Bad Cupcake

Here's a little funny for Sunday morning.... Last weekend I made a super yummy ultimate chocolate bundt cake - which used buttermilk in the recipe. I bought a big jug of buttermilk to make the cake. I have a bunch left....so I figured...why not just make it the same way, forget the chocolate in the... Continue Reading →

Why?

Why? Remember as a kid, you would ask your parents why they did something and they would try to explain? Finally, they would get sick and tired of all the questions and say, "Because, kid. There is no why, it just is." That's how it is with my writing. I don't know why I do... Continue Reading →

Big Year

Old Boots And A New Attitude

The Outgoing Introvert

I don’t know about you, but I am glad that crazy “Blood Moon” business is over. Whew…. Last week was a rough one. The crazy chain got broken over the weekend and sure enough, a new story is born. After running around like a chicken with my head cut off, I got a chance to... Continue Reading →
