Well, it seems like it’s becoming a biannual occurrence that this computer is attacked by malware, and although I wanted to share last week’s Zentangle Challenge with you, I couldn’t get pictures loaded or anything written. My fingers are crossed that thanks to hours on the phone with the Apple help desk, most of my… Read More
Breads & Muffins
Bread is my stranded-on-a-desert-island food choice. With a few cases of butter and vats of olive oil for dipping, of course. And muffins are a useful necessity. I mean, what else would you do with those ripening bananas? What better way to fulfill the need for a grab and go breakfast or after school snack?
Most of our brains are off on vacation this month. That’s what they’re supposed to be doing during July. Just put all of the to-do’s into a neat and tidy pile, to be revisited again after Labor Day. Right? But, I’ve been busy behind the scenes working with my site developer on the promise I… Read More
While Joe and I were off galavanting in Napa last weekend, Louisa stayed at my parents’ home. Oh, what a trial it was for the poor teen. She had to suffer through meals at fun restaurants, a trip into Manhattan that included a special souvenir, Nana’s cooking, a cupboard stocked with snacks per her request.… Read More

And Louisa has been practically living in the the theatre for the past month, rehearsing her little tootsies off dancing, singing, and acting for the high school’s production of “Hairspray”. Therefore, you can’t… Read More
Suddenly, it’s light, it’s bright and spring is really almost here. Oh-my-gosh! Today it feels so good to be outside. Even the sleep deprivation from the stupid change of clocks over the weekend can almost be forgotten when the world is so sunny and warm. And my appetite is ready for a real food cleanse,… Read More
Would you care to see the scars from the negative comments spoken in my kitchen over the years? Criticism and negativity about dinner can be a regular, expected occurrence when you’re feeding growing kids, but add to that comments from a husband who comes from a family blessed with good food. He doesn’t mean the… Read More
Rumor says that when a pregnant woman is close to releasing her baby into the world, she’s hit by this uncontrollable nesting instinct. Supposedly these mythological women go into a cleaning and cooking frenzy to prepare their nest for the soon-to-be-delivered offspring. That never happened to me, which might explain the need for two induction/c-section… Read More
This probably isn’t the prettiest food pic that’s been posted on this site, but I promise you, it’s notable for other reasons.
