I am allergic to the phone. Seriously, this is a real thing. Right? Phone talking allergies? I hate making phone calls! Talking on the phone is the worst. Honestly, the thought of it sometimes makes me want to throw a tantrum. Love text messages hate talking on the phone and voicemail. Voicemail is the worst!…

10 days of Pure Barre

It may sound odd as a blogger, but I struggle with sharing. Sometimes I will hold back because I think to myself, “Why would they care?”. This is a primarily a food blog you come here to see food. So, sometimes I debate sharing anything else other than food. However, recently I have been very…

Civil War Project: Major Fail

I fully intended to write a post on my latest attempt using “Civil War Recipes: Godey’s Lady’s Book”.  In fact,  I would say that I tried my most ambitious recipe yet and tried to bake something. My first baking attempt was a Lemon Gingerbread.  The idea sounds tasty and after looking the recipe over I…

Why does it always take me so long to get back into the swing of life? Every single time I’ve had the slightest disruption in my regularly scheduled boring life it’s a struggle to get back to business. Which is why I may have slacked a wee-bit with posting. It was all worth it to…
