You may think of Texas or California or Florida as the prime growers of watermelon – and you may be right regarding volume. But, where I grew up in the Midwest, the best melons came from Sand Prairie.

Did you know there were sand dunes in Minnesota? A whole prairie full?

The Kellogg Watermelon Festival is still one of …

We love making giant stuffed burgers….. and giant stuffed cheeseburgers.

I think it started when we stopped eating hamburgers on buns..

We can’t get buns here, and, as wonderful as French breads are, there really isn’t a substitute for a hamburger bun. They come close….. but not quite.

Besides, big stuffed burgers are fun.

You can fill them with lots …

Do you own a set of cookware?

Or do you have an eclectic collection of mismatched pots and pans?

I have both….

My first set of cookware came with my first husband and was a wonderful ‘Country Brown’ non-stick set that I loved. Sadly, it was as short-lived as the marriage.

My second set came after my second (and current) …

I remember going to a family reunion in the 80’s…..

Family reunions were a summer staple when I was growing up. There would be my mother’s mother’s family reunion, my mother’s father’s family reunion, my father’s mother’s…… You get the idea, Regardless of which ‘side’ was holding the reunion, it was always held in a park, there were always lots …

There is nothing better at the end of a hot, busy day than a meal that requires absolutely no cooking at all.

No, I’m not talking about a sandwich eaten in front of the TV or takeout delivered to your door.

I’m talking about a simple, fresh salad, tossed and served with a chilled rosé, eaten while watching the sun …

Over the course of the next 10 years or so, I’ll be converting the older recipes to the new format.

I’ll be doing my favorites first.

I have always loved scallops, but they are a rare treat for us as they are expensive.

It’s also one of the few fish / seafood that I buy frozen. I don’t often see …

Last week there were health warnings coming at me from the internet, my phone, and the news about the ‘canicule‘ or heatwave.

Temperatures were expected to top 40C (104F) which they did.

By the weekend it had cooled down to a pleasant 30C (86F).

This week is just as hot chez nous, but either no one else …

I hate new stuff.

Actually, I love new stuff if I initiate it

I very much hate new stuff that is thrust upon me.

More about that later…. First – the pork.

I have become so accustomed to pork tenderloins weighing around 14oz (420gr) that it never occurred to me that the pork from our new butcher might be different. …

We all know that I can’t leave a recipe or idea as is.

Tampering, modifying, playing with…. all must be done.

I have always loved Taco Salads, but, while there is an underlying theme with all (or most) taco salads, they are not the same.

Except for that taco shell bowl thing in the US – that seems to be …
