  • Being part of a dog's life

    It has been a little more than two months since my girlfriend, Rebecca Ricks, and I first got a new addition to our home, a 2-year-old Pomeranian named Tybalt.

    Although he came to us after being abandoned, Tybalt has adjusted so well it seems like he has been here all his life. He never seemed uncomfortable at all.

    Sure, for the first couple of weeks Tybalt was a door dasher. You know: He saw an open door and he dashed for it to run outside. From what we were told, he was abandoned outside, so maybe he was used to running free.

  • A Dash of Class: I promise to never experiment with hamburger again

    In the column two weeks ago, two ingredients were left without measurements for the White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies. There should be 1/3 c. Splenda and 2/3 c. white chocolate chips.

    My third resolution at the end of 2010 was to try new recipes. My husband reminded me of a funny story that happened when we were first married. We went in with my mom and bought a steer for half the beef cuts. We had a lot of hamburger in the freezer and we got really tired of eating hamburgers, Sloppy Joe’s and tater tot casserole.
