I can not tell you how happy I am to be in my new space and all set up after my big web hosting fiasco with Blogger/Google.  I still have a lot of work to do but at least I can create some recipes and work on all the categories […]


Baked Pineapple Curry Tofu with Fried Basmati Rice and Veggies

Two facts. 1. Waste and I are not friends. 2. Kids have no problem with waste. For example. I bought Band-Aids with Tinkerbell on them.Every morning my daughter asks me if she can have a Band-Aid. “Where is the booboo?” She inspects her hands, brow wrinkling in thought. “Right here.” […]
