Now that we are snuggled up and warm inside our winter cocoon, our kitchen has become a hive of creativity. Long nights mean more time for cooking and gathering together around the evening meal.

Aioli brings warming flavor of garlic to simple fish stew

Swimming is a skill I mastered early. At the Y, the instructor stood on the deck holding one end of a long pole; I shivered in the water gripping the other. On cue — the piano hit “Alley Cat” distorted by waves and walls — she’d drag the pole and the pole would drag me, thrashing
