OK, it's the last day of August, and I would say, for the most part, I succeeded in my challenge. My BF took me out to dinner one time, and picked up KFC one time. Other than that, NO eating out, not even for lunch. The only items we picked up at the grocery store were refrigerated items (and…

Since I live halfway across the country and haven't been able to participate for several years, I started having my own "cookie day" with my friends and their children. I love having everyone over and the smell of all the baking cookies is so homey and comforting.
My cooking triumphs
I consider any meal that my pickiest eater will eat to be a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
