Because of all the wedding madness just before Christmas, I don't feel like I got a fair crack at holiday baking. Oh, except for that one afternoon baking spritz and snickerdoodles.
The story I wrote for Saturday's paper about downsizing sparked a lot of conversation just within my family.

I think a sign that you have a new go-to recipe is when you get that desparate what-are-we-eating-for-dinner feeling, you think of a dish and realize your cookbook flips right to it.
As I work toward a streamlined, two-person home (and writing a story for Saturday about downsizing), I've heard advice to pare down your books.
A week before getting married, I had a couple of panic-filled days after I lost two stones from my engagement ring.
Frieda's Specialty Produce, which supplies produce to local Schnuck's stores, regularly sends me press releases about unusual fruits and vegetables.

Since I've been blogging lately about small spaces and home improvements, I thought I'd write a quick post about one small but incredibly useful change we've made in our kitchen.
