Cooking with Vodka

Brilliance. I decided that after a week of take-out and frozen pizza, my body was actually craving a home-cooked meal.  So, I finally tried Rachael Ray’s “You-Won’t-Be-Single-For-Long-Vodka-Cream-Pasta.”  Her names for things are way too long, so from now on I’ll be calling it “Pink Vodka Pasta” or “Fancy Spaghetti.”  My notes are in italics. Pink […]

Recipe and a Couple Shout-Outs

Our spouses’ club meeting for this month is Thursday night, and it’s a Soup Exchange.  We’re all to bring a crockpot full of soup, gladware containers, and copies of the recipe.  Then we can taste each other’s soups, fill our gladware with a selection of the buffet, and take home a bunch of freezable servings […]

Holiday Baking

She’s finally been takin’ out for her first spin… Yes, it’s official.

NavyGuy got me a great jewelry box for Christmas a few years back, but as with everything, my current collection of baubles has outgrown its former home. I can’t bear to part with the jewelry box, so I decided to simply supplement the storage. Pictured above are (almost all) of the materials used in this […]

Tasty Treat

Pink baking goodness. One pink bowl, two pink bowls, three pink bowls! (And a pink spatula for good measure.) This bread mix was a wedding shower gift; I opted to make muffins as an attempt at better portion control. Yum! Muffins, good. Pink muffins, goooooood.

Home Sweet Home: Hanging Curtains

Window coverings for the basement family room was one of the major projects I knew we needed to accomplish while Mom was visiting. The family room is right on the ground level of the main road past our house, so all night long we could see headlights going by and people could see into our […]

Crazy for Chicken Salad

I’m nuts for chicken salad. There are a thousand different varieties with countless combinations of fruits, veggies, nuts, and flavors. I’m a fan of any version, but this was the first time I attempted to create my own. NavyGuy (who claims he hates chicken salad) gobbled his up. I used my “Busy Family Cookbook” as […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

I may not ride the corned beef and cabbage train, but I do rock a great Irish Soda Bread recipe 🙂 This is my second annual loaf after Historygirlie convinced me I could probably tackle this one without much disaster inspired me with her version a few years back. NavyGuy tasted this year’s version and […]
