When I was a little girl, I had three idols: She-Ra, Jem, and Rainbow Brite. In three consecutive years, from first grade through third, I agonized and obsessed over the opportunity to be any of the three for Halloween. Fact: I was She-Ra once. In the first grade, I got my wish, and I was […]...

It’s Black Friday today. Here, in the U.S. Stupid, stupid Black Friday. You may recall that I ventured out on Black Friday last year. I was in Minnesota, and things were pretty tame; nothing as wild as I anticipated. This year, though, I’m in Oregon, and all signs point to there being high levels of […]...

My husband doesn’t understand Internet Life. He thinks that people have to know each other or something to be friends. That’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever heard of. I have lots of friends who I’ve never met In Real Life (IRL). I mean, we move all around all the time, so I have tons of […]...

I was talking to my friend, Tina, a few weeks ago about Yule logs; whether we’ve made them, good recipes for them, etc., when I was struck with inspiration. Why wait until Christmas for a Yule log?! I know that there is a lot of tradition surrounding the Yule log, but it’s so yummy, I […]...

Did you guys know that it was Hermione’s birthday last week? September 19th, to be exact. Technically, she turned 33 years old this year. You may recall that I have established that, had my letter not been lost, the Trio would have been the Quatro. Whatevs. Last week, on the morning of Miss Granger’s birthday, […]...

These cookies gave me writer’s block. Really. I had this great idea to make them. I made them. They were delicious. I ate them. Then, I sat down to write this post. After staring at my keyboard for way too long, without having a single thought, besides how much I just wanna go eat another […]...

If you follow me on Facebook, you probably know that I’ve been running in the mornings. Usually. I mean, mostly. I run most mornings. It really just depends on whether it’s too hot. Or early. Or late. Or whether I’m tired, or hungry. Anyway. I usually go, but I’ve lost some of my oomph for […]...

September is in full swing…the train has carried the kiddies off to Hogwarts, the nights are getting crisp and cool, and the leaves are even starting to change colors. Somewhere. Not in the Virgin islands, where it is hotter than hot. Granted, there’s still those less hot days when it’s just a hurricane outside instead. […]...

Now that the holidays are truly in full swing, I have lots of fun, seasonal treats to share with you, but before I get into that, I have something for our furry babies today (and just in time for Cookie Week too)! You may remember, just before Thanksgiving, I talked about my pooch, Loki’s, birthday and […]...

Yesterday I admitted my dislike for pumpkin pie. Today, I want to let it be known that my dislike doesn’t extend to all things pumpkin. One of my favorite treats ever is fresh pumpkin bread and I love pumpkin seeds, but even though I don’t like pumpkin pie, that doesn’t mean I don’t have a […]...
