Recipes and Cooking Ideas for Homemakers and Amateur Cooks

Hi from OHIO!

Here I am, equipped with my feather-duster, ready to dust off this site again. Ah, how I missed it! I had a list a mile long that I had to get done before I was going to allow myself to start posting again. But, I’m pretty gracious, especially with myself (sigh!), and I let that little rule slide. Not totally slide though, I did get about 3/4 of the things done that I wanted to.

So, have any of you ever moved? Do you know how much WORK it is?! You have to still do the laundry, make meals, take care of the kids, go scrapbooking, clean the house, PLUS decorate the house, unpack boxes, and fit everything into cupboards and closets. And it doesn’t all fit quite as good as it did… you know how when you go grocery shopping and you’ve got a full cart, then you put it all on the checkout counter and when you load it back into the cart bagged up, the cart is overflowing and you’ve still got 5 more bags to put in it. So, I have quite a few things that don’t have homes yet. Like the Kleenex box. It is on top of the fridge, but how many guests will manage to spy it up there? And the spices, I need to figure out a better system for them. They have a home, but not a very organized one. …Not like I’m stuck on being organized or anything.

I think for the next while, my house will be like a Rubikscube (I have no idea how to spell that, so just sound it out and you’ll know what I mean). Once everything is in place, I’ll still be changing this and changing that till it feels right.

Anyway, I’m not posting a recipe right now, just checking in to say Hi and that you’ll be seeing more action on this site again now.

And if you ever get bored, make a duck bill with Pringles chips…

    Hi Kay,
    At last you’re back. Lexi looks like Jan on that pic. We’re looking forward to your recipes and pics coming back. I thought you ought to name your first official post, Cooking Is Back On The Burner, or something like that. Actually, Sometimes when I checked in; I thought that’s what I was seeing. Imagine my disappointment!

    Kay — I’m so glad to see you back!! I’ve been thinking about you a lot lately. I’ve been doing a lot of home cooking and have used several of your recipes. Since you’ve been gone we had a horrible thing happen in our family and my husband was diagnosed with Leukemia. He’s doing chemo now which has messed with his taste buds so I’ve been trying all kinds of new recipes trying to find things he actually likes. So far the only thing that does it for him are sweets. So….I’ve been making lots of desserts which my hips are absolutely loving but I’m not loving my hips! ????

    How was the move? Are the girls happy in their new home? My hubby is from Ohio — Akron. I love that state. It’s so pretty and green. It is much different than Wisconsin?

    Welcome back! I’ve missed reading your blog and have been checking back every few days, waiting eagerly for you to be ready to start up again!

    I’m glad you made the trip safe and sound. Good luck on settling in to the new place & finding homes for all of your stuff. Can’t wait until you’re ready to start posting recipes too!

    Hi and good morning,
    I am orginally from Columbus, Ohio. I love Ohio, but live in TX now. Anyway, I wanted to invite you to my scrapbooking website. I see you scrapbook, and we have a wonderful “project center” with lots of idea. It is
    Then, click on the project center. I hope you can garnish at least one good idea from there.
    I will check out your recipes, as I also love to cook. My children are mostly grown now so I do not cook quite as much, but do enjoy it. God bless always,
    Mary in Wichita Falls, TX
