Well, this roller coaster is still moving. After last week's events and then the impeachment events this week, who knows where things are going next. But I'm still cooking. In fact, when the world stresses me out, I go straight to my kitchen. So let's review this week's cooking adventures. Thursday (1/7) - I made … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 41
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.

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
