Flipped Out Casserole Appetizers

Life is busy.  It’s busy enough with work, church, school, taking care of home, family, etc., but every now and again life gets REALLY busy.  Silly, stupid busy.  You begin to lose sleep and worry how you’ll meet all your responsibilities.  Even the ones you have imposed upon yourself, such as writing a weekly foodRead More

O Happy Pear

Why Is Joe Sloppy?

The Story:   Happy National Sloppy Joe Day!  In Wednesday’s blog I took a tiny walk down memory lane from elementary school days and in particular Friday’s “fun food” options.  Last week when I decided to bring Sloppy Joe to our dining table, I had no idea that today, Sunday, March 18 was a dayRead More

Cafeteria Memories

Unlike Cas, I attended a very small elementary school.  There were probably 200 kids in the whole 1-6 give or take a few.  I have many fond memories of elementary school days.  Some of my favorite teachers come from those times and a few set me on the creative path I am now living.  IRead More
