I love to cook. I love everything about cooking. There is no love sincerer than the love of food. I love the look on someone's face when I serve them something they truley love.

    My most Memorable childhood Christmas...My first TootTootToot!
    TootTootTootBy Ruben M. Peña Sr.With Christmas around the corner I was reminiscing about my childhood and thinking of my Dad who passed away some 18 years ago. My Dad (Sam) was also a retired military man (Army) and for those people who do not know a lot about life in the military, let me try to explain a few things…During the 1950/60’s when I was growing up, we lived in military government housing. The housing units were like condo’s…several floors and about 6 families in a stairwell in a building with 4 stairwells for a total of 24 families in a building and maybe 24 buildings in a neighborhood and several neighborhoods. In the back of the building was a large play ground (park) for kids. … [more]
  • Lessons from a Dandilion

    I recall as a young child bringing bouquets of brilliant yellow flowers to my mother. It didn't matter that the stems felt sticky or that both my parents cursed the presence of these flowers in the lawn. I thought they were beautiful!   And there were so many of them! We spent hours picking the flowers and then popping the blossoms off with a snap of our fingers. But the supply of dandelions never ran out. My father or brothers would chop off all the heads with the lawn mower at least once a week, but that didn't stop these hardy wonders.   And for those flowers that escaped the honor of being hand-delivered to my mother or the sharp blades of the lawn mower, there was another level of … [more]

  • Two Wolves

    Posted on: October 8th, 2012 at 3:02PM

    An old Grandfather said to his grandson, who came to him with anger at a friend who had done him an injustice, "Let me tell you a story. I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those that have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do. But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy. It is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die. I have struggled with these feelings many times." He continued, "It is as if there are two wolves inside me. One is good and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him, and does not take offense when no offense was intended. He will only fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way. But the other wolf, ah! He is ful… [more]

    During the waning years of the Great Depression in a small southeastern Kansas community, I used to stop by Mr.Miller's roadside stand for farm fresh produce as the season made it available. Food and money were still extremely scarce and bartering was used extensively.   One particular day, Mr. Miller was bagging some early potatoes for me. I noticed a small boy, delicate of bone and feature, ragged but clean, hungrily apprising a basket of freshly picked green peas. I paid for my potatoes but was also drawn to the display of fresh green peas. I am a pushover for creamed peas and new potatoes. Pondering the peas, I couldn't help overhearing the conversation between Mr. Miller and the ragged… [more]
