As some of you may have seen, Avon, Candice & myself have posted blogs about our Pacific Northwest adventure.  Within those blogs, there was mention of a phrase I uttered "well, s*** the bed", something my Dad used to say.  With all of the back & forth of emails with the Oregon gals and the… MORE

DH & I celebrated our 30th anniversary last month.  Around May, I very casually mentioned to the hubs that I wanted to go see "Buford" as our anniversary present to ourselves.  Buford is our son, John, who is in the Army at Ft.

OK, raise your hands out there.  Do you copy multiple recipes from when someone else requests a recipe?  Like multiple cookie recipes?  I checked the beginning of my recipe box because mis7up has this idea for a blog that has you going to your very first recipe in your box that you haven't… MORE

This blog is dedicated to culinary and sightseeing experiences my husband and I had during our recent vacation to southern states. The purpose of the trip was to eventually head to South Carolina to witness our son’s graduation from basic training. A separate blog has been submitted for that… MORE

This is a totally off-topic subject regarding a milestone in a young man’s life. See the separate blog for our culinary experiences. On November 17th I had a very vivid dream. The kind that sticks with you for a long time. My son was about 2 years old, a very happy child that crawled up into… MORE

Where should I begin? Oh yeah, at the beginning... This adventure began when I became very interested in the Ohio meet-up and then from all of the "buzz" from the Southern Cal get together. Cat Hill mentioned on one of the SoCal blogs about interest in a Midwest meet. That sounded… MORE

Last night the idea got thrown out there for a Midwest get-together for AR peeps.  Mostly centered around the St. Louis or Kansas City, MO area.  Welcome to all, but we will need to decide when and where and who is available in the host city or at least knows where they're going!  My email… MORE
