What better way to celebrate the Stanley Cup than with chocolate and raspberries! I know usually we party with beer and wings, but here is a little change-up in your celebratory diet. Since winning the cup I’ve found my cooking has also lightened up. Instead of the usual after-season hum drums, yelling for trades and sanctions, I […]

The 2012 hockey season began early in October. As a newbie, the first thing I did was learn  a few of the players’ names on my team.

Newbie No More, Now a Los Angeles Kings Fan for Life

For me, this season with the Los Angeles Kings hockey teams started with Ilya Kovalchuk. It ended with the Stanley Cup. When I decided to jump on the Kings’ bandwagon at the beginning of the season, I had no idea where it would lead. I just wanted to support my long-suffering sister who loved the […]

I would like to pay tribute to the forgotten Los Angeles Kings fan. You know who they are. They are the ones who stayed with you through the long season of ups and downs of what is now our beloved hockey team. The ones who gave up Dancing with the Stars, American Idol and Snooky’s […]
