Well we’re home; a little jet-lagged but home and sleeping in our own bed after a 24-hour travel day. I have to admit that the last leg of our journey was grueling in a very small puddle-jumper with about 35 teeny-tiny seats of which I’m convinced were made of concrete and wooden spikes; it felt […]

We’re here in Italy for the next 7 days; it felt as if we were coming home – that familiar feeling of seeing good friends, laughing and catching up and seeing the beautiful Villa Boccelli.

We’ve waited two years to bring bees to the Smith Bites Homestead – and yesterday our journey of helping to rebuild honeybees in our area began. A friend of ours came over and helped The Professor get them settled in; Keith has been a beekeeper for several years now and we’re grateful to have someone […]

A few weeks ago, The Professor and I headed up to Chicago and hung out in the lobby hoping to catch up with friends at the IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals) conference. It was nice to connect with people we haven’t seen for a while and finally meet those we’ve only ‘known’ online.

2013 was a big year travel year for The Professor and me; we began in March and didn’t stop until right before Thanksgiving. One of those trips involved getting in the car and heading East, making a loop up into upstate New York and back home again; it was a fun traveling in our own […]

You know I’m a former Seattle girl, yes? And while I’m now an Indiana girl, I still miss the Pacific Northwest – the mountains, the food scene, friends and family who still live there and yes, even the weather . . . okay, only sometimes the weather – because when the crystal-blue skies of summer […]

Last July, The Professor and I were on a business trip to the Salt Lake City area that also allowed us to visit family; we’re always looking for inexpensive ways to entertain ourselves and we discovered Salt Lake City has a gorgeous library where you can get lost for hours perusing books, viewing works of […]

Smith Bites will celebrate its 5-year anniversary in 2014 – and as I sit here this Sunday morning, snow coming down in big, fat, heavy, beautiful flakes – I am somewhat gobsmacked that nearly 5 years have passed. Completely gobsmacked.

The two-story white farm house is tucked away at the end of a winding gravel road; deer and other wildlife share the land with a couple of dogs and a few other homes along that road but here, life is tranquil and meditative. The front end of two old rusted trucks peer from the overgrown […]

The Professor and I were quite excited to see this little visitor to our gardens this week – a honeybee! When we first moved out to the country, honeybees were a common sighting; but after the first couple of years, they all disappeared and it’s a rare occurance indeed to see one – and when […]
