Notes from Steve

So this is coming out in print a couple of days past Christmas - right now I’m in the full-on throes of non-healthy meal planning right now. My friend Pam from AZ who is always trying to cook healthy posted a pic of a bowl of lobster bisque (lobster and...

Greg's Greetings

I hope everyone was able to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday. As I am sitting writing this article, my wife is busy baking kringla. (I think I am eating them as fast as she is baking them). Over the years she has been trying to perfect the recipe that her mom...
