Peanut Butter Pie

I couldn’t even think of an adjective to describe this pie, it’s so good. Perfect? Well, almost. Scrumptious? Sounds like it’s from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Marvelous? Too comic book-y. Fantastic? Too 9th Doctor. So it’s just “Peanut Butter Pie” with whatever adjective you choose. And it’s delicious. I can’t take any kind of credit for […]

Christmas 2011

Weekend Waffles

What better to do after a weekend of grueling painting than to go on a 2 week vacation? (thank heaven for my wonderful job) (I didn’t go to the beach) (this is more of a quality time/check things off the Winter Goals list kind of vacation) And what better way to celebrate the beginning of […]

The Miracle of Chalk Paint

One of my favorite colors is purple. Not sedate lavender, or royal purple, but in-your-face-Barney-the-dinosaur-obnoxious-fuschia-purple. So when I moved into the place where I currently reside and had the option to paint anything any color– –of course I chose to paint something purple. Not just any something, either. My kitchen cabinets. Why the hell not? […]

The best Christmas that I’ve ever had with this side of the family was a few years ago when my […]

Apple Pie Fantastico

Barcelona Food Market

In March of 2008, Wonder Woman and I went on a whirlwind backpacking tour of a few European countries. We had no idea what we were doing, how we were going to do it, or where we would ultimately go. Each of us picked a city that we wanted to go to, and we both […]

Nora Mill and Whole Grains

Recently Earth Momma, her 8 year old daughter C, and I went to the North Georgia mountains for a mini-vacation. Unfortunately Black Hair, their youngest daughter, and El Guapo couldn’t make it to this weekend getaway but they were missed and we made sure to photo-document even more thoroughly. Even down to our entertainment misadventures. […]
