Well, we survived the nastiest winter blast most of us have ever experienced in the Puget Sound area. Let's pretend that's all behind us and spring is almost here. (I said, "let's pretend." Who knows? It'll probably snow again!) Anyway, there are outdoorsy events this weekend that'll get you...

Glazed donuts

Winning donuts for your workplace is fun for you, and for us too!

We had this idea last fall -- let's send a couple of dozen Krispy Kreme donuts every weekday to Sound listeners in workplaces from Tacoma to Everett, from Poulsbo to Carnation. Who doesn't like donuts, right? And then we had an even better idea -- once a week, let's get in the car and actually...

The Alaskan Way Viaduct

No cars on the viaduct, no pants on the light rail, and other weekend fun around the Sound

So easy a kid could make 'em -- my no-bake cookies for Christmas

I'm not what you would call an accomplished chef. But once a year, I like to pull out this recipe, which I jotted down with my own eight- or nine-year-old hand many years ago on one of my dad's cool notepads from his job. (That's right -- his name was Duke!) It's a recipe for Bakeless Chocolate...
