Feelin’ flexy?

Going vegetarian, but only part of the time


OKG7 Dining

Carol Smaglinski
A “flexitarian” is a concept that has been around since the ’40s, when our government asked citizens to give up meat for some meals, so the extra rations could be donated to our troops at war.

‘Bite me’


Food and Drink Features

Carol Smaglinski
Hands down, the just-published “Bite Me” is, as the cover states, a “stomach-satisfying, visually gratifying, fresh-mouthed cookbook.” And it all starts with the bright, blue cover that features shrimp hanging by clothespins on a laundry line.
