Homemade Vanilla Extract

It’s the most gift giving time of the year, and one of the most special gifts I can give is something I have prepared right in my own kitchen.  It could be cookies or fudge, bread or cake, dinner or breakfast.  I could wrap it and deliver to your door step, or I could have […]

Winter Floral Arrangement

One of the best things about decorating this time for year, is that unless the decorations are Christmas specific, like a nativity and a Christmas tree, the decorations can stay up long after Christmas.  In our house, our outdoor Christmas lights burn bright until just after Valentine’s Day.  It made me want to share a […]

Christmas Tree Tradition

Well, hello there.  It’s been a little while.

For those that may have missed this weekend’s facebook post, I shared this quick picture:

This is the top of one of many ornament boxes.  In it is my collection of gold and red hearts.  Growing up, my mom and dad always had gold hearts at the top of the […]

Summer Recap

A Journey: What I learned in a flood

On Monday, August 22nd, my dear friends Heidi, Sue and Bonnie, along with countless family members and friends hosted a fundraiser for Tersiguel’s.  When Heidi had contacted me on Wednesday, August 3rd to let me know of the beginning plans, I began thinking about what I would say to every person that has helped us […]

A Lesson in Grief

This originally was written as a facebook post on August third.  The events leading up to this post were painful, and the cuts and bruises remain fresh today.  Each day is a step forward.


I don’t really know where to begin. In my heart is grief, fear, frustration and darkness. I could curl up in the […]

Shortcake with Whipped Cream

So, how about that heat?

You know it’s been too long when I feel like I need to lead with the weather.  Weather is the most universal ground breaker, I think.  We can all relate some how to too hot, too cold, too much rain, not enough rain, too much sun, too many clouds.  We can […]

Ain’t No Thang Like A Chicken Wing

For a long, long time, I had an aversion to buffalo chicken wings.  It’s a sad tale really, when I think about how the aversion arose in college, many hours spent at Happy Hours, and I was missing out on this classic pub grub.  It’s not that I didn’t enjoy the taste or flavor, quite […]

Pulled Pork

I gotta give it you guys.  You have been patient, and I appreciate it, and now your taste buds will appreciate it even more.  Last week, while I was working on the summer freezer prep, in the background, my slow cooker, was just doing its thing.  As soon as I got home, before I even […]

Oven Baked Bacon

After all the freezer prep yesterday, I had very little inclination to prepare dinner.  I had already been thinking about BLTs to use up some tomatoes we had.  This is my easy method of cooking bacon.

You may remember this from the epic chicken tender fail:

This is just a half sheet baking pan covered in tin […]
