Best to hand it over to someone who can do it and do it … [Read more...]

Lunatic Loves These Links- Feb 8

Mini-me back in the saddle! Hi folks. Another week has passed, it seems to have just vanished. I feel like I was just posting last week's Lunatic Loves These Links.

Christianna of Burwell General Store uses vintage cookbooks and every month she chooses one recipe for the group to adapt. There about 30 of us right now and some changes are coming to the swap.

Taco or Chip Dip for Dudes or Chicks Who Like Football aka Not Me!

Hi folks. I wanted to whip up a quick dip for all you football fans out there. I mean just because I hate sports and am boycotting the Superbowl doesn't mean I can't feed you right. Okay so I am not so much "boycotting" as I am "not watching it". But you know same dif right. So here is another example of me making things I do not eat. Kim does not do dip. Unless it's fruit dip, then I may partake. But veggie and taco dips not so much. I mean it's food....touching. I'd need a therapist after. … [Read more...]

Lunatic Loves These Links- Feb 1

Hi folks. Hope you are enjoying your week. They seem to fly by these days. Always so much to do. Been a crazy week here so far. I love my life because it is never dull. I always tell people I'd rather be busy than bored. Good thing I actually mean it. On Monday I had to go for an allergy test. I have a pretty wicked case of IBS, the thought was maybe it was not actually IBS and was something called mast cell disorder. So after a gazillion picks in my arm, an ice pack on my other arm to inspire … [Read more...]
