We have all heard the expression, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” I’m convinced life hands us lemons every day. So make lemonade. Every day. In that expression, there are a million types of lemons and a million types of lemonade. Maybe the lemon life handed you today is that you broke your favorite […]

We have moved! We are officially residents of Seattle! I probably don’t have to tell you, but the last 2 months have been a bit chaotic. We’ve been wrapping things up at work, trying to sell the house, getting moved… you know the process. But we are here and marginally settled. And LOVING IT! I […]

Welcome

It’s a sweltering morning in Beltsville, Md., and I’m face-to-face with bee doom. Mark Dykes, a “Bee Squad coordinator” at the University of Maryland, shakes a Mason jar filled with buzzing honey bees that are coated with powdered sugar. The sugar loosens the grip of tiny Varroa mites, a parasite that plagues bees; as he […]

Now that summer’s here, you don’t want to leave food where it could spoil. For that reason, a lot of people put just about everything — even bananas — in the refrigerator. But there are some foods that should still not go in the fridge. A report from Food Network says for the best flavor many fresh foods should be left to ripen on the counter, not in the fridge. Food Network says to keep these foods out of the refrigerator: Melon: It won’t get sweet if left to ripen in the cold. However, once you slice it, then you should refrigerate it. Potatoes: They get starchy in the cold. A pantry is better, so long as you don’t forget they are there and let them grow roots and leaves. Coffee: It sucks up moisture and odors in the fridge, just like a box of baking soda. Yum. Onions: They get moldy and turn black quickly in the cold. Tomatoes: They lose their flavor in the cold, and if you refrigerate them when still green they will never ripen. Apples: They won’t ripen in the fridge (though it’s a great way to save fresh apples for months) Bananas: They quickly turn brown in the refrigerator, which actually is fine if you are making banana bread. Otherwise, it’s yucky. Food that gets stale quickly Then you have items that get stale faster in the refrigerator. They include… Bread, fresh rolls Muffins, Pastries: If you want Aunt Sophie to head home early from her visit, then go ahead and refrigerate the pastries and muffins you serve her for breakfast. Worst food to refrigerate Which leads to perhaps the worst food to refrigerate: Honey. It crystalizes if cold and is impossible to pour out of the container. But the good news is honey is a natural preservative, so it can last for years in your cupboard. If you don’t have air conditioning, and its 95 degrees in your home, you may want to put more things in the fridge just to prevent spoilage. But otherwise, a lot of items do better in the cabinet.

I remember glancing at the pre-op paperwork as I shuffled away from the registration desk. With my purse on one shoulder, hugging my marathon jacket to my chest, I read it more than once. Diagnosis: CARCINOMA IN SITU. I hadn’t heard anyone call my condition “carcinoma” before, and I knew what the word “carcinoma” meant. […]

CASCADE, Colo. — Just before the fork in the road that takes you up to Pikes Peak Highway is a pickle. And pickles on keychains, and pickles in jars. “I just thought pickles because my kids are athletes and I know pickle juice is good for them. And I also know it has electrolytes, so it’s good for anybody going up Pikes Peak Highway, for altitude sickness, it helps with nausea and headaches. So, really just kind of fell into it,” said Wendy Beisel, owner of The Pickle Shack. The Pickle Shack has been in business for nearly three years now, and their fan base is growing. “The best thing is the pickle lovers. Because they come in literally screaming, running, laughing. Just ‘pickles!’ They’re just so happy to be here,” Beisel said. But what if you don’t like pickles or pickled vegetables? Well, Beisel says she’s got you covered. “Like peaches and cobbler, butters, preserves, jellies, salsas, jerky, honey,” Beisel said. And if you find yourself in a little pickle, the Pickle Shack is there to help. “So many people came in looking for all the conveniences, a bathroom, a gas station, water, soda, information, ‘what else is there to do around here?’ So, I just thought why not put some information in an information station, so they can look for themselves and hopefully find what they need,” Beisel said. So, for a little shop, you could say it’s kind of a big ‘dill.’ “You know, I couldn’t ask for anything better. It’s the best business to have people love what you have in your store. They literally roll around on the floor, they have a lot of fun and that makes my job so much easier and more fun,” Beisel said.

Out the little window above the kitchen sink I watch traffic speed north and south on Clark Street.  No one stops. If someone slowed, pulled into our dirt driveway, knocked, I might get out of washing the dishes. Because mom’s wheelchair-bound, can’t answer the door very well.  “Are you gettin’ ’em clean?” she asks. My […]
