Mike.....hope it is NOT too hot in that trunk :) You got some walking to do :)
Jun. 8, 2012 6:59 am
It's not just hot as hades, mauigirl, but Magnolia Blossom is hitting every bump she can and I can hear them laughing at me.
Jun. 8, 2012 7:37 am
Hey Mike! Remind Magnolia Blossom to double check that GPS of her's. In Las Vegas it tried to convince that we were in NY State and then Colorado! Every now and then it gets a mind of it's own!
Jun. 8, 2012 8:06 am
Mike.....Tell those girls that I said to behave! XO to you all!
Jun. 8, 2012 8:48 am
B'Nana, Magnolia Blossom, at first, asked if I had my GPS programmed for the trip. I said yes. then she said her GPS was packed away in her suitcase. Do I need to say, "HMMMMM'?
Jun. 8, 2012 8:49 am
mauigirl, they said, "NOPE!".0000000
Jun. 8, 2012 8:53 am
BTW, EVERYBODY, Lady Sparkle's breakfast was a four cheese omlet with hash browns. Then, she had them make onion rings that the restaurant was not prepared to make. Nice Missouri folks that they are, they made her the best onion rings ever made!
Jun. 8, 2012 9:01 am
Mike, I haven't eaten yet!!!! Sadly, I am looking at Cheerios as a morning option :(
Jun. 8, 2012 10:32 am

About Me
I have been married for 43 years to the most amazing man on the planet. He is quiet and deliberate and I am NOT. We have one grown son (and his partner) that we adore. Because they work for the airlines they drop in on a flight frequently and we feel so lucky for that. We retired after 30 years at our careers from our native Olympia to Maui and now most recently retreated to Las Vegas to try to ride out this horrendous economy. We bought a small home here and I gutted it and am putting it back together, so I spend most of my time fine tuning the decorating and now I am plunging into a full tropical landscaping to remind us of our beautiful Maui. I miss the PNW, but NOT the weather. Miss the razor clams and the wild beaches of Washington and Oregon. Miss my friends too. Happy to have my friends from Allrecipes though. The four legged critter you see on my profile is a five year old yorkie/bichon who is the greatest little (9 lbs) girl ever. Quiet and calm, but so excited about life.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook just about anything...just mostly like the art of cooking and baking and sharing my art with friends and families. Love the smells that emanate from my kitchen and the familiar memories that come flooding back. The scents from my kitchen are probably my favorite thing in the house.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother used to like to make a big deal out of almost any holiday, so I have followed through with that tradition. Valentine's Day, Christmas, St. Paddy's day, Thanksgiving, Easter, Oscar night are just a few of my favorite cooking traditions. Birthday parties for all my loved ones are something I love to do too.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I mastered sauce bearnaise, or raviolis from scratch or my first perfect cheesecake or my first wedding catering job or meeting Julia Child (about 25 years ago).
My cooking tragedies
(See above) Well....Julia was so cranky and rude it ruined my love of I sold all my Julia Child cookbooks (some of them signed) at a garage sale for $1.00 apiece. Now I wish I would have kept them of course. I guess Julia was just having a bad day:( & I was foolish of course.
