Chocolate Banana Bread

I don’t like regular banana bread – I will disguise it by making banana muffins or I will add chocolate chips to it or anything, really, rather than make plain banana bread. It has bad connections for me and I find it’s always…wet and heavy. Blech! I do like chocolate, though, and I always seem

Pickle Cookies

They aren’t cookies! Everybody just calls them that…because they’re round, maybe. I don’t know. I also don’t know what I would call them if I was in charge of naming them, so perhaps Pickle Cookies is good enough. I’m a little bit foul-mouthed, so who knows what they would have ended up being called. These

So….the saga of my laptop and the aftershocks of the last crash continue. I used an external hard drive to create a boot disk so I could reload windows onto my laptop and resurrect it. That did work. What I failed to remember (and I’m a former tech geek, so I should have) is that

We are still in the midst of a cold snap, so soup is on my mind all the time. It’s great for supper, great for lunch – warm, comforting, goes a long way, uses ingredients I have so I don’t have to go outside. Just before Christmas I bought a big bag of pre-cooked shrimp…then

The last of the rotisserie chicken needed to be used, but I don’t think that’s why the mancub suggested chicken a la king for supper. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t know why he suggested it – just something he likes and we haven’t had for a long while. Regardless, it worked for dinner since I

Watermelon Feta Salad

The scent of watermelon, cucumber, parsley and the stem of a tomato – all say summer to me. When Target was in Canada, trying to take over the retail market, they had a hand soap that was tomato vine scented. I was terribly upset when it was all gone. I like to get tomatoes on

I just started a part-time job…it’s a company I used to work for, but new position. The job market is brutal and I had an in, so I took it. Buuuuuut, I’ve been off work for the past year and almost one half, so this is an awakening. My brain hurts, my butt hurts (from

This evening, I came home from work to the smell of turkey broth, cooking in the slow cooker.  Smelled wonderful & comforting, but is that anywhere near what I wanted for supper?  Not even close! So, chicken on salad it is.  This is something I make frequently, particularly when I want fresh, crispy vegetables. The

Thursday, March 19 was a tough day, so comfort food was in order for supper. From the freezer some leftover tomato blue cheese soup, and from the pantry – grilled cheese sandwiches. Did I want regular grilled cheese sandwiches? Not really. So I Googled (as you do) grilled cheese with cream cheese. I found a

Friday night, about 11:15, my phone rings.  My daughter.  In our houses, we are texting maniacs but phone calls from any one of us are never ignored, because if one of us is phoning, something is up – emergency, wicked sale at Bath & Body Works – something.  I answer the phone to “Mom, can
