Today's Features

  • A famous Detroit department store popularized a version of a chef’s salad in its in-store restaurants back in the early ‘60s. Shoppers at J.L. Hudson’s Department Store would spend hours looking for bargains and would then would go upstairs and have lunch in its dining room.

    The store was later known as Dayton-Hudson and then Marshall Field’s. Today, the stores have all converted to Macy’s, and some in the Detroit area still serve a popular chef salad, called the Maurice Salad, in their restaurants.

     

  • Salsa is the Spanish word for sauce. Salsas are not always that spicy red sauce served with chips. What’s great about salsas is they can be low in calories, full of flavor and available with a variety of ingredients, especially fruits and vegetables.

    Salsas can be made with everything from tomatoes, jalapeños and habaneras to mangos, strawberries and even beans. If you have some end-of-the summer fruits and vegetables, this could be the perfect way to experiment with different salsa recipes and flavors.

    Cooler days and nights are not too far off on the horizon. The trees and flowers will soon make their show and another gardening season will soon come to an end for which some of you are no doubt very grateful. But for those who just cannot let it go, gardening is still a possibility and especially if you like fresh herbs, there are lots of ways you add some color to bleak winter days and still eat fresh from the garden.

    With all the talk about balance in our lives, it’s no wonder we can feel out of kilter at times.  

    Media headlines encourage us to examine our priorities. Jobs demand more of us. And then there’s the tug of family, not to mention community involvement.

    Let’s face it. A lot of you likely feel you could use more time. So, why do you keep spending more time on things that don’t yield results and less time on things that do?
