Tonight I F-ed Up a 5 Hour Soup

No seriously, I did.  My French onion soup recipe is a labor of love and swearing and praying to the onion gods. When I was done, I tasted it and went "ummmm NOPE."  It completely lacked the depth of flavor that I'm used to and was a tad bitter.  Bitter is no problem, add some... Continue Reading →


Mother’s Day Thoughts – 2018

It's Mother's Day Eve, and I'd like to send out a warm 'I f-in love you, man' to my husband, Rob. Robert. Roberto. Mister Man. You know, that guy. Why? Well for starters, he tells me if I have boogers. He stays out of my way when I get the 'oh my god I have... Continue Reading →

That's whale for "you're welcome". Finding Dory, anyone? Ok moving on. I'm noticing that I seem to write most on snow days. Newsflash: New... Continue Reading →

Snow Day Warm Up

So I'm making honeybell tangelo infused vodka. That's what people do on snow days, right? Rob and I were supposed to go out for a much needed and often postponed date tonight but Mother Nature decided we should get snowed in again. Real nice of her. So we are sitting here with the kiddo watching... Continue Reading →
