Who can resist California? Crazy traffic. Cool people. Sun. Ocean. Food and Wine. Maybe a star or two? It’s a spectacular treat to book a trip to the sunny coast. I used to visit more regularly, but it’s been two years since my last visit….too long. The last time I visited was during August 2015, the […]
It’s apple season in the Midwest and many parts of the USA. The trees are loaded with fruit.

This past week was crazier than usual…for me and everyone else, I’m sure! The holidays are upon us and it’s go-go-go! But last week I found myself battling one of those nasty-just-want-to-be-in-bed colds. I didn’t feel like doing anything, least of all eating or cooking.
