Throwback Thursday: Back when I was the Cake Lady…

About 8 years ago, I quit my job at a large, well known company here in Atlanta so I could stay home and just be a mom to my girls, who were entering that awkward middle school age.

Manoomin, Anyone?

We’ve been doing so much grilling this summer, and eating so much fish since our trip to Florida, that I’ve been craving something different.  I saw some wild rice in my pantry that I had not used and though surely I could do something with that.  But what, was the question.

Well, I Didn’t Expect That…

So, I haven’t posted a blog in quite a while. Mostly because life has been crazy busy. Second, I just haven’t been cooking as much lately. With both kids gone, it seems like my husband and I work a bit longer into the evenings and there’s no mad rush to put a meal on the … Continue reading Well, I Didn’t Expect That…
