  • Dish gremlins, silverware hobgoblins and lint trap trolls

    We all know the story of the elves and the shoe cobbler. The elves would visit the shoe maker after he went to bed. The next morning, he would awaken to dozens of pairs of shoes made by the elves.
    His labors were lightened by the kindness and thoughtfulness of his nighttime visitors.
    I have nocturnal visitations as well. Unfortunately, mine seem bent on undoing all my efforts of the day plus adding a touch of mayhem. Allow me to introduce Dish Gremlins, Silverware Hobgoblins and Lint Trap Trolls.

  • At the farmers market: cauliflower

    The growing season is winding down, but the produce section of the market still has a lot of fresh produce available. One that you might not associate with fall is cauliflower.
    Cauliflower is packed full of nutrients and has very few calories. In fact, a half-cup serving of cauliflower contains an entire day’s dose of vitamin C and only 25 calories. Cauliflower also provides 10 percent of your daily folate needs and 8 percent of your dietary fiber requirements. It is very low in sodium and has no fat or cholesterol.
