Kitchen Delights

These hot, humid days, I stay inside as much as possible. I’m one of those people who hate this kind of weather! The poor construction people, who have to work in this heat. Even Alaska is getting real hot weather. They probably don’t have air conditioners in their homes. I’ve been looking through...
I have this amazing little cookbook, it’s called “Sweets,” small batch desserts. You’re craving something sweet and just can’t stop thinking about it. Normal-size desserts are usually in a 9x13 inch pan. If you make it for two people, it will last a week, and by then, you are not craving it...
Can you think of one food that is served in most homes at least two times a week? Yes, it’s pizza. You heat it, and eat it; eat it when it’s hot, eat it when it’s cold; reheat it for a snack. Most people buy pizzas in the grocery stores; what a variety you can find. Yet, the best is when you make...
When the temperature is just around 80 degrees with no humidity, that’s the weather I like. I’ve had three major projects on my to-do list, and I just finished the last one. What a great feeling. I’m going to reward myself by going shopping to my two favorite stores. Because I don’t drive anymore...
I remember when I went to school. Some of us walked, some rode a mule, to that one-room school upon a hill. Our one teacher had 40 scholars. Her monthly wages was 60 dollars. She taught eight grades from 9 to 4, then banked the fire and swept the floor. Her subjects were not just two or three, she...
On Friday, my daughters, Michele and Mary, came out to Hanover. First, we went to Vergin Sales in Rockford. What a great selection of chairs and sofas they have. It’s nice to pick out the style you like, and then order a different fabric you like. After furniture shopping, we went to several...
Every year I tell myself I’m not going to purchase so many flowers. I go to some of my favorite nurseries, and I go crazy. Oh, it has so many beautiful hanging flower baskets, and, of course, I have flowers to plant in the flower pots that are on the deck. The flowers that I got for Mother’s Day...
Memorial Day is a day we remember each and every man and woman who served in our military, the men and women who have fought in our wars. Also, remembering moms, dads, grandparents, who prayed for their loved ones, praying for their safety. Blessings to everyone serving. Also, to our president and...
Hope all Mothers had a wonderful Mother’s Day with their families. I’m going to be at my daughter’s home in Wisconsin. She and her husband have a hobby farm. I’ll get to see all the animals. They have two donkeys, and I don’t know how many goats. They had four goats that had babies. They are the...
May is here! What an April we had. Never in my 80 plus years, do I remember seeing weather change so quickly. The transformation of the winter weather turning over to spring in one-week’s time, was the highlight of my week. I’m so happy the cold weather is gone; the arthritis in my joints feels so...
