After only a few seconds of thought, I’ve come to a conclusion. There’s isn’t anything in the food world much more wonderful than chocolate. My love affair with chocolate began at a very young age.
Culinary Conversation: Cook up some ‘little ears,’ ‘little worms’
There are so many things to love about pasta. It’s easy to cook and can be prepared in many versatile ways. Today, Culinary Conversation presents five wonderful selections.
Culinary Conversation: Share your best slow cooker recipes
Somewhere upstairs in a spare room among the books and boxes is a slow cooker. Obviously, I haven’t used it in a long time. Through the years, I have owned several of these time-saving devices. In the 1970s and 1980s, their popularity soared.

Culinary Conversation: Authors share recipes deer to them
If you want the most knowledgeable information about a subject, go to the authority. In this case, the expert on cooking with venison — deer meat — is Ellwood City’s Steve Loder. He and his wife, Gale, are the authors of “Quality Venison Cookbook — Great Recipes from the Kitchen of Steve and Gale Loder.”
Culinary Conversation: My, oh my, it’s pie!
Making a pie crust can result in one of two things. You’ll either be remembered as the king or queen every time the word pastry is mentioned. Or you won’t. For some, that age-old cliché “easy as pie” is not that simple.
