National S’mores Day – August 10

I love s’mores! My highlight of camping out or going to camp has always been the promise of s’mores. I don’t even like marshmallows but I guess loving two out of three ingredients makes up for it. According to Wikipedia, a s’more (sometimes spelled smore) is a traditional nighttime campfire treat popular in the United […]

Rich is Relative

So is difficulty, for that matter. Crepes are something usually reserved for special occasions, Sunday brunch, or times you want to impress. To the uninitiated, they seem terribly complex when, if anything, they’re a little tedious but not at all difficult. Want to make it even easier on yourself? Buy the crepes pre-made and just […]
