How can ancient Greek and Hebrew thinking help us understand why our friends who support other political candidates see things so differently from us?
I have always loved Thanksgiving. I love that it is a holiday built around a full table and homemade treats. I love the recipes handed down on index cards that only get made once a year and traditions that bring back childhood memories and the chance to use linen napkins and the idea that si…
Due to the pandemic, my morning commute is limited to just two days per week for now. Not limited, however, are the interesting sights and encounters along the interstate.
The holidays can be stressful, so take the pressure down a notch and feed and entertain with a decorative cheese platter. Cheese is a perfect accompaniment to cocktails, an inviting appetizer or, heck, a casual help-yourself dinner. And with a little thought, a cheese board can take center s…
