We are into August this week, which means it’s almost my birthday! That’s a holiday within itself, but there’s some other holidays this week too: we can celebrate lasagna, a few raspberry desserts, cheesecake, chocolate chip cookies, and Jamaican patties, which are delish. But most importantly this week, we celebrate mutts – the best types of dog! Post pictures of yours in the comments.

“One of the world’s oldest fermented beverages, mead is also called honey wine, ambrosia or nectar. A craftsman combines honey, water, and yeast to make mead. With honey production in high gear, Mead Day shines a spotlight on its key ingredient and the time-honored craft surrounding it.”
