The other day I had to use up some canned apricots that I had left over from another dish. I was going to use them on steak, but it didn't feel right. I switched to chicken thighs and legs and was rewarded with a really good recipe for chicken. The baked rice, which was part of the dish, not… MORE

I think this was the first weekend in I don’t know how long, not including weekend trips out of town, that I didn’t go to my local ShopRite for anything. A weekend without a trip to the grocery store felt a lot like Anita Bryant without her orange juice. I didn’t even realize it until late… MORE

"Mom, can I do an experiment in the kitchen?" It's my 9-year-old son, Jared, asking again if he can mix up a little this and a little that and see if it makes something. I've been letting him do this for a few years now. When he was younger, he mainly mixed flour, salt and sugar together into… MORE

Spent an awesome day with my 13 year old son and my 6 year old grandson.  It is a cool, rainy day here in central-Missouri so we went to the book store.  My grandson is in Kindergarten so just learning to read -- so fun.  I got both boys a book and then we picked out books for the little… MORE

I have a bit of a crush on my NuWave oven.  I use it often.  I use it for everything.  I'm glad it hasn't broken up with me yet!  Today was a marathon between me and NWO . ..  we roasted 2 whole chickens and grilled a large bag of chicken breasts.  Half of the first whole chicken was used to… MORE

As the song goes.  I actually DON'T like spiders at all (I know, they eat insects, they serve a purpose, etc, etc, etc.) but I STILL don't like them.  Snakes...well, I'm ok with them as long as we both understand our boundaries.  I'm far less likely to encounter a snake than a spider, so I'll… MORE

(Part 3 in an ongoing saga)It’s been a while since I last gave my handful of readers an update on my quest to once again be able to take a bite out of a crisp ripe apple. There really hasn’t been all that much to report other than I got a new & improved upper denture that looked and felt more… MORE
