Once upon a time, I was a brooding teenage vegetarian who wrote way too much dark poetry. I wrote short stories too, but it was poetry that I would escape to when I needed to process whatever high school drama had me all twisty-turvy.

Don’t you want to go back […]

Who knew that such unnatural things could make their way into spice packets and crispy shells? Since then, we have switched to more natural, organic shells. But […]

I’ve read all about Penzeys at my fellow bloggers’ sites. And everyone RAVES about them for their great spices and whatnot. I checked them out online and was impressed with the prices so I intended on ordering, but hadn’t gotten around to it yet. You can imagine my pleasure and surprise recently when I was […]

Much to my husband’s chagrin, I love garlic. It goes in nearly every main dish I make . . . sometimes in greater quantities then others. And one dish that I love to make is aglio e olio. It’s a classic Italian pasta that combines just cooked garlic, olive oil and pasta in a wonderful […]

A bloggers group I recently joined called Work at Home Mom Bloggers posed an interesting question to members this week, “What do you do if you have an hour, day, or eek an entire weekend to yourself?” There is so little time that I have to myself these days. There are days that begin at […]

Check out Kalyn’s Kitchen later for a round-up of Weekend Herb Blogging, a fun event where we learn new recipes for great herbs.

Let me be clear about something. Until recently the only herbs I ever used came from jars. And even then, I barely paid attention to the shapes and colors of them. I suppose if I had, I would have noticed that I was buying the wrong herb at the market the other day. As reality […]
