Meatless Monday – Martha Style

I found this recipe in the April edition of Martha Stewart’s Living Magazine. It appears there (and on her website) almost exactly as I post it below – the one exception is that I’ve “veganized” it by using vegan parmesan cheese. This recipe had me at “one-pan”….well, and oreccehiette and probably olives too! Doesn’t it just look […] Read more…

Recent Reads

For a change of pace, I thought I’d share some of the recent books I’ve read – with a small review/recommendation of each. No worries, I promise not to share too much about each story as I wouldn’t want to ruin these tales for anyone! (FYI I’m trying out a new proofreading service –  Grammarly […] Read more…

Baseball Season Begins

This year we have both monkeys playing baseball – which means we’ll be getting tons of field time – and I’ll be getting tons of photos!! Here are some from week #1’s games: Hunter is playing AA ball this year. I’m not sure I can get over how very grown-up he looks already!! Westly is […] Read more…

Revisiting Myanmar

One of my favorite things to do, when I have the time (which is not often enough), is re-playing and re-editing photos I’ve taken in the past. This week, I decided to take a look again at some of the photos I took (and posted on Flickr) when we were in Myanmar. I then chose […] Read more…

Friday Fun – iPhone pics week of Feb 28

Here are a few photos snapped with my iPhone this week: Tried a new Japanese place near work for some tasty veggie sushi!! Blush Raw Bar – I’ll definitely be going back for more (I love the mint on the top of the roll)!! We got some rain (finally) this week, so this bulldog showed […] Read more…

Day at Disney

Seriously, I LOVE Disney….not as much as I love the two handsome guys above, but, truly, I LOVE it A LOT!!! (and I might add, that I don’t even pretend to understand those who don’t…I mean what’s wrong with having some fun with our imaginations – we ALL can use that!) So, during this past […] Read more…

Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!! I hope everyone will be able to spend some time with loved ones today….family….friends…both. Pops and I don’t usually do anything big on Valentine’s Day – just being together exchanging cards (often homemade) is special enough for us – plus I’m kinda that person who doesn’t really “love” to go out […] Read more…

Lentil & Veggie Soup (Dahl)

I LOVE lentils! There, I’ve said it. It’s true, I seriously could live on them! Yellow, red, green, brown…doesn’t matter, I LOVE them all! And now I have a simple standard recipe I make more than once a week – in my new PRESSURE COOKER! First, the pressure cooker story…. During the day, at work, […] Read more…

20 Years Ago – January 15, 1994

Crazy as it may seem, 20 years ago today, I met the man of my dreams. Me, on a weekend jaunt up to the Mendocino area (with my friend Sherry from work) to check out the area, hike and play tourists (neither one of us being native Californians). Jimi, on a winter surf trek to […] Read more…

New Year Knitting

Ahh, Happy New Year everyone!! I hope all your holidays were fabulous!! So, last year I took a knitting class….after which I proceeded to knit my first scarf for a dear friend and then I put away all the knitting paraphernalia….until now. Typical, right?! Well, typical of me anyways…so busy always to have trouble stopping […] Read more…
