    Ever have one of those kitchen-disaster days where it’s better just to walk away than try and fix it? That was me, earlier this evening. A few months back, our dog, Cybil, stopped eating. Since she was a total chow-hound prior to this, we took her to the vet, where […]

    Roasted Vegetable Soup with Coca Cola Country Ham

    Coca Cola?!?  In MY house?!? Has the End of Times come and gone?!? Well… not quite. It was a recipe ingredient. Really. And it was an imported Mexican Coke – made with sugar. I drink maybe three Cokes a year. All from Mexico from an ice-cold bottle. Even if high […]

    Corned Beef Hash and Poached Eggs

    One of my (many) guilty pleasures in life is Mary Kitchen Corned Beef Hash. I know… I know… For all the espousing I do on eating well, opening a can of corned beef hash seems pretty bad. Oh well. I’ve always liked corned beef hash and when I see it […]

    I made a Pumpkin Soup at work all week, so it was only fitting that I make more Pumpkin Soup at home, right?!? I mean, ’tis the season, and all… Nonna has decided she doesn’t like pumpkin, so… as long as we don’t tell her it’s pumpkin, she’ll eat it. […]

    Fun Food with Old Friends

    We had dear friends stop by for an all-too-brief overnight visit. The fun thing about overnight visits is being able to just sit and talk without having to look at a clock. Not that any of us really drink very much, but nor is there need for a designated driver. […]

    A New Look

    The fun thing about dabbling in web design is coming up with new ideas. The bad thing about dabbling in web design is never quite being satisfied with your latest new idea. Today, I’m satisfied. I had reworked the site over the past couple of weeks, but I wasn’t totally […]
