  • Homemade Granola: Eat a Better Breakfast …

    My mother – who was not kitchen-friendly – never prepared such delightful breakfast treats as pancakes, waffles or French toast. Even so, she was ahead of her time when it came to making healthy, simple breakfasts. She served things like broiled grapefruit, stewed prunes, soft-boiled eggs on toast, and oatmeal with a pat of butter [...]

    The Empty Lands

    Have you ever heard of the Highland Clearances? I hadn’t, until I moved here. A terrible time in Scottish history, Highlanders in the 1800s were thought to be less than their ‘betters’ in England, even considered sub-human – and then those supposed ‘betters’ decided to rid themselves of those who stood in the way of [...]

    Dyeing with Mushrooms: Art, Craft & Science

PHOTO: Jack-O-Lantern mushrooms are some of Sherri Scott’s favorite fungi to use for dye. They can produce vibrant purples and lavenders with the right [...]

    Lovely Lemon-Ginger Curd: Despite Potential Steam Burns and Curdled Curd, it’s Worth it

    I feel so fortunate that although I over-pruned my two lemon trees two years ago, they managed to remain alive and even produced some lemons. That’s great, because lemon curd is one of my favorite things to make, eat and give away. It’s delicious on scones, muffins and toast, but one of my favorite things [...]

    Tai Chi: A Chinese Secret to Better Health

    In the ancient Chinese medical text entitled the “Huang Di Nei Jing” (circa 200BC) it was said that giving someone medicine after they became sick was like digging a well after they became thirsty or going to war and then making weapons. The idea was that it was easier to prevent illness rather than treat [...]

    I thought I would address men’s fashion for a change, and talk about suits.  And yes, these guidelines will apply to women’s suits as well.
