    Tortilla Soup

    The winter solstice, also known as midwinter, falls on the 21st of December this year. For those of us in the northern hemisphere, it is the day where we experience the shortest day coupled with the longest night. For many ancient cultures and some modern, this was a time of celebration. It’s a time to welcome warmth and cheerfulness during a season that may feel cold and dreary.  Continue Reading

    Smoothies instead of milkshakes

    One day this summer my youngest said to me, “I’m craving a milkshake.” I agreed that one did sound good on that relatively warm day. However, that is something we rarely purchase.

    Simple remedies to ease symptoms from wildfire smoke

    My home state, California, is currently experiencing multiple wildfires. Additionally, at this time, there are wildfires burning in other states and even other countries.

And you may not even see or smell smoke, but the particulate matter that is carried by the smoke can pose a health hazard. You may feel it in your eyes, sinuses or lungs.  Continue Reading
