"So, we all die.
We just don’t talk about it. And by IT, I mean, what actually happens when someone dies. We’re all curious about it but we also know that we can’t say “I’m sorry your Grandma passed away. Who did you call when it happened? Did she go to the morgue? Did you write the obituary?“

First of all, the filling for French Silk Pie is gluten free, isn’t that wonderful news? But crust, that usually has gluten in it.

My grandma used to color her eggs using onion skins and turmeric. It’s something I’ve already wanted to try but I always waited until the last minute and ended up going the new-fashioned route. Fortunately, my mom would still color her eggs this way, so she filled me in on how to do it but […]
I once heard the quote “stop the glorification of busy.” I feel strongly about this quote, I believe it happens, I believe it’s toxic, I believe it becomes a competition. I hear it in the aisles of Target, I see it on social media. When we run into an old friend, we instantly go into […]
My Dad’s favorite cake in the world is carrot cake. He doesn’t feel strongly about a lot of things but good carrot cake, he feels strongly about carrot cake. Last year, we attended the Madrigal Dinner at the high school. The whole environment, the entertainment and the food was spectacular. They served carrot cake. My […]

This recipe…THIS RECIPE…it delights me in so many ways… First, these muffins are scrumptious. No other word could describe them better. The kids? They adore them. They beg for them. They cry for them. They clean their rooms for them. Secondly, these are so easy to make. No mixer! Quick prep time. Easy clean up. […]
Many, many years ago, I tried guacamole. I liked it pretty well, enough to learn how to make it but I didn’t loooooove it. Fortunately, I rarely give up on food (it’s my best/worst trait) eating it again and again until finally, I fall in love. Like, I love it so much, I made it […]
