This week I had a little more fun with food again. It's not back at that level with early pandemic when I was cooking sometimes three times a day, but it was a fun week. So, let's jump into it. Thursday (7/1) - Okay, this was a simple night because Katie actually cooked. We just … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life Week 66
We did a little traveling this week, which always changes up our normal eating routine. However, we should get some credit that we made a trip to Arkansas that did not include Taco Bell. Seriously folks, I don't know what it is about traveling south, but we always end up at a Taco Bell. I'm … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life Week 65
Yep, life is a little more open and about to get even more so. I'll tell ya'll more about that soon. But we are still being cautious. We go to places in person, though not indoor dining yet. But we have the 11-year-old who is not vaccinated, so she still goes pretty much nowhere. We … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life…Week 64
So, we've hit the third trimester of this thing...kidding. I wish I could say it would only last 9 months, and at the end we'd all get a beautiful reward. I'm just not sure that is how this thing is going down. But it would be nice. So our house is coming together. I have … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 24 – wow, 6 months!

I may be lying to myself. Thursday (7/9), I didn't take any pictures. Okay, I took one picture of the 10 year old's … Continue reading Quarantine Week 16
As states open more and ours, in particular, continue to see rising case numbers, we are not any more inclined to join the masses who seem to be pretending the pandemic is over. I empathize with business owners who are having to make tough decisions once again on how and when to reopen. I lean … Continue reading Quarantine Week 15
So, I spend a ton of time trying to figure out how to feed my family nutritious and exciting meals. Some days, that can be a positive experience, and others it is a major heartache. First, we have a 10-year-old. Any parents out there know that kids are notoriously frustrating when it comes to food. … Continue reading Stop People Pleasing and Just Cook!
A recent blog I read and a lot of the arguing I see online and hear about on the news and radio recently got me thinking about what I miss since this pandemic started. We've been on lock-down for about 72 days now, so just over two months. We are more fortunate than many as … Continue reading What’s missing?
Those who follow my blog know that I love cooking. I love the words "from scratch" and "homemade" about as much as anyone can. I grew up eating a lot of boxed and prepared foods. One of my favorites was sloppy joes. I decided I wanted to recreate this but avoid the canned sauce which … Continue reading Eat like a 13 year old
As we continue our exciting quarantine life, I continue to journal my cooking adventures. I love to cook and this has only given me more of an excuse to focus on it and share it.
