This evening I decided I wanted to treat myself to dinner. The hardest decision was where to take myself. When going out with someone you can bandy about where to go based on who’s craving something or another. By yourself, it should be easier, but it took me a minute to decide. I ended up… Continue reading Dinner for One

Nothing New in Politics
As much as most of us would like for politics to be improving all of our lives, it seems for some of us that is not the case. Look to Florida, look to Texas, look to Ohio, even look to Indiana. Women’s rights are in jeopardy with the extreme limits on abortion. Now elected Republicans… Continue reading Nothing New in Politics
Prosciutto and Salmon, Who Knew!?
Rather than start with the first thing I made this week, I’m going to start with the last. It was a fun and a sad week of cooking. The fun was using some new ingredients and having some friends over for dinner while their kitchen is being remodeled. The sad was our normal Sunday family… Continue reading Prosciutto and Salmon, Who Knew!?
A Dedication of Love
Last week my niece invited me to the Dedication Ceremony for her son, my nephew, Blaze. At first I wasn’t sure if I would be able to make it due to prior commitments. As I looked at what needed to happen, I saw that I would be able to attend, to finally be able to… Continue reading A Dedication of Love
Traveling again to attend my nephew’s dedication (christening). So off to bed early to be able to be wide awake for it tomorrow morning. Happy Saturday everyone.
A Little Tempering this Week

Plus a couple of desserts, one being a special one in honor of Valentines Day, the other a classic. Below are… Continue reading A Little Tempering this Week
A Little Hard to Get
Happy Valentines Day Everyone! It is hard to believe my husband and I met just shy of 20 years ago. If someone had told me he was going to be my one, I’m not sure I would have believed them. You see, it was not love at first sight. Or 2nd. Or 3rd. Or, well… Continue reading A Little Hard to Get
Joe Biden, Good for Democracy?
Joe Biden was on fire during the State of the Union on Tuesday! One could see he was in his element once he got warmed up. There were a few flops, but there always are during this annual soirée. It was genius, in my opinion, how he handled the juvenile hecklers in the room, and… Continue reading Joe Biden, Good for Democracy?
Four Out of Five Isn’t Too Bad, Right?
This week saw a lot of leftovers. Although we are down to usually three or four for dinner, sometimes a couple more around the table, I still cook for at least six people. Old habits die hard, but it makes for some great next day lunches, or an evening off to eat a leftover of… Continue reading Four Out of Five Isn’t Too Bad, Right?
It is State of the Union Night
Watching the State of the Union this evening. I hope you too are watching.
