I love to spend a rainy Sunday cooking dinner. Nothing warms your soul more than something bubbling away on the stove or oven,  Here is one of our favorite fall and winter, and lately, rainy spring...Sunday Suppers.  The secret is a little balsamic vinegar in the ham glaze.  You'll find that is what gives it that "little something extra"  http://food52.com/recipes/14963-sunday-supper-part-i-italian-country-ham-and-beans
I recently started writing a column for AtCarmel magazine.  Here is the link to my first article "Season's Greetings!"http://atcarmel.com/blog/carmel-a-la-carte/
