This is the second time this week that luck had come up. The other was a Facebook friend asking if people believe in luck. I said that it’s a matter of perspective. If I dwell on the bad things that happen I feel unlucky. If I dwell on the good stuff, I feel lucky. And I always go for the good stuff because that’s the way my brain is wired. So…[Read more]
Squeezed for time! Lol😂😂! I love citrus season. I had two grapefruit due to your reminder a while back, and lemons and oranges thanks to my California friend. Not to mention lemon cake. And the oranges this year are outstanding. Maybe I should put limes on the grocery list and have some frozen Margaritas to round out the citrus taste testing for…[Read more]
I made a cake today too. A friend sent me oranges and lemons from her backyard trees. So today I made a lemon olive oil cake. It turned our surprisingly good. With olive oil in it, it could have been a disaster. I have book group this week and I’m in charge of dessert, so this was my practice run.

These past few weeks have been so dreary around here! I miss blue skies! They cheer me up and give me energy. The house I grew up in from age 11 until I left for college is set in the middle of a swamp/woods/fields. We couldn’t see any other buildings from our farmette. It’s probably just my imperfect memory, but I remember mostly blue skies…[Read more]
Whenever you paint donuts, I gain weight! Funny how that works. We live in an area where there is a small Amish community. They have a retail bakery on one of the farms. Every Saturday they make and sell fried raised donuts with plain white glaze. Those things are killer!
