    Kitchen Goals

    I was joking with my sister as we wrapped up the trip to DC that I was going home with new library goals, after having seen Jefferson’s library in the Library of Congress, and Julia Child’s kitchen at the Smithsonian. I could have spent hours in Jefferson’s library just taking notes of titles. You couldn’t…

    DeathClaw Steak and other Adventures

    So the Little Man is a big fan of Fallout. He’s explained the premise of the video game to me a few times, and I’m still a little fuzzy on what’s going on, but I’ve gathered that American culture, in the game, froze about 1950, but nuclear power got bigger than it did in real…

    Lemon Cream Cheese Thumbprint Cookies

    These have long been a favorite with my children, in no small part for the kinetic molding method (what kid doesn’t love to stick their fingers into cookie dough?) and because they are nearly infinitely customizable.

    WIP Snippet

    #amwriting I’ve been trying to write daily, and… well, I’ve been writing every other day. Since writing and blogging today just wasn’t going to happen, you’re getting a snippet of what I wrote today. It’s not a beginning, it’s part of a story but a chapter or two in, and I haven’t written the beginning…

    Kitchen Musings

    It’s my day over at the MGC and I was doing housework and let the blog slip my mind… sorry. I am working on a cooking project, have happily made my house cleaner, and helped my honey with a honey-do from his list (which didn’t go smoothly, but then, these things never do!). I’ve got…
