Flower Garden Tips

By Marsha Fottler – It’s that time. Clean those garden tools and get ready to purchase, plant, weed, feed, mulch and then sit back and admire your early summer flower garden. As every gardener knows, a successful garden is an ever evolving thing of beauty and personal expression of aesthetic. A plant once installed doesn’t have to stay in that spot forever. Keep you options open. What doesn’t flourish in one spot in...

New Kitchen Gadgets To Make Summer Foods Glamorous

By Steven V. Philips – Being a talented eater rather than a talented cook, I’m happy with the fruits, salads and sandwiches of summer because those I can assemble into what looks like a meal and tastes pretty good too. Even I can’t do much to ruin a farm-stand cucumber or heirloom tomato still warm from the vine in the garden.

A puppet asked several pre-K kids the perennial question: What do you want to be when you grow up? To my astonishment, the first girl replied, “I want to own a restaurant.” Social critic William Deresiewicz writing in the New York Times claimed that food/cooking has displaced the arts and literature as...

Spring and Summer Salads Take the Spotlight

By Chef Judi Gallagher – When I was a growing up, my mom served a salad every night with dinner. Perhaps a wedge of iceberg with homemade Russian dressing or a composed salad with spears of cucumbers and carrots slices. Or my favorite, a chopped salad of green cabbage, diced cucumbers and pickled herring. Salads set the tone for any meal and ideally should reflect the season with garden fresh fruits and vegetables.
