Potato & Bread Dressing

Potato & Bread Dressing

Your senses have a fabulous way of erasing the years.  Listening to music from your high school or university days has the power to transport you back in time.  The same is true for smell and taste.  You cannot sniff the heavenly aroma of  spiced apple cider and not think of Thanksgiving and  Christmas. What about the taste of eggnog, shortbread cookies or cranberries...the same thing. One of the ultimate time erasing tastes and smells for me, is that of homemade dressing.   I cannot smell … [Read more...]

I knew I did not want another credit card, but had a few … [Read more...]

Do you Crave More?

Crave More

We are not our parents and grandparents.  Sure, in many ways, we are a reflection of them, but we are also different.  In no place is this more evident than in our food choices.   When I was growing up we had meat, potatoes, vegetables and the occasional dessert.  School lunches were peanut butter and jam or tuna sandwiches. I remember the first time I had spaghetti; it was with a canned sauce and I was thinking, wow, this is exotic! Maybe it was just me, but other than a canned spaghetti … [Read more...]

The exact reason behind the trip was all a bit clandestine.  I was only told PC® was working on something new and exciting and I was invited to attend an Exclusive Sneak Peek.  This only added to the … [Read more...]
