A note to my readers…

I’M STILL HERE!  I’ve just been taking time to enjoy life lately.  As I had posted about in the past, electronics take up too much of our time in life.  We don’t take time to smell the world around us enough.  I have been lately, and I want to smell it more often (maybe not…

Taking time to create and learn…

Learning to cook is one of the most wonderful things you can possibly do in life…in my opinion that is.  With something as simple as learning to pit a cherry, you instantly receive that gratification of a job well done.  Soon enough, you’re putting things together, off the top of your head, you never even…

The BIG 1-0-0 and Tillamook! Thank you!

“Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.” ~ Jacob A. Riis…

I Un-Skinnied my Cow…

I have fallen in love with these fabulous Skinny Cow bars…win.  They are white mint truffle flavored.  Such a nice, refreshing, and light treat.  I also was already in love with Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies…fail.  As a majority of you know, it is Girl Scout cookie time.  We have a few boxes of them…

Product Recommendation: Caribou Coffee–Amy’s Blend

It’s no secret to those that know me.  I absolutely adore a good cup of coffee.  It has to have just the right flavor blend, and it can’t be any of that weak stuff either.  I need to taste it, feel it, and smell it brewing.  With this out of the way…I have found a…

Oven-Roasted Asparagus…Amazing!

This household has really become addicted to oven-roasting asparagus.  It is so delicious!  When preparing the asparagus, you are supposed to bend them towards the bottom and break the ends off.  You are supposed to trust the asparagus that it knows where to break itself off.  After I have broken all the ends off, I…

Hungry Jack and Honey Bear

No, these aren’t sweet Southern nicknames…although, they would make great nicknames for the right people.  In my under-the-weather kind of mood lately, I have still been cooking and keeping the hub fed well.  This morning, I woke up and asked him if he minded making me some warm buttered pancakes with syrup.  He happily obliged…

Customer Service and My Appetite go hand in hand, folks.

We all know that feeling…the feeling where you know you aren’t getting adequate customer service.  That moment that makes you say, “I won’t be coming back here again.”  Hopefully, you haven’t had to experience that very often, but unfortunately I believe it happens in our societies all too often. Being an ex-waitress (sidenote: I would…

Chicken Noodling around…

Nothing soothes the soul better than good ol’ Chicken Noodle Soup…wait…what did you say?  Someone already made that publicly known?….with a book?  Darn, I thought I was on to something…oh well…a book doesn’t taste this good though…*smiles* I have been feeling a bit under the weather the past couple of days, maybe more so today…

A perfect morning….

Yes, we can all make gourmet items for breakfast.  I take great love and joy in making these items as a matter of fact.  Sometimes though, I enjoy the simplicty of a good bowl of Froot Loops.  Something about the ease of preparation and the comfort of knowing it will always taste just the way…
