I’ll Get The Hang Of It One Rib Sale At A Time…

Sometimes things don’t go the way you see it in your mind. I go to all these fabulous websites with picture perfect food and I wonder, what about the fails? Surely, I can’t be the only one with fails? I am here to tell you the rest of the story…. Most of my friends andContinue reading “I’ll Get The Hang Of It One Rib Sale At A Time…”

That First Sip of Morning Coffee

Since we are pretty much on lockdown, it’s been a bit weird. I haven’t had my husband home this much since I don’t know when. Sometimes its been a little cramped, sharing space all day everyday, but it makes one appreciate the freedom of running an errand. I’m working on my anxious feelings. I didn’tContinue reading “That First Sip of Morning Coffee”

I’m Unfriending Covid19.

I’ve decided to unfriend Covid19, he’s no fun and creates anxiety. I tried blocking him with hand sanitizer and Clorox wipes but he’s invaded my circle a bit too close for my liking. He’s a bit like a stalker. So I’ve decided to self quarantine. I made the decision yesterday morning based on some newsContinue reading “I’m Unfriending Covid19.”

Instant Pots, Crock Pots, and Skillets! Oh My!

Click here to print Hot German Potato Salad. So a little over a year ago, I convinced myself I probably wouldn’t die from an “Instant Pot Incident”. I did the research and took the plunge. I bought the Crockpot Express thinking I could get rid of my crock pot and consolidate appliances. Haha! Like thatContinue reading “Instant Pots, Crock Pots, and Skillets! Oh My!”

Spring Fever

Click here to print Overnight Cinnamon Rolls. Oh my-lanta! It is really been a gorgeous warm-up this weekend. A very welcome change from the snow and cold. It made me want to throw open the windows and gave me a new energy for grilling and baking! I took full advantage of the spring fever bugContinue reading “Spring Fever”

There Appears To Have Been A Struggle

Click here to print Potato Fennel Gratin. We moved into our current home about 5 years ago, this kitchen is really not a “cooks kitchen”. It could be better described as “cozy” or “compact”, maybe even “space saving”. Definitely not for someone like me who has every machine and kitchen gadget known to man. SoContinue reading “There Appears To Have Been A Struggle”

The Friend I Didn’t Know I Needed

Friendship is the comfort of knowing that even when you feel alone, you aren’t. If you need me, I’m here. If you don’t, I’m still here. Unknown Today has mixed emotions for me.  I’m elated and thankful for this day because it is the day God sent my husband to this earth and eventually toContinue reading “The Friend I Didn’t Know I Needed”

Sometimes Ya Gotta Do What Ya Gotta Do…

Every once in awhile I have to make a dreaded trip. I dislike the drive. I dislike the area I’m going to. I dislike how it drains me emotionally. It gets harder and harder each time I go. Especially when it doesn’t seem like I will get to do anything relaxing while I’m there. Granted,Continue reading “Sometimes Ya Gotta Do What Ya Gotta Do…”

And It’s Only Tuesday…

I work in customer service. Some weeks are worse than others. This has been a rough week already. And it’s only Tuesday. I’m not sure why people think that just because they can’t see your face, you are just some robot voice on the other end of the telephone line and that it is okContinue reading “And It’s Only Tuesday…”

Eeeeeewwwww, Meatloaf.

Click here to print recipe. I remember as a kid, I hated meatloaf. I loathed it. The only thing worse than meatloaf was a cold, leftover, meatloaf sandwich in my lunch the next day. My mother was not the best cook, but she tried and maybe if she would have had a larger food budget,Continue reading “Eeeeeewwwww, Meatloaf.”
