If there is one thing that makes me giddy it’s when dinner makes itself. And if there is one thing that makes me piddy (piddy is the opposite of giddy) it’s thinking I have an onion or a shallot to use in the dinner and discovering I don’t. I could drive to the store of […]

Not That Kind Of Mojo, Baby

What is a mojo sauce you ask? Well, I can tell you what it’s not. It doesn’t involve a dose of Austin Power’s charm or a spoon full of self-esteem or even a cup of charisma, although I’m wondering as I type this out if I’m on to something. PATENT PENDING! I said it first. […]

We’re having leftover chili tonight, so I thought I’d post something from this summer for fun! The original post date – August 24th. *********** Yesterday a handful of great friends and I got together to get some early b-day celebrating going on.

December Comfort

With weather like this I have 3 words for you: Shredded Chicken Chili. I mean, is there really anything more to say? You know me, of course there is!  A blazing fire, a bottle of red wine, warm blankets, wool socks, a good movie, a hot shower, a snuggly puppy, an abundance of questions for […]
