by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 23rd, 2007| Desserts, Recipes
Fondue is one of my favorite dishes to make.  Of course, if I make a cheese fondue, it's not very popular with the kids.  That is saved for a grown-ups only night.  A bottle of wine, a plate of veggies and bread, there's not much more that we need.

by TK July 20th, 2007| Recipes, Salads
Coleslaw is one of those crazy dishes that has about a thousand different variations. Some people make it with mayo. Some with vinegar. Sometimes it is sweet. Sometimes it is sour.

The girls' sleepover was a huge success the other night.  My friend arrived at 6:00, and we enjoyed a yummy dinner of salad on my deck.  It could have been a very leisurely dinner, except that a downpour arrived at the end of the meal, quickening our return to the
