It has definitely been sunny in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest. There's no denying the beauty of this area during the summer and autumn months. The winter and some of the spring leave a little to be desired in terms of blue skies, but if you look hard enough, you'll find... Continue reading

Meat stuffed with a mixture of ingredients is eaten in just about every culture on Planet Earth. The well-known Chicken Cordon Bleu is rolled with ham and cheese and there's the German Rouladen that my husband remembers from his childhood. Many cultures also have a meat mixture rolled in cabbage... Continue reading

I spent the weekend scanning in about 600 of my dad's slides. Of course, this labor of love is more than simply scanning slides ... it's a walk down Memory Lane. They are not in order so as I scan them, I'm putting them in files by the year that... Continue reading

If this hasn't been a launguishing month, I'm not sure what would qualify as one. We don't have a formal vacation planned so maybe I created my own. I've been sleeping in, neglecting housework, engaging in creative pursuits in the hope of sharing them here, becoming frustrated by said pursuits,... Continue reading

Me too, Candy, unless it's too garlicky. I feel that overpowers the avocado too much. And actually, to be honest, I don't like tomatoes in it either. I suppose I'm kind of picky about guacamole and am just finding that out!

Cukes and avocados play so nicely together, Mary! Just try it once. Add chile powder if you must, but it really only needs salt.

I eat weird things for breakfast, too, Alice! It's all food and if I'm in the mood, I eat it!

Zucchini! Zucchini! Everywhere!! Every summer, there are numerous comments about how prolific zucchini is and desperate cries for ideas on how to use it all up. I don't have a garden nor do I have too many zucchinis, but I do have some ideas on how to use it up!... Continue reading

It was the evening of July 4th, 2014. Our cul-de-sac was awash in Independence Day celebrants, the littles were enjoying Pop-Its, the biggers were setting off huge noise makers, and we were indulging in foods from all the cultures represented in our small neighborhood. I walked in the back door... Continue reading

It's been two months since I made adjustments to the way I eat in the hopes that I will kick this thyroid weight to the curb and although the progress is creeping along at the speed of a turtle, it is at least creeping in the right direction. {Coffee cake... Continue reading

We had a busy weekend with visiting our friends at the hospital, watching the World Cup, and trying to keep our plants from dying in this heat! My geraniums are so full of blooms and they make me happy! I have four pots of them! Ken and I had a... Continue reading

A few posts ago, I started out by saying, "Good Golly, Miss Molly! It's already July!" And as I start this post, I'm thinking the same thing about this week ... where did it go?! I was supposed to tell you about crab this week, expound on crab recipes, and... Continue reading

Long weekends usually extend to Mondays, but this one started Friday, July 4th, our Independence Day. Just to keep things interesting, we took Thursday off, too, so we could tune in online to watch Ben play in the All-Star game at Busch Stadium. He played very well and according to...

When temperatures soar into the 80s and 90s in the Pacific Northwest, we start to wither! Most of us don't have air conditioning because there are very few days of 90-degree weather so we do what we can to make ourselves as comfortable as possible during the hottest part of... Continue reading

Last week, this post was posted on the blog at in honor of her seven years on the WWW. Of course, being that it was The Number Seven, I had to make it all about baseball. And here's why: The #7 is my favorite number! The fact that it... Continue reading

Good Golly, Miss Molly! It's already July 1. The sun is shining in the Pacific Northwest and our weekends are full of enjoying it! Aly was in Eurydice and played one of the stones. As she described it to us, she didn't have a very large role, but in fact,... Continue reading

Shouldn't this recipe fall more in a Mexican Monday category? Dorie says that guacamole is becoming more standard fare in Paris these days, but they use it in decidedly French ways ... like making it into a tartine (an open-faced sandwich) topped with baby shrimp, or paired with smoked salmon....

Ken's favorite fish is rainbow trout and it is really one of the easiest dinners to make. There's lots of different things you can do to make it yummy, but one of the simplest is pan-frying. I especially liked using corn meal, but since that's now excluded from my pantry... Continue reading

I was trying to be all brave and experimental once and made skate. I don't remember anything about it that I liked so I knew I would be substituting something in its place for this week's recipe. I have a hard time paying for something I know we don't like... Continue reading

Mom casually mentioned an eating plan that she was using and I kind of let it go in one ear and out the other. As I mentioned in the previous post, I was tired of trying things and not having them work. Sick and tired of it. Rather than be... Continue reading

I never thought I'd have one. A weight story, that is. I was 6 pounds 6 ounces when I was born and I remained tiny throughout my childhood. When I went to a new school in 4th grade, the secretary tried to schedule me for 1st grade testing and couldn't... Continue reading
