Cure for the Winter Cold

photo-15

When I was teaching I would always, without fail, get sick during the holidays. I did everything I could to hold illness at bay while I was in the classroom and then, as soon as I returned to the warm embrace of my parents’ house for Thanksgiving or Christmas, I’d be laid low with some sort of ailment. I had ... Read More »

LIVING IN A WHEAT-LESS WORLD

GF eggplant parm

So much talk of Grandma (click here) led to a major hankering for her eggplant parmigiana.  In my now wheat-defying life (click here), eggplant parmigiana has been absent since December of 2013.  Waaaaay too long! I did find a local restaurant that offers gluten free options for many traditional Italian dishes.  The problem is, you need to plan well in ... Read More »

PAST AND PRESENT…

formica table

We had a fantastic Sunday night.  Dennis wanted to make dinner.  When he wants to cook, I have to force myself out of head chef mode, and accept instead the title of sous chef.  Or just cheerleader sometimes.  (Cue glass of wine.) Dennis was working on some appetizer recipes for Thanksgiving on Sunday.  We tasted a Buffalo Chicken Dip, sinfully, ... Read More »

STICKY FUN

Silly, but awesome. A recent trip to Staples for the all too often blood-letting purchase of printer ink led me to this beauty:   It now sits on my desk and makes me smile. Claire, martinis at work?  Doesn’t that significantly alter the learning environment? Someone brilliant over at Scotch brand knows how to make me smile! Oh, and it’s Friday! ... Read More »

OLD FAITHFUL

One of the great things about going to a wine store is getting to pick something new. But sometimes, just sometimes, the selection is lacking or overwhelming or the salesperson is unhelpful (or MIA) or I’m too tired (or in too much of a hurry). And that’s when it’s wonderful to stumble across something you recognize and know will deliver ... Read More »

BEST. WEBMASTER. EVER.

I am dying to play with this new Plugin that our super webmaster has added to the Sauced blog!  You should now be able to print our recipes without having to print all of our annoying scintillating commentary at the same time. In our plethora-of-fall-veggies CSA-farm-share-life (click here for details), I ended up looking for a new way to prepare ... Read More »

WANTED!

skiing

In desperate need of a winter sport! Help! Here comes winter, and I need to be excited. I’m not excited.  I want summer.  I want sun.  I want long days and warm evenings. It used to be the case that with every predicted snowstorm, we would jump up and down with joy!  Yippee!  Skiing! We had season passes.  We were ... Read More »

DID SOMEONE HIT THE MUTE BUTTON?

speechless

Have we run out of things to say on Sauced?  There was a theme-change-gone-wrong, but in its place we have a bright new format.  There was a one-month silence, followed by less than numerous posts.  How are you to interpret the sum total?  Are we just plum outta thoughts? If that is the impression I have given, then you are ... Read More »

AUTUMN PICKS

Nothing says fall like cider donuts, apple picking and, of course, hard cider. And Hick’s Orchard is the place where all three autumn classics can be found, purchased and consumed. Hick’s hard cider is sold under the Slyboro Ciderhouse name with offerings that run the gambit from bone-dry to dessert-wine-sweet. After consuming enough-cider-donuts-to-feed-a-small-country just a few donuts, my friends and I made our ... Read More »

WHEN PIMPED IS PUNK’D

linguiniclamsauce

Note to self:  Never start thinking you are too cool. After declaring my utter joy at driving Monster Jeep, the swing up and into the driver’s seat, the rumble to life, and the ever so distinctive entrance into traffic, I started to notice that shifting was becoming increasingly difficult.  “Turn the car off, and it will slide right into gear,” ...
