Every year around this time, mid-January to February, I find myself pulling out my old Clipper Cruise Line cookbook and revisiting some of our favorite recipes from our years at sea. Clipper Cruise Line, now no longer in existence, was a small-ship cruise line devoted to providing the very best experience in the world of luxury expedition cruises.
Our son, Giovanni, turns 12 years old today. Over the years, we have watched him move from his early, omnivorous toddler days where he would eat anything — even kalamata olives and calamari — to his "picky eater" preschool days where he wouldn't eat anything other than chicken nuggets, cheese pizza, plain pasta and French fries.
FARGO—Autumn is nearly upon us, my favorite time of year. But, with the onset of after-school activities, football games and the general business of life to attend to, finding time to properly feed my family can be a challenge. I just love it when I come across a recipe that allows me to cheat a bit, but tastes so good that no one will ever notice. Today's Easy Chicken Pot Pie is exactly that kind of recipe.
FARGO -- There are times when work and play collide so perfectly that the result is pure fun. Last Thursday, on a gorgeous summer evening in Mayville that happened to us. Tony and I had been invited to the home of Brent and Bonnie Freeland to prepare a dinner for eight guests, in support of Mayville State University.
