Summer-time always brings the desire for lighter fares – more salads, light pasta and fish, less red meat, soup and comfort food. I also tend to drink more wine in the summer. There is something so wonderful about a refreshing glass to be enjoyed outside, perhaps with a well-prepared meal. [...]

I’ve always loved the idea of cross-country train travel. From a train, one can really watch America unfold: the plains becoming mountains becoming desert, the wide open expanses interrupted only occasionally by towns or ranches.

Bear hugging logs certainly was not my idea of graceful. Squeezing my arms and thighs together around two logs, I gingerly stepped onto the next foothold. “Deep breath,” I said to myself. Next log, next step, next log, next step and I pulled my way up onto the platform. “Who [...]
