    Cool off by sipping summertime drinks

    No matter what you are doing for summer fun or even summer work, you’re bound to get thirsty and want to take a little break. I think I am addicted to ice, whether it be cubes or crushed. I love a drink in a glass that’s filled with ice. And I also have favorite glasses that I use ...

    National Iced Tea Day

    It’s never going to be a major holiday, but June 10 is National Iced Tea Day. People everywhere seem to enjoy a glass of iced tea during the summer days. I do, too, as long as it is decaf. Also, I used to make sun tea by placing a glass jar of water and tea bags out in the sun to brew. But...

    Have a chocolate milkshake

    Since most people love chocolate, I thought it would be fun to share some chocolate milkshake recipes. I like to have a thick milkshake made with real ice cream, and I do admit that I am much more likely to get or make a banana, strawberry or pineapple shake than a chocolate one. But this is about...

    Golden sweet caramel corn

    Even though I can make caramel corn that is practically addicting, whenever I stroll along Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey, I always have to stop in one of the candy shops to buy a box of caramel corn. You can see them make it in the window and they keep it warm and crunchy. But of course, ...

    For tri-tip fans

    Years ago, I was convinced that I did not like tri-tip roasts. But that was before I had them cooked the right way. (I say right way only to indicate my own personal preferences, which is moist and rare on the inside and slightly charred and well seasoned on the outside.) Tri-tips can be sliced ...

    Shrimp have their own day

    Many of us think of Cinco de Mayo when the month of May rolls around and it is an excellent holiday to celebrate. But did you know that May 10 is National Shrimp Day? I am not sure why it is in May, as there is a National Shrimp Festival every year in October. But that’s okay, those of us...

    Happy to see rhubarb

    It is rhubarb season now, but every year that I am able to see my youngest son at Christmas time (his birthday is December 23), I kick myself for forgetting to can or freeze some fresh rhubarb. Even when he was a child, he much preferred a rhubarb pie to a traditional birthday cake. But do you think...

    Sprouting up for health

    For many years, I have been a fan of just about any kind of sprouted legume or grain, especially alfalfa. One of my favorite meals (tabbouleh and falafel in pita bread, with sprouts and yogurt) goes back decades and I never tire of it. Well, if I had to eat it every day, there is no doubt I’...

    Everybody loves salsa

    Of course, we all love salsa any time of year, so we are not limited by weather. Served with a variety of tortilla chips, it is hard to stay away from the salsa bowl. Everyone seems to have a favorite recipe for making their own salsa. Some recipes call for fruit, such as mangoes, pineapple, peaches...
