Creamy Tomato and Zucchini Tortellini Soup and some not very good reasons why I’ve been gone so long.

  Before I get into anything at all, I do realize that an apology is in order. I’m sorry. I’m so very sorry that I just flat-out dropped off the face of the earth, like Batman in Batman Begins when that hottie patottie, Christian Bale, leaves Gotham in search of his inner Batman. But he did eventually return to Gotham, ravaged and wretched with havoc, as I have returned to my blog, worn and weary not unlike that fair yet dark city.

Fast and Easy No-Crust Quiche. . . .with Spinach, Ham, and Colby Jack or however you like.

 I am not my mother. It is such a travesty. I am tired. She never was. She is beautiful, well-groomed without reproach. I forgot to comb my hair and take a shower yesterday.

I know that Read more […]

15 Minute Dinner: Marguerita One Pot Pasta and not one darn 2014 resolution.

No 2014 resolutions here. Nope. Not me. Not going to do it. Not because I’m not into it, I totally am. I had a list of things that I was going to tell you I was going to do, but then fail at them.  Which is what I usually do, but no worries, because it never really bothers me much anyway. Which, is probably WHY my resolutions go no where FAST. It never bothers me because I’m of the vain, that everyday I wake up I try to be better. Some days I am better. Other days (like yesterday) I Read more […]
