  • Easy recipes make tailgating season more fun

    Tailgating season means football, friends, and good food.

    Are you looking to bring something different this year? I have a few tips to get you started and the rest is left to your imagination.

    A lot of people struggle with how to keep the food warm in the colder temperatures. The slow cooker will keep most things warm for a couple of hours even after you unplug it.

  • Nothing sad about going to Heaven

    The message was as simple as it was stark: “Cancel this subscription, please. I’m going to Heaven.”

    That message came to me last week on a subscription renewal form, one of thousands upon thousands we mail out each year, usually with nothing more in return than a check or credit card number.
