And The Winner

..of the Great Root Beer Taste Test is… Not this one:   This one was ‘butterscotch’ root beer. It tasted just like it sounds; sickly. Dang it, that root beer was almost nasty. These are the varieties I sampled; all new to me: Fitz’s and Faygo were both extremely pleasing, Stewart’s was pleasant enough and […]

What Are Ya At Now* 2

……or W’as Goin’ On Now? #2 To which I reply “Same ole t’ing, maid, same ole t’ing. Makin’ stuff and den eatin’ some of it. Eatin’ a lot of it, to be shore.” Like these Coconut Milk Sweet buns I made yesterday in my thrift store breadmaker using my thrift store breadmaker cookbook.  Big buns. […]

What Are Ya At Now?*

…..or Anyt’ing Goin’ on, or What? So what am I at? Depends on when you ask. If I started listing it could seem like I am doing a lot but if you were to poke your head in the front door, chances are you would find me playing Scrabble on my phone. By the way, […]


…..or This is Not a Blog About Camping I’m camping at Keji where the internet is unreliable so I will keep this post brief. I wanted some snacks to have with my tea. I don’t know why because I rarely drink tea, even when I am camping. I chose to make raisin buns, the traditional […]

I Loves Sunday Morning

…or Oh Me Arteries. Did I say why I likes Sunday mornings? It is because Sunday for me is Clog Your Arteries Day. Now that butter is off the ‘bad food’ list, bacon can’t be far behind so I am getting a head start. Eggs came off the list a while back. Did they not? […]

Tool of the Week #3

….or Meet My New Chicken Lifters. Once, a long time ago and far far away, while at work, I Googled “lifting techniques” to find some images for a presentation I was giving on how to use good body mechanics. Ha. I hit enter and the screen was flooded with thumbnail photos of boobs in all […]

Old Fashioned Goodness

….or Who Do You Think You’re Foolin’? (rant alert) I spotted this beverage at the fruit and vegie stand. They sell a lot of good stuff there besides the usual oranges and farm fresh eggs; you can buy blackstrap molasses, local honey and Amish cheeses. They had this beverage in a cooler by the counter. […]

Tool of the Week #2

…or No, Not HIM, silly, something much more useful. This week’s chosen tool is the humble melon baller. I have one in all my kitchens cause you never know when you are going to have to make a melon ball or two. It also comes in handy for coring pears: So that you can make a […]

Double Chocolate Crinkles

…..or Bring on the Carbs! I made these dipped cookies last year using gingersnaps but wasn’t crazy about them. I don’t think ginger and white chocolate a good marriage make. That’s not to say that we didn’t scarf them all back, but I wouldn’t repeat the recipe. But they were so pretty I had to […]

Happy Thanksgiving #2

….or Happy American Thanksgiving You might find it hard to be thankful these days but really, sit back and look at what you’ve got and think again. Besides that, Huffington Post has informed me that the Dalai Lama has no worries about the new president so I feel a little reassured. Anyhow, we really shouldn’t […]
