If Ever There Was a Time for Comfort Food…

January 14, 2021

Generally, one thing is usually enough to stress us out. A pandemic would have been plenty with the fear, sickness and death it’s brought. But combine that with job losses, kids trying to learn at home, political upheaval, no outings, throw in the darkness and the chill of winter and it just gets to be too much. We’re all on overload and when things get tough, much like…

Can You Ever be Too Thankful?

December 31, 2020

Wow, what a December. After much debate, stress, confining ourselves to the same five rooms in our respective homes for weeks, Covid tests, and a very long drive for my daughter, I got to see two of my three kids for the holidays. When my daughter finally got here, we greeted each other with what may go down in history as the longest, most emotional hug we’ve ever…

I Spent the Evening with Sir David Attenborough…

November 9, 2020

I’d like to say Sir David and I hung out and traded wildlife stories, but instead I watched this 94-year-old, who could just be enjoying retirement, give his witness statement on what’s happening to our planet. And yes, a witness statement is what you give when a crime is committed. If that sounds dramatic, good, because it is. If you have Netflix, you MUST watch David Attenborough, A…

A Lemon Ricotta Poundcake Mouthgasm

October 23, 2020

Some days I just need baking therapy. Now that I’ve joined the ranks of the laid off, I alternate between working on my book, taking meal breaks (woo hoo!) and looking for jobs. It’s a little draining, and leaves me craving carbs. This week I desperately needed cake, and found the most amazing recipe for Lemon Ricotta Poundcake that came from a Giada De Laurentiis recipe. But I…

VOTE! It’s Safe and Easy

October 7, 2020

I’m at my dining room table staring my mail in ballot. I like the fact that I can vote with hair conditioner on, under an electric heating cap, looking like an alien in a bad 1950s Sci-fi movie. I’d share the image, but am too vain to give you that kind of belly laugh right now. I usually vote in person because my parents did, and took great…

2020 – It’s all About Waiting

September 16, 2020

I think I might finally be getting the hang of this year – it’s all about waiting. We waited to see what Covid would bring. Then we waited to see if our jobs would come back. Then we waited to see if the protests would really bring about change. We continued waiting to see what Covid would bring after Memorial Day, the Fourth of July and Labor Day.…

The Absolute Best Cream of Mushroom Soup

September 13, 2020

Since you’re probably starting to experience fall, I have the perfect recipe for the absolute best cream of mushroom soup. Eat this with a piece of crusty bread and you’ll be transported. Those of us here in the southwest wish we could be transported, having just watched summer dry out into what is now the season of hell. But I digress. At least I still have a place…
