C’est Cheese

On the other side.

Cutting the lawn was never one of my favorite chores to do as a kid. Maybe because I loved running through the tall grass in my bare feet especially in the summer with the surprise of dew topped blades in the early morning. I remember fussing when my mom who would sometimes ask me to […]

How traffic helped save the day.

It started early this morning, when there were giant fresh muffins in the kitchen at work after our weekly staff meeting from Busken Bakery which I was able to avoid. (barely) Then I saw a donut on a friend’s Facebook page that was serious sugar porn and made me want to go up and eat […]

For others they are free from abuse,  torture, neglect, chains, kicks, cigarettes and the […]

Spare tire bits on a bun…

So the whole idea of not eating meat is celebrating ingredients that are not meat. I have realized the hard way that if you are not eating meat don’t try to eat items that attempt to imitate meat through over-salted, pressed soy product mushed into a dog, link, nugget, strip and for the love of […]

Saved by sangria…day four.

Well not exactly. A few weeks ago I made a sparkling sangria to celebrate a friend’s birthday and had stuck a bag of perfectly sweet and juicy grapes in the freezer to use instead of ice. Tonight I was looking for something sweet and had already had my allotted amount of dark chocolate chips for […]
