Wow, just writing the number 40 is shocking. But they say the end is in sight or there's a light at the end of the tunnel or some other cheesy way of placating the people who are going a little crazy. Honestly, I kind of dread the "return to normal" idea. While I am intrigued … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 40
So I don't usually put a lot of recipes into the actual blog. I like having them separate, but I thought I would write about our New Year's Day dinner this year because I was especially proud of it. I did a separate blog on the superstitions associated with this meal, so I won't go … Continue reading New Year’s Day Dinner 2021
I am not much of a traditionalist, but this New Year's Day felt like the time to try a little.
I know I wrote a heartfelt "letter" to all my readers last week and may have even suggested I would not have another post in 2020, but I just couldn't resist. Don't worry, I am not going to do another reflection on this incredibly weird, sometimes very sad, sometimes infuriating year. Instead, I want to … Continue reading Adiós 2020!

However, it was very cold and wet out, so we didn't want to have to go too far … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 39
We are the point where a woman could have gotten pregnant and given birth, or be about to give birth, during this pandemic. Sorry, the count of weeks just brought this to mind. I almost feel like we are all feeling like a pregnant woman in her last trimester, hopeful and yet still totally terrified. … Continue reading Quarantine Week 38
In 2019, I did a blog about things that I've discovered that are easy to make and taste better than premade or in-a-box versions. Let me tell you, I was just a baby home-cook then. I've expanded that a lot this last year. I wanted to take a moment to talk about some ingredients I … Continue reading Ingredients I’ve Stopped Buying
2020 is not quite over, but it will be in ten short days. Okay, a couple of them may feel pretty long. But as I started jotting down notes for my latest blog post idea, I began reflecting on this year. I began this blog in April of 2018. It's been a fun little hobby, … Continue reading Reflecting on 2020
