Born, Apollonia Murphy, in Nova Scotia, Nana Budrow was one of 12 children. I don't know how many were girls, but I do know that poverty forced their parents into sending the girls to an orphanage and they kept the boys at home to work the fields. Harsh, I know, but this was an important part… MORE

Is there such a thing as being too frugal? Why yes, yes there is. Take my Mother, for example. We grew up in a tiny town in NH, population; 550. We were a middleclass family of  7, Dad being the bread winner and Mom, a stay at home mom with a flare. Her easy going, carefree, often… MORE

Like many of you, I have become an avid Lily fan, and like so many, I sit at my computer, listening, with great emotion, to the very humanlike baby sounds, coming from that dark place far off in the wilderness. I have two female dogs. Pig, (she looks like a baby pig) and Iris. When the… MORE

The last time I went roller skating was 40 years ago. No, let me correct that. The last time I went roller skating was last night. My grandchildren had asked me to go skating with them, and what do you do when a grandchild asks you to do something with them? Why, you do it, of… MORE

Of course I am going to begin by telling you that my Aunt Ruth  was one of the truly GOOD people in this world, but I'm not going to bore you with saintly tales. Instead, I am going to relate a couple of quips that truly describe my name sake. Some years ago, I believe I was in… MORE

I awoke at my usual time this morning, 4 AM. Went to the kitchen, started the coffee then headed to the bathroom. As I was passing by the guest room, I noticed the bed side lamp was on and headed in to turn it off. Was just a tad suprised to find someone sleeping in the bed, but had to smile to… MORE

Thanks to an amazing woman (won't mention names...but her initials are, Dixie'sMom), today is the first day of the rest of my AR life. As you can see, I am sporting a lovely, new blue coat. A gift, from a woman that I have never met! Such a unique feeling for me. Not sure how to explain… MORE

About Me
I'm a fairly resent widow, still trying to figure out how to enjoy my life. Cooking was always a passion of mine but seems to have fallen by the wayside. My passion (or lot) has turned to thinking and thinking and thinking.
My favorite things to cook
Simple, quick meals...
My cooking tragedies
First loaf of bread when I was newly married...it's probably still in one piece, in some landfill, somewhere...
