— March 10, 2017

Okay, my chili recipe is not really going “viral” in technology community terms but it’s as close to “viral” as I will ever get. Haven’t you always wanted to say that something you shared went viral? And not the “oops” photo or ill-mannered comment that someone caught during one of your low moments, but something…


Cherry Pie Bars

I have been in recipe testing mode lately and these Cherry Pie Bars are definitely a “keeper”. A neighbor and friend of mine has graciously accepted the duties of taste-tester while I am working on family recipes and my own concoctions. It’s a very “full-filling” job. I pointed out to her that we did…

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and since I missed out on celebrating May Day by making my little May Day baskets – because I was a day behind – I need to get organized. I have discovered that Mother’s Day works best in my house of wee ones if I set the stage…

Ok, let’s get to the good stuff first. On Sunday I posted a photo of some cupcakes and asked you to guess what was wrong with the picture. I mentioned that anyone who guessed correctly would receive one of my newly designed  “hot off the press”  dreamkeepers (journal/notebooks) and a set of note cards…
