I realize we're at odds right now.  You're experiencing a summer's bounty of berries, peaches, tomatoes and other brightly-jeweled fruits and vegetables.  Meanwhile I'm experiencing the exact same 5 fruits that are available year round.  (Okay, there are a lot more than 5 but there aren't many recipes out there for taxo or guayaba and honestly, I've never been a fan of many tropical fruits anyway.)  So while you're making 20-minute, don't-turn-on-the-oven delectable dinners f...

One great tradition that my church has is to provide meals for families with brand new babies.  It's an excellent idea because, as I've learned firsthand, families with newborns do not have two hands or two minutes to throw together a real meal.  They end up eating takeout or frozen pizza ... unless their lovely mother and sister stocked their freezer full of food.  It also gives people a chance to meet the new little one and has the side perk of allowing you into other people's kitchens in a...
