WARNING: NO FOOD HERE. This isn't about food and it's long. I'll try to give a warning when it IS about food and when it's short. This is about work again and me, me, me.   I should have posted in installments, but I really can't look at it anymore and I probably would have chickened out… MORE

This is a little story about a day in the life of a lady I take care of - also a day in my life. There are others in the story that I might write about in more detail later, but this is mostly my lady's story. I usually write about work when it is extra hard, or when a particular resident is… MORE

I don’t really write about food. I love food, and play with it daily, but my experiences are what truly feed me. Family and friends, work, things that I do, and things I think about…Whenever I think about writing about food, I end up writing about something else. Often, the something else… MORE
Pancakes for (more) fun.

So, I’m back. I’ve been basically inactive on Allrecipes for 4 months. I’ve taken a hiatus or two before, but never for this long and I realize that when a super-active member disappears from the pages people may wonder what happened. They may even speculate, right? My story is not juicy or… MORE

It’s true. Yesterday my firstborn turned 21, and today the baby is 16.    The BB2 is off with buddies today, and will be home this afternoon to bathe in the adoration of his parents and his hungover big brother. He has requested sushi for his birthday dinner, followed by blueberry… MORE
I love this picture, so I use it often. :)

Byrdboy #1 is 21 today. The Buddies decided to surprise him on Birthday Eve.     I called him from work in the afternoon on June 30:   Him: Hey mom!   Me: Hi sweetie! What are you guys doing tomorrow?   Him: I don’t know. I’ve been kidnapped. I’m on my way… MORE

I take pictures of the recipes I make on Allrecipes. I am not, by any stretch, a professionally-trained photographer. I have a cruddy-to-mediocre Kodak Easyshare camera and I format my pictures for AR on Microsoft Picture It (which came with my computer software).  I don’t love to take… MORE

Hey Sunny! I came as fast as I could -  what’s up? Look! (sniff) Whoa. What’s this? It’s supposed to be Maria’s Stuffed Chicken Breasts, but I’m making a mess. What happened? Well, I beat my breasts with a mallet before I made the stuffing stuff… Why do you… MORE

In case anyone is wondering, I have written a new blog post in my head. I find it frustrating that you can’t read it, since I worked on it really hard and I think it’s pretty good. I suppose I will have to write it down for you, but that is going to take addition time. One day technology will… MORE

About Me
I have an excellent husband, two mad-hot genius boys (16 & 21!), and 4 weird fish (the mean one died). I'm happy.
My favorite things to cook
Soup is probably my favorite, and baking my least favorite, but I'm not picky. What do you want?
My favorite family cooking traditions
New ones!
My cooking triumphs
Today?
My cooking tragedies
I torture myself making things I hate to make, but want to have, a lot. My tragedies usually turn into comedies, so they are worth having, too. Read Sunny, Celeste, and the Chocolate Stars on my blog if you want a little peek at an example.
