Spring unsprung and a sick son (bad cough), yet doing our best to keep chins up. Good thing we Minnesotans are hardy, yah, otherwise we might complain or something. Ahem. I’ll stick to the highlights. Saturday night, John and I attended a fundraiser. Wha? Alright, I admit the term fundraiser doesn’t usually conjure images of…

Fava beans. Love them. Hardly ever see them in stores ’round these parts, but scored some today at Lakewinds Natural Foods (lovely, lovely store) in Chanhassen. They’re a major pain to deal with (shell, blanch, peel, then cook), but so worth it in the end – bright green, tender, nutty, sweet. Just…yum. Check out this…

Halloo! Still alive here! Sorry to be away for so long, I can’t even totally blame it on being out of town since I’ve been back since Monday. (Oops.) John and I snuck away to Big Sur for a long weekend, to celebrate his birthday, and had ourselves a grand old time. What a scene,…

Happy Birthday John! OK, it’s a couple of days early, but I won’t be able to blog on the actual big day so… Consider this post a free pass to eat a disgusting amount of chocolate, and oh! Perhaps some prepared foods if we can put our hands on something worthy (that’s his thing, prepared…

As I slowly blinked awake this morning, a sunshine song came to my lips. I sleepily hummed and sang it a bit as I shuffled around for my slippers… Then I stopped short, as it dawned on me…what the heck song is this? Good Lord, am I singing a Chipmunks’ song? (I can’t stand The…

Is it…Spring? Dare I say the word? Oh, it’s still colder than a witches you-know-what out there, brrr. But the snow-rain mix has ceased, the sun has peeked out, and the forecast is for sunshine! Sweet, warm, sunshine, well into the week. I think we may have had our last snowstorm. I think I may…

Such a pretty, gray day. I just love snow, ice, freezing rain, slush, and gusting winds in April. Refreshing! Plus, it’s so great for the hair, shoes, and spirit. Yeah. Actually, it is good for the spirit…to get the giggles. Which is exactly what happened last night, after another amazing performance of Jersey Boys, when…

This month’s Fitness Magazine has a candid, interesting article about the rather wise and balanced health habits of…Condoleeza Rice?! Hey, I’m no fan politically (to say the least), but she’s definitely an example of a busy woman, and gets credit for allowing her workout to be photographed (egads), as well as for sharing insights into…

I’d declare tomorrow night Soup Night, what with another *%^&ing snowstorm coming and all, but instead my mom and I are off to see Jersey Boys. I couldn’t help but think as I watched last week, my mom must see this. So she is. Or will be… Can’t wait! But for any of you who…

When I’m not hungry, I don’t cook. And even when I am hungry, I don’t cook what I’m not hungry for. Make sense? It leads me to believe that those of us who love to cook and think and talk and write about food tend to be the hungrier ones, the ones with Appetites. Maybe…
