An Excuse to Make Reubens

Excuses.  Do you find them or do they find you?  I sit down to write and it is always something.  The dog wants to go out.

Mindset Reset: Midwestern Alfredo

Part 2: Mindset. A gigantic proportion of my blogging mindset was wrapped up with “authenticity” of recipes.  I haven’t done a genetic test but I come from a vast group of different nationalities.  I can’t claim anything I like to cook is one hundred percent derived from any one country.   I spend a considerable amount of time …

Controversy.  I was talking to a friend last week and finally pinpointed why I haven’t felt like blogging and it is all because of controversy. The last thing I ever wanted to do on this forum was to stir up controversy but lately it seems like there is a dispute about every topic in the world including …

Menu Bored

She was tired.  You can see it in her eyes for they lacked a sparkle.  You can see it in her smile as little frown lines become more permanent.  Even how she stands looks like a person who is about to fall over.   It wasn’t because she was deprived of sleep, it was because she was starting to …
