Toast Tuesday: the cake

I just celebrated another year on the planet with a food feast. I love being the host. It gives me such great satisfaction to prepare a meal that feeds not only the belly, but the soul. It feeds my soul to get in the kitchen, play around, and to pour my heart into something thatContinue reading “Toast Tuesday: the cake”

looking back at bliss

I leave for work when it’s dark.  When I get home it’s almost dark.  Tonight it is raining so hard, we are all concerned about getting washed away.  So, going out to take pictures is not high on my priority list. What does my bliss look like?! I really had to give this some thought.  IContinue reading “looking back at bliss”

Where has time gone?

While I have been working non-stop the last few months, I have managed to find time to have some fun, bake a few yummies, drink a few (several) cocktails, and eat some fabulous grub.  I’ve been making notes and have the starts for several blog posts. I have taken a few days off work to…Continue reading “Where has time gone?”

Lemony Lemon Ginger Scones

Baking for a Cause: The Trilogy… If it hadn’t been decided earlier (which I am sure it had) Lula’s Kitchen will never be a breakfast joint.  A) I’m not a huge fan of eating breakfast and B) I don’t like making breakfast.  And these past few weeks of baking for my big day of RebuildingContinue reading “Lemony Lemon Ginger Scones”

Life gave me lemons so I made candied lemon peels

I make no bones about working 2 jobs and going 90mph through life.  As the saying goes, a rolling stone gathers no moss, but I figure that also holds true to germs and cooties as well.  I stay healthy by getting 8 winks a night, a good diet, and lots of walking. Well, the cosmosContinue reading “Life gave me lemons so I made candied lemon peels”

little miss muffin

We surround ourselves with people who compliment us.  Of course we aren’t going to hang out with someone who constantly tells us how fat we are or how bad we look.  The other compliment.  Their skills and traits are a good balance for our skills. I am the cook.  I am not the baker.  IContinue reading “little miss muffin”

what are you reading?

I’ve mentioned before how much I love my library. Multnomah County Library even has an app. How cool is that?! I meet some hot guy in a bar and we get to talking about Tolstoy and Gorey and I can just add books to my reserve list right there. (we won’t discuss the rudeness ofContinue reading “what are you reading?”
