Every once in a while I get a hankering to try to make something different than I’ve made before. Lately in cooking, it has been making a better burger.

Today was the big Apple announcement day! It has been a while since I could watch it live, so turned on the recording at dinner time. Call me a nerd, but there were times I got the chills listening to the new tech and watching the little videos of possibilities! The sad part of the… Continue reading Apple Heaven!
As you may or may not know, today is my birthday. In our family, the birthday person chooses the place to eat on their birthday, and the type of dessert.
