I have some pretty serious tactile issues. Some things I just do NOT want to touch. Like slimey things.. or gooshy things. This is the reason I refused to even consider trying to make kombucha. I mean.. Look at this just … look at it. That’s a kombucha scoby. Scoby is an acronym for Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast…. Read more →
Evidently Pork Cake is a thing… probably a war time thing when eggs, butter and white sugar were rationed. Proof: My mom handed this to me yesterday.

Last night, I made Court’s Mongolian Green Beans and added Shrimp.. quick easy peasy dinner! So delish!!
I play an instrument you’ve probably never heard of (and by “play” I mean I plink away at some strings in a relatively melodic and rhythmic manner). It’s called the Appalachian Dulcimer.. or a Mountain Dulcimer. It actually has a pretty interesting history but I won’t bore you with it… You can Google it yourself and find lots of bits… Read more →
So I’m a bit behind (as per usual) on all kinds of things.. but mostly on my postings about the From Scratch Club book club. This time around we are cooking our way through Put ‘em Up! Fruitby Sherri Vinton. I already had Put ‘em Up! and I enjoyed a lot of the recipes but what is nifty about this… Read more →
