Thai Sweet Potato Soup

Thai Sweet Potato Soup

Friends! We’ve made it to Friday.  We all deserve a 30-minute or less meal, and here’s the one. I’ve been on a soup kick and it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. So as much as I bombard you with ice cream recipes […]

Oat Bread

Oat Bread

It was cold, gloomy, rainy weekend past up here, and the thing to do when all outside plans cease to be a possibility is bake. Cook. Tie on an apron, crank up some tunes (in my case, for this particular recipe, The Beach Boys) and […]

Sunday Somethings

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. It’s been a gloomy pair of days this way, and I’ve made the most of it by doing all the inside things that tend to get ignored from doing: closets are straightened, laundry is done, den is tidy(er).  I made some bread, which […]

Chicken & Cauliflower Soup

Chicken & Cauliflower Soup

Hey, fall. You’re here! It’s been such crappy weather the last few days. Cold and rainy, they’re the kind of days that make me want to sit on the couch and eat a lot of bread.  I did allow myself that one night, but then […]

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

News flash!  It’s fall, and dammit we can only hold ourselves back from pumpkin and stews and boots and cozy sweaters for so long. I wore a sweater and boots last Friday and, yes, I was so hot that I wanted to die, but I […]

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. The weekends are not long enough, and seem to be even shorter as they daylight hours are less and less.  Staying out to play until 8p was a given two months ago, and now it’s certainly closer to bedtime. It’s been a lazy […]

Greek Lamb and Rice

Greek Lamb and Rice

I’m a lunch packer and I always have been, ever since the days when Baba would come home and comment on how the admins in his office would spend $12 a day on lunch when they were only making $12 an hour or less when he, […]

Fall

Fall

Last season I did a round-up and I think it worked out rather well, so I’m doing it again because I find that an archive dive is great more often than not and reminds us of oldies but goodies that need to be made again […]

Sunday Somethings

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. Fall has made itself known, at least for the last two days, and I’ve been taking advantage before it jumps back up to summer later this week.  Mom and I checked out one of the local hiking areas and it’s so close and so […]

Sunday Somethings

Taking it back to Oktoberfest 2010.  Germany, we wish we were there. Hello, Sunday. Why is it so hot??  I can’t think about anything else.  I’m sweating in all the places. I’m in Chicago this weekend for a hot second, where I’m meeting up with friends, […]


Oh, The Places You'll Go

See the World: A Day in Delft

See the World: A Day in Delft

I hope you enjoyed our little walk through the tulips.  I’m still having a hard time deciding which picture to enlarge and frame (because, how could I not?).  What do you think? Anyway, continuing with our travel tale, we left our bikes in Edam and […]

See the World: Our Dutch Tulip Trip

See the World: Our Dutch Tulip Trip

After I don’t know how many years of getting bypassed on the trip wish list, The Tulip Trip actually happened! For years, Lettuce, Tomato and I talked about repeating our Oktoberfest2010 biking Bavaria through the tulip fields of Holland, but boyfriends and jobs, and hiking […]

See the World: Toronto Layover

See the World: Toronto Layover

Trip recovery is hard, and I made it harder with a quick day trip to Chicago on Sunday because I really know to go get over jet lag. With an 8-hour round trip road trip, obviously. Getting back into the swing of not having the […]

Eat the World: Chicago

Eat the World: Chicago

Chicago is a great city for so many reasons, but I think it really stands out on dining. It’s the reason that I left 10 or so more pounds (let’s be real, 15) heavier than when I arrived. Some of it is no doubt age.  […]

See the World: Québec City

See the World: Québec City

Hello!  Let’s take a walk through Québec, shall we? Mushroom and I decided to spend a couple days away from Montreal, and so really early one morning we took the three hour train, and ended up in what only can be described as a fairy tale. […]
