Are you struggling for a fresh idea on what to serve for dinner tonight or breakfast tomorrow?  Well, why don’t we step back in time and see what’s cookin’!

Of all the fabulous wholesome food my Grandma made for us, the vitamins and supplements, the homemade whole wheat bread, fresh cow’s milk…I must confess that two of her favorite staples were SPAM and Dinty Moore Beef Stew.  After all this time, now that I’ve seen this ad, I know now that my Grandfather wasn’t a naturally jovial man – IT WAS THE SPAM!

For many Americans, Japanese food means sushi, which is now so familiar that it's available at many grocery store delis.

But there's a lot more to Japanese cooking than spicy tuna rolls.

At Cooking in Athens, a new series of kitchen courses hosted by Kim Jordan, you’ll learn to create dishes such as hijiki salad with miso-ponzu dressing, miso soup, dashi soup stock made with kombu and bonito flakes, steam buns made with either ground pork or a sweet bean filling, nabe hot pot soup and rice balls.

I am definitely fortunate that I have a husband and a son that aren’t fussy eaters. As much as I enjoy trying recipes, combining flavors and experimenting with foods and products new to me their ambitious appetites make my hobby exciting, not frustrating. Whether I’ve followed a recipe or created a dish on my own the three of us take a vote on if it’s a “keeper” or a “one hit morsel.”

It is popular belief that Super Bowl Sunday is the second biggest food consumption day of the year – second only to the holy grail of food holidays – Thanksgiving.

For many, the Super Bowl is a religious experience. It is the finale after many months of football - one final game to crown the true champion. No matter what team you root for, the Super Bowl is something to celebrate during the cold, nasty winter months.
