I have learned to dip things in chocolate

I just sent my "baby" Terri home with a big container full of chocolate goodies. She bought one of those things that melts the chocolate and shows you how to make goodies with it. First... don't buy one of these. Just melt your chocolate in a double boiler for goodness sakes. Second, some things... Sign in to see full entry.

Finger Licking BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

I am running late again. (Aren't I always?) I think this is why Mike always did the cooking. I have my fingers in 40 pies. I still have to exercise today. I still have three more blogs to write. Tom just called. He is bringing a friend home for dinner. The place is a mess. I have a headache. And...... Sign in to see full entry.

An Easter Sunday Surprise

I did not make Easter dinner. Tom's room mate, Jackie, invited Tom and I to her mother's home for dinner. Now I was a bit nervous about this.

A burger, fries and sauce?

As I write this I am thawing burger, baking french fries, listening to my voice mails, planning dinner for Saturday (we are having company for dinner) listening to an episode of "Law & Order" and trying to figure out what to wear tonight. I am also worried about a very tired Tom who has been running... Sign in to see full entry.

A Review - Frozen Crockpot Dinners - Chicken and Dumplings

I never realized just how long cooking from scratch takes until I had to do it on my own. Micheal always cooked everything from scratch and it never seemed to take anytime at all. But that was because I was busy working on my business, someone else's book or my blogs so I did not truely pay... Sign in to see full entry.
