Wishing You a Beautiful Holiday

For pure holiday musical pleasure, nothing (to me at any rate) says ‘Merry Christmas’ better than listening to the glorious voice of Kathleen Battle sing carols.  So… have a very, very musical merry!

Lower Carb Mulled Holiday Wine

Nothing brings to life the holiday season for me like the smells of delicious things cooking and simmering. One of our family favorites is Mulled Wine, redolent of orange, apple, star anise, cinnamon, and clove. I made and bottled a big batch of it this year to send out to distant family and friends, from…

Their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor

They pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor so that we should all be free… it should be remembered every day, but most especially today. Read and be thankful. Happy Birthday America! The Declaration of Independence IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776. The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in…

Taste Like Green French Fries?

Heading into 2012 means shedding a few holiday pounds that Mike and I accumulated on the “experiment” (see his blog) we undertook. So for the next several weeks we will be trudging down the nutritional holy road of near-abstinence from carbs and total abstinence from that carbohydrate gateway drug, alcohol. It’s only day 5 and…

Craigie on Main's Fried Eggs – DIY

Absolutely great article in today’s Wall Street Journal Cooking and Eating section by Kitty Greenwald. I read it just after breakfast, when I was pleasantly full, and still it honestly made me want to get up and head back to the stove. Or book a flight to Boston and catch a cab to Cambridge to…

Dim Sum…and then some!

Forgive my lengthy absence from the blog desk. As those of you who also read Mike’s blog know, I’ve been up to my eyeballs for the last month finishing a couple of major business projects and wearing my SB Choral Society President and soprano-in-the-chorus hats getting our Verdi Requiem behind us (which, as he’s already…

Carbs and calories in your booze of choice

The Food Policy Institute at the Consumer Federation of America just published a report showing the amount of carbohydrate and the number of calories in the 26 best selling alcoholic beverages. The report is in chart form in pdf format. You can download it here. Put it on your refrigerator or keep it some place…

Comment screwup

I just sat down to deal with the 45 or so comments that have stacked up over the past few days and somehow deleted them.  The comment that was the top one on the list was a spam comment.  I thought I checked the box next to it, but somehow I checked the box (that…

A Plate of Christmas Joy!

We’re in Dallas with the Grandangels, who have kept me so busy that I haven’t had time to even think about blogging. Our youngest grandson, who is now 5, loves to help ‘Granny’ cook, so we busied ourselves two days before Christmas making sugar cookie dough. A half-recipe’s worth from Mark Bittman’s fabulous (must have)…

Jonny Bowden Draws Down on Diet Drinks

I just got an email from our good friend, Jonny Bowden, with a link to his latest exchange in an ongoing ‘dialog’ with Big Soda about the inherent health detriment of pushing diet sodas on the public as if they were health food. Some of you may be familiar with Jonny and may thus have…
