Taboo Teamings:
Food and Wine Pairings to Avoid

While food and wine pairing can be a highly subjective process, there are some principles which will help prevent an unpleasant combination. The acids, tannins and sugars in wine interact with the chemical properties in food, resulting in different taste sensations. So when choosing a wine consider the most expressive flavors of the dish—sweet, salty, sour (or acidic) or bitter—and follow the tips below.

ROME! What's not to like?

It’s got excellent cuisine, gorgeous Italian men and luscious limoncello (pronounced lemon-chello)—a lemon liqueur that smells heavenly and looks like liquid sunshine in a bottle. Made from lemon zest and grain alcohol, it explodes on the tongue in a vibrant burst of citrus that will cleanse your palate and leave you giggling.

How does one transform a drab, rarely used deck into a distinctive bi-level living space packed with entertainment potential? Lots of planning.

In converting their deck to an all-season sunroom with adjoining patio, Janine Yanisch and Chris Jankowski didn’t want support posts or an overhang spoiling their view or darkening their basement the way the old structure had.

complimentaty-calisthenicsRemember gym class? A calisthenics warm-up followed by drills filled with jumping jacks, push-ups, sit-ups, knee bends…and maybe a few short jogs.

This year, Rochester Phys Ed brings back—or acquaints you with—the benefits of weekly calisthenics in the open air of Soldiers Memorial Field Park every Saturday morning. It’s an informal, sociable, go-atyour-own-pace hour of invigorating exercise to get your heart pumping. And it really is free. The only “must” to join is a signature on a legal waiver.

Watch Your Step!

watch-your-step

We have ruined our oldest daughter for hiking forevermore. What began as a fun family adventure culminated in an angst-filled memory.

It was a gorgeous fall day, and we were doing the Minnesota thing by heading “Up North” to inhale the essence of Lake Superior just north of Duluth at Gooseberry Falls State Park.

The park is a treasure trove of meandering trails, bluffs and easy-access waterfalls. Hike five minutes and BOOM—a stunning waterfall. Hike five more and BAM—another one! As predicted, the kids were magnetically drawn to nature. We were like a family on the front of travel brochures. Someone should have been taking pictures of our natural ease in the wilderness.

from-the-publisherI am blessed!

Almost every morning, my youngest son wakes up, puts his long thin arm around me and says, “I love you.” A bit later, my teenage son calls out that he’s leaving for the day and waits for my hug before he goes. When he comes home after school, he seeks me out to help him find a snack. Most evenings, my beautiful teenage daughter plays her guitar and sings, lullabying me to sleep.

Single Motherhood

Print Email
Written by Amy Brase

single-motherhood

To be a mother is to be intimately involved in something bigger than oneself. Mothers are often attributed as being the supportive arms that encourage a child to grow and the gentle strength that holds a family together.

This is a story of three single moms: Rosemary Ptacek, Darcy Buntrock and Jennifer Gangloff. Each has a unique reason for parenting solo—whether by adoption, divorce or tragedy—but all three have overcome adversity and mothered their children exceptionally well through difficult trials.
