Many years ago, in an attempt to eat healthier, my mother created a recipe to replace her favorite fried haddock.  Her delicious haddock recipe was passed on to me and then to my daughters. It is one of our family favorites, very easy to make, and much healthier for those looking to cut fried foods from their diet.   HADDOCK A LA RICE KRISPIES 1 lb Fresh Haddock 1 C Rice Krispies 1 egg white 3 Tbsp Butter (melted) or Olive Oil     I use organic crispy rice cereal made by Erewhon. It is available at health food stores and many of the chain grocery stores also have it. Any rice crispy cereal will work.      Start by placing rice cereal in a zip lock bag and crushing with rolling pin or meat tenderizer.  You don't have to pulverize it, just break it up enough that some of the cereal is cr...

I chose to look at Mondays as Motivational Mondays. Some of us may be thinking that we need an extra cup of coffee or an extra hour of two of sleep. I choose to say, give me an extra shot of motivation and set me on my way. As the year keeps slipping by us, I am focusing one week at a time on creating the best from within me. I hope that you enjoy this brief motivational clip to bring out the best in all of us as well. Each week, a new clip from a different angle, a different philosophy.

Atlanta Buckhead Midtown: Beware - IRS RMD ChangesNow In Effect In Atlanta, whether you are in Buckhead, Midtown, the Westside or elsewhere, the RMD calculations from the IRS have changed. Each of us need to review how those changes may effect us. Or, perhaps no effect at all!Ah- ha - what is an RMD anyway? An RMD is the minimum amount of money you must withdraw from an IRA or employer-sponsored retirement accounts such as 401(k) and 403(b), known as a tax-deferred retirement plans, on which you will pay ordinary income taxes after you reach a certain age.  (Not Roth IRAs.) Disclosure: I am not an accountant nor attorney. Check with yours.First, new Tables for Mortality have been adopted by the IRS. Second, before the 2020 implementation of the SECURE Act, RMDs became a requirement once...

Mortgage rates surged again this week on inflation concerns, hitting the highest point in 22 months that sent homebuyers scrambling to lock in rates.Many homeowners, on the other hand, face a shrinking opportunity to refinance.The rate on the 30-year fixed rate mortgage – the most common home loan for buyers – increased to 3.56% from 3.45% last week, according to Freddie Mac. That is the highest rate since the third week of March 2020. The 15-year fixed-rate mortgage, a popular refinance choice, similarly increased to 2.79% from 2.62%.“Mortgage rates moved up again as the 10-year U.S. Treasury yield rose and financial markets adjusted to anticipated changes in monetary policy that will combat inflation,” Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist, said in a statement.Fixed mortgage rates...

Harvard: 5 Financial Reasons to Buy a Home Eric Belsky is Managing Director of the Joint Center of Housing Studies at Harvard University. He also currently serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Housing Research and Housing Policy Debate. This year he released a new paper on homeownership - The Dream Lives On: the Future of Homeownership in America. In his paper, Belsky reveals five financial reasons people should consider buying a home. Here are the five reasons, each followed by an excerpt from the study: 1.) Housing is typically the one leveraged investment available. “Few households are interested in borrowing money to buy stocks and bonds and few lenders are willing to lend them the money. As a result, homeownership allows households to amplify any appreciation on the val...

Millennials & Income Today, Justin DeCesare returns as our guest blogger.  Justin is the CEO of Middleton & Associates Real Estate in La Jolla, CA. - The KCM Crew Millennials have become an important topic of discussion for media outlets and blogs throughout the Country. While some argue that my generation is blossoming later than our predecessors, optimists such as myself believe that with our rebounding economy will help Millennials finally arrive in the economic arena that allows them the growth potential generations before us were afforded. While I truly believe Millennials are positioned to become an important force in the new economy, the widening economic policy that minimizes retirement accounts and creates underemployment of Millennials threatens what is now America’s largest ...
