Ah, Friday, a warm cup of French press coffee in my hand (usually a second cup) and interesting food blogs to visit on the agenda.  I liked this post because I do like chocolate cake (just don’t eat it as much anymore) and had a good laugh remembering Bill Cosby’s Dad Is Great routine—very fun […]

A new favorite snack, these really help satisfy those mid-morning hunger pangs.  I discovered the basic recipe on Enjoying Healthy Foods blog a few weeks ago, tweaked it to suit my own preferences and thought it was too good not to share.

Valentine’s Day: NBD or OMG?

In a conversation with a 20-something friend of mine, the topic of Valentine’s Day came up. Her sentiments closely resembled those of many of the young people I talk to—Valentine’s Day is a Hallmark holiday, NBD (no big deal).  I mentioned that while you’re dating it probably doesn’t seem very different from any other date, […]

Feature Fridays: Queso Fundido (aka yummy hot cheese dip) (via Savoring Goat Cheese)

In my search of a notable food blog to feature today, I have to admit it was the picture of the goat that caught my eye, not the food. Raised on a goat farm, it is a natural draw for me. When I saw their blog name and focus on goat cheese, well, I was […]

  I love soup.  I love the warmth on cold days, its simplicity as a meal, how easy it is to customize.  It is no wonder that it was the staple, everyday meal for generations past—economical, nutritious, filling—you can find soup recipes for any region of the country or the world.  Chicken Tortilla Soup is […]

Post 100: Gotta say, I’m loving every minute of it!

I started blogging last year to practice writing.  When endeavoring to write a book, or multiple books, the primary advice is to simply, write.  Savoring Today, Overcoming Trauma, and The Stuff of Life have all been the collection point for what is inside to come out (it didn’t take long for me to realize I […]
