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!


The Therapy of Food and Company

Even in this age of keeping in touch on social media, nothing beats spending time with special people in person. When you live a couple of hours away from each other, though, that becomes challenging. Today, we met halfway between with our dear friend Amy, whom we lovingly call Vicar (and as a fellow fan of The Vicar of Dibley, she calls us her Hugo and Alice). We saw movie together and checked out a well-reviewed local restaurant, Bald-Headed Bistro. It was unique, cozy, tasty, and a perfect spot to catch up after a couple of turbulent years for all of us. We parted promising to get together again soon.
