Currently 246 miles from home – and here’s what I’m doing… Re-learning to cook on an electric cooktop: Which seems almost archaic, given the fact that I’ve been using gas ranges for the past 15 years.

As The Queen Mother would say, “The days are long but the weeks are short”. How very…… Continue reading Thoughts and Randomness
Fun fact: exactly one year ago today, April 10, the posse and I packed up our bags (and Daisy), said goodbye to our friends in Vegas, loaded up Dad’s plane, and made our move to Austin. And quite frankly, my mother hasn’t forgiven me (or J) since… However, to say we love it here would…… Continue reading No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake – and an Anniversary!
