The Food Blog Is Functional!

Posted on

When I made the decision in early 2015 to combine all my blogs into one, self-hosted site, it simplified some stuff for me, bringing everything under one umbrella.  Which de-simplified things for many of my readers, as I had completely separate audiences for my food blog than I did for my writer’s blog and merging […]

Is There Life After Cheese?

Posted on

Okay, so that hiatus went on a whole lot longer than I’d originally planned. Short version:   Life has been–crazy.  2013 was a very full, very stressful year and I really needed that time off from blogging.  I’m still crazy busy, and I don’t know if I’ll be coming back even now, but I have […]

Hiatus

Posted on

I am on official hiatus for a while.  I’m still cooking, but right now, there’s SO MUCH going on in my life, I just don’t have it in me to do a lot of recipe development or posting.  I’ll be back, and will no doubt make some posts from time to time.  If you’d like […]

Surfacing and Plans

Posted on

So, after a month away, I’m surfacing back to the real world (well, actually, I suppose that’s backward as I’ve been living very much in the real world the last four weeks–but whatever.  Go with it).  Daisy is improving every day, for which we are so so grateful.  This was her when I picked her […]

Update And Recipe Round Up

Posted on

I know, I’ve been away.  We got my uncle moved, my grandmother’s house dismantled, and since we returned, she’s taken a dramatic turn for the worse.  We don’t think she has more than a couple of days.  I’ve still been cooking, of course, but I haven’t had it in me to make actual posts of […]

About That Gluten Thing

Posted on

Hubby and I just got back from dinner at the new Mexican place in town.  It was delicious.  Among other deliciousness, we had cheese dip, which we didn’t think about having gluten (flour as a thickener probably), and now that we’re home he feels like dropping into a coma and going to sleep.  After being […]

Curious About Quinoa

Posted on

I’ve been seeing quinoa pop up with increasing frequency in recipes around the blogosphere in the last year or two.  It was one of those “other grains” that was supposed to be good for vegans and the gluten intolerant.  Well actually, just like cashews are not really nuts, quinoa is not really grain.  Both are […]

Thanksgiving Roundup

Posted on

Thanksgiving is nigh!  :runs around in a panic like Chicken Little: Ok, I’m done.  Promise. But seriously, Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK, just over a week away.  If you haven’t already planned your menu, it’s time to do so.  To make life easier on you, I thought I’d do a roundup of Thanksgiving recipes from here […]

Help Me Start A Movement: Retake Homemade

Posted on

I have been a lousy excuse for a food blogger lately.  I fully admit it.  Life has gotten away from me and I’ve been doing good to post one or two new recipes a week for you.  I promise I’m going to strive to be better about that.  Hubby is working on learning to walk […]
