An “Impossible” Situation

It was a dark and stormy Wednesday, and I was all alone, working from home. Well – not exactly alone.

My… Read More ›

You Gotta Have Buns, Hon … Impossible Burger Review At Duckworth’s Park Road

For the past six months or so, seems like all the vegan buzz has been about The Impossible Burger. It’s the “burger that bleeds!” It’s the burger that has the appearance, texture, and taste of “real beef“! It’s better than the Beyond Burger! Or – no, it’s not??? It’s dietarily vegan – unless, of course, it’s… Read More ›

Product Review: Amy’s Split Pea Soup

It’s a lovely summer we’re having this winter! After Charlotte’s typically chilly January, February brought us temps in the 70’s – even the upper 70’s – almost every day, with some cooler nights.

Make 2018 Great – Organize Your Kitchen, Part IV – Delight In Your Dishes
