It's just too hot to eat ... yet I get hungry. I love salads, just don't like to make 'em. It's like the noble sandwich, something which always tastes better when made by somebody else. In my household we eat salad wraps (my recipe¬†soon to be¬†published) a lot, and they are quite filling, easy… MORE

I watch a lot of the Food Network shows; I'm a slave to Top Chef though I have no idea why "oh grawtin" has become "grat-tan" or what a ceviche is ... I had the opportunity to purchase a nice Cuisanart (? spelling) from a coworker as she was upgrading to something else (she was sorry she sold… MORE

I have a sedentary job; I work at home, I wear an oversized tee shirt (getting harder to find one "oversized") and slippers as garb of choice while working.  My travel time from bed to desk chair is based on how long it takes me to fish for slippers under the bed in the dark by "foot,"… MORE

My cooking tragedies
old-fashioned cooked fudge; dropped the beaters during the last phase of beating until the gloss was gone and had a kitchen decorated in splats and splatters of brown; even the mini blinds did not escape! Fudge ended tasting good, surprisingly... :)
