Every so often, my husband asks, "Are you in the mood for Chinese food?" The answer is always an emphatic no. I just never have been that into Chinese food. I love meat. I love rice. I love vegetables. But the heaviness of the sauce and saltiness of a typical Chinese t...

Tis the season! If you are a gardening hobbyist in the Midwest, odds are you are flush with zucchini right about now. But as a student exclaimed the other day, "I can't eat another zoodle."

One of my favorite things about summer is grilling. It's so easy to throw something on the grill, add some seasoning and requires little cleanup. That's my kind of dinner. Unfortunately about two weeks into the warm temperatures my husband is already saying "chicken......

For ice cream! Warning, this recipe is GOOD! Last week my husband abruptly told me that he was cutting chocolate from his diet. After the initial panic set in (does this mean I have to be the supportive spouse and do the same?!) I decided that it's probably for the bes...
