Managing a food blog (and yes, I did say managing for those of you who snorted because it has become a rather time consuming hobby) can be very crucial to a happy home. There is a list a few pages, sticky notes and magazines clippings long of recipes I want to try, nibbles and bites that I would love to experiment with and ingredients I would have to do a google search to identify and find. I could fill 3 squares for 365 days plus snacks and desserts, never repeat a recipe once and probably only result in adding even […]

To prepare though, I have tried to eat as many […]

Shopping at the Walmart. You know, that store we all love to hate. Why is it that Walmart attracts the strangest sights? Is it just because it is always so packed that you are bound to see something interested or is it that Walmarts are like a flame/moths relationship and just bring out the WT in people? I hate to shop there but the other night we had a blender incident and I was in need of some parchment paper so at 10:30 at night, Handsome and I found ourselves stopping at the local big box chain to pick up a few […]
