Do you ever wander through a city on a weekend away and end up with pockets full of cardboard coasters, business cards and receipts? Me too. I collect every bit and take tons of photos; all my meals (and probably yours too), that wallpaper, the sign on that building,...

What are the perks of cold, New England weather? Simmering pots of comfort food and sitting by the fire are two big ones for me. Here's a newly commissioned chili recipe complete with the authors signature. I let myself be loose with the lettering of the title as the o...
