Not so Famous Brownies

About a year ago, Tupelo Honey came to town and set up shop at Warehouse Row. Any restaurant that serves biscuits with honey and jam before every meal will certainly last in the South. Part of the wallpaper on the outside of the restaurant is a blown-up photo of a brownie recipe. Cool! It is hand-written onContinue reading “Not so Famous Brownies”


Self-portrait Holding Self-portrait, Snapshot of the Day, No. 365

My last image for my photo project vs. my first one. That stupid smirk on my face indicates I’m thinking. What I was thinking in both of these photos: Has the shutter gone off yet? I spent the year shooting images I only gave myself one shot each to get – with the intention ofContinue reading “Self-portrait Holding Self-portrait, Snapshot of the Day, No. 365”

Last Still Life – Snapshot of the Day, No 364

I can not tell you how long this orange sat in our kitchen window sill, but it was still good – and made for a nice still life. It did not go to waste. Joe ate it with his lunch … so, let’s hope it was still good. At any rate, it was my lastContinue reading “Last Still Life – Snapshot of the Day, No 364”

Balsamic Lime Vinaigrette – Snapshot of the Day, No. 363

So far, so good with my new diet to prevent migraines. One thing to avoid: processed foods. So, that means homemade salad dressing for my lunch. Again, this is from Gwyneth Paltrow’s new cookbook, “It’s All Good.”  

Basket Case – Snapshot of the Day, No. 361

I ducked out of work for a few minutes today to enjoy the sunshine and heat. It’s not often you get 60 degree weather in January. I shot this at The Barn Nursery….where they are offering 75% off of all their Christmas items if you’re interested. They have nice stuff, too. Anyway, the trees behindContinue reading “Basket Case – Snapshot of the Day, No. 361”

Muffin Tins – Snapshot of the Day, No. 360

I tried altering the corn muffin recipe today. I added chopped onions, fresh corn and red pepper flakes. And sugar. Got to have sugar to off-set all of that hot stuff. Best muffins of my short cooking career so far. Oh yeah, and I used almond milk again because I’m trying to avoid dairy rightContinue reading “Muffin Tins – Snapshot of the Day, No. 360”

Wampum – Snapshot of the Day, No. 359

When I was a little kid, our great grandmother lived with us. She taught me how to play poker and solitaire. She was so much fun, and I loved her very much. I never met my great grandfather because he died before I was born, but she told me he had been an honorary CherokeeContinue reading “Wampum – Snapshot of the Day, No. 359”

One Fare – Snapshot of the Day, 358

In our attempt to organize our house, I came across these coins the other day I had long forgotten I had. Cool! I have Euros, Shekels and various others I’m going to need my reading glasses to tell what they are. This one, however, was different. I have no recollection at all where I gotContinue reading “One Fare – Snapshot of the Day, 358”

Breakfast – Snapshot of the Day, No. 357

This is River. a.k.a. – Tubby, Tubby Rivers, Tub-Tub, Mr. Tubbs, Moo Moo, T.B. and Your Excellence. He’s our senior cat. The most loved and popular of our roost. He’s about 17 years old, has epilepsy and kidney failure. (I give him fluids several times a week) But he never complains. Our other two catsContinue reading “Breakfast – Snapshot of the Day, No. 357”
