Gotten your flu shot yet? If not, or even if you have, get a shot of Spigola Ristorante’s advice when it comes to using certain foods to fight the flu.

The long-awaited opening of Lindsay Street Hall, the former First Congregational Church on M.L. King Boulevard, has happened. I've gotten several calls from people looking for information, wanting to hold events there. Now, it's possible. It's a great space for weddings, holiday parties. Really, most any type gathering you have in mind.

October’s almost over, but anytime during the fall is a good time for German cuisine. There’s something hearty and filling about it. Serve it up with a cold beer or good German wine, such as Clean Slate’s excellent 2008 Riesling, and you have a memorable meal in the making. I recently sampled a bottle of Clean Slate and can’t tell you how good it is. It has a fresh taste with lively fruit flavors. Excellent.

I don’t know why, but’s it’s always bothered me that I don’t know Aunt Jemima’s last name.

In the past, it’s grieved me when I watch women with young children grocery shopping, trying to stay within the WIC (Women, Infants and Children) supplemental nutrition program guidelines.

My husband and I got our first turkey fryer about 10 years ago.

If you’re anything like me, you may have trouble remembering what foods are good for what.

I’ve always loved Pyrex stuff ... all those glass dishes that went easily from the freezer to the oven during my childhood.

A story on canning that ran a couple of weeks ago prompted a few e-mails, most thanking Bev Fazio for her good advice on how to can summer’s produce.

It’s hard to believe that football season is right around the corner.

My husband and I recently entertained a nice-sized crowd of friends around the pool.

Since giving my kitchen a makeover a few of years ago and spending several thousand on new stainless steel appliances, I started wondering how long stainless steel would remain in vogue.

For any cook, this has to be the best time of year. Fresh is best, and this is the only time when there’s an overabundance of ripe-from-the-garden local fruits and vegetables.

The Eat Fresh, Eat Local campaign continues nationwide.

I’ve become quite impressed with restaurateur’s responses to the Buy Fresh Buy Local campaign.
