1. The Secret to Perfect Cornbread
Over Thanksgiving when I was in kindergarten, we drove up a Georgia red clay lane between fields of white cotton ready for harvest, bursting from their shriveled bolls. At the end of the lane, underneath a pair of ancient live oaks, Aunt Martha stood on the veranda. When she graciously invited us...
2. The Secret to Perfect Pecan Pie
Food & Cooking - Sat, 13 Sep 2014 13:43:09
Out back of my grandmother's house in Lumpkin, Georgia, towered a grand old pecan tree. Whenever we visited in the fall, we would collect a grocery sack full of pecans, and Granddaddy would shell them while he watched the TV news. We kids could eat those pecans almost as fast as he cracked them.
3. Pico de Gallo: The Secret to Perfect Salsa
Food & Cooking - Sat, 13 Sep 2014 06:03:40
Fresh tomato salsa ... Pico de Gallo ... Salsa Fresca ... Call it whatever you want: It's uncooked, undiluted, unadulterated veggies on a chip. The first time I ever had it, my college roommate chopped up tomatoes, onions, cilantro, limes, and jalapenos and called it salsa. She was from Californi...
4. How To Choose a Twin Cities Farmers' Market
Food & Cooking - Sat, 13 Sep 2014 13:43:41
I inhale the aromas of mint, lavender, and basil that waft throughout the market, as all around me a hundred chaotic conversations sound out between growers and shoppers, of vendors offering up free samples of hot sauce and honey sticks, and of Hmong children translating for their parents. A band...
5. Kudzu: The vine that ate the south
Food & Cooking - Sat, 13 Sep 2014 06:02:30
It's a way to pass the time on steamy, languid summer days: Taking pictures of the kudzu, demon vine, foot-a-day vine, the vine that ate the south. Seven million acres swallowed whole, taking in another hundred thousand every year.
Our game is guessing what's beneath the leaves. A house? A barn?...
6. The Secret to Perfect Pie Crust
Home & Garden - Sat, 13 Sep 2014 06:04:32
Me, make a perfect pie crust? Let's get real!
I'm not a professional pastry chef.
I'm not Betty Crocker.
I'm not Martha Stewart.
I'm a working mom. I know that working dads and even non-parents struggle with work-life balance, just like I do; but it's harder for working moms because we have t...
7. The Amazing Tennessee Fainting Goats
Food & Cooking - Sat, 13 Sep 2014 13:43:31
Have you ever seen goats that fall over when you startle them? If not, then you've never seen Tennessee fainting goats.
Yes, Tennessee fainting goats are real. They're docile, friendly, and make excellent pets. Also known as myotonic goats, the breed carries genes for myotonia congenita, which c...
8. Split Rock Lighthouse: Shining over Gitche Gumee
pets-and-animals - Sat, 28 Jul 2012 16:59:34
The wind sweeps my hair across my face atop a cliff overlooking Gitche Gumee. Big Water. Lake Superior. The lake that doesn't give up her dead. I'm visiting the Split Rock Lighthouse, perhaps the most famous landmark on the lake, on Minnesota's North Shore.
130 feet below, seagulls perch on the ...
9. The Book Is Dead ... Long Live the Classics!
travel-and-places - Thu, 12 Apr 2012 04:58:12
Amazon now sells more ebooks than physical books.
In the first few weeks of availability, Amazon sold more than 5 million Kindle Fires.
Some analysts blame Borders' collapse and bankruptcy on its failure in the ebook market.
Everybody's reading ebooks. But not me! A lifelong bibliophile, I lov...
10. Gregorian Chant: Music That Fills the Spirit with Awe
books-poetry-writing - Mon, 23 Jan 2012 03:33:38
At 4:45 AM, as the bells called us to chapel, we bundled up in our heavy coats and stepped out of the guest house, into the biting March wind of a winter that refused to let go. We trekked around the mountainside to the chapel of Mount Savior Monastery outside Elmira, New York.
As we knelt on th...
11. The Most Powerful Calculators in the World (and Why They're Wrong)
Music - Fri, 02 Dec 2011 22:30:57
This machine does the billing for our entire company. The wiry, gray-haired man beams as he shows off his baby. I just take this box of punch cards and slide them in here. He thunks a box of manila cards into the rack, smacks a switch, and clattering and whirring sounds engulf the room. See how f...

computers-and-electronics - Thu, 01 Aug 2013 02:34:06
You think you're a Kentucky Wildcats fanatic? You think you bleed blue?
Puh-lease! My son was due by C-section on November 9. We had to reschedule it for the 8th. Kentucky's opener was on the 9th ... and I didn't want to miss the birth.
Top my story. I dare you. Write it in the guestbook below....
