A brief tale of survival in southeast Utah, a great pot roast that marinates for three days, and special usage of the 35th most common word in the English language.
Ruminations from my back porch — millennial slang, 60s slang, a great celery seed salad dressing, and Mainers are getting psyched to see Troy Jackson run for Governor in 2018.
Leaving New Mexico… not as easy as it could’ve been. And some thoughts on those who leave us. Simple advice: don’t stay too long at the fair.
Super delicious repost of one of my top favorite dishes – a bit of work with a yuuuge payoff.
A few hours in Branson, Colorado, a tiny village on the High Plains, and I connect with an extraordinary horsewoman and fellow-writer.
Great heart-healthy mashed potatoes this week – no dairy or butter or other fatty stuff like that. Once again, Mediterranean cuisine has the answer (it’s actually French, but from Provence, which is sort of close to the Mediterranean). Not a lot to laugh at because I’m cranky with a head cold and sore shoulder. Grrrr.
Is Maine secession a possibility? As in, joining Canada? Fun to play with the idea… also a collective child’s memory of Christmas from the 1950s… (repost)
Great gluten-free cookies! And a pretty Grinch-worthy good-bye this year to Christmas as we know and love it.
Baked baby Brussels sprouts made easy and tasty. Also, introducing Mussel Ridge Market in Spruce Head, and some random bits of insight and humor.
It takes balls to do the holidays in style. Bourbon balls, that is. Also, happy to say my novels are all now in the Rockland Public Library – thanks, Amy Levine!
