I did this thinking I was not going to watercolor it… I think maybe I liked it better that way! This feels is a neverending crisis, made worse by our politicians (yes I am looking at you Kate Brown). The … Continue reading
*sigh* My first failure, sorta… Yellow Eye Bean did not deserve that! I put the beans in water to soak and forgot them and they soaked a LONG time, too long. I also put the wrong liquids in the pot … Continue reading
In my order I bought the Cassoulet Book; I love reading cook books for inspiration, and this one is inspiring. I doubt I ever make the Real Deal — not likely to buy duck and so forth. But I will … Continue reading
Trust me, you are going to get bored hearing about my bean adventures… but Rancho Gordo and their beans are keeping me going in this pandemic! I have ordered many different types of beans and *SHOCK* I can taste the … Continue reading
I rarely do layerings but my Rona journal has lots of them, above! My hunny wants his chocolate!! I have been making fudge with what I had on hand (I ordered supplies now so soon the fudge will be made … Continue reading
Finally received the box of beans from Rancho Gordo… Been reading about them, and now I had to have beans… a staple during this damn Rona visit. I started with 1 lb of the big fat White Lima beans. They … Continue reading
A package arrived in the nick of time… I was desperate for an onion and we were out of coffee! An unexpected package from Marianne in Idaho brought us both, plus color in ink samples and a lovely hand-painted card! … Continue reading
Most of you think masks now and think of Covid-19… But we use masks every day with filters, and now we cannot get the filters! They can’t sell anything mask related to us; everything is all about the virus. I … Continue reading

Roast Chicken from Carman Ranch! A total gift to be delivered from the ranch… humanely raised and killed, this meets our requirements so it was a lovely break from beans and rice. And of course, the end of the bits … Continue reading
Depression’s antidote? Dance! Music! You may notice I’ve been adding to my posts with songs at the bottom… I’ve bee playing loud rock and roll while I worked this week and last — Helps me not get too down… layers … Continue reading
Mitchell had an idea for a quiche flavor… So when the six dozen eggs were delivered (I had not ordered) I had to use some of them up — and quiches make for nice fast studio dinners when we are … Continue reading
Heavenly smokey spicy quiche! Andouille Sausage makes a wonderful yummy quiche! I bought it to make a jambalaya but never got around to it and so, had these humanely raised sausages in the freezer. The heat from both Poblano and … Continue reading
Did you know you can write on the inside of an Alter Eco wrapper? Tipped in this wrapper…. things we miss! Then I could also use it as a painting surface! These bars are almost too sweet for me. Butter … Continue reading
Mitchell loves fudge… While I was doing all this cooking, I surprised him with an experimental fudge. I used four Altar Eco Deep Dark Salted Burnt Caramel Chocolate bars in place of the bag of chocolate chips! It melted easily … Continue reading
