Ovation: App-Controlled Smart Bartending!
01/08/2014 12:09:44 PM
I like to think that I’m reasonably good in the kitchen. I can prepare the most complicated dishes and back any number of desserts with a reasonable amount of success as long as I have a recipe to follow. Having reliable instructions to follow gives me enough confidence to tackle r..

I’m not one for making New Year’s Resolutions. I guess I’ve made enough of them in my life to realize that they’re just not for me. The only thing worse than not doing something? … promising yourself that you’ll do it and THEN not doing it. This..

I’ve always enjoyed a glass of cold champagne but, until recently, I thought it was only for special occasions. In college I would treat myself and my friends to a bottle of a special almond-flavored champagne that one could purchase from the cooler in the back of the local drug store.&n..

It Often Takes a Survivor To Help Other Survivors
12/20/2013 21:42:46 PM
It is interesting that a fellow blogger who writes warm, from the heart articles, is a woman endured a difficult childhood in the foster care system after a rape at age 7. Then, I realized that it is precisely because she is a survivor of sexual abuse that her passion in life is to help..

Yes, I know. It's been reviewed to within an inch of its life, by both local and national media. I reviewed it myself previously (here).

Holidays, or so we’ve been led to believe, are times of fun, family bonding and for making memories that we will cherish through all our years. But it doesn’t always work out that way because some guests or family members just don’t observe the protocol that dictates respectful int..
Tomato and crispy prosciutto bruschetta
11/19/2013 19:39:11 PM
I like to cook Italian food, which is good because I'm married to a Sicilian and a favorite appetizer of ours is bruschetta. Since this is a 'raw' dish I don't like to add chopped garlic into the tomato mixture because to bite down on raw garlic is too overpowering and takes away the swee..
