Fill in the blank. These words are a challenge. I love when a member of my family tells me they don't like a particular food. I then am on a mission to show them that they just haven't had it made in a way they like. Ruling out an entire ingredient is just crazy! For … Continue reading I Hate __________.
At this point, I can't even really say we are quarantined. I mean, we are still super cautious, but we go to stores and shop in person, our youngest is in school in-person most of the time. We've actually even started socializing a little, with our vaccinated friends of course. Hell, I'm even going to … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life Week 79
Well, I put my agoraphobic tendencies aside and got on a plane, and off to Spain I went. I flew from Chicago to Madrid on Tuesday the 13th, arriving at 7am on Wednesday in Spain. It was an amazing, whirlwind of a week. We had only a few days in each city, at most, and … Continue reading My Food Exploration in Spain

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
Well, I've been doing this journal for a while now, and as I look back through the early weeks, I have to admit I probably am not quite as engrossed in my cooking as I was in the beginning. Don't get me wrong, I still love the cooking and playing with recipes. I guess it's … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life Week 62
This is not my usual writing. I debated even posting it once it was written. But it helped me get in touch with my feelings and maybe it'll help someone else.
I love cheese. Cheese is a very big reason I would never choose to go Vegan. You can do so many things with cheese, and there are so many different varieties of cheese out there. I could not even name all the varieties of cheese. Cheese are generally categorized, at least in the US, based … Continue reading Cheese
We are all in unknown territory. We can still all be reasonable and find ways to get through this still feeling good about ourselves. We can also feed our family with a few basics and without creating waste.
