Bolognese for Dinner! Did you read the book ‘Girl with the Pearl Earring’? In the opening scenes of the book, the young girl is chopping vegetables and lining them up according to color. Here’s my version. I am making this recipe for Bolognese. And I’m sure I pronounce it wrong too. I found the recipe […]

Ahhh to be 3....

I’m playing with Photoshop Elements 6. My new toy. Blurring the background. I’ve been trying to figure out how to do this for a long time now. In elements, top layer gaussian blur set to 15, then select the part you want to erase with the magic selection tool, and hit delete. Then zoomed in […]

Salmon

This is the only salmon dish I have made and truly liked. The hubby even likes it. The jalapeño, pineapple, and maple-y/mustard-y make for a weird but seriously, 5 stars-kind-a yummy flavor. And crazy easy to make. The rice takes longer to cook than the salmon part start to finish. I had an avocado that […]

Fast Food Library

2008 February 7

I love that my library has an online ‘hold’ system. This saves me actually having to walk around the library, (who has the time? all those books calling out to you–‘Hollywood, come and get me, Hollywood’), and the book you might want probably isn’t in.

A weekly fav around here

Customizable mini pizzas! I cheat on these and thaw Rhodes rolls for the pizza dough. As long as I remember early enough to grab them out of the freezer, the rest is easy and painless. I make the pizza sauce from a can of tomato sauce (just add a bit of garlic salt, and crushed […]

Are you Drunk?

One more new category. Current passions. Could be crafting or something to do with the kids’ school or figuring out how to alter my blog’s background image (for hours and hours and even when I find the right code to make it stop that annoying tiling effect it ends up still being the wrong size)(!)—oh, […]

Cap'n Crunch Anyone?

2008 February 6

My children hate cereal. How can that be? Once in a blue moon Okay, weekly— I punt breakfast and make my kids eat cold cereal. I thought cold cereal was king when I was a kid. My favorite? Probably Golden Grahams. Mine all moan, ohhhh noooo NOT cereal! They tell me they don’t like the […]
