  • When we think of soup we think of cold winter nights. A big pot of chili simmering for hours on the stove or maybe gallons of chicken noodle to “cure what ails ya.”

    For hundreds of years, people around the world eat certain soups in the summer to cool down and replenish nutrients zapped away by the summer heat.

    Some soups are cold like gazpacho and melon soup, others are served warm or room temperature like summer minestrone.

  • My dad was not always “king of the grill.” My brother and I endured many years of waiting patiently for the coals to turn gray, only to receive the charred remains of a once perfect handmade hamburger. We referred to these masterpieces as “hockey pucks.“ Hot dogs, bratwurst, steaks, all suffered the same fate.

    Apparently several years, and moving to Florida have improved his grill skills. No longer do I hear “Taps” being played in the background when my Dad says dinner is ready.
