Another year draws to a close. 2013 was a big year for me in many ways. Lots of life changing events. The most important of these was in February when I lost my beautiful, and always inspiring, Aunt Ruby. I still can’t really believe she is gone. If you know me at all you know […]

Good heavens, the holidays are nearly here! Where did the year go? I feel like I just took down my Christmas decorations, and now they need to go back up. I’m really not ready for it this year. Rather than ‘ho ho ho’, I feel ‘ho ho ho-hum’. Some years I get filled with the […]

I’ve made a new friend and become addicted to Chai Hot Chocolate. At my new part-time job I have become pretty good friends with my cubicle mate, Ms. T. It is a handy thing since we sit right next to one another two and a half days a week. She is a creative person who […]

You know I love chocolate, right? What I do not love is how commercial candy is loaded with processed, synthetic, and downright yucky ingredients. So, when you love candy like I do you can either stop eating candy, or you can make your own. Guess which option worked best for me? My friend Andrew over […]

Pomegranate Chocolate Swirl Cupcakes

Sometimes nothing but a cupcake will do. There is something appealing about a pretty little cake that is just for you. With large cakes you feel almost obligated to share because they are big and meant for sharing. Let’s be honest, who wants to be the person who ate the whole cake? And what about […]

I am a deeply impatient person. When I set my sights on something I want it as quickly as possible. And, if that goal happens to be one I have set for myself nothing less than perfection will do. This compulsion can be a good thing – I am driven and proactive. However, when things […]

Have you had elotes? I have discovered that I love and ADORE elotes. For those of you who have not had the pleasure, elotes are a Mexican dish made up of corn – either on the cob or cut -slathered with a mixture of Mexican crema, queso fresco, and other seasonings like lime, cilantro, and […]

Pimento Beer Cheese Pie Bites

Do you prefer sweet or savory? It has been a little while since I posted something savory. As much as I love sweets, I love savory more! When I was little I used to love savory appetizers and bite-sized treats – especially if they feature cheese! My mother used to make cheese crackers during the […]

Someone told me today, “Wow, you look happy!” I AM happy, and evidently it shows! It has been a while since someone told me I looked happy. Frankly, outside of my home life, I have been terribly unhappy. What’s worse: I allowed it. How sad is that? I opted for the ‘safe’ path – the […]
