I had to say goodbye to my baby kitty, Logan, today.  As painful as it was to let her go I am sure she is free if pain.  She would have been 20 this summer.  The last cat I had lived to be 19.  My vet says it must be something in the water over here! :)  Logan was a little poof of fur when… MORE

Hope your first 2 months of 2011 have been healthy and happy!  I have met some of my goals and have failed miserably at others!  That is why the 1st day of the month is a good time to evaluate my life.... thought you might want to do the same (evaluate your own... not mine!!) … MORE

About Me
I live in Nashville, TN. I like to listen to music and go out to eat when I am not cooking! I am now an RE addict. This site has helped broaden my horizons in the kitchen and I have "met" alot of great people on this site!!!! I love dark chocolate and any kind of cool kitchen gadgets. Can't stand allspice or anything pumpkin!!!!!
My favorite things to cook
Pasta sauce, Seafood, southern dishes - meatloaf, mashed potatoes, fried chicken! I am now trying to cook healthier recipes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite one started Thanksgiving 2008! My sis and nephew came down to join my hubs and I for dinner! It was literally one of the best dinners I ever made or ate! We all lazied around (well, I did in between cooking.) We sat outside and just PIGGED OUT! We looked around and noticed we were all in are sweats with no make up, no cleaning up~That is when Skanksgiving was born!
