It's been another week of quarantining and yes, I'm still cooking. This week, my husband looked at the meal plan and asked me very nicely not to change anything about it. I, of course, did, but only with one dinner, and it was a huge hit. Thursday (1/14) - We started the day with poached … Continue reading Quarantine Week 42
I love cooking for others. A quote, "You always make more food than could possibly be necessary, so who cares how many people show up for Thanksgiving." The hardest part of quarantine life has been that I cannot host huge family gatherings or dinner parties. I promise you that when this is all over and … Continue reading Feeding Friends and Family
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

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
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
I can really feel myself getting back into the cooking. I am debating getting a better webcam and making some videos. I'll probably test them out on YouTube first just to see if they get any response, but a few people have asked. Onto this week's food creations: Thursday (12/3) - We just did leftovers … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 37
Our post Thanksgiving week did not involve the usual "how to use leftovers in new dishes" menu that it usually does since I tailored our meal to be for just the husband and me. I will admit that I missed the usual chicken or turkey salad the next day. We did have a bit of … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 36
