Peanut Butter-Pumpkin Ice Cream Sandwiches
Peanut Butter-Pumpkin Ice Cream Sandwiches
Liren Baker
When the sun begins to dim, and costumed children stir impatiently at the dinner table, their parents coaxing them to eat one more bite before the sugar celebrations begin, something magical happens. Halloween night transforms neighborhoods into open thoroughfares, luring neighbors out to say hello, amid twinkling orange lights and luminous glow sticks. There are tricks and there are treats, and yes, I do believe, there is magic. I love Halloween, I always have. As a child, it was...

The Color of Pumpkins
The Color of Pumpkins
Kate Smith
Vibrant orange is the color that jumps to mind when we think of the portly pumpkin that symbolizes all things autumn.  Today, bright orange is only one of the many colors of pumpkins. There are varieties in shades from deep, robust scarlet to a light blue and ghostly white. Wearing White After Labor Day Coming on the scene only a dozen years ago, naturally white pumpkins, once an oddity found only at farmers' markets, are now...

Growing up, I looked forward to the magical costumes my mother would create after spending hours at her sewing machine. On October 31st, I would transform into anything from Snow White to an enormous spider (a la Charlotte’s Web), thanks to my mom’s creativity and affinity for Halloween. While I’m less likely to don a costume in recent years, my excitement leading to this spooky holiday remains. Still, I tend to steer clear of...

Inspire Your Color Scheme
Kate Smith
One of the things that I love most about decorating is playing with colors. There are endless options, and it can be difficult to narrow them down to a few that are the right combination for you. Maybe you like too many combos to choose, or maybe you love what you see in design magazines but settling on a scheme for yourself doesn’t seem so simple. All it may take for you to pick...

I'll never forget one of the first times my son took notice of the eggplants in the market. "Mama, do eggplants grow eggs?" he innocently asked. I chuckled then and I still laugh quietly to myself each time I remember that memory. Naturally, they grow eggs! Right?
