A taste of Mexico & India to transform your taste buds!

 

At RochesterWomen magazine, we decided it was time to try a new way of presenting food recipes for our readers, in a real-world fashion that most of us cook in. The “What’s for dinner tonight?” and your only thought is, “Gosh, what IS in my fridge or pantry?” Then you get about to looking and cook with what you have lying around. So we will offer recipes that are easy to cook, something new and mostly seasonal.

Spring is upon us and I know I am ready to forget about winter and get warm. In honor of our exotic travel features to India and Mexico this issue, let’s savor some new tastes. Ahh! I can feel the sand beneath my feet already.

Créme Brulee is a classic French dessert made from cream and egg yolks with a brittle caramelized sugar topping. The textual contrast of smooth, warm, creamy custard lying just beneath a fragile glassy sugar coating is culinary perfection for the senses.

Fermented Follies

Inspired by the book title, “He Said Beer, She Said Wine,” (DK Publishing 2008) and bored with the dark, cold days of winter, I set out to learn if “she” really says wine and “he” really says beer.

When the Diversity Council of Rochester and Rochester Civic Theatre partnered five years ago, their main goal was “Celebrating Diversity and Inclusivity in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.”  The long list of events that has been presented has received overwhelming support from both presenters and participants. Fundamentally, the partnership has lead to looking at injustice from a theatric point of view. The goal is to sustain a welcoming attitude to all people, keeping that in mind when making decisions for the Rochester community.

Take It From Me

Written by Amy Brase

take-it-from-me

It’s confession time. For years, I’ve fantasized about having my own advice column. What a thrill it would be to receive angst-filled letters from loyal readers and then wave a magic wand of wisdom over their predicaments.

It’s not that I think I have magical wisdom. If true, my own life would be considerably less messy! But I do believe in the power of words, especially when they are from complete strangers. I could be that stranger!

I’d need a catchy pen name to establish credibility. “Dear Amy” is sort of dull and already taken. It’s also hardly anonymous. With a pseudonym, my personality could be the sweet grandma next door with timeless teachings. Or the witty girlfriend down the street with hilarious one-liners. I could even be the edgy, straightforward chic with a no-nonsense style.

“People get so excited about travel,” says Peggy Nixa, certified travel counselor and field manager for the Rochester/Burnsville AAA office. “And no wonder. It’s fun to see cultures and sights and make memories.”

According to Nixa, 90–95 percent of travel plans and decisions are made by women. With that in mind, Nixa organized a club four years ago in Burnsville specially designed for women of all ages interested in travel called Today’s Traveling Women (TTW). The club presents opportunities to learn about different destinations, gain travel tips and meet other women who love to travel.

From the Editor: Nov/Dec 2012

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. The smell of roast turkey wafts throughout the house. Sugar-crusted pecan pie waits on the hutch for coffee and conversation. Loved ones bustle in, shaking the last of fall off their coats, knowing the white chill of winter is just around the corner. It welcomes all ages and faiths. It is uniquely American, begun by people who built more graves than homes but who were thankful nonetheless. It quiets my Post-Modern grousing.

Pet Q & A - Nov/Dec 2012

Written by Sara Reusche

pet-qa-novdec2012Q: We’re planning to get my elderly grandmother a pet for Christmas because she’s lonely. Is it better to get her an adult cat or a kitten?

A: While there are many reasons to give a pet as a gift, experts advise against doing so. Dogs and cats are a 10–15 year commitment and entail significant ongoing costs and care.
