Any time I am invited to a party or potluck event that requires a dish, I almost always go with my "famous" meatballs and sauce. This no-fail dish always gets rave reviews from friends and family. Just last weekend I made up a Crockpot full to bring to a work function and they were a hit. I especially look forward to the part where I get to tell people that they are made with turkey - not beef. I often get puzzled looks and many "no way!" comments because it's hard to believe. But - "yes, way" - it's turkey.

Q: It seems our 1-year-old son is showing willful disobedience. We tell him "no" and try to redirect, but he does the same things over and over again. The things in question include turning over and not being cooperative when I'm trying to change him, slapping us in the face, and standing up during bath time. I'm trying to be creative with ways to entertain him and make things fun but am becoming weary. Any advice on how I can correct him?

Halloween is easily one of my favorite holidays - second only to Christmas. The idea of getting to dress up as anything you want and gallivant through the community with family, friends and neighbors to get candy is not only great fun, but always has been special to me. I really enjoy the sense of community that comes with Halloween, especially since it is often the one time of year we get out and see all of our neighbors.

I have had a love affair with bread for just about as long as I can remember. I recall many childhood meals where my parents had to cut me off from eating any more rolls so that I wouldn't spoil my dinner. There just isn't anything better than warm, crusty bread with butter to accompany a great meal.
