When we visited Lourdes in 2008, we ate a chicken dish at this restaurant, but I don’t remember much about it except that it had a winey sauce with a bit of bite, and that it had peppers, which I disliked as a child but now love as an adult. So when I was looking …
Suzanne over at the forum bumped up Nancy’s old thread on meatless soups, so I’m putting together a compilation of old posts here in case it would help. It’s soup season still, so I’m hoping to update old posts with pictures that got lost when I switched blog hosts and forgot to renew our old …
Today’s reading was a bit WOW for me, I’m kinda left speechless, so I’m limiting my “response reflection” to music and art. Here’s where I “journeyed” today…. some of my favorite Scripture verses. I thought it would be interesting to meditate on the beauty of God’s word, both the words themselves, in the Latin, in …
Last week, we spent a couple of days prepping and cooking for Saturday. We had some favorite people over as Aisa’s leaving for a 10-week internship in Michigan, Paco’s leaving for 7 (though he’ll be home on the weekends) and Migi will be gone for 3. We prepared so much food that our fridge is …
Sigh. So this gluten-free thing isn’t really working yet, as I still have a ton of stuff to get rid of from pantry, fridge, freezer. So next phase of the project is to get rid of everything. Hubby meanwhile (who’s the wheat-free guy) will only have the non-wheat stuff. This week’s menu: (will be linked …
I made the mistake of auto-updating my theme, and now everything’s messed up with Mantra, and I’m stuck with this generic theme. sigh….. it’s one of those days.
…. I just found out, is now available at Amazon! Here’s my original post on it, 5 years ago when it was younger : Utensibility Meme I was just going to post something about this workhorse of mine. The past three weeks it has made two batches of peppermint marshmallows, six batches of macarons (one …
Nope, I didn’t make these. Just sharing… my personal picks: From Inside A Black Apple From Amy Cluck, at Creature Comforts Blog From Mushy From Mrs. Greene From Simple Organized Living From The Paper Seed (my fave) From Mint Printables
… at fertilization. That’s the plain truth.
I know I’ve already got a Lentil Soup with Kale on here, but this one’s a bit different. More of a Middle Eastern take. It’s excellent as a fall soup, particularly when the leaves start falling and there’s a definite chill to the air. Serve over brown rice, or some homemade pita. Or not, since …
I finally found *the* one…. and realized just how visual I am. at Folded Space — a png file It’s tempting to do a post on “GTD for Homeschoolers”… except I wouldn’t know where to begin.

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while. We’ve made butter often enough in our DLX, but I’ve been wanting to try making it with Snowville Creamery’s heavy whipping cream (*not* ultra-pasteurized) since it became available at Whole Foods. The other — also important — reason for making butter is that I’m in love …

Just so thrilled to find out that the Senior Product Designer at Vera Bradley is Elit Hoover who’s Filipina. There’s a brief interview featuring her in the latest (Spring 2010) Vera Bradley catalog. Because I tended to lose things, I wasn’t a bag person until Vera. I put off buying a pretty bag for so …
