I was reading Eva DelBriemari's blog, Hello! and was inspired by the contrast she made between AllRecipes and FaceBook, and her observation that we are of one accord. I have a mind a bit like a grandmother's attic. It's cluttered and dusty, but sorta of fun to browse through on occasion!… MORE

Yes, I am turning into a wimp. My body has been coddled by warm temperatures for too long, and has forgotten the frigid winters of Minnesota. It's 26F and I actually had goose bumps on my arms when I went outside. I probably should have worn a jacket, but I was only going to get a coffee and… MORE

One of the topics I threatened to... I mean promised to, write about was the basic skill of making stocks and sauces. I can't think of a better time of year to start the stock making process. Winter is the best time of year to utilize stocks in making soul warming soups. Consider this post a… MORE

I was married for 24 years and had two almost grown children before I ever cooked a big holiday meal. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, we would alternate from my parents' home to my in-laws'. Until 1998. My daughter was a junior in college and my son was a senior in high school. The day… MORE

I was looking out over my garden the other day. It was, and still is, in a sad state. The beds haven't been put to bed yet, and the stakes and trellises need to be put in the barn. But amidst all the decay and detritus I saw some dark green. Some of it wasn't weeds either! When I harvested… MORE

A few weeks back, Hurricane Sandy blew off the few remaining leaves that were still clinging to the trees and then she blew down the trees. The Halloween That Wasn’t has been forgotten except for the stray Kit Kat or Butterfinger in one of my kids’ pumpkin buckets. Even the wild turkeys… MORE

Turn your head and the seasons change and by gosh- here come the holidays! I have been crazy busy keeping up with the Ambassador program and cooking all kinds of new, but fun things, to the absolute delight of my family. I made reviews on most of them so if you check my reviews, you will see… MORE

A big thanks to redneck gramma for the idea of how to read and interpret a recipe, and how to write a new recipe. I don't have confidence that my skills are up to writing a new recipe. I do tweak existing recipes to the point that I can say that they are my recipes, but coming up with… MORE

This morning I made poached eggs for the first time in 30 years. You see, eggs had me defeated. I could make a good lasagna. I could bake bread. I could not poach an egg to save my life. It always stuck to the pan, or turned into a clear, bad tasting Stracciatelli. My scrambled eggs were dry… MORE

So, it's been (almost) one week and I feel really good. It could be the fact that I took time away from the internet or that I spent time with a friend, but I think a lot of it is food. I have been told a few times "eat to live, don't live to eat", but I'm learning there has to be some sort… MORE
