Between the Wines

Golden Retreiver

Maggie the golden retriever was the welcoming committee for my sister’s Between the Wines Book Club. They’re a great bunch of girls and meeting them was worth the seven hour drive back to my home town of Newton, Kansas. This was the first chance I’ve had to speak with readers of Finding Daddy Warbucks. Read More→

Grilling Season

This is the first steak of the 2014 grilling season. Rib-eye & Martini

For me, grilling season begins on the first day it’s warm enough to grill. I figure somewhere in the 70’s is warm enough.
