Kathryn’s Blog: A Taste of Home

I grew up in New Jersey and most of my life was structured a great deal around the awesome diners that Jersey is famous for.

Kathryn’s Blog: Rediscovering the Rutabaga

Always on the alert for things that have no cholesterol, I have rediscovered the rutabaga. The first time I had it was on Thanksgiving. It was boiled, mashed with butter & salt, and covered with turkey gravy! (It’s a cross of a turnip and a cabbage.) It was terrific. Now I’ve

Kathryn’s Blog: Treat Yourself

I often go to Sjolinds (pronounced shoe-lins) when I want to treat myself. When I saw this Torte on its pedestal it was such a work of art I just had to share it! Potatoes, ham, cheese, spinach, eggs and caramelized onions make up these lovely layers. Also there are
