Happy birthday. Life happens only one moment at a time and trying to cram in too much will rob you of the delicious experience. Stick to your top wish. Prioritize and hold it sacred and you will succeed beyond your wildest imaginings.

On Christianity

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I'm tired of Christian "friends" who are constantly telling me how I ought to live. I'll run my life any way I want to. It's none of their business what I do, as long as I'm not hurting anybody.

Cooking: Roasts of Tuscany

posted: 01/16/2018 11:59 a.m. Discuss

Florence’s most iconic dish is, without a doubt, bistecca alla fiorentina: an enormous porterhouse steak, minimally seasoned with salt and pepper, grilled and served bloody rare. It’s a showstopper, for sure. But it’s not for everyone, or for every occasion. Less well known, but just as worthy, are the simple roasts served in the city’s cozy trattorias, in family-run restaurants in the countryside and in home kitchens throughout the Italian region of Tuscany.

There are two major drawbacks to cooking beef stew in a slow cooker:

When it comes to nonstick cookware, we’re long past the days of peel-prone Teflon coatings. Bialetti’s Titan line features a micro-divoted (more on that later) titanium-reinforced nonstick surface and is oven safe up to 400 degrees. The stainless-steel and aluminum pans are lightweight enough for easy maneuvering, yet have enough heft for durability.

Cooking for two: Savory, sweet pork tenderloin in 30 minutes

posted: 01/10/2018 1:46 a.m. Discuss

A dish that is savory, earthy and sweet calls for a wine that can also hit those notes, or at least most of them. Spanish rioja, a lush dark Italian red blend or French gamay will cover the bases nicely, each offering ripe fruit plus balancing savory and herbal notes.

Sausage, potatoes and onions combined make golden hash

posted: 01/10/2018 1:45 a.m. Discuss

You may know a skillet hash as the last stop for leftover spuds. But I encourage you to pick up a few pounds of buttery-tasting, yellow-fleshed potatoes just for this version. They become tender within a half hour without any precooking, yet they will hold their shape and allow for those money-shot crisped edges.

Uncorked: Wine glasses are different, but part of the enjoyment

posted: 01/10/2018 1:44 a.m. Discuss

Wine glasses come in all shapes and sizes, but there is really only one factor of vital importance: material. It doesn't take an expert to know wine tastes differently from a glass than it does from a Styrofoam cup.

COOKING WITH DIABETES: Lentils and squash packed with flavor

posted: 01/10/2018 1:42 a.m. Discuss

Black lentils have so much drama to them, especially when they are paired with anything that is contrasting in color ... which is pretty much anything that isn't black as well.
