ll have to talk him out of the recipe). As a child, […]
