The first good crepes I ever had were years ago at a restaurant in Highlands, N.C. We ordered the strawberry crepes for dessert, and they were a huge success.

This was pre-internet, so the library and old cookbooks were the

Zucchini was never a favorite at my house. It didn’t seem to have much flavor, and frankly, we’d just have soon eaten a slice of cardboard.

But there is more than one way to prepare this prolific producer, so we’ve been looking into various recipes to help get zucchini out of its rut.

I hope you will give these a try. You

When you bite into a Christmas cookie, you’re doing more than eating dessert. You’re revisiting every past Christmas stored in tastebud memory.

Some like it hot, but some like it cold.

      The recipes this week are for a variety of coffee drinks. They’re all different, all good, and all easy. Why spend a fortune buying designer coffee drinks when you can make your own at home, save money and have as many refills as your system can stand?

There are many great cookie recipes out there, and everybody has favorites.

However, Christmas cookies are in a special category. These four recipes are associated with Christmas in my family and give an extra memory to the kitchen.

The best way to make these cookies is with children. Even small children can do some task. Cracking eggs, taking the wrapper off the butter or helping mix are just a few of the things they enjoy doing. Older children are great for the heavy work of creaming butter and sugar together and mixing. Everybody enjoys dumping in flour. And the

Holidays often bring family and friends into your home, often for overnight or weekend stays.

  The breakfast casserole recipes featured this week make breakfast for guests less work-intensive for the cook. Some of these can be put together the night before so all the cook has to do is start the coffee and preheat the oven.

It’s great to be able to sit at the table with the rest of the family rather than spend that time alone with the frying pan.
