The Professor and I were in New Orleans last week – it was the first time either of us had visited this fabulous city and by the end of the week, we were both smitten. The weather was perfect – sunny and warm with a gentle breeze; there is so much to see and do […]

It’s a gray day here in the Midwest and I find myself pulling inward, desiring to get quiet and create – to write, to try a new recipe, to paint a wall. It’s hard work as I’m a perfectionist, always picking apart my work, always comparing, always believing someone else can do it better – […]

I didn’t understand the ‘macaron craze’ for a very long time – didn’t quite get the obsession of a baked meringue cookie with, what I thought, was a filling similar to an oreo cookie. Then a few years ago on our way home from a trip to Italy, we traveled through the Charles de Gaulle […]

I’m celebrating this guy today – it’s his birthday and I honestly don’t know what I did to have this man as my life partner but I know I’m blessed beyond measure. My partner in business and in life, he’s my confidant and my best friend.

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 […]
