Back to blogging

I can’t believe that this much time has gone by since my last post. Crazy. Things are good here – very good, in fact ....more

Avocado, Bacon and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

March is the month when I really get over winter – like completely over it. I am ok with winter in November, December, January and even February. It’s supposed to be cold and snowy, and I don’t mind staying in and making big pots of stew ....more

Pumpkin Yogurt Crunch Cake

Things have been really busy around here so far this year. Lots of visits with kids and grandkids, with more to come, lots of poring over seed catalogs and gardening books, and lots of cooking. Lately I have not felt that a lot of the recipes I’ve worked on have been blog-worthy ....more
