Husband Stephen and I eat most of our meals out of hand-built bowls by the late Cecily Fortesque. They are such a wonderful shape and feel—which adds comfort to the meal.

Linguine with white clam sauce

One of the challenges of our hectic lives is preparation of family meals that are quick and relatively inexpensive. With that in mind, pasta with white clam sauce is one of my go-to recipes.

I use canned clams, because they are easy and they are a consistent product.

Homemade spaghetti and meatballs served with Brussels sprouts make for a comforting and nutritious combination.

Spaghetti and meatballs: A comforting combination

When I was a girl, I loved making spaghetti sauce. The recipe was simple: brown one pound of ground beef, add onion flakes, one can of tomato paste, two small cans of tomato sauce, some water (rinsing out all three cans), one teaspoon each of oregano, basil and garlic powder, some salt and pepper and a bay leaf.

A heroin primer

Readers of The River Reporter are familiar with our local, state and national epidemic of heroin addiction, along with other opioid abuse. What is lacking in much of the information is a discussion about the actual substance, reasons why it is so addictive, and short- and long-term health effects with its use.

Resolutions

New Year’s resolutions are commitments we make to our self. While there is some magic to the New Year, being successful with a resolution takes more than midnight magic. To fulfill a resolution we need to challenge our self. We need to take on the job of reworking how we work.

The winter blues

The holidays and change of seasons can affect many people negatively. Individuals with limited support systems can dread the onset of the holidays because it makes them feel more isolated. Those who have experienced significant personal loss of loved ones often experience a renewal of grieving during the holidays.
