Welcome to my virtual kitchen!

I hope you enjoy your visit here, whether it’s your first time or your 30th. I first started sharing my recipes as Facebook Notes, until my friends started asking how they could share them with their friends; so I gathered my courage and tiptoed into the world of blogging via Tumblr. As interest in the blog started “cooking,” my wonderful hubby set me up at WordPress with my own domain. (All the content from my previous blog moved here as well.) Let me know what you think, and be sure to bookmark it for future reference!


Happy Valentrain’s Day!

For Valentine’s Day this year (our 21st together) we decided to do something extra special. A couple of years ago, we did a train ride at our local railroad museum for Christmas (the train took us to the North Pole to see Santa, who gave everyone a bell from his sleigh). Since then, we have talked about doing a dinner trip, and this year we did! The meal was elegant and delicious, the depot and train were decorated with red and pink and hearts, and we received red roses as souvenirs. As a special treat, we got to move to the lounge car after dessert to relax on the trip back. All in all, it was a five-star evening!
