For Mary Kaye

Spring on Cape Cod means, among other things, that seasonal businesses start to reopen. This place, Captain Frosty's in Dennis, makes excellent fish and chips as well as other fried seafood items. We went there today to have lunch and were reminded of how much our friend in Vermont, Mary Kaye, loves the place. So here it is, MK...

Fast Food Ads vs Reality


Each item was purchased, taken home, and photographed immediately. Nothing was tampered with, run over by a car, or anything of the sort. It is an accurate representation in every case. Shiny, neon-orange, liquefied pump-cheese, and all.

Easter Jam Making

The week before Easter the local supermarkets (Shaws, Stop & Shop) usually have great sales on fresh strawberries. I love strawberry jam so I buy 10 or 12 pounds of them and make some jam. I bring a couple of jars to the host of Easter dinner and the rest goes in the pantry. As you can see it was a great success...
