  • Eat Well: Time to show your heart some love

    While love has its own day on the 14th, heart health is the main focus of February. American Heart Month is a time to show yourself the love.

  • Date night-friendly chicken that won't tie you to the stove

    Fifteen years ago, I made the first of what would become thousands of meals for my husband. Back then, it was our fifth date, and he was visiting my tiny Parisian apartment for the first time, where we planned an evening of binging on episodes of "Friends" on the VCR. For our date, I wanted to make something special but also simple. I didn't...

  • A carefree deviled egg you won't need to struggle over

    For me, it's just not a party without deviled eggs. Doesn't matter if it's a summer barbecue or a winter Super Bowl shindig. I need deviled eggs. And I know I am not alone! Which isn't to say it's always easy to make that happen. The last time I made them for whatever reason the eggs were a devil to peel. I tried all of my regular tricks. I...

  • Session beers: More flavor, but less buzz for the Super Bowl

    RICHMOND, Va. - When it comes to beer, Super Bowl Sunday is a marathon, not a sprint. So if you're hoping to sip craft brews throughout the game, you might consider more "sessionable" beers to keep yourself from passing out before halftime. These naturally lower-alcohol brews also get extra points for their ability to pair well with...

  • Drive-thru review: Get yourself over to Denny's for a skillet before they go bye-bye

    When I was growing up, I had a friend whose grandfather would take 25 different leftovers in unmarked, undated plastic containers, throw them into a big frying pan, toss in a handful of flour and some butter, and simmer the mess on low heat for about 30 minutes. It's still one of the more delicious things I've ever eaten. First, I'm shocked...

  • Colorado baker faces complaint for refusing anti-gay message

  • Turning bean burritos into a Super Bowl party finger food

    There is something magical about a burrito, that combination of crispy tortilla edges that turn doughy soft at the center, all concealing a delicious blend of beans and meat and melted cheese. Usually, a burrito makes a meal. But for my Super Bowl party, I decided to turn the dish into a finger food. Using smaller flour tortillas, I rolled up...

  • On Food: Go online to discover unusual and delicious foods

    In December I gave myself a gift: I bought a subscription to "The Rosengarten Report." Who is Rosengarten and why would you care about what he has to report? I'm talking about David Rosengarten who achieved fame as a TV chef on the Food Network starting in 1994. His show, "Taste," was hilarious. He explored foods, dishes and beverages. I...
