Since the fall began, I feel like I have been visited by the ghost of holidays past. Reaching into the memory vault pullling out this and that holiday to revisit like photographs from an old dusty album. I found myself sifting through the memories looking to see which holiday was a favored… MORE

I did it! I've finally found that ever elusive grocery aisle(s). Some of you may remember last year I posted a blog about wanting to find this particular aisle because of my two guys. Frankly, I was getting tired of being told to fix "whatever" or get "whatever" when it was time to do the… MORE

The planning began the day after last year's roundup. By the second week of June I had started the steps to have the perfect gifts, perfect flower filled and vegetable garden, perfect party atmsophere and a perfectly pristine house. There is a definite sort of excitment in having a roundup.… MORE

As some of you know, my guys plus one went on an out of state hunting trip last month. I was excited to have the weekend to myself so I was talking about them being gone. When I told you what they were going to hunt some expressed curiosity about it so I thought I’d share the results of that… MORE

A scrawny abandoned 6 week old tabby cat found his way to my sister’s in 2007.  To say he was smart to pick her rural farmhouse is an understatement.  She is a dog lover with a decided soft spot towards anything with fur.  She is also an excellent manipulator of other animal lovers.  It… MORE

I find it hard to believe how fast time has flown since Magnolia Blossom and I had our Midwest Roundup in November. Seems like it was just a week or so ago that Brenda and I were sitting in the sunroom the morning after we had seen MB off on her long drive home. Even though the roundup was… MORE

That's exactly what I wanted to know when I first spotted this plant in my sister's yard.  It was strikingly similar to a houseplant I'd given my Mom on her 70th birthday.  The big difference being it was outside and had self sown.  Mom's plant would be a goner if it tried to… MORE

He has arrived! Or should I say, we (DH & I) went and got him then we all arrived together. Yes, we drove all the way from Missouri to Tyler, Texas to get a puppy. Certainly not something I ever saw myself doing since there has never been a puppy living in this house. The dogs that shared… MORE

Predictions of heavy snow and cold temperatures have come true and schools have been cancelled today.  The snowplow is valiantly scraping down the highway trying to remove packed snow morning commuters left behind.  Its success seems to be in better packing the snow for their evening return. … MORE

This topic, RSVP’ing, came up over morning coffee before the start of the holiday season.  It started innocently enough.  Just a couple of ladies discussing the upcoming holidays, food preparations and guests.  From Thanksgiving on there are family get togethers, office parties, club and… MORE

About Me
I live in the middle of the U.S. in a farming communtiy. Gardening, reading and cooking are the things you'll mostly find me doing. I also enjoy horseback riding & my many pets. A husband & teen, I have 1 of each.
My favorite things to cook
Bread & BBQ are 2 of my favorite things to cook. I do enjoy a food challenge. Last year it was curing my own brisket for Corned beef & pastrami & porkloin for Canadian bacon. This year sausages & scratch cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Bread and brittle. I learned to bake bread with my Mom. It was her favorite thing to make. My Aunt made the best peanut brittle ever. She'd stopped making it in the later years but when I told her how much I enjoyed her brittle, she opened the vault ,gave me the recipe & handed over the brittle torch to me.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that turns out the way I wanted it to or exceeds my expectations! Like my homemade bratwurst.
My cooking tragedies
Let's not go there! I prefer not to think about my kitchen disasters besides my child can gleefully recount all of them.
