Anybody that loves shrimp and grits knows they truly are not a mismatched couple. The two go together like bourbon and lemonade. Like eggs and bacon. Like biscuits and gravy. I have tried many shrimp and grits. Anytime we visit a restaurant and it's on the menu, I feel compelled... Continue reading

As has happened in the past and I vowed would not happen again, my garden has run amok. Work and heat have kept me out of it and my children have promised help that has not materialised. I am disheartened but I am not defeated in this grand project of... Continue reading

I love to eat. I love to cook. I love to eat the food I cook. I love to eat the food other people cook. And, I often take pictures of that food. I thought I'd put some of those pictures here in one blog. Continue reading

I have two beautiful, wonderful, amazing children. My darling daughter, Jessica, is newly 16. And my precocious son, Liam, is 10. I have been divorced from their father for 8 years now. The marriage was not a good one. And while I will be the first to say that most... Continue reading

I bought myself a new camera a few weeks ago. I have been wanting an SLR type camera for forever. Every time I downloaded pictures of important moments taken with my little point and shoot I was disappointed. Every movement was blurred. Faces were fuzzy. Color was off. So, I... Continue reading

I have another blog on which I write about my adventures as a gardener/farmer. But there is so much more to me than that. When I feel the need to write about something other than my gardening, I have no appropriate venue in which to record my thoughts. This got... Continue reading

Sunday, June 19, 2011 Kentucky has had a weird season of weather in 2011. First there was tons of snow, but thankfully no ice this year. Then there was never ending rain and temperatures in the 50's all spring, well into May. Then it went from wet and cold to... Continue reading

Saturday, June 18, 2011 I have chicks! They came in almost 3 weeks ago on the 1st. This time I got 15 Araucana hens and 15 un-sexed Australorps. I wanted to make sure that I had hens to lay the green and blue eggs so I paid the extra to... Continue reading

Friday, May 6, 2011 Spring this 2011 in Kentucky has been wet, to say the least. It usually is, but this time we have managed to exceed our record rainfall for April by over three inches. Rain, in and of its self is not a bad thing. But when you... Continue reading

Sunday, March 20, 2011 Well, the hubby man and I went to our local Lowes yesterday to pick up supplies to build me three raised beds/cold frames. I had a very vague idea in my head and knew I needed wood and brackets and dirt. That was the extent of... Continue reading

I had a fourteen year old gas stove that liked to billow a nastily odiferous smoke every time I used the broiler. A little toast in the morning? Only if you liked that smoked. Some roasted asparagus? Not very appetizing when the house stinks like burning mouse hair. In fact, for a while, that's what I thought it was. That a small mouse had climbed up into my old stove and died. But when the smoke would not stop even after I had scrubbed the oven and the little body should have been completely incinerated, I decided it was something else. Continue reading

I decided to make jambalaya tonight. Why? Because when I stopped at Marksbury Farm the other day, I picked up some andouille and it was the only thing I knew used andouille. So, after looking through a few recipes, I decided to combine a few, leaving out the ever present shrimp so my son's airways wouldn't swell and close up. Continue reading

Lexington, Kentucky is a college town and like all college towns, there are plenty of burger joints and casual eateries. You have your old standbys like Tolly Ho's and Two Keys that have been there for years. And you'll find a new one every month in the same place you'd eaten at another just months before. Sometimes they come and go before you've even had a chance to try their offerings and you never know if you missed anything. But sometimes, just sometimes, the cards fall just right and you get to try a place and you find that it is pretty darn good and it seems as if it might last for a while. Thanks to Groupon I found Hugh Jass Burgers. Continue reading

I'm starting to think that maybe the future is a hopeful one. Why? Because there are children out there excited about purple carrots. I knew my own were interested, but I raised them that way. I expect them to find the joy, excitement, and wonder in the different. I taught... Continue reading

That's right. Exciting! My seeds have arrived from Baker Creek! I have laid them all out on the bed and shown them off like a proud parent. I have taken them out of the envelope in which they were shipped and oohed and aah-ed over them. I have stroked them... Continue reading
