Cravings of a Lunatic Unplugged

food bloggers unplugged

Hi folks. I was honored to have Kym from Free Spirit Eater name me as one of her 5 fave bloggers. The company she had me was incredible and I felt a bit like that Sesame Street game. You know the one. "One of these things just doesn't belong here, one of these things just isn't the same, one of these is not like the others,". I am truly touched and overwhelmed by Kym's email. She is incredibly kind and I am lucky to call this lady a friend. It is amazing to me how food unites us, gives us common … [Read more...]

GenYFoodie-GuestPost-3

Hi folks! Did you miss me? I took a little hiatus while we were on vacation. I thought since we had not been away for 8 years, and it was quite likely our last trip together with just the four of us, that focusing on us having fun was the right thing to do. I am so glad I did. I think I only went online for about 2 minutes per day the entire time we were away. Some days I did not go online at all. It was a nice break. I shall share my trip with you tomorrow I promise. Today there is a … [Read more...]

Disney Rocks!

Hi folks. I know I went off the grid for a while. We are still in Disney. We decided to stay on an extra day. I also decided I wanted to take the time off so I've been completely out of the blog loop since we left days ago.

Then heading back with the hopes of making it home Tuesday night. So I shall catch up with everyone when we return. Just … [Read more...]

  Hi folks! So today is reveal day for the Burwell Vintage Recipe Swappers. I love being part of this group. It is so much fun to participate in. I know I swore I would never do a pizza for the swap again but little did I know Christianna had chosen pizza as our next challenge. So it's not my fault folks, you'll have to blame Christianna for this one. It was out of my hands. When someone gives me a pizza recipe to revamp it would be physically impossible for me to not keep it in the pizza … [Read more...]
