Garlic or bust…..It was bust.

This was one of those moments…one of those moments you have been looking forward to for days, weeks, months, years. One of those moments you can’t wait to sink your teeth into. One of those moments…you get the point. I was like a cute redheaded chubby kid waiting on her birthday so she can have…

4 OF 6 MYSTERIES SOLVED!!!

Do you remember those 6 little chocolate truffle looking items I received as a gift from little Sierra? Well, 4 of 6 are no longer a mystery!!! That could mean one of two things……2 of the 6 have not produced a fruit, vegetable, or animal (Hey, you never know!). Or…I or the cat killed the…

Sexy vegetables…

We’ve all had that snicker to ourselves, or out loud. Don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about.

Hello my baby, hello my darlin’, hello my Cilantro!

I finally picked the first sprig off of my from-seed Cilantro plant.  I’m not sure why I am so fascinated with it this year.  Last year was horrible for my Cilantro plant.  We had a horrible drought that it clearly did not like.  I didn’t know I wasn’t supposed to let it flower or it…

Has it really been ten days???

Wow!  I was reminded today by a loyal fan that I haven’t posted in ten days.  My apologies for the lack of The Onyx Plate in your lives folks.  I must indeed renew my commitment to you.  It’s a balance it seems.  One doesn’t realize what all they have going on in their life until…

Inspired…

It’s funny thinking that this will be my first post.  I have been working up to this first step of what I hope grows into something very rewarding for me.  No, I don’t mean monetarily, I don’t mean famously.  I mean a sense of accomplishment, being an inspiration to others, and finding my passion for…
