We enjoyed the company of my husband’s parents for five days over the holiday. They left this morning to return to Indiana. They are old people. And they act like it. Most of the time they drive us nuts, but sometimes they are a little amusing. Which makes putting up with all the bickering and [...]

I haven’t blogged this week because I’ve been so freakin’ busy at work doing the stuff they pay me to do that I haven’t had time to think. And yet Tuesday I came home and made the most complicated, most likely to be a disaster cake I’ve ever baked because I lack the common sense [...]
I grew up in Central Indiana, where we get a fair amount of snow. Then I moved to Middle Tennessee, where we don’t. Now I live in Southwestern Virginia, where, at least for the last five years, we get light snow. And then we had last night’s storm, which threw more snow on this region [...]
I am having a wee bit of booze tonight because we are snowed in with a bunch of snow that’s been falling for HOURS and will not stop so I’ve been drinking when not shoveling the driveway which we gave up on cause damn we can’t shovel it fast enough and where do we think [...]

I promise that once the holidays are over, me and several million other of my closest fattie friends are going to pretend we are all the biggest losers and get all religious about nutrition and excerise. That is then. This is now. And my hubby (from here on known as Hoylier, cause it’s an old [...]
Stay tuned for my first adventure in photoblogging. Today’s topic: German chocolate pies for work potluck celebrations for mine and my hubby’s office. Yes, there will be a sample pie that will be sliced and sampled. Recipes will be included. Let’s do this thing.
I’ve been busy. I know. Completely shocking at this time of year for anyone to claim to be busy. But I really have. And I miss writing on this blog. And I miss writing about food. And most of all, I miss trying to drop these pounds. I just have to get through the holidays. [...]
