I Made This – Pizza and Wine!

I can't believe I made this - pizza and wine! And by 'made this', I mean I made everything in this image by myself and from scratch. I made the wine and I made the pizza. I made the dough - I let it rise, punched it down and shaped it into pizza crust.  I made the sauce, from tomatoes I canned last summer and

Did You Know You Can Make Wine at Home?

Did you know you make wine at home? And for a fraction of the cost of the box wine you've been choking down? I've been sitting on this information for several months now. I've meant to share it with you, but damn it's been a busy summer.  I started making wine this summer and it's some of the most fun I've had in a long

30 Days Without Wine and Chocolate: Day 3

It's day three without wine or chocolate and I'm pretty sure I want to rip someone's head off. I don't care who really (though, the ex husband who is harassing my via lawyer and lawsuit would probably be the best choice). I'm trying to be strong but all I want to do is curl up on the couch and sleep or kill someone. But, I

More than you ever needed to know about Champagne

I love wine. I fell in love with it when I visited Italy in the late 80's. In fact I was given the nick name Vino because of my love of wine. I'll drink other adult beverages like beer and spirits, but I really prefer wine because it seems so civilized. Wine has gotten a reputation for being healthy in the last decade or so

I’m Working On My Book Again

I was originally going to steal Kathy's What's That post and just put this picture up and have you guess what it was. I was going to post a smaller picture obviously but when I was taking the picture my son ridiculed me for falling back on filler that wasn't my schtick. Apologies to Kathy who does it much better. My son suggested I write

Giving Up Carbs

I'm going to give up carbohydrates. I'm going to give up my precious carbs for a week.  And I am going to document it here. I have to. Bathing suit season is still far enough away that there might be some hope for me. I also have to because I ate the most ginormous waffle today and I don't think I could look

Ch Ch Ch Changes

There could be a few more "ch-ch"s in there, I'm really not sure. I have made my move over to my own domain using Wordpress. I'm still fiddling with it so don't be surprised if it changes several times in the next few weeks. In fact it will probably change if you hit the refresh button. I've switched the theme so many times in the
