Birthday weekend!

Well, there's really not a lot to celebrate about turning 53-- but as my doctor says, until we come up with an alternative to aging, we can do it gracefully, and that is what I'm striving for.

What's really something to celebrate, though, is that this birthday also marks an astounding 17 years since I kicked the nicotine habit for good. I have a lot of friends who helped me through that process, and many of them have children younger than my successful quit... I still am amazed I was able to do it, and am always more than happy to talk to anyone who's considering quitting smoking. It truly is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Feel free any time to reach out. Different things work for different people, so if I can't help, maybe I can put you in touch with someone who can.

Stay warm if you're under the Polar Vortex; we've had a few cold nights, but it's shaping up to be a beautiful weekend. Cook something tasty!

This time of year, food banks around the country often struggle to keep their shelves stocked. If you have the wherewithall, put a few extra cans of food in your shopping cart this weekend and make a donation to your local food bank. Enjoy this week's recipes, share them with family and friends, and, as always, let me know what's on your mind. Have a great weekend.

Best regards,

Chicken with Bacon and Tomato Sauce

Chicken with Bacon and

Creole Tomato Sauce

This is an easy weeknight recipe, dreaming of summer tomatoes in the midst of this cold weather. Substitute top quality canned tomatoes, or if your market carries them, sweet cherry tomatoes, halved. Cook it a pretend it's summer.
