As the fall season begins, school does too. Things are a little different this year – some schools will have much smaller class sizes, some will be holding classes on alternating days, some will teach totally virtual courses, some a hybrid of both, and some parents have opted to adapt to...
This is a very light cake, similar to a lemon cake, but with much more flavor. My daughter sent the recipe last year. I am not a big fan of cake, but this sounded so different I had to try it, and wow!    I was prepared not to like it, but my husband and I ate the whole thing in three days —...
Five months in, it’s impossible not to think about all that we’re missing.     We miss seeing family and friends (Facetime and Zoom are wonderful, but we miss the warm, loving hugs). We miss dinners out, and going to the movies. We miss festivals and concerts and ball games.    There’s a...

This special “Walk in the Park” edition highlights one of the main reasons our family has enjoyed living on Daniel Island for the past 23 years – parks and open green spaces.   When we first moved to Codner’s Ferry Park neighborhood in the summer of 1997, the island had a very rural feel and...
2020 COVID tax relief needed   Small businesses are really struggling at the moment. I am doing all that I can by shopping locally, ordering delivery from restaurants and tipping well because the hospitality industry has been devastated not only by COVID-19 but by the riots.   I would...
