Time To Make The Pickles

Time To Make The Pickles

We have been blessed with a bountiful harvest of cucumbers and zucchini this year, so it is time to make Pickles! 

Our tiny garden we planted the weekend after Memorial Day is producing more zucchini and cucumbers than we can manage. We’ve started to give it away!


Pickle Time

After much discussion and trolling of Pinterest, we found a dill pickle recipe on MountainMamaCooks.Com. Chuck didn’t…

Laith Al-Saadi at Sonic Lunch

Laith Al-Saadi at Sonic Lunch

Laith Al-Saadi smoked up some delicious blues guitar seasoned with his soulful vocals at Sonic Lunch in Ann Arbor, Michigan on 7-Aug-2014. Everyone at the packed Liberty Square plaza thoroughly enjoyed every ounce of Laith’s evocative music. What more could you ask for on a beautiful Thursday afternoon.

Kate Peterson - Gifted Music from Michigan

Kate Peterson – Gifted Music from Michigan

Almost ten years ago I was introduced to, Kate Peterson. My favorite Jordanian musician, Hana Malhas, made the introduction. I will always be in debt to Hana for it. Kate recently played at Top of the Park and the Taste of Ann Arbor. I was lucky to catch both performances.
