Yarnell is a small town near Prescott AZ, and the area around has been ravaged by wildfire for many too many days now.  The cost has been dear... 19 firefighters, not to mention loss of property... 

For all who have lost a part of their life, taken by this fire, here is my wish for you...  I find comfort in this song, by Josh Groban, regarding a personal loss of many years ago.  Please enjoy the link and I hope that it helps ease the pain...


Be strong, and be well...

Such a tragedy!

So many residents of my town are either NYFD or volunteers in our local department. Our hearts are very heavy. I understand a special Mass is being said Sunday for the Arizona firefighters and community.

Thanks, all... I caught a bit of a special motorcade in Prescott on today's noon-time news, but couldn't bear to watch the entire thing. Too much emotion for that time of day! Be well, all, and I'm sure the support is appreciated by all whose lives have changed.

It is a terrible tragedy when so many lives are lost. The blow to that small community is unmeasurable. And it wasn't for lack of training, as they do that all the time. Many around here know of the dedication to do this job. Prayers are needed for the heavy hearts of so many.

It dawned on me just the other day, that I "know" a woman in Peeples Valley (between Yarnell and Prescott,) who owns a veterinary clinic... I can only hope that she was able to evac. all of the animals and such... and that she/hers are all safe. I believe that folks in that area are now back at home... if they have a home to go to! Thanks again for assisting me in supporting this community! Be well, be safe!

Thank you for posting this. I'm in Gilbert and my ex husband and his family are all FD. So much grief, for such a small town.

Stevie, thanks for sharing the link. We live in Phoenix area and frequent Yarnell and Prescott. We'll be attending the memorial tomorrow and celebrating their lives with the community. This song will help with the grieving process.

About Me
Started cooking many years ago, and learned as I went. First meal may have been "steak & chips" at age 15, in Birmingham England, where I lived for several years. Mostly grew up in MI, transplanted to the desert 30yrs ago, or so. Favorite cookbook is "Better Homes", also enjoy "Great British Cooking, a well kept secret." Hesitate to call myself "expert," but friends do rave...
My favorite things to cook
Italian has been my "specialty" for some time, and my "signature" meal is Lasagne, salad, garlic bread, which I first made 20yrs ago... from SCRATCH, very first time I made it. (Never again, folks...) Now start with a big jar of sauce!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanks to my heritage, I have enjoyed trying foods from different cultures. We still have beer battered fish, and chips of course; ground meat dishes often, chicken occasionally, pork too. I would love to submit a bean dip recipe, however, my ex who gave me the original has passed, and I have no way to verify that it didn't come from another source! I also enjoy British cooking (with a few yankee twists) and once made Plum puddings, also known as Christmas puddings, as far as I know... what an ordeal that was, but well worth the effort. Today, there is mail order!
My cooking triumphs
Greatest triumph was not too long ago, when I held a sit down dinner for 12, Lasagne being the entree. It was a fund raiser I chose to sponsor, and am proud to say that "we" raised over $1000 from that meal alone, minimum donation being $25. All proceeds collected were donated; my partner and I provided the meal and beverages.
My cooking tragedies
MEATLOAF of all things! Went through a stage of "winging" it each time, and I pulled one after another out of the oven that were almost unedible. As yet, not too big on baking... no sweet tooth here! Have dabbled, but find doughs/pastries especially difficult, perhaps as it's 90 degrees in my kitchen much of the year.
