My blogs

About me

Location Kansas City, Missouri
Introduction I took some time off to spend with my family (I have an amazing 14 (yikes she is now 17) year old daughter and a wondrous husband), to cook, to blog, to make limoncello and other liquors, to brew beer, and to write a cookbook. Well, I finished the kindle and print version of the appetizer edition of Everything is Better with Beer. I am working on a full cookbook. I am working again.... So..... I will be once again balancing family, working, blogging, writing, cooking, and gardening....
Interests Cooking, gardening, eating, reading, hiking, sewing, photography, and biking.
Favorite Music An eclectic mix from classic to county to rock to punk... Coldplay, U2, Smashing Pumpkins, Pat Benatar, the Go Gos, the Ramones, the Killers, and the Beatles
Favorite Books This is an incredibly difficult question for someone who loves to read-- I will give it my best shot (and I am including favorite authors, poems, plays, and short-stories): Siddhartha, The Hobbit, The Lottery, Edgar Alan Poe, Mark Twain, The Waste Land, Good Omens, Medea, Antigone, Ethan Frome, The Lady or the Tiger, The Child of the Morning, The Joy of Cooking, and The Golden Bough.
