Beans in your batter make breakfast better
On a gray Sunday morning, I sauntered into the kitchen and poured a cup of coffee. While stirring in some honey, I looked at the whitecaps in the channel and then focused on the window glass. It was textured with strips of moss and fat raindrops, deposited by 40-knot winds. This was going to be a slow breakfast morning. Time for waffles. But not just any waffles. I reached for a cookbook with a yellow spine, long ...

Gizmo likes the King’s chances
Gizmo has morphed into the Hamburglar. I cleaned the kitchen counter this week, and in the process tossed a bag of stale hamburger buns in the garbage. Turns out the pup really likes month-old buns. He paraded around the house with his teeth grasping on to the bread. I carefully grabbed it out of his mouth without him taking a bite of one of my digits.
