For scallops that sizzle with a drizzle

Grilled seafood, lemon, extra-virgin olive oil and herbs: This simple Mediterranean quartet of ingredients is a sure-fire combination.

Hot, humid days mean it’s time for haying — and a water fight

June 14: Twenty-three years ago today my husband, Joe, and I became parents for the first time. We were blessed with a little girl. We named her after my mother, Elizabeth. Since her marriage on Aug. 14, 2015, she goes by the name Mrs. Timothy (Elizabeth) Bontrager. A little girl, Abigail, was born to Elizabeth and Timothy on Sept. 10, 2016. Time goes on — one generation after another.
