    Chicken Tikka Masala Indian Meal

    My husband introduced me to Indian food when we first started dating. It was love at first bite. I believe my first was The Clay Oven in Portland, Maine, soon followed by forays into Indian Row in New York City. When we moved to California, we went to Kulbir’s India Palace in Alameda faithfully for…

  • Cranberry Cheesecake

    Cranberry Cheesecake

    From the moment I took my first ever bite of a cheesecake, I was hooked for life. For the longest time, though, I always bought it, never made it from scratch here at home. It took a friend coming over and making one right in my kitchen before I realized how easy it is. Back…

    How to Make Homemade Pasta

    My daughter has been making homemade pasta with her Dad for as long as she remembers. Preparing meals is a family activity in our home.

We stopped eating wheat for…

    Coconuts made quite an impression on my husband and daughter when we visited the Philippines. My home has coconut trees growing right on our front yard. One Sunday morning a boy climbed one of the trees with a machete and carefully lowered bunches of coconuts down to our driveway. We drank fresh coconut juice and…

  • Read


    One of the most rewarding parts of my day is reading to my daughter at bedtime. I’ve been reading to her from the moment she was born. When she was a baby, the sound of my voice soothed her as I read her short poems and sang her songs. When she was a toddler exploring…

  • Play Music

    Go on, you know you want to. Just pick up a musical instrument and play it. If you don’t have an instrument, just sing. Or beatbox. Don’t worry if it’s not good enough for anyone else to hear. Just sing. Sing a song.

  • Take a walk

    Spring is just around the corner. The snow and ice is melting. The sun is shining brighter. This past weekend we took a 2-mile walk to the village and back. It was great to get some exercise, fresh air, sun and sightseeing at Camden Village. Come along with us.

The next morning he found that he missed another deer tick that had overnight lodged itself into his skin. What followed was…
